Hidden down a private crescent driveway, graced by a canopy of trees and romantic ivy that climbs the limestone exterior, 16 Hedgewood Rd. is unbelievably enchanting.
Situated above the Hoggs Hollow neighbourhood in North York and literally overlooking the Hollow itself, this six-bedroom, nine-bathroom French countryside-inspired estate is listed for $9.195 million.
The elegant foyer certainly sets the stage for the rest of the home and features a decorative wrought iron lightwell and a wood-burning fireplace.
Lending itself to the grandeur of old-world Paris, the great room is fit with ornate cornices, crown moulding details, a fireplace and several double doors that allow the fresh air and sunlight to flow into it.
The dining room features beautiful oak floors and plenty of space for formal dinner gatherings.
The office, which opens onto a Juliet balcony, features a fireplace and fine oak details throughout.
The family room has a cozy fireplace and plenty of natural light, making it a welcoming space for reading and relaxing.
The kitchen, which opens onto the family room and backyard patio, is a place of grand proportions. It offers a generous marble-topped island and high-end appliances with a touch of antique style.
Next to the kitchen, you’ll discover a charming turreted dining area with near-panoramic views of the garden. It’s a pretty spot for mealtimes.
The primary bedroom is a romantic space. It offers oak floors, a double set of walk-in closets, and a private balcony that overlooks the ravine. What’s more, it has an inviting round room ideal for daydreamers.
The ensuite bathroom with marble details doesn’t disappoint. It features a jacuzzi whirlpool tub, several vanities and a rainfall walk-in shower.
The lower level with walkout access to the backyard is a great spot for entertainment. It’s big enough for a personal gym, music room, workshop and den for when you want to kick back with a movie or two. There’s also a sixth bedroom and a bathroom down here.
At the rear of the home, you’ll come upon a picturesque garden that features a fabulous barbecue terrace and a tiered swimming pool where lazing away the afternoon would be a pleasure.
Enveloped by lush trees and curated lawns that gently slope to a quiet ravine, meandering through the backyard expanses will make you feel like you’re in a fairy tale.
