Sprawling Valleyview home offers modern living near nature trails

For people craving glitz and glam, this custom home fits the bill. Only one block to the River Valley access trails in prestigious Valleyview, this sprawling 3,589-square-foot home will appeal to those who want to reconnect with nature while still being close to local restaurants, shops and services.

The exterior of this modern structure is accented by wood and tile, and complemented by a multi-level walkway. Black, Italian linear windows create visual interest while allowing ample natural light to enter the home. The view from the street is undeniably impressive.

A grand 2-storey entrance leads to a showstopper of an open-concept living room with a floor-to-ceiling fireplace feature wall. Clerestory windows allow scores of natural light in a room finished with wood details. A custom room divider creates separation from the dining space without losing any daylight. A deluxe kitchen, fit for any home (or professional) chef, adjoins the dining area. The space features exquisite quartz countertops, a massive island, high-end appliances, and a convenient butler’s pantry. The dining area, complete with well-placed direct and ambient lighting, and spacious enough to hold large dinner parties, is flanked by a double-sided fireplace that leads to an expansive sunroom at the back of the property. 

This home offers a main floor bedroom with a serene, seascape hue-inspired ensuite, ideal for guests, multi-generational living, or those who require aging-in-place arrangements. Another bedroom with an ensuite is on the second floor, along with the ultra-luxurious owner’s chamber, complete with a built-in bed, a tiled fireplace, and lighting that rivals an exquisite hotel suite. The expansive ensuite includes a walk-in closet with laundry, a generous vanity space, and a double occupancy shower.

The lower level is all about entertaining with a wine room, a built-in bar, and space for a big screen (or four!). Another two bedrooms with private ensuites are on this level, as well.

In addition to the residence, the three-car garage, and exterior entertaining spaces, there is also a fully permitted garden suite on the property that offers a comfortable and private space for guests or income-generating renters. 

A state-of-the-art heating and mechanical system will keep the new owners warm on those cold winter nights, and cool throughout the summer. No expense was spared when crafting this 2020 custom-built home, a reality that is immediately evident upon pulling open the double doors at 8908 – 140 Street.
