Pristine, manicured gardens surround this French inspired villa in First Shaughnessy. Walk up a regal limestone way and staircase with classic sturdy railings to a solid Sapele front door. This home looks like a porcelain model with light exterior walls, French blue wooden windows, a light blue roof, and a round regal accent window at the peak. With its sturdy angular structure accented with curves, the home still looks gentle.
Adjacent is a putting green and lush grass lined in picture perfect foliage. Two smaller sets of stairs welcome to either side of the home to enjoy the over 1600ft of outdoor living. On the one side is a grand 35ft water feature. Follow to the back, and you’ll find a rose and hydrangea garden and a basalt BBQ area. Throughout the landscaping are bright periodic tiles, accenting the grass and foliage. Along the other side is an elegant pergola, finishing off the fairytale ambience in this outdoor space.
Once inside the home, you are welcomed by an oval entry with a ceiling fresco. With French inspired accents in this light coloured home, and darker accents from the doors and railing, the home is airy but still grounded. Further into the home is the grand hall that is adorned with limestone patterned flooring and a picturesque staircase.
Italian handcrafted olive wood millwork brings the kitchen alive along with the marbled countertops and backsplashes. The island is massive with hidden appliances. Intricate light fixtures that hang above the island look like they are adorned with strands of jewels.
Brazilian hardwood floors are installed across the living room, formal dining room and library floors, richening the rooms with a warm red-toned wood. Swarovski crystal chandeliers and French empire lighting is the icing of the home.
The lower level is ready to entertain, with an onyx bar, media room and a handcrafted cellar. It also has a nanny suite. And that is not all for this fairytale home; it has top-of-the-line La Scala system for every room in the home that can be controlled by both a smartphone and the security system.
3688 East Boulevard is a fairytale home with quality accents, breathtaking landscaping that welcomes the cheer of spring, and asks you to sit and enjoy it.
