A stunning combination of history, renewal, charm, and grandeur. If you have taken the time to drive or walk under the gorgeous canopy of trees that grace University Drive, you are sure to have seen this home as it instantly draws you in with its stately demeanour yet welcoming appeal. Built-in the early 1900s as one of Saskatoon's original mansions, the home was designed by Frank P Martin who is known for much of Saskatoon's most striking architecture in that era. The past number of years has brought a meticulous and extensive renovation to the home - restoring it to as much of the original plan as possible while addressing wiring, plumbing, mechanical and so much more. The end result is a truly breathtaking family home that offers all of the modern conveniences you may want such as Redl kitchen with 19.5 linear feet of counter on one wall and an additional lower height counter for baking. The oval glasswork in the front door is designed and created by Lee Brady while the 2nd floor bathroom vanity was custom built out of solid walnut. Updated bathrooms and windows that reflect the character of the home, restored hardwood floors and detailed woodwork, rubber shingles with lifetime transferrable warranty, sun-drenched study, and private rooftop patio are just a few more of the details that you will find in this home where nothing has been overlooked. A 3rd-floor self-contained suite is directly accessible from outside and can be locked off inside - it would make an ideal nanny/granny suite or excellent guest retreat. Today it includes a peaceful meditation/yoga/exercise room. Outside, the park-like backyard has been re-landscaped to ensure water drains away from the house. The original carriage house, with loft, is still functioning as a garage and adds to the charm. Situated on 3 lots for ample space and privacy all while being a short walk to the river, Broadway, downtown, and University. Schedule a private viewing before it disappears!!
