It’s easy to picture yourself living well here.
45 Stuart Street is a 6-bedroom, 5-bathroom home that was originally built in 1885 and has been lovingly updated. Its appeal is immediate, set back from the road with a stately exterior, the home has a private walkway flanked by two stone pillars, a crushed stone driveway, an elegant wrap-around covered porch and is surrounded by mature trees and lush landscaping. It offers 4,209 sq ft of living space.
As soon as you step inside, you’re greeted by the light and bright interior, from the sun streaming into the foyer to the inviting living room. A cozy dining area features a wood-burning fireplace and a grand staircase nearby (one of two).
The serene blue-and-white chef’s kitchen will appeal to home cooks and those who like to entertain. The space boasts lots of cupboards, counterspace and storage, as well as stainless-steel appliances. The kitchen is open to a family room that has a beautiful gas fireplace.
Be sure to stop and notice the details in this home: the high ceilings, the large windows, the intricate medallions on the ceilings, and the meticulous woodwork and trim throughout.
Two staircases lead to the second floor, which hosts 4 bedrooms. The impressive primary suite comes complete with skylights, a gas fireplace, and a private back deck with lots of room to lounge and soak up the sun.
It also has a gorgeous ensuite bathroom with a gas fireplace, luxurious soaker tub, glass-framed shower and a balcony that overlooks the garden. There is even a coffee nook that includes a kitchenette with a dishwasher.
There are so many spots to enjoy being outdoors—or simply being surrounded by the outdoors.
The screened-in sunroom is a big draw, as is the covered back patio with lots of room to dine, BBQ and entertain friends and family. Thanks to the home’s southern exposure and extensive decking, there are lots of areas where you can enjoy every minute of the good weather.
The home even has a completely self-contained second unit. This 2-storey, 2-bedroom home has 2 full washrooms and its own laundry.
“The original home was built in 1885 and with great care and consideration the perfectly mastered addition was completed in 2017. The way that the two blend together look as though they have been as one from the beginning,” says listing agent Andra Arnold. “The main part of the home has maintained its historical integrity with the moldings, woodwork and regal staircase, while the addition has allowed adding the modern-day conveniences of a new home.”
Nestled in the heart of St. George’s Park, the home is in a quiet neighbourhood with numerous schools nearby, and some of the most amazing homes surround Stuart Street.
