Modern and custom-built, this new two-storey detached residence is nestled on a secluded property in an established Stouffville neighbourhood. It features environmentally-friendly features such as hydronic radiant heated floors, controlled air and water quality, and a high-density, spray-foam insulation.
“This one-of-a-kind masterpiece is situated in amongst the mature trees of the historical section of downtown Stouffville. With virtually no-maintenance landscaping and only a five-minute walk along Main St. to the GO train station, this property is the perfect home for a buyer who works in the city, but at the end of the day, wants to get away from the urban commotion,” says listing agent Leslie Benczik.
“The home was completed in March, 2014. The design was inspired heavily by modern west coast design trends, especially centering on British Columbia (Kelowna) and southern California,” says Benczik. “The homeowner designed the home through his firm, 3Dhaus, which focuses on utilizing three-dimensional printing and three-dimensional renderings to test and express modern design elements in custom-built homes.
“This part of Stouffville has been undergoing substantial regeneration and customization — many of the homes in this mature-treed, scenic area are bought, renovated and expanded or demolished and rebuilt.
The home is walking distance to many stores, shops and restaurants, as well as schools and parks.
Highlights of the house include nine-inch, solid pine baseboards and eight-foot, oversized doors throughout, pot lights, duct-less air conditioning with remotes, 12-foot ceilings throughout, Hunter Douglas blinds with remote controls, and Pella windows with breech and security film.
There is an automated front gate with a numeric lock and remote control. The front porch is Brazilian tigerwood. The home’s exterior is stone and Brazilian hardwood, and combines a modern flare with chalet-type warmth.
Lights under the over-hanging roof illuminate the home at night. A mature tree towers close to the front of the home, and bushes and landscaping grace the driveway’s perimeter.
A custom-built, solid oak oversized entry door, flanked on both sides with wood framing, opens to the foyer.
The foyer boasts a travertine stone floor, a large window, a double closet with built-in organizers, high baseboards and pot lights.
Features of the dining room include a wire-scraped hardwood floor, high baseboards, pot lights, posts and beams and a modern chandelier-type light.
