TImeless Woodland Acres Estate
Welcome to Woodland Acres, one of North Toronto’s most coveted communities renowned for its elegant, noteworthy estates. This sprawling 13,000 sq. ft. of total luxury living space estate, affectionately referred to as Rebecca, is tucked into the center of this refined neighbourhood and enjoys over 1 acre of manicured gardens and lush trees.
Conceived by Architect, Frank Falcone, Rebecca’s classic exterior celebrates the use of time-honoured materials such as Indiana limestone, natural slate roofing, natural stone, granite and copper detailing. The interior is a sun-filled voluminous space with wide corridors, cathedral ceilings and large principal rooms. Interior Designer, Robin Nadel compliments this home’s classic lines by featuring a transitional aesthetic rooted in a sophisticated and elegant palette designed to withstand changing trends. Extensive cabinetry, trim work, millwork, plaster detailing, natural stones, wall panelling, wide plank flooring, inlay detailing, and an outstanding lighting schematic sets the backdrop for this truly beautiful residence. Every square inch was constructed with the greatest attention to detail and with exceptional craftsmanship.
Rebecca boasts an unparalleled pride of ownership, and it shows. Completed in 2016 the construction spared no expense. Geothermal heating/cooling throughout, precast concrete floor slabs, radiant hot water floor heating, elevator, foundation walls with cast-in-place concrete, Ridley windows, 400-amp electrical service, Control 4 home automation system, state of the art security system and more. The grand foyer sets the tone of opulence and elegance of the home and is flanked by the formal dining and living room. These principal rooms are finely crafted with high ceilings, luxurious wallpaper and large windows overlooking the front grounds. Walnut hardwood flooring and Statuario marble carry you throughout the main level.
The great room is warm and inviting, as its scale is balanced by the tones of the walnut cabinetry and cathedral ceiling.
Designed by Bellini Kitchens, the full functioning gourmet kitchen is an entertainer’s dream. With an oversized island, marble counters, custom cabinetry, and integrated appliances - what better space for a chef to create culinary masterpieces. The natural sunlight fills the morning room where you can enjoy the views of the backyard terrace with floor-to-ceiling windows.
Tucked away down the hall, the library awaits you. Upon entry, you will be greeted by dark walnut bookshelves with a soaring coffered ceiling and panelled walls. The calming space will be the perfect place to unwind and recharge after a long day.
The primary bedroom is located on the main floor for convenience and stuns with sophistication. The room is fully outfitted with three dressing rooms, an elegant ensuite with a large soaking tub featuring a laser cut marble wall, a walk-in shower, dual vanities, and a separate water closet.
Upstairs you will find the additional bedrooms are finely styled with ensuite privileges, and walk-in dressing rooms.
On the lower level, you will find all the amenities one needs. The wine cellar leaves little to the imagination for a wine connoisseur looking to store over 500 bottles of wine in the Mahogany wood cellar. The gathering lounge allows for large entertaining that blends into the party kitchen and leads to the rear grounds. Down the hall, the exercise room is bright and spacious with mirrored walls and vinyl flooring. Across the hall you will find the theatre, with wall-to-wall broadloom and seats 11 people, perfect for any movie night.
Last but certainly not least are the grounds at Rebecca. Simply put, you will fall in love. If spending time outside is of value to you then you’ll appreciate the amount of effort and resources that has gone into creating this oasis. Entertain friends on the numerous patios and terraces. Enjoy al fresco dining by the wood-burning fireplace with seating for 12 under the pergola style roofing. The outdoor pizza oven, BBQ and kitchen will make food prep a cinch. Saunter down the low-slung stone steps to the hot tub and 18’ x 38’ saltwater mosaic tiled pool with its several lounge areas and pergola seating for those who prefer shade. With extensive lighting and audio, you can entertain well into the evening and enjoy the numerous gardens and gathering areas to be found. The grounds are truly the heart of Rebecca designed to be enjoyed by all those who are welcome.
