Consider yourself a movie buff? Well, this property lets residents say goodbye to watching films on their laptops by providing them with their own uber-fancy home theatre in the basement. To enhance the viewing experience on the massive 155-inch curved screen, the ceiling has even been designed to mimic a starry night — how cool is that?

The home is a corner lot, flooded with natural light from large pane windows and rare, 11-ft. ceilings.

On the main floor, there’s a foyer, a wok kitchen with Calcutta quartz countertops, an open-plan living room with a Napoleon gas fireplace, a cozy den, mud room, and an elegantly-designed dining room.

Enjoy dining al fresco? Future residents of this property can delight in the fact that it has an expansive, south-facing composite deck that’s perfect for summer BBQs and relaxing on the weekend with a glass of wine in hand.

There’s also a TV hookup for those blissful outdoor movie nights.

On the upper level of the house, you’ve got airy bedrooms, laundry, and a walk-in closet to make getting ready each day even more enjoyable.
