Enter this private and exclusive 10-acre estate, past the front stone walls with wrought iron entry gates, and you will be in complete awe. This property is truly one-of-a-kind for many reasons, not the least of which is the exceptional proximity to highways, the international airport, and downtown Toronto. How can you be so close to Toronto, but have 10 acres of Shangri-La paradise? As you approach the absolutely spectacular 18,000-square-foot French-influenced manor home, you might be greeted by deer or rabbits quietly meandering on the lawns. During the design phase of the site, the home was positioned perfectly to take advantage of the breathtaking views perched high above the Credit Valley Golf and Country Club and the Credit River. The setting is irreplaceable and so accessible to the city. Scoot down your path in your own personal golf cart. Play a full round or maybe just a few practice holes after dinner on a beautiful summer evening. Perhaps it is just you, nature, and the championship golf course enjoying leisure time together. Few golfers in Canada could boast of such a unique privilege. The flat tableland area of the property sits 70 feet above the beautiful Credit River; you can fish, canoe or kayak or perhaps even picnic at the water’s edge. In the winter months, the snow-covered picture-perfect postcard setting becomes a retreat to snowshoe, cross-country ski, and enjoy nature. The location of the outdoor pool gives one the sense of being pampered at a private lodge. Your very own luxury resort setting. A ten-acre private sanctuary without any commute. This prestigious home is both warm and spacious. How ever did the designers manage to make 18,000 square feet of finished space feel so cozy? The six marvelous gas fireplaces and the beautiful hardwood floors play a large part. Classical architectural elements. The use of natural stone on the exterior. Windows that bring the outdoors in. Combined, it is very much a home. Quality precision engineering and construction are apparent at every turn. The four-storey building, including the walk-up basement, has radiant floor heat on each level. The heating tubes are cleverly integrated in a level of concrete under the hardwood or marble on every floor. The sound reduction is remarkable. You may never want to leave the primary bedroom suite, with a fireplace, his and hers walk-in closets, a six-piece bath plus a separate powder room, and a walk-out to a terrace overlooking the pool, ravine, golf course and river. The second-floor multi-zoned gym, with its vaulted ceiling, comfortably fits 10 pieces of professional fitness equipment with extra spaces for yoga or indoor golf. This space is so sensational and privately tucked away that you may find family members fighting over it. The third floor of the home provides additional bedroom space for guests, plus a recreation area and walk-out to a massive terrace and outdoor fireplace where the views are unparalleled. And the spacious elevator conveniently services all four floors. Car collectors rejoice. Seven car parking in three distinctive garages. Attached directly to the house is a double car heated garage. Across the porte-cochere is the second double car garage. Here is what is so special: the third 3-car garage is separate from the house and has a spectacular but unfinished Muskoka-type room with wonderful views and yet another terrace looking down on the river. How would you envision the future space? As your private home office, an artist’s loft studio, or as another recreation space? Did we mention it was a 30-second commute from the house. Top tier schools are paramount. The residence is within walking distance to the highly reputed Holy Name of Mary College. An easy drive to some of Canada's most prestigious private schools, including Appleby College, Mentor College, and Toronto French School (west campus). For advanced education, only four kilometers to the University of Toronto (Mississauga Campus). Doulton Estates is known as one of the most prestigious areas in the Greater Toronto Area, offering a selection of luxurious custom-built homes. The area is surrounded by mature trees, two golf courses, ravine and the Credit River. Entertain business associates, family and friends on one of Canada’s most incredible trophy properties. They may wish to stay for a long while. So will you.
