When a home is featured in at least three different publications, you know it is special! This Prairie style home (an architectural style developed in America), while common in the Ruxton area, has wonderfully unique characteristics. As you walk through this home and its garden, you will feel as if you have been transported to a cottage in an English countryside. The charming details are endless. Walking up the stone pathway, you arrive to the Prairie box porch – a deep entrance that is perfect for morning coffee or afternoon tea. When you enter this home, your eye is immediately drawn to the over-sized stone fireplace. The beautiful hardwood floors, detailed crown molding and leaded casement windows are captivating. Perfectly designed by the current owners, an addition was added that allows for a primary suite that is offset by a library and a sitting area. Incorporating original interior doors and relocating a stunning window, shows the attention and mindfulness of the owners. Two bedrooms and another sitting room perfectly offset another wing of the home. The piece de resistance – the most gorgeous family room with gleaming hardwood floors and walls of windows that allow for perfect natural light. Descend to the lower level and you feel as if you have walked into a time where life is simple and good; the allure is palpable. The eat-in kitchen is the center point. Flanked on one side is a dining room with exposed beams, casement windows and a perfectly designed built-in cabinet. The addition of the recreation room off the kitchen is a masterpiece. Keeping the exterior stone wall adds distinctive character and is enhanced by the gorgeous hardwood floors and natural light from the alcove of windows. Doors open to both the back deck and the front patio. Finishing off the lower level is a large storage area that can be divided into sections for multi-purposes. Should you want to leave all the charm of being inside, you will be enthralled with the outside options. A magnificent deck and large covered porch can entertain a party of all sizes and offers views of lush green plantings. But if you’re looking for a sense of peace and tranquility, walk through the garden and discover the quiet as you amble the stone steps or relax on the brick patio. And an added touch – a detached garage with a second floor storage room. An uncommon and coveted find in Ruxton! This home is beyond extraordinary. If you appreciate unique qualities, story-book charm and an atmosphere of serenity, this is your perfect home.
