Nestled on a quiet and exclusive cul-de-sac within the sought-after Highland Creek neighbourhood, and surrounded by a lush tree canopy, welcome to 15 Acland Crescent.
A beautifully renovated ranch-style bungalow, this home features a two car garage with plenty of driveway parking; meticulously landscaped front gardens lining an interlocking patio and front entry; as well as a dream backyard oasis backing onto a ravine setting.
Double entry doors with opaque glass and wrought iron inserts open into a marble-tiled foyer with a mirrored accent wall, inviting you into a nature-inspired Great Room finished with hardwood floors – showcasing a living room with a wood panelled wall and accent trim – and a formal dining room with a built-in display cabinet with interior accent lighting. A corner wood-burning stone fireplace adds a warm, cozy touch year round.
Pot lighting and a modern chandelier complement the abundant natural light through the two walls of windows and a skylight in the stunningly renovated kitchen and its breakfast area. With access to the garage, as well as walk-outs to the side yard and a balcony overlooking the backyard – the kitchen features a study nook with a modern live edge counter, abundant cabinetry and pantry storage with molded uppers; a granite countertop with breakfast seating; upgraded tiled floors; and built-in cooktop with an island range hood, built-in wall ovens and dishwasher, double door fridge with bottom mount freezer, and double under mount sink.
Off the living room is a sliding door walk-out onto the balcony overlooking the backyard oasis, and which is finished with glass inserts in its railing to maintain unobstructed views of the ravine setting; the play structure; the landscaped gardens; and the deck, hot tub, and the in-ground pool.
This home enjoys both a south- and north-facing exposure – and almost every window has silhouette shades – while pot lighting, modern chandeliers, and contemporary light fixtures throughout the home bring additional accent brightness.
Off the foyer is a side hallway leading to a newly updated 5-pc washroom. This section of the home includes the three main level bedrooms – with the first of these rooms finished with wainscoting, built-in shelving, a 2-pc ensuite washroom, and a mirrored door double closet. The second and third bedrooms overlook the backyard and ravine – and all three of these bright, light-filled rest spaces are finished with hardwood floors.
A light- and dark-coloured railing surrounds the open space above, and continues along with, the hardwood staircase to the lower level. Fully finished, this level features an open concept recreation area with cozy broadloom, a built-in oak media unit with fireplace, chair rail, pot lighting – and plenty of room for entertaining and family enjoyment. The laundry room adds incredible storage to the home with its abundance of cabinetry space, and features a beautifully tiled floor as well as front load washer and dryer. A cozy conversation area is centred around the warmth of a gas fireplace with floor-to-ceiling brick facing, and off the recreation space is also a mirrored door closet as well as a powder room.
Through a double French door entry is the luxurious master suite. Finished with wide plank laminate flooring, this retreat features California shutters on its windows; two mirrored door closets, as well as a walk-in closet with organizers; and showcases a new and stunningly finished ensuite washroom with beautifully tiled floors and bath area with jetted tub, an oversized shower area with rain and steam showers, as well as opaque glass block accent windows, a floating vanity with double basins, and a French door entry.
The lower level has two walk-outs — one from the games area, while sliding doors open to a partially covered flagstone patio that stretches almost the full length of the home. Stone steps lead down to another flagstone patio by the pool, which is fully fenced and has built-in dockside seating and a custom-built pool house for storage, as well as to a wooden deck with gazebo and bench seating. There are separate concrete and stone steps for side and front yard access – while another set of stone steps leads down to an expanse of lawn space. The backyard is breathtaking, filled with both landscaped gardens, as well as lush shrubs and majestic trees – and the rear of the property has a small stream running through it, with a quaint bridge spanning it.
An entertainer’s dream home, and a truly spectacular retreat within the city, this wonderful family home is walking distance to Bramber Woods Park, public transit, places of worship, and a shopping plaza; is close to public, Catholic and private schools; as well as being just a short drive to University of Toronto and Centennial College campuses, the Pan Am Sports Centre, and access to Hwy 401.
