$4,298,000 for a sprawling, seven-acre executive estate in the city’s west end
Address: 3944 Southwinds Drive
Agent: Re/Max Hallmark A Team
An executive estate situated on a seven-acre property on one of the city’s most exclusive streets.
Shake out the couch cushions and take the hammer to the piggy bank, because this week’s featured listing is a huge, über-exclusive ranch-style estate in Sharon Creek, with five bedrooms and six bathrooms, seven acres of property and 7,000 square feet of living space spread across two levels.
Architecturally, this home will appeal to fans of the classic ranch-style home. While some of the design details might ring as a bit dated, many of the home’s foundational features ― like its recessed ceiling, sprawling layout, the multi-level brick hearth or the spa-like cedar hot tub and sauna ― are highly valued for their vintage qualities.
Entering the home, you land in the foyer, which leads off in all directions: the formal dining room on one side, the parlour room on the other and the central living space straight ahead through the hardwood French doors. The main area is designed as an open-concept space revolving around the wood-burning fireplace and filled with natural light from the many windows along the back of the house. The eat-in kitchen features a double oven, a built-in range and classic wood cabinetry. In the west wing of the house you’ll find the main sleeping quarters ― three large bedrooms, each with a walk-in closet. The primary suite includes a five-piece ensuite and over 300 square feet of space, all on its own.
Downstairs ― a level that, if you so choose, can be accessed via an elevator (though you’ll have to put that in yourself; it’s only been roughed in) ― you’ll find more expansive living area and a second wood-burning fireplace surrounded by a brick hearth. From there, you can also walk out into the backyard, and the layout allows for plenty of natural light, even on the lower level. There’s also a second full kitchen, a billiard room and a wet bar. Two more bedrooms on this level as well, both with walk-in closets and one of which has a roughed-in ensuite connection. And then there’s the spa: a jacuzzi tub and full cedar sauna, as well as a half-bath, decked out in warm wood walls.
Out in the backyard, the perks of this property start really adding up: a lush forest in your own backyard; a pond; a creek; and get this ― a private orchard, all in one of the region’s most exclusive neighbourhoods.
Big Selling Point
An executive-style house that will appeal to buyers with an executive-style budget. Originally two lots, there is opportunity to sever and develop some of the space ― or enjoy unparalleled privacy in your own private oasis.
