$2,790,000 for a luxurious Euro-inspired home on a private riverside cul-de-sac
Address: 306 Waterstone Place
Agent: Kelley McIntyre, Michael Leff, Royal LePage Triland Realty, Brokerage
A stunning, luxurious three-bedroom home located on a private cul-de-sac on the banks of the Thames River.
Before you even see the price tag, certain homes practically scream “different tax bracket.” This is one such home. At a nearly $2.8 million list price, this may not be a home for everyone, but for those in the market for an exquisitely designed, stylishly accented and topped with the only residential copper roof in the city, then we’ve got the listing for you.
You could start with the location: tucked away in a wooded enclave backing on to the Thames River and only a short walk away from the Thames Valley Golf Course, this is a perfect for anyone who wants to feel like they’ve escaped the city without having to actually escape it. (Riverside Drive, a direct shot to downtown, is just up the road.) And as come up the driveway, it becomes clear the designers have tried to make the absolute most of the home’s surroundings.
As soon as you step into the house, you’re greeted with a warm foyer with statement Brazilian walnut doors leading into a large open-concept living room filled with light from skylights in the cathedral ceiling. The living room centres around a beautiful gas fireplace, designed with bold marble stone. Step into the kitchen and you’ll find a cook’s dream — a large Dacor gas range, new Miele appliances, a full-size Sub-Zero fridge and granite countertops. Once dinner’s ready, you have options: the indoor dining room with a view out on the wooded backyard or — in the warmer months — you can step out onto the stone patio. There’s a spa-like ensuite bathroom attached to the primary bedroom located on the main floor, with a large soaking tub and glass-walled steam shower, plus a large walk-in closet with built-ins. A second bedroom on the main floor doubles as a home office as well.
The home’s lower level features a third dedicated bedroom, a family room with another gas fireplace, a games room and bar area, as well as a large home-office with built-in shelving. The basement also has two bathrooms (one with a telephone!) a full home gym area with hot tub), multiple flexible-use spaces and plenty of storage. From the lower level you can access the wooded backyard, with Magnolias and Redbud trees overlooking the river — a perfectly charming setting for a luxurious home.
Big Selling Point
Take your pick: the picturesque setting, the backyard view, the luxurious appointments, the privately maintained cul-de-sac with only eight homes, all just a hop, skip and a jump from downtown.
