Address: 431 Wortley Road
Neighbourhood: Old South
Agent: Re/Max Hallmark A Team
A stately, well-designed four-bedroom home in Old South with character to spare.
From the time you first lay eyes on it, this house delivers loads of appeal ― a pastorally green front lawn, bisected by a meandering walkway and leading to a cottage-like front stoop, the entrance draws you in with its idyllic, old-world charm.
But once inside, the home’s historical character quickly melds with modern, refined design touches. There’s rich hardwood flooring throughout the main floor with in-floor heating in the kitchen, dining and family rooms, and warm details like the oak banister running up the main stairs and tray ceiling in the kitchen area. An elegant front living room features a gas fireplace and loads of natural light. It’s connected to the formal dining room, which features built-in shelving and which also connects to the rear living room area, with ample seating and more windows. The kitchen itself features a large limestone island with a sizeable double farmhouse sink, tile backsplash, ample cabinet space and high-end appliances (including a large gas range and built-in fridge unit).
There are three generous bedrooms on the upper level, as well as a shared four-piece bathroom with exposed brick, a marble-surrounded bathtub lit by a well-placed skylight window, in-floor heating and a walk-in shower. Attached to the primary bedroom is an ensuite with a large walk-in shower (with a tile bench) and in-ceiling speakers, as well as a walk-in closet with a built-in shoe rack.
The basement has been finished to include yet more family room living area, with space enough for a games room, home theatre and small home office, as well as a flex room that could be used as a fourth bedroom and a small home gym area with a large TV cutout. There’s also a large athletics closet, laundry facilities and a full three-piece bathroom in the basement.
The backyard is your private oasis, with beautiful, low-maintenance landscaping and multiple zones for hosting friends and family, including a covered back patio with an installed fan that’s the perfect gathering place on warm summer days.
