Timeless interiors, sophistication and quality are the hallmarks of this estate residence with Art Deco influences. Designed by Kass & Associates, Sonrisa was created for entertaining on a grand scale. Much loved and beautifully maintained, the home is a showcase for artisan craftsmanship. From its gated entry to its wood and stone floors, stunning custom wrought-iron staircase, millwork, plasterwork, solid-wood, handcrafted doors, volume ceilings and custom lighting, Sonrisa is a savvy, 21st-century interpretation of mansions past. Its gracious circular drive with fountain leads to an exquisite main entrance with custom arched doors. Inside, its dramatic reception hall is built to welcome guests. Formal rooms on each side are finished with pristine, solid walnut and oak floors. Natural light streams through tall windows ? note the views throughout the house. Its family room, features a double-height ceiling with cove lighting, custom built-ins and access to a party-sized rear terrace. Just beyond is an over-the-top kitchen and butler's pantry lined in Downsview cabinetry and outfitted with everything a caterer needs to serve (and clean up from) a crowd. A sitting area with fireplace is perfect for everyday, as is the sun-filled breakfast room with ribbed, carousel-style ceiling and access to the terrace. An office, a small reading/play room, utility/mudroom, rear stairwell and access to 2- and 3-car garages is just beyond the kitchen area. There are two powder rooms on the first floor. Private quarters and a richly paneled library are upstairs. The main bedroom suite features a small rotunda entry, sleeping quarters with a corner fireplace trimmed in slab marble, his and hers walk-in closets with furniture-finish built-ins, and a luxurious marble bath. There are 3 additional, en suite bedrooms all with beautifully designed, custom tile baths. The fun lower level is outfitted with a classic 1950's diner with bar and banquette seating, game area, home theater, gym with full bath/steam shower and additional sitting room with fireplace. The 3.4-acre grounds are completely fenced and dotted with mature trees and specimen plantings, a Koi pond with waterfall, a second fountain, and the very graceful rear terrace that steps down to a lush lawn. All systems and mechanicals are top-grade, from its Ludowici tile roof, elevator and Lutron lighting to radiant-heated stone and tile floors, efficient, zoned heating and air conditioning, security and more.
