A Majestic Home in the Heart of Rosedale

This stately Edwardian home on North Rosedale’s favoured ‘Binscarth Road’ is an elegant family home fit for large or growing families with a flair for grand entertaining.  

Upon entry, the dignified foyer with wood burning fireplace and restored wooden panelling pays homage to the significant history of this home.  Tall ceilings carry through the main floor’s tremendous entertaining spaces with superb scale and flow, while plaster crown mouldings and bevelled glass detailing enhance subtle elegance to these spaces.  A rich history abounds.   

The kitchen was renovated and expanded by the current owners in the late 1990’s to include a lovely breakfast room and a wall of glass that connects the interiors to the private deck setting and English gardens beyond. Views from the kitchen into the main floor family room create an ease of interactions for these informal spaces where everyday life is lived.  The family room is wrapped in natural light from both the easterly and westerly exposures and is equipped with a handsome wet bar as well as the third wood-burning fireplace on this level.  

A wood panelled staircase leads to the expansive second floor landing which branches to the four bedrooms on this level.  The primary bedroom is truly a retreat of elegant proportions, with a dressing room, a four piece ensuite, and an expansive bedroom that is set amongst the trees.  It offers a wall of built-in storage, a wood-burning fireplace, and a Juliette balcony as well.

The three additional bedrooms on this floor are very generous in scale and share use of a large four-piece bathroom.  A sun-filled office space is connected to the two front bedrooms, and offers a delightful perch above Binscarth Road, facing south over the mature trees and landscape of neighbouring properties.

The third floor is an excellent teenager or guest retreat with two large bedrooms (both with walk-in closets) and a four-piece bathroom.  Skylights have been added to this floor, and the north and south vistas ensure it is filled with natural light throughout.

The lower level is surprising in its size as well, offering a large recreation room with a wet bar and gas fireplace as well as a separate nanny or in-law suite with a bedroom and separate living room.  There is a three-piece bathroom that services this level, as well as a large walk-in laundry room and storage room.  

The grounds of the property are beautiful and have been carefully maintained by the current owners for thirty-eight years.  The wide mutual driveway leads to a two-car garage and parking for two additional cars can be had in front of the garage. An English garden lies behind the fence and is extremely private and easy to maintain.  Should a future owner require more garden space and less parking, the option is obvious to reduce the two-car garage to a single garage, and to incorporate the revised space into a larger back yard setting.

48 Binscarth Road is an impressive and embracing family home that is much larger that it appears from street-level.  It is set on perhaps the most coveted block of North Rosedale and amongst a lovely enclave of delightful residents.  It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that is truly not to be missed.
