Extraordinary Luxury & Design
Custom finishing, elegant features, and fine design culminate in this luxurious executive home at 71 Highland Drive. This stunning walkout bungalow boasts the highest standards in decor and detail, nestled on a private landscaped property in the heart of Horseshoe Valley.
The craftsmanship is apparent as you approach the home. The stucco is immaculate. The oversized double attached side entry garage is designed for greater curb appeal. The large stone driveway provides ample parking room, and a stone walkway lined by gorgeous perennial beds leads to the front door.
The foyer is light and bright with opulent marble floors and a semi-barrel vault ceiling with hand copper leaf faux finish. The crown moulding features indirect lighting as do two art niches. An elliptical archway flanked by two columns frames the spacious great room, an elegant space with 9’ ceilings, crown moulding, and a wall of windows that offers a lovely vista of the private treed back yard. Gleaming oak hardwood runs throughout the room which is anchored by a large gas fireplace with marble surround and traditional white mantle.
The great room is open to the dining room with another balanced archway and columns adding to the formality of that space. More large windows flood the room with natural light and crown mouldings accent the same oak hardwood floors.
The incredible custom kitchen by Norcab is an exercise in style and functionality. The entire room is finished with oak hardwood laid in a diagonal pattern. The cabinetry encompasses built-in stainless steel appliances, a pantry with pullout shelves, pot and pan drawers, a pullout spice rack, and a high quality built-in range hood. The lustrous granite counters are nicely accented by the tumbled marble backsplash. The large centre island houses extra storage, an upgraded stainless steel double sink and dishwasher. The breakfast room is light and bright, enveloped by a semi-hexagon window wall. The tray ceiling with decorative detail adds extra height to the room, and a garden door walkout leads to the covered back deck. The kitchen also incorporates a built-in desk and serving counter with granite top in the eating area. Also just off the kitchen is a butler’s pantry equipped with a wine fridge, overhead cabinets, and granite counter top.
The main floor master suite is a tranquil retreat with hardwood floors, tray ceiling, and large bright windows. This room also features a walkout to the deck, perfect for enjoying a morning coffee or evening drink. The spa-like 6-piece master ensuite is a sumptuous getaway with marble floors and marble counters on the dual separate vanities. Relax at the end of the day in the soothing corner Neptune jet tub or separate shower with glass and tile surround. The master ensuite also includes a large walk-in closet with lots of built-in storage.
There are two more bedrooms on the main floor, including one used as a home office. Both are generous in size with hardwood floors, crown moulding, and large bright windows. They share a lovely four piece Jack and Jill bath with great decor, marble floors and a tub/shower combination with marble surround.
The main floor is nicely finished off with an elegant oversize two piece powder room with marble floors, mural walls, and upgraded fixtures as well as a large laundry room with direct access to the attached garage.
The walkout lower level of the home features more fantastic finished living space with the same high quality finishings as the main floor. Upgraded cork flooring covers all the finished rooms on this level. The inviting family room is spacious and incredibly bright with large windows and a walkout to another covered deck. The room is warmed by a double sided gas fireplace and the entire room is wired for surround sound, ready for your home theatre.
Adjacent to the family room is a lavish guest suite. This delightful room features the other side of the double fireplace and includes a bright sitting area surrounded by windows with a gorgeous vista of the back yard. Also on the lower level is another large sunny bedroom with plenty of windows that could also double as an office, a four piece bath with marble floor and marble surround, an exercise room, and a seasonal walk-in closet with wiring for a future sauna.
Outside is a natural paradise in one of Horseshoe Valley’s most prestigious neighbourhoods. The extensive landscaping and lawn is maintained by a sprinkler system with booster pump. There are lots of trees in the back yard, providing a natural buffer and lots of privacy. Outdoor entertaining is a breeze with both an elevated covered deck with glass railing, and covered lower deck on the walkout lower level.
71 Highland Drive is an example of fine workmanship and style with incredible attention to detail. It is just minutes away from four season recreation at Horseshoe Resort, and an abundance of golf courses, green space, and trails. It’s a stunning home perfect for those looking for luxury in one of Simcoe County’s most sought after neighbourhoods.
