Welcome to 11 Palisades, located in the charming neighbourhood of Swansea. This stunning three-storey 4+2 bed, 4.5 bath home offers nearly 4,000 sq. ft. of living space and breathtaking, unobstructed views of High Park and the Toronto skyline.
This stately home has been extensively renovated with rich materials and finishes throughout. The main floor of the home has in-floor heating throughout and features wide plank hardwood in all of the principal rooms, as well as many character details such as lead glass windows and crown molding. The centre hall plan offers a welcoming vestibule, open concept living/dining area, a modern & chic farmhouse-style kitchen, and a main floor powder room. There’s also a family room and an eat-in breakfast and a custom bar area, both of which have direct access to the backyard deck and stunning views over High Park.
The living room features a gorgeous wood-burning fireplace, wall sconces, and a beautiful picture window overlooking the professionally landscaped front garden. Enjoy the seamless views to the rear of the home through the sliding glass doors beyond the dining area, which allows for the ease of entertaining indoors and out.
The kitchen is truly a chef’s dream featuring custom shaker-style cabinets with brushed gold pulls, a ceramic farmers’ sink with an apron front, quartz countertops, and a gorgeous white ceramic tile backsplash. Appliances include a 36” Jennair stainless steel 6 burner gas stove & oven, that has an electric integrated panel for wifi and remote access, a 36” wide french door SS BOSCH fridge, a custom KOB exhaust, a Miele SS Dishwasher Futura Crystal, a Frigidaire bar fridge with glass door and a GE microwave 800 watt. The piece de resistance is a stunning 10’ long Island with a bold blue base and seating for 4-6.
On the second-floor landing, you will find a sun-filled room, which makes a perfect office, overlooking the backyard and the natural landscape. As you walk through the custom French doors, you will be struck by the abundance of natural light. Up on the second floor is an oversized bedroom with floor-to-ceiling ‘his’ and ‘her’ double-door closets. A private 4-piece bath completes this space. There are two additional oversized bedrooms and closets on this floor which share a luxury 5 piece bathroom with a custom shower enclosure and freestanding deep soaker tub.
On the third-floor landing, there is a beautiful walkout deck with a glass railing which ensures an unobstructed view at the rear of the property. On the third floor, discover an airy retreat that boasts 3 operable skylights, with custom blackout shades. Windows on every wall allow light from every direction. A feature wall with midnight blue painted barnboard with gold sconces serves as the perfect backdrop for a king-sized bed or as another seating area. A huge walk-in closet, complete with built-ins, allows for ample storage. Tucked behind the barnboard feature wall is another storage space that doubles as a secret hideaway for adventurous minds! A newly renovated custom bathroom, with ‘his’ and ‘her’ showers, double vanity, and another skylight rounds out this floor.
The lower level offers above-grade windows, a separate entrance from the rear, a lovely rec room space, two bedrooms, and a spacious laundry room with a heated floor. The laundry room could easily double as a kitchen! With minimal modifications, this could work as a nanny suite, in-law suite or as a rental unit.
On the exterior of the property is a private driveway and a single garage offering three parking spots. The backyard is completely fenced in, with a mix of grass for the kids to play on, planter boxes, and flower beds. The new rear deck provides a lovely entertaining space for friends and family overlooking the treetops of High Park. At the rear of the house, a hidden walkway takes you to the entrance of High Park and Grenadier Pond, where you can see a deer or two on the way.
Swansea Village is a very desirable area to live in. 11 Palisades has access to great elementary and high schools, including Swansea Public School, St Pius X, and Humberside Collegiate. Nearby Rennie Park, is a firm favorite with everyone, providing access to tennis courts, a skating rink, a wading pool, and a children’s playground. The local community center and library have an abundance of programs for all ages. Bloor St West a few streets north, has many fabulous cafes, boutiques, restaurants, and stores and access to several Subway stops. Being south of Bloor St also provides easy access to the airports and highways for downtown and out of the city, and of course, Lake Ontario is right on your doorstep too.
This home is truly a haven from the city, without having to leave it.
