Welcome to 258 Yonge Boulevard. A home that must absolutely be seen in the flesh, this family residence is incredibly special and offers far more than what meets the eye. Possessing every element that a large or growing family could want with extraordinary scale, a perfectly balanced and functional floor plan, and an intrinsic warmth and sophistication that you will be proud to host family and friends within.
The main floor is welcoming from the onset. A foyer addition was added by the current owners and provides an inviting and generous space to welcome you home. The floor plan is balanced with a centre hall design, and branches to the incredibly spacious living and dining rooms which are both perfectly appointed and with the capability of hosting large family gatherings.
The sunny kitchen has a pretty tandem breakfast area that is surrounded by windows that overlook the rear garden. A walk-out from this breakfast room exits directly onto the new deck with glass railings and the no-maintenance, completely private backyard setting.
The wall between the kitchen and family room is not believed to be load-bearing, so a more open connection is possible in the future. At present, the connection is easily made through a large opening from the kitchen which then showcases the delightful setting with a gas fireplace and built-in shelving.
A side mudroom is conveniently tucked just off the family room, with a powder room and hooks for storage, as well as a direct access point to the built-in garage.
The outstanding second floor holds five (yes five) large bedrooms and a masterfully designed ‘kid’s wing’ that has a separate homework or media room. The space was designed to enable kids to do homework at the built-in desk, or an open space for kids to play, but has also served as a separate television space with a couch facing the built-in closets where a cavity for a television lies.
The delightful primary bedroom suite is a relaxing retreat at the end of a long day. All windows offer views of the quiet rear garden, and the space holds multiple closet systems as well as access to a four-piece ensuite.
If you’re big on storage, then this is your house. Explore the abundance of closets and storage systems built into the lower level. A recreation space has in the past been used as a separate guest suite as it offers a three-piece ensuite and large walk-in closet. There is also a custom workspace with pocket doors and built-in desks for a quiet, home office setting.
The gardens surrounding the home are pristine. The front gardens welcome you with mature tulip and magnolia trees, and the rear gardens are designed for little maintenance to be required. The deck has recently been replaced, and a gorgeous centre patio setting for outdoor dining will be the envy of all your guests.
258 Yonge Boulevard offers so much more than what meets the eye. Deceivingly large, impeccably maintained, and lovingly cherished, it is an easy home to fall in love with and is not to be missed.
