Richard's Notes


DaSilva's Gem sparkles deep in Peterborough's enclave of Exclusive Homes.  I almost shot past the home in my first visit - although the coiffed landscape suggested something special, had I paused to reflect.  The inviting Foyer opens up to expansive washed oak floors - SOLID, not a squeak throughout the entire dwelling.  The next thing I noticed is the Polished Granite Counter (Centre Island cum Wet Bar) - just above at eye level is the Kitchen Window that opens to an explosion of green spaces overlooking the shimmering Ontonabee River.


I begged to differ on Carol's suggestion that the Study on the Main Level across the Guest Bedroom may be used as another Bedroom...it is so cozy as it is.


The Living Room opens to an expansive deck (10' x 20') - unusual with the intermingling of wood and glass to maximize the waterview.  There is a walk-down to the Stone Patio on the Ground Level - yet another flight of stone steps flanked by StepDown Terraces of Floral Gardens before reaching the expansive green space leading to the deck and some 49' of waterfront.


The finished Lower Level is an almost self contained, sans Kitchen, Guest Suite with a 3 Piece Semi-Ensuite plus Living Room with Double French Doors that open to the Stone Patio.


The Master Sanctum Santorum on the Second Level is Amazing! 12' 3" Ceiling with Ceiling Fan and Sky Light plus a Huge Deck (12' x 12') - again with the intermittent glass panel to maximize the waterview.  Ensuite Sitting Room plus Ensuite 5 Piece Spa with Double Shower, Marble Counter and Claw Foot Tub.


The Home somewhat reminds me of the "Tardis" of the Sixties' Dr. Who's fame - deceivingly small from the Outside that opens to a marvelous interior; although the special appointments and features would make it more like a Jewel Box with different compartments.
