Elite Property Showcase –

SOLD!  Congratulations to the seller and buyers! Enjoy your special, exquisite place.

An extraordinarily rare Riverfront Property. Boasting a potentially lucrative development investment opportunity for a wide array of prospective buyers. Savvy developers, builders, investors, and discerning homebuyers alike should take note of this golden opportunity. Optimally positioned, just north of the prestigious riverfront development along Highland Park Drive and slightly southwest of Hoddinott Road near the Glengarry Park district. The location of the land itself is coveted, and enhanced with a distinctive, river diverting CREEK. Additionally, the design & placement of the well-kept, unconventional 2-Storey Home that occupies its 4.57 Acres is exceptional. Nestled on highly sought-after soil within a private, tranquil setting. One of EAST ST PAUL’s best kept secrets, packed with potential as a possible ELITE SUBDIVISION ENCLAVE. 

A canopy of mature trees flanking the private road provides a concealed entryway from Henderson Hwy.  Ornamental Lions atop Brick Columns mark the northerly entrance to the grounds of this remarkable Riverfront Estate with 247 feet of frontage. The park-like roadway carves its way north then widens and bends westward past a former storied Barn site and chain-link fenced Tennis Court. Further along the tree-marked road to a clearing where the rear elevation of the 1980 custom-built home is fully visible. A further southward bend in the road brings you toward an expansive oval-shaped, asphalt round-about Driveway between the front elevation of the home and the developed eastern, gently sloping bank of the Red River, some 780 feet from the initial entryway.

This drive is immediately followed by a huge Interlocking Brick & Paver Stone space that introduces the formal, Front Entryway to the home. It’s flanked by a Rock Garden feature and the landscaped embankment.

Additional parking is the obvious utilization of this large, paver stone space, but alternatively, this area could be developed as an alternate Patio Area for a future in-ground Swimming Pool that could be easily accommodated on the rear grounds area between the home and tennis court! The existing 10’ x 12’ Shed currently stores maintenance equipment, including a water pump for the inground sprinkler master control, and could be expanded to house future pool equipment. A pool enthusiast’s project worth contemplating.

An amazing, professionally landscaped, Rock Garden provides a focal point for the oval driveway featuring a variety of outdoor elements including large Granite boulders, towering Pyramid Cedars, Mugo Pine Shrubs, Lillies, Prairie Grasses and an array of assorted greenery and flowers. 3 powered Water Fountains with year-round lighting on a base of red gravel rock, accentuate this space.

The raised embankment, covered in gravel rock and dotted with Lilac Shrubs & Junipers, provides a manicured, natural boundary with sweeping views. The gravel rock continues along the upward slope of the fortified riverbank, on either side of an impressive concrete staircase and back down a gentle slope toward the river where a concrete landing awaits further development; primed for a Dock extension.

A major value-added component of this compelling property runs alongside as a Creek that flows from the Red River and helps divert any rising waters toward its southerly border and subsequently eastward. It is fortified with a substantial retaining wall built-up on its bank as a prominent Dike, specifically for providing seasonal flood prevention as a diversion for any rising river levels.

Nestled among its majestic surroundings, the lavish home is architecturally distinct from most conventional two-storey houses with its 17th century influenced Mansard style roof, Tudor style board accenting, Inset & Dormer Windows, and a recessed 2nd floor Balcony that extends from the Primary Bedroom. Originally constructed with an intent to embrace its surroundings, this home’s window placements allow every room that contains a window to have a scenic view, particularly the 4 massive picture windows positioned on the Main and Mezzanine Loft levels that face the river and provide spectacular, panoramic views. Additional vistas to the outdoor scenery include:

  • an elevated PVC Deck built on a solid concrete base with curbing
  • a screened-in Porch or Veranda
  • a large Paver Patio
  • 16’ x 14’ PTW Deck with extending aggregate walkways
  • An elevated Balcony

The gently sloping riverbank, equipped with the concrete stairway & platform allow for the ultimate, sweeping vantage point of the waterways. Breathtaking scenery and sunsets that amaze. All these elements enable the home to maintain a strong connection to its serene, natural environment.

The unique Interior design is spacious and brilliant. Meticulously well-maintained over the years and exceptionally clean. Mostly open concept with a neutral, soft colour palette that is easily adaptable to any décor. Outdoor elements have been beautifully integrated into the interior construction. Among them are Granite, Marble, Copper, Oak, Fir and Cedar. Almost every room is vast and bright, utilizing large, Triple-pane Polar Windows and premium Doors with gilded Glass Inserts installed in 2006. One of the most distinguishing building components of this outstanding home are the 1-foot-thick, 2 x 4 offset walls. This provides tremendous stability and excellent R-value helping to keep the home cozy in winter months and cooler in the summer. The numerous windows throughout not only provide an abundance of natural light but also allow cool summer breezes to permeate interior spaces.

The Entryway boasts a prominent, stamped concrete Staircase (2020) and beautiful premium, Polar Door with Sidelight (2006) that leads to a spacious Foyer with ceramic Tile floor.

The main floor Den/Living Room, Great Room and Dining Room are adorned with brilliant and impeccably maintained, Oak Hardwood Flooring. Oak Millwork is found throughout.

Remarkable Copper Panel Feature Wall marks a transition to the Den/Living Room where formal meetings and visits can take place or when informal privacy or solitude is desired. This space is marked by a prominent window that allows for exceptional views and a pathway for natural light.

A 2-pc Guest Bath strikes an impression with a floor-to-ceiling Cedar Wall and includes a window. Just steps away are Double Garden Doors at the roomy rear Landing allowing direct access to the Backyard Deck and greenspace.

An elegant, spacious Dining Room is poised with a fabulous 6-pc grilled Bay Window fitted with Hunter Douglas Custom Blinds. An idyllic space for a formal, traditional or holiday dinner.

Feast your eyes on the size and beauty of the gourmet Eat-In Kitchen. Nicely appointed for a Chef and any entertainer’s dream!  Well-situated with access from all directions. Double Garden French Doors from the Porch/Patio area, access from the Laundry Room & Back Landing near the attached Garage, from the Backyard BBQ Patio Garden Door and adjacent to the Great Room/Dining Room area. So convenient!

When was the last time you saw a Fireplace in a Kitchen? This one has a rustic, floor-to-ceiling, reclaimed Brick, Wood Burning Fireplace with an elevated Marble Hearth. Timeless in its appeal.

A wealth of well-preserved Oak Cabinetry provides much of the storage space you will ever need. But for good measure, there is an additional 8 ft. x 6 ft. Walk-in Pantry that will eliminate any doubt!

Beautiful Granite Countertops adorn a tiered Eating Bar, with Pendant Lighting, and provide a rich contrast to the full, Glass-Tiled Backsplash, with motif accent, above the Double Stainless-steel Sink with premium Faucet Assembly.

Spacious Eating Area with elegant, suspended Light Fixture.

A charming Laptop Station with Oak bookshelves, for cookbooks or display items, also incorporates a Granite Countertop. The entire Kitchen is finished with Ceramic Tile Flooring from Carrara Tile & Marble.

Premium built-in appliance upgrades include a Whirlpool Built-in Oven (2020), Bosch Dishwasher (2017), Jenn-Air Cooktop (2003), Kitchen Aid Stainless-Steel Fridge and a classic Jenn-Air Built-in Convection Oven.

They say the heart of every home is in the Kitchen. That may be true, and it is difficult not to imagine that the heart of this home extends to the tremendous Great Room with ceiling open to the astonishing, upper-level 3-sided Mezzanine Loft.

A French Door from the Eat-in Kitchen provides a stylish transition.

Magnificent floor-to ceiling Granite Feature Wall extends to the width of this space and includes a wood-burning Granite Fireplace with Hammered Copper Surround, a ground level Marble Hearth, and elevated Marble Hearth. It’s also prepped for a Mantle with existing hardware.

Two massive, tri-pane, picture Windows facilitate breathtaking views of the riverfront features.

The path to the upper-level 3-sided Mezzanine is taken by way of a masterfully constructed, solid Fir Staircase with adjoining Railings, Posts and Cedar Border Wall accenting.

This captivating mono stringer stair utilizes a single beam-like stringer supporting the center of the structure which results in a unique ‘riser-less’ profile.

 The 3-sided Mezzanine Loft is arguably the centerpiece of this distinctive home. It is an incredibly unique characteristic not often found in any home, let alone any conventional two-storey design. An enchanting space that draws you in for a closer look at what it can offer. Superb sight lines to the glorious landscape through another two massive picture Windows. Envision this as a place of relaxation and meditation. A peaceful, tranquil escape. An inspiring place to read, gather for a chat, or simply just observe. A rare, scenic luxury indeed.

A Primary Bedroom is always an important consideration for most homebuyers. The Primary Bedroom suite in this home provides a very spacious sanctuary and luxurious retreat. Double Doors open to this bright space, filled with natural light that floods the room from the double door entry of the private, sheltered Balcony! A lovely vista from which to gaze out on your day, especially weekends. An ideal, elevated vantage point to enjoy a beverage of choice, and admire your forested surroundings.

The interior focal point of this Primary Suite is a grand, floor-to-ceiling Cedar Panelled, Wood-Burning Fireplace with Brick Surround and rustic Brick Hearth! A rare and very romantic feature for a Primary Bedroom. Placed alongside a sizeable, double Window that provides priceless views! Another architectural element of this space features a Glass Block partition Wall that allows for privacy as well as natural light to flow to the Ensuite.
