Welcome to 17 Empire Avenue

This impressive home has been extensively renovated throughout with thoughtful design and luxurious finishes.

With wonderful curb appeal, the front of this property features limestone steps leading up to the inviting front porch. New bricks (2019) and a new front door and windows (2017) further enhance the aesthetic.

17 Empire Avenue was renovated back to the studs in 2017 to create a more functional and beautiful open concept layout to accommodate modern living. The foyer features stone flooring from Ciot with a built-in closet to tuck away coats and shoes. The spacious dining room features hardwood floors, built-in speakers in the ceiling, large windows, a custom built-in bar and a plant trough from Style Garage.

The custom kitchen is absolutely stunning, serving as a focal point of the main level. It features cabinetry by LEIGHT, Miele appliances including a steam oven, oven, induction stove top, dishwasher and fridge and an expansive centre island with plenty of storage and a beautiful countertop by Cambria. 

The spacious living room is perfect for entertaining guests or for relaxing with family. This space includes hardwood floors, built-in speakers in the ceiling, pot lights, a wall-mounted entertainment unit from Style Garage and elegant 2 panel black sliding doors leading out to the impressive back deck and yard.

The upper level includes three fantastic bedrooms all with good sized closets and hardwood floors. The primary bedroom includes wall-to-wall closets from California Closets and a large window allowing for plenty of natural light. The washroom on this level is a serene space that was fully renovated in 2022 with modern fixtures, heated floors, a separate tub and a large glass shower.

The lower level is nicely finished with a large rec room with great ceiling height, California Closets for additional storage and enough space to accommodate a home office, play area for the kids or a fitness area if desired. This level also includes a separate laundry room and the convenience of another full washroom.

The backyard is a wonderful extension of the living space with a large back deck and a new fence (2019) as well as a spacious low maintenance backyard. Plenty of room to barbeque, entertain friends and family and for the kids to play.

This magazine-worthy residence was freshly painted throughout (2023) and is ready for you to move in and enjoy!
