Welcome home to Morningside's sophisticated urban retreat. This exquisite custom-built residence is nestled in the heart of Morningside on a generous .45-acre lot. 1257 University boasts a serene and picturesque creek setting steeped in privacy with neighbors located on only one side. This unique property harmoniously combines the convenience of urban living with the tranquility of nature, offering an unparalleled lifestyle experience. This 5 bed 5.5 bath brick home was utilized as a secondary property and presents like new construction. Intentionally designed to maximize a sophisticated upscale aesthetic while offering functionality for daily life; every detail from the floor plan to appliances to the designer finishes has been meticulously planned and maintained. A rocking chair front porch includes 2 sets of French doors creating a seamless flow of entertaining options. The soaring ceilings of the entry foyer invite you to explore a dedicated dining room and office/guest bedroom with ensuite. Gleaming hardwoods flow to the living room that includes built-in bookshelves, a gas fireplace, creek side views, access to the screened porch, and an open-concept layout to the kitchen for ease of entertaining, parenting, cooking, & just living. The Chef's kitchen is a culinary delight, equipped with top-of-the-line appliances including Wolf Induction and double ovens, SubZero, custom soft-close cabinetry, and a large island for making memories, doing homework, and hosting dinner parties. The butler's pantry provides plenty of bar storage, prep space, a wine chiller, plus walk-in pantry. Restoration Hardware lighting throughout the home. 3 beds and 3 baths are located up the main staircase. The primary suite is a true sanctuary overlooking your almost double lot, complete with a spa style ensuite with double vanities, soaking tub, seamless glass shower, floor to ceiling tile, WC, plenty of linen storage, and 2 walk-in closets. The Au Pair suite is situated up the back staircase complete with ensuite. The privacy and spaciousness of this location also makes for a fantastic home gym, bonus family room, or teen hang - easily customize it to your needs. The daylight unfinished terrace level provides a wealth of storage and is stubbed for a full bath. Finish it out to add a home theatre, in-law suite, and wine cellar. The attached two-car garage boasts epoxy flooring, a complete storage system, and direct access to the backyard. The exterior breadth of this lot truly makes it a unique oasis in the heart of the city. Spend evenings by the fire on the screened porch while the pets or kids play in the private backyard. BBQ on the Trex deck, host Friday night fire-pits by the creek or take up gardening. The gently meandering creek runs around the back of the property adding to the enchanting ambiance and securing privacy on 2 out of 3 sides of this lot. Looking for entertainment outside the home?
