59 Wood Sage Crescent – A modern double storey home “with the works”!

Luxury! If that’s what you’re looking for, you’ll find it in this house. The main level consists of the entrance hall, the living room, formal dining area, and kitchen. The colours used by the decorator are “white on white” with maple, gray and black accents. The entry hall has a gorgeous floor of linen ceramic tile. The rest of the main level has lovely bleached maple hardwood flooring. Several walls have been given a “patina” of bleached cement. This, in particular, accents the fireplace which is black and the dark maple cupboards of the kitchen. There is a deck off the kitchen which overlooks the lake at the back of the house. The dining room acts as a bridge between the living room and kitchen and has a balcony which overlooks the lower level recreation area. Windows run from that lower level all the way up to the ceiling of the main level. This allows plentiful light to illuminate all living areas of this house.

When you’re ready to head upstairs, you’ll notice the wine/liquor storage area behind double glass doors at the base of the stairs up. Honestly, with all the light streaming in from the windows and glass doors, you’d need to refrigerate that area in some way. If you can afford this house, however, you can afford to do that.

On the second level of this home, there is a bonus room above the double part of the three car garage and a deck over the single part of the garage. Although the bonus room is approximately 20’ by 20’, you lose a little of its usable space since it has a slanted ceiling It would probably make a great playroom or hobby room.

Climb three more stairs to get to the bedroom level. The master bedroom is large and overlooks the lake. Its walk-in closet has built in dark maple organizers. There is rack to hang regular length dresses and another to hang full length ones. There is also a row above row for shirts, pants, etc. The master bath has two sinks and a desk vanity for putting on make-up. There is a walk in shower complete with rain head and side jets. The large soaker tub also has whirlpool jets. The two other bedrooms share a large bathroom with a tub surround bath/shower.

The lower level of this house is a walk-out to the lake level. It is basically divided into two areas by a fireplace wall which opens into both areas. The decorators placed a pool table comfortably into one area (you could have fit two!) and used the central area (below dining room) as a lounging/entertainment area. It is from this lounging area that you have access to outside. Although the back yard has been sodded, the patio area has not yet been finished. Against the opposite wall, there is a wet bar and the decorator has shown by example that there is room for one (or more) tables and bar stools at this end of the room.

There is a large bedroom downstairs and also a full bath. The storage/utility area is quite large and they have set up wiring for a sound system which does (and could continue to) run a sound system around the house.

Did I mention the three car garage? It is actually oversized. The single stall could easily fit a large van. The double stall has a lot of room at the front and sides. I literally drooled at all the space. I imagined my station wagon, bike trailer and two motorcycles along with all tools and outdoor furniture all stored with OODLES of space left over.

As I said right from the beginning, this is definitely a luxury home. The modern architecture won’t be for everyone, but this house is a definite “must see”.

  1. Although the den on the second level has a sloped ceiling, the space has been maximized with the placement of the television and sitting area.
