Wonderfully Designed Custom Home in Guelph
If you have a busy growing family with kids and maybe a nanny or parents that need to move in, then this custom home in Guelph is the place for you. With an excellent walk score, this home is within walking distance of Catholic and public elementary and high schools, as well as daycares. Enjoy the view of Bullfrog Park or walk to George’s Park and Riverside Park. Medical services and shopping including grocery stores are nearby.
This house was custom designed by a prominent local physician in 1986. Furthermore, it was completely updated and renovated from top to bottom inside and out during the past 5 years.
This residence is true quality, all brick outside and all plaster in. It’s a big home, over 5000 sq ft living space with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms upstairs as well as upstairs laundry. The main floor includes a private office, formal living room and dining room.
There is also a huge eat-in kitchen over-looking a cozy family room. There are two separate staircases down to a walkout level in-law suite with its own washroom and laundry. The basement also features a fitness room and a large unfinished workshop and storage areas with their own walkout level entrance. The hi-light of this house is the indoor hot tub. In addition, the flooring throughout the home is hardwood and heated ceramic tile. The attached double garage is larger than average and opens to a patterned concrete driveway – there’s parking for 5 vehicles. Additionally, the backyard feels like an outdoor oasis with resort-like amenities.
As you enter the grand foyer, you are greeted by a soaring cathedral ceiling as well as an impressive flared wooden staircase. Separate formal living and dining rooms are great for entertaining. No detail was missed in the design of the kitchen – it’s huge with an area for the kid’s kitchen where they can make their own lunches and snacks complete with a fridge and microwave. Additionally, the main cooking area features a second fridge, gas stove, microwave and dishwasher. There’s also a reverse osmosis water to the pot filler above the stove and an auto-hot water tap – no waiting for the kettle to boil. From the kitchen, there’s access to the upper deck and a gas BBQ.
The main floor also features a bright office overlooking the front yard. As well, there’s a large mudroom and powder room.
In addition, two separate staircases lead down to the fully finished basement which has a separate entrance from the backyard. It includes a wet bar including a microwave, fridge and dishwasher. It also has its own laundry and washroom with a walk-in level shower and change room.
You’ll feel no need for a cottage when you see this backyard oasis – you’ll feel like you’re in your own personal resort with its in-ground, heated salt-water pool and backyard living room complete with TV. Just imagine watching your favourite team on TV while cooking on the barbie as the kids play in the pool – sliding down the slide or jumping from the diving board. If you’re an adventurous type – there’s a part of the lawn designed specifically for a trampoline. Furthermore, there are lots of sunny areas to lounge and shady areas to cool surrounded by evergreen gardens and trees. Also, the impressive two-level deck provides lots of space for outdoor entertainment. Finally, the lower level deck leads you to another oasis – the indoor hot tub with its own TV so you never miss a play no matter where you are.
Why leave this place at all – well the current owners are down-sizing- but they’ll take with them the many wonderful memories they made raising their family here and know that 15 Walnut drive will become a truly special home for another family.
