Where it is
1106 Frontenac Ave. S.W.
While a farmhouse-inspired home may bring up thoughts of a classic red and white barn, it’s not quite the same. The French farmhouse style blends the charm of a French countryside home with the luxury features of a mansion. In this home, that look is achieved with the rustic use of wood, stone and metals, alongside elegant greys for a modern touch. This home boasts stonemasonry on the outside with dark brown Hardie boards, while rustic light fixtures, sliding barn doors and vaulted ceilings complete the look inside.
What to love
Located along the tree-lined Frontenac Avenue, the location only adds to the feel of this French farmhouse-inspired home. Inside, the home boasts 10-foot ceilings throughout. A warm office/den awaits on the main floor, alongside a spacious dining room, powder room, living area and cozy breakfast nook. The modern kitchen pairs distressed cabinetry with granite countertops and subway tile backsplash. A pair of rustic sliding barn doors leads to the main floor mudroom or into the butler’s pantry with heated flooring.
Upstairs, there are three bedrooms with vaulted ceilings and ensuites with heated flooring. The primary bedroom boasts an attached laundry room, a lengthy walk-in closet, an ensuite with a steam shower, a grand soaker tub, and a weathered glass feature wall.
On the lower level, the recreation room’s gas fireplace and barn wood feature wall make for a unique centrepiece. The wet bar and walk-out add entertainment options, while the workout room and fourth bedroom complete the space.
What to consider
This home is nestled on a large 0.18-acre lot with four bedrooms, making it an ideal place to live for young couples and families. The Upper Mount Royal community is a great place to raise a family, with ample greenery, walking trails, local parks and access to nearby amenities and dining.
