So excited to announce the Greystone House is finally for sale! Sharing general information, photos, my favorite upgrades and more!
Can you even believe it’s been a year and a half since we first purchased the Greystone House? When we started this project in January 2021, I hesitated to call it a flip house because I knew we’d be pouring our heart and soul into it. Here we are, 1.5 years later, and the Greystone House is finally for sale! Dare I say, it’s a masterpiece!
Now it’s time to find the perfect buyer who’ll enjoy all of the upgrades and amenities we’ve added to this home. We are praying to find the perfect family who’ll love gathering in the gourmet kitchen, hosting game night in the oversized downstairs bonus room, relaxing in the spa-like master ensuite, taking evening walks through the quiet, family-friendly cul-de-sac, and otherwise making the Greystone House their “home sweet home.”
Before I continue, would you please do me a favor? Would you share the listing with anyone who might be interested?
General Information and List Price
I have so much to share, but let’s start with the basics:
- Built in 2007, the Greystone House is 3,332 square feet.
- There are 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, an attached double car garage, and a partially finished basement with potential for separate living quarters.
- The house sits on a 0.7-acre rolling lot in a quiet, family-friendly neighborhood.
- List price: $499,900.
We put in nearly $100,000 worth of upgrades, but I will mention my two favorites today: the kitchen and the master ensuite.
The kitchen is my favorite room at the Greystone House. With its cathedral ceilings, extra-long kitchen island, designer cabinetry with lots of custom features, and “Carrara Select” quartz countertops, it’s no surprise that it is my dream kitchen.
Let’s talk about those custom cabinetry features for a minute. We’ve got pull-out pantry shelves, an appliance garage with a hidden microwave, pull-out trash and recycling bins, and a pull-out spice rack, just to name a few.
Of course, one of the biggest upgrades was the 8-foot kitchen island we added, with enough space to comfortably fit 4-5 stools.
To add some warmth to the kitchen, we incorporated a greige beadboard backsplash, brass and matte black lighting fixtures, brass hardware and custom floating shelves with brass railing. The back of the island repeats the same beadboard finish as the backsplash, creating a sense of intentionality.
We also added a built-in range hood with standard, gesture, and remote control options, modern stainless steel appliances, and designer sink and a semi-professional faucet combo from BLANCO. Inspired by faucets used in professional, commercial kitchens, this pull-down faucet is the ultimate mix of luxury and performance. My favorite features include the high spout, the high-pressure head, and the well-designed, magnetized docking arms.
One detail I’m especially excited about is the custom backsplash behind the sink. I love this charming detail and was so excited to incorporate it into the Greystone kitchen.
The Ensuite Master
The ensuite master is perhaps the biggest transformation we’ve ever done. Do you remember how it looked before?!
When designing the Greystone master bathroom, I had one idea in mind: timeless luxury. My vision started with black sliding French doors leading into the bathroom, centered on the vanity. I wanted the first impression to be a breathtaking, perfectly symmetrical moment.
Using French doors allowed us to capitalize on the amazing natural light coming from the bedroom. Even when the doors are closed, there is still ample light from the privacy glass. The French doors themselves were inspired by the work of Toronto’s premier architecture and interior design firm Audax. There is something so intriguing, glamorous and seductive about these doors – wouldn’t you agree? They’re the perfect blend of industrial and sophisticated elegance, and it was my starting point for the ensuite bathroom design.
I used the “Azores” sconces from Kichler Lighting to flank the polished rose gold “Dante” mirrors from Howard Elliott; this combination added so much glamour to this space!
The shower is another star of this ensuite design. It’s a very comfortable size – 4 feet wide and 7 feet long. When designing the shower, I wanted it to feel luxurious and over-the-top. I used classic white tile in combination with trim and border pieces to achieve a custom designer look. For the shower floor, I chose white penny tile for its great traction and modern look. The shower has a 4-foot wide glass enclosure and an open doorway to minimize traffic restrictions.
I could spend days talking about the Greystone House; as I’ve said, we poured our heart and soul into this property and are excited to pass it on to the right family. We’d appreciate anyone who wants to share the listing and help us get the word out about this beautiful property!
