Where it is
6918 Legare Dr. S.W.
Tuscan-inspired homes typically feature straight, simple lines and natural materials, while details like tiles, wrought iron and marble act as accents throughout the home. This home draws on these inspirations to capture a Tuscan look and feel. Outside, a natural stone exterior and wood siding evoke the rustic elements of an Italian setting. Inside, oak hardwood flooring, custom arches and millwork, terracotta tiles and marble create a natural and elegant look together. Soaring ceilings and an open floor plan complete the airiness and sense of warmth throughout the home.
What to love
The home’s interior is bathed in warm, natural lighting thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows. The kitchen is a true haven for culinary enthusiasts with top-of-the-line appliances, a wine fridge, coffee system, recycling pullouts and more. A formal dining area and a year-round heated patio extend the living area and offer a spacious setup for entertaining. The focal point of the main floor awaits in the great room with heated terracotta tiles, scalloped ceilings and a custom-sculpted, wood-burning fireplace.
In a separate wing on the main floor is the primary bedroom, which has a spacious layout, private balcony, coffee bar/sitting area, ensuite and walk-in closet.
The basement is a great spot for entertaining with in-floor heating, a golf simulator and a gym. The attached, heated triple garage offers room for parking and a warm space to set up a workshop or additional storage.
What to consider
This home is close to schools, parks like North Glenmore Park, shopping and Lakeview amenities. It’s also a 10-minute drive to the downtown core where more amenities await.
