To those who appreciate exclusivity: lean in.

A North York property coming soon to the MLS is offering the chance for you to stake your claim early, and snatch up a gorgeous estate before it ever even hits the official market.

Tucked into a residential loop just off the Don Mills and York Mills intersection, 21 Ruden Crescent boasts a stunning exterior, amplified by the potential to serve as the ultimate family home.

Listed by Right at Home Realty Inc.'s Kathy Markoff, the vast abode is set to be cleared and staged by Kelly Allen Design in early October. Open houses will run for three days over the Thanksgiving weekend, with offers to pour in on October 14.

While the address itself rests in a quiet pocket of the Parkwoods-Donalda area, this home's future residents will benefit from ease of access all around. Just a few minutes' walk in any direction leads to shops, schools, and restaurants. Meanwhile, the home is also just across the street from the Don River and its surrounding lush greenery, which means lovely views and charming strolls are always within arms' reach.

That said, we'd argue that the property itself gives the nearby ravine a run for its money.

Having been professionally landscaped, the sprawling gardens create serene, tranquil vibes. Mature trees and lush grasses are dappled with Japanese maples, a gorgeous gazebo, a BBQ area, and multiple interlocking patio spaces. While yes, this abode's buyer will surely head down to the Don River for frequent visits, the backyard is what friends and family will really ogle over.

As it stands, the interior of the home boasts 10 large rooms spanning across more than 3,800 sq. ft. of living space. With 4 beds, 3.5 baths, and a 3-car garage, every member of the family will have more than enough space to call their own (and their automobiles will, too).

The main level's high ceilings, multiple fireplaces, white lacquer baby grand piano (included in the sale), and sunroom complete with double skylights all work together to create an ultra-inviting communal space. And, this home's new owners are encouraged to implement cosmetic changes that will suit their personal preferences.

What's more, the abode offers private entry to its fully-finished basement, which boasts its own kitchen and bath. Whether the lower-level space is integrated into the main home, is used as an in-law suite, or is fitted as a source of rental income, will be for this lucky buyer to decide.

Asking $2,999,999, this North York charmer has ample potential to be snatched up before it has even technically arrived. To learn more and stake your (early) claim, visit
