Welcome to your 6 bedroom, 4.1 bathroom dream home on a quiet tree-lined street in sought after Hyde Park! The grand curb appeal is the first thing you'll notice before entering and being greeted by real wood floors and a generous formal living room/dining room. The kitchen is fit for a chef with an oversized island, quartz countertops, Viking appliances, two toned cabinetry and open to the family room where you can walk out to your private deck. Heading downstairs you'll find a wet bar, living space, bedroom, bathroom and a private theater ready to host movie nights or to watch your favorite sporting events! On the second floor you'll find the first of 2 primary suites plus 2 additional bedrooms with a Jack and Jill bathroom. The second floor primary suite has a lavish ensuite bathroom with real stone, double sinks, water closet, an oversized walk in shower with body sprayers and a tub inside! The largest primary suite is a STUNNER that expands the entire 3rd floor and has amazing ceiling details. In addition to a king sized bed it includes a wet bar, a private living room plus a home office. The huge bathroom boasts real marble, a generously sized walk in shower with separate tub, double sinks and a water closet. The customs built walk-in closet is a closet for even the most discerning fashionista complete with room for an island, chairs or ottoman. All of the bathrooms feature heated floors to keep you super cozy in the winter!
