Spectacular Mountain-Style Ski Chalet at the base of Craigleith Ski Club!
This is a customized Mountain-Style detached chalet home in the Orchard at Craigleith, situated at the base of the Craigleith Ski Club and right beside the Toronto Ski Club. It has an absolutely gorgeous great room with vaulted ceilings & full panoramic ski hill views! Special features include a triple car garage plus an elevator serving 4 different levels (the basement, garage, main floor & the 2nd floor). It has 3,100 finished SQFT finished above ground with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms plus the opportunity to finish the 1,380 SQFT basement.
There are 3 separate entrances at the front, all with their own covered porches. The mudroom entrance is located beside the garage, then the grand entrance in the centre and a separate entrance with another large covered porch on the right, to a room that would function very well as a home office.
Your guests enter through the grand front entrance into the spacious slate floor foyer where you have 2 separate guest closets, one on each side. A few steps up they enter the spectacular great room with the vaulted ceilings, wide plank wood floors & those panoramic ski hill views. This is when you really appreciate that the great room, the main area that you use for spending quality family time and entertaining guests, is located on the 2nd floor. The designer kitchen features granite counters & breakfast island, stainless steel appliances, an office nook with a walk-out to the BBQ area and the kitchen is open to the spacious dining area with a double door walkout to the huge back deck. As you continue on this level past the powder room and the elevator, to the master bedroom suite, you will notice that due to vaulted height of the upper floor, all the interior doors have been made 8 feet high. The master suite features vaulted ceilings, another gas fireplace, a 4 piece ensuite, 2 spacious his & hers walk-in closets, the upstairs laundry room and a walk-out to the back deck.
The ground floor features the family room with those same rustic look wide-plank wood floors, also with another gas fireplace. There is a 3-piece bathroom and 3 more bedrooms (one of them with that separate entrance and a private covered porch). There is that front mudroom entrance with an inside entry from the garage but also a separate rear entrance mud room with a walkout to the lower patio area. The unfinished basement has the second washer/dryer, lots of space for storage and for kids to hangout and play and of course an elevator stop. This home is only one of 3 homes in The Orchard with a triple garage, also featuring ceiling storage racks, a 2nd fridge plus an entrance to the elevator.
All this and walking distance to skiing at Craigleith & the TSC, where your family and guests can also enjoy the free shuttle service to the Craigleith Ski Club during the ski season.
