Having a new home with all the high-quality bells and whistles is a dream for many home buyers. But buying new often means putting up with surrounding construction, less community and a minimal amount of infrastructure as the neighbourhood can sometimes take years to establish itself and feel like home.

This high-end, custom-built abode, selling for $1.45 million, offers potential buyers the opportunity to own a brand-new home in an older, well-established neighbourhood. With over $200,000 spent in upgrades, this is an ideal family residence with four bedrooms, a main floor family room, a finished walkout basement, two laundry areas and five bathrooms.

The builder is a smaller hands-on builder. He used the highest quality material he could find to help make this the best home possible for the new home owner. He has been meticulously building this home for over a year now, not allowing people to rush him through the work, says listing agent Tatiana Sidorova.

All the millwork was done on location. This is not a typical subdivision home. Its a custom-built solid home packed with upgrades already included in the price, says Sidorova.

Located in the heart of Etobicokes West Mall area on a quiet street in a family-oriented community, the home is about a five-minute walk south to Bloor St W. to Kipling subway station and a GO station.

There are many stores, restaurants, cafes and shops on and around Bloor St. W. as well as on Burnhamthorpe Rd. which is just a block north of the home. Also, Wedgewood Park, schools and a recreation centre are close by. The East Mall is less than a five-minute drive from the property, where there is a Loblaws for convenient grocery shopping.

The property is also a short drive to Cloverdale Mall, and has easy access to Hwy. 427. It is about a 10-minute drive to Toronto Pearson International Airport.

The stately home features a limestone stone faade and a centre hall floor plan. Interior highlights include 10-foot main-floor ceilings with triple crown moulding, Mahogany doors, walnut built-ins and staircases, oak hardwood floors, Roberto Cavalli marble tiles, two fireplaces, oversized wood trimming, heated bathroom floors, and 10-foot ceilings also on the lower level.
