Pulling up to 188 Farrell Rd., you’ll first notice the commanding presence on the street which this home proudly displays. The architecturally superior French Chateau elevation is draped in stone and stucco, and boasts 5 exterior pot lights and over-sized windows which flood the home with morning sunshine. Pass the 4-car driveway and you’ll encounter the double-door entrance which leads you into your castle.
Once inside, you’ll be greeted by a large entry hall decorated with a sharp coffered ceiling design. Welcome! To the left is a convenient office with French doors. Next, you’ll encounter the spacious living/dining room, which is perfect for formal family dinners. Moving on, the focal point of the home is reached at the rear of the house – the kitchen/breakfast area/family room…This magnificent space is over 40’ wide, which makes it perfect for entertaining, as it glistens with afternoon sunshine which beams in through its massive windows. The chef’s kitchen features over $40,000 of top-of-the-line Miele appliances, and has been heavily upgraded with crown moulding, décor doors, soft-close drawers, under-valence lights, recycling cabinets, a lazy Suzanne, and a vacuum kick plate. Kitchen counter space is beyond plentiful - stylish quartz counters with double ogee edges and a matching backspash. There is a servery and butler’s pantry for prep work and storage, as well as a bar and a 2nd pantry that overlooks the family room, and can be converted into a wine cellar. Views from the back of the house are simply spectacular, and you can take them in while relaxing in your open-concept family room, while cozying up near the traditional cast-limestone gas fireplace. You’ll even find 2 juliette balconies here, as well as a patio door leading to your deck.
A spiral staircase with contemporary railing leads you to the 2nd level, where you’ll find 4 spacious bedrooms, each with their own walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom with raised vanities and stone counters. The master suite is truly unique, boasting a 10’6” tray ceiling, 12’x12’ dressing room, wellness room, dry sauna and spa-like 5-piece ensuite bath, which features marble counters, a frameless glass shower, make-up counter, and a freestanding tub with ravine views.

Downstairs, a massive walk-out basement with enlarged windows and towering 12’ ceilings awaits your finishing touch, leaving its immense potential to your imagination. Wow!
Loaded with extras, this dream home has been extensively upgraded to the tune of $150,000. 5” hand scraped Godiva maple hardwood and 12” x 24” polished Imperio Reale marble tiles cover the floor. In fact, an extra $10,000 was spent to create a concrete base for the marble, in order to ensure stability and sound proofing. 10’ & 9’ smooth ceilings grace the main and upper floors, with pot lights and built-in ceiling speakers littered through-out. A wrought-iron railing flanks the open staircase, while modern series trim, hinges, hardware and doors add a contemporary flare to the home. Hansgrohe faucets and Blanco sinks add a finishing touch along with layered Sheer Window Shades to block out the sun. Garage Door remotes are smartphone ready and roughed-in wiring for security cameras add an extra layer of safety, should you need it. You’ve found your dream home…
