1215 Mt. Paren Road

Words that come to mind as you explore 1215 Mount Paran Road are elegant, glamorous, sophisticated and magnificent.  The home invokes a feeling of old Hollywood.  The estate is absolutely stunning and certainly pure luxury, but it is not overstated or showy.  It is simply dazzling.

The Georgian home is quietly chic from the outside with well-manicured lawn and hedges. The sumptuous green lawn provides a delightful contrast to the light exterior showing off the classic architecture.

Once inside, the curved wrought-iron railed staircase catches your eye in the double story foyer.  A staircase to the lower level curves in the opposite direction from the foyer, while a baby grand sits tucked into where the staircases meet in the custom painted space.

Kitchen

The gourmet kitchen created by Design Galleria is appointed for the finest chef.  Two islands, one with an Afromesia wood top, sit between walls of antiqued Downsview cabinetry.  A professional quality cooktop with custom stainless, limestone hood and limestone and steel backsplash sits at the far end.  Stainless steel double ovens flank the desk area on the right-hand side of the room.  Flanking the kitchen are the large eat in area and the large open family room with a beamed ceiling and fireplace that overlook the formal gardens, pool and covered patio areas.

Living Room

The gardens and the outdoor spaces are awe inspiring.  You feel like you are walking through European gardens.  The back of the home features a covered patio with arches and columns, flanked by open patios on each side, creating the perfect entertaining space.  The  pool, with a hot tub at one end, has small fountain elements along the sides, and the deck is comprised of limestone pavers surrounded by grass to give an elegant natural setting.

Featured Home: Inman Park Charmer (Carson Matthews)

August 10, 2010
807 Lake Avenue

807 Lake Avenue

A three bedroom bungalow in Inman Park, could you ask for anything more?  Maybe a renovated three bedroom bungalow with garage and off-street parking?  Well here it is at 807 Lake Avenue!

Loving this neighborhood is easy, finding the perfect home may have been harder, but this most certainly is it.  Originally built in 1920, renovations have added conveniences and more charm.  An addition of a master bedroom and upscale bath give even more serenity to a home that will bring endless joy.

Living Room

Living Room

Welcomed by a front porch swing, step inside to a spacious living room with corner fireplace.  Crisp white trim and natural light give a cheerful demeanor to the home.  Go throw a large cased opening into the dining room and you see into the kitchen via an opening in the back wall with bar seating.  A corner fireplace backs up to the one in the front room and you are happy the current owners did not remove the character during renovation.

Kitchen

Kitchen

The kitchen is absolutely beautiful!  Wood countertops and white cabinetry immediately catch your eye.  Between the stainless steel refrigerator and gas stove there is spectacular storage in glass front stacking drawers.  What a great design element to the space.  The opposite wall of upper cabinets has paned glass front doors adding balance to the space.  A farmhouse sink will make you smile as you think about preparing your first meal here!

Patio

Patio

The back den leads to outdoor living.  A wood deck is home to a grilling and dining area while brick pavers set the stage for an outdoor family room, allowing plenty of room for family and friends and still plenty of space for children to play.  The driveway is gated allowing for extra privacy.

Wake up on Saturday morning and walk to your favorite breakfast or coffee place, then come back home and enjoy your Saturday in your new home that you will undoubtedly treasure and enjoy for years to come.
