Impressive Family Residence

On the southern edge of prestigious Forest Hill, along one of Toronto’s premier winding tree lined streets, 261 Russell Hill Road is a gem of a residence for your growing family.  Wonderful  50 x 180 foot fenced-in lot.   The epitome of refinement, elegance and master craftsmanship all the way through the 5,360 square feet of finished living space.


An exceptional level of quality is found throughout thanks to the back-to-the-brick renovation completed under the direction of Andrew Custom Homes in 2010.   Successful Toronto families have turned to Andrew Custom Homes for years to help create master crafted luxurious spaces.


From the graceful light pearly tones of the Crema Pearl marble to the warm hardwood flooring and from the rich granite and marble countertops to the custom cabinetry by Florentine.  Luxury abounds everywhere.


Florentine Kitchens was selected as the purveyor of the cabinetry in the kitchen, laundry, and upper baths.  Florentine individually handmade the cabinetry in their Toronto workshop by highly experienced craftsman.  Details are everything:   silky paint finished fronts, dove tail finished boxes, and soft closures.


Speaking of the kitchen, cooks, caterers and chefs will love working in this massive space.  Flooded with natural sunlight from the breakfast area.  Ample counter space to prepare scrumptious meals for family and friends.   Top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances.  Note the laser cut elegant tile behind the stove that mirrors the appearance of fabric - elegance is everywhere.


The flow makes for ease of entertaining.  Grandly proportioned principal rooms; walk-out from the dining room to the back garden and outdoor interlocking brick dining patio.  Two wood burning fireplaces.   Hand crafted plaster mouldings throughout the public spaces.


Upstairs, you will discover sheer luxury in the sumptuous spa-like baths.  The 6 piece master ensuite bathroom will delay getting ready in the morning... you won't want to leave this space.   Crema Marfil tile flooring, his and her under-mounted sinks in the elongated vanity, separate shower, and relaxing air jet tub.  Flooded with sunlight.  In total, the residence features a total of 4.5 bathrooms.


Every growing family needs ample bedroom space (in total:  6 up and 2 down), expansive home work zones, and private home office areas.   261 Russell Hill Road offers this in abundance.


The third floor is a dream for guests and older children.  Completely self contained with its own kitchen, 2 bedrooms, and bath.   It can also be accessible by the side door for complete privacy.   Or simply open the door on the second floor for ease of communication with the rest of the home.


The lower level has been beautifully finished with additional rooms and can be used as an in-law suite or nanny suite.


When world class private schools are top of mind, Upper Canada College and Bishop Strachan are just minutes away.  University of Toronto is an easy drive away.   Shops, restaurants, and cafes in the enchanting Forest Hill village.  The incredible new concept Loblaws supermarket at St. Clair and Bathurst; the lovely new Longo's and LCBO at St. Clair and Avenue Road.  Streetcar and subway stations within easy reach.  Everything is close at hand.


Along the private driveway, you can easily park 3 cars.  Then open the garage door to discover a wonderful surprise - an extraordinarily long tandem garage.  Car lovers can park their sports car or convertible at the back, when not in use.  The future owners may choose to recapture the back of the garage and convert it into an art studio, garden cutting snug, or workshop.  With a large aperture overlooking the back garden, only your contractor's creativity and imagination are the limit.


State-of-the-art mechanical systems.  Energy efficiency was top of mind when the house was renovated.   Thermopane windows.  High efficiency furnaces.  This ensures comfort and enjoyment for years to come.


Enjoy complete peace of mind.  This magnificent renovation seamlessly married the charm of the historic past with today's modern elements you have come to expect.  Simply move in and unpack!
