Feature Listing: 68 Haig Ave
Ask anyone what the most important rule in real estate is, and you will hear: “location, location, location.” When it comes to location, very few settings can match a west-facing backyard that overlooks the third green of one of Toronto’s most storied private golf clubs – the Toronto Hunt.
Golfer or not, for those looking to find a country-in-the-city experience, there is no better location than 68 Haig Avenue – a quiet cul-de-sac where the beauty of all four seasons is on display, and where you can watch deer and fox roam freely across the course.
The home itself is a masterpiece. Recently completed, it was designed to respect the neighbouring properties, with a third floor that is set back from the street. At first glance, you would never envision that the home offers 5+1 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms across 3,550 square feet of living space!
A poured concrete driveway, retaining wall, and front steps offer a modern vibe and guarantee low-maintenance living, as does the metal siding that clads the home. Landscaping can be chosen by the buyer.
Inside the home, a clean Scandinavian aesthetic graces the space. Just look at those gorgeous wide-plank white oak engineered hardwood floors with Aria vents that feature the same hardwood inset, turning something as mundane as a heat register or cold air return into a work of art! Small details like this are evident throughout the home, and the imported no-show hinges on the main floor powder room door are just another example. The two-sided corner gas fireplace is not only functional but doubles as a piece of art, while the floor-to-ceiling windows flood the home with light – a theme you will notice throughout.
To juxtapose the bright and airy feeling of the home, the black kitchen grounds the room and allows your eyes to naturally be drawn to the stunning views of the third green. Don’t overlook just how spectacular this kitchen is! A large island that accommodates four stools is wrapped in a waterfall-leathered stone counter and houses a wall oven, a double sink with priceless views, a five-burner gas cooktop, a panelled dishwasher and fridge, and the icing on the cake – a hidden walk-in pantry that houses a 150-plus-bottle wine fridge, built-in microwave, and plenty of built-in storage.
On the nine-foot-ceilinged lower level, relax and enjoy the warmth on your toes from the heated and polished exposed concrete floors. The 20-ft x 13.5-ft recreation room would be the perfect space for a custom home theatre, while the secondary room with an oversized window, designed as a dream home gym, could also be a spare bedroom or craft room. It boasts a stunning three-piece bathroom with a floating vanity, backlight vanity mirror, and a curbless glass shower that walks through a custom sauna!
Climb the waterfall staircase, with ambient LED tread lights and frameless glass rails, to arrive on the second floor – which houses three bedrooms, three bathrooms, laundry, and a linen closet. Turn to your right and enter the owner’s suite, then stop to take in that irreplaceable view of the third green. Enter your ensuite by one of the two pocket doors and feel the weight of your day immediately lift as you pour a bath in that deep freestanding tub. Don’t miss the oversized curbless glass shower with a ceiling-mounted rain shower head and integrated drain, the long double vanity with a frameless backlit mirror, the water closet with a frosted glass door, and the tiled walls that give a true hotel spa vibe. Changing is a breeze, with the walk-in closet off the ensuite. Both kids’ rooms feature walk-through closets with ensuite bathrooms – talk about spoiled – and the second floor laundry features side-by-side front loaders with a counter for folding.
The third floor features two additional bedrooms that share a four-piece bathroom, as well as a powder room with a wet bar and beverage fridge that leads to a private rooftop lounge. The terrace is the pièce de résistance of this stunning property. It’s the perfect place to entertain guests, whether you’re hosting a barbecue or a cocktail party. The wet bar and beverage fridge mean you can keep drinks cold and refreshments flowing all night long, and the powder room ensures that your guests won’t need to go downstairs to use the facilities. But the real star of the show is the view. From the rooftop terrace, you can see all the way to Lake Ontario and take in the breathtaking natural beauty of the surrounding area. Whether you’re watching the sunset or admiring the city lights, you’ll never tire of the view from this incredible vantage point.
Overall, 68 Haig Avenue is the epitome of luxury living. From the spacious and elegantly designed interior to the stunning rooftop terrace, it offers everything you could want in a dream home. Don’t miss your chance to own this one-of-a-kind property.
