A large family who enjoys kids running around all the time and hosting lots of parties will love this house on Timberlane Drive, says listing agent Elli Davis of Royal LePage Real Estate Services.

The grand and spacious home was built 18 years ago and was extensively redesigned and redecorated about five years ago. “It’s in move-in condition,” she says. “It’s the first time it’s been offered for sale.”

The lower level has a 33×17-foot indoor pool with a hand-painted mural, a spa and a change room. Nanny’s quarters, direct access to a five-car underground garage and an elevator that offers access to all three levels of the home are practical features.

For those who don’t have a summer home, this property also offers outdoor living. “You can open the doors on the lower level and go outside to the ravine,” she says.

A gas fireplace in the living room, a separate dining room, a powder room and a panelled library are main-floor features. A kitchen, with two islands, lends itself to use as a kosher kitchen or two chefs in the family. There are two sets of everything, three dishwashers and a pantry for a Passover kitchen, she says. The family room off the kitchen has a walkout to a deck.

The main floor also has a study, a two-storey skylit foyer and a bedroom with a three-piece bathroom. “The bedroom would make an ideal play area,” Ms. Davis says.

Three electric air cleaners, three forced-air gas furnaces, two washers and dryers and an alarm system are other features of the seven-bedroom, eight-bathroom brick home.

Timberlane Drive, in the York Downs area, “is known for its large lots, exclusivity and quiet location away from the hustle and bustle, yet easily accessible to the highway,” she says. “A park, TTC, shops and synagogues are nearby and it’s a stone’s throw from Earl Bales Park.”
