Tranquil beauty is the vibe of this four-bedroom Victorian home, built in 1885, where subtle but striking details inside seem to mimic the peaceful atmosphere outside Alta Plaza Park, just across the street from the street.
Filled with light with tall doors, gracious alcoves and plenty of built-in units to display lovely items, the home is elegant with contemporary finishes and playful pops of color while maintaining a timeless appeal.
The classic Victorian design opens into a narrow hall with a double sitting room to the left. The living room is small but quaint with square bay windows and a brick fireplace, made chic with shiny blue paint. Through and archway, the adjacent dining room has a wall of floor-to-ceiling shelving and a pair of French doors that open to a covered atrium.
The eat-in kitchen is suitable for fun get-togethers with friends and family thanks to mauve painted cabinets, butcher block countertops and a cherry red Bertazzoni range. Just behind the kitchen is a bedroom (or office) with a shower room and access to the atrium, rear terrace and garden.
At the top of the stairs, admire the stained glass skylight before entering the private quarters. At the front of the house, the master suite is tranquil and elegant with a carved niche for the bed, a fireplace with a marble mantle, an ensuite bathroom and a view of the park. Two additional bedrooms complete this floor, which share access to a full bathroom in the hall.
The lower level houses a laundry room as well as a bonus room with a full bathroom. There is also garage access for one car and additional parking in the driveway.
