On the northern hills of the picturesque Oak Ridges Moraine sits a truly spectacular heritage home that blends rich history with the ultimate in contemporary design. 42 Victoria Drive, a statuesque 19th-century Victorian that’s situated on a sprawling lot, is anything but cookie-cutter; any passerby can’t help but admire its peaked gabled windows, flanked by intricate millwork, and chic charcoal board-batten exterior.

A covered porch offers the perfect spot to catch the sunrise over a steaming coffee, while taking in the charms of the surrounding village.

Inside, it’s evident that no attention to detail has been spared; the interior has been lovingly updated, with plenty of subtle -- yet luxurious -- architectural elements that pay homage to the house’s heritage. 

Stepping in, one is welcome to hang their coat in the cheery mudroom, complete with heated slate flooring and convenient built-in shelving. Past the rustic sliding industrial farmhouse door, though, the focal point immediately turns to the staircase -- an architectural triumph incorporating metal and wood beams, that links the upper and lower levels, which account for a total of 3,500 square feet of living space.

In contrast to the exterior’s rich palette, the home’s living spaces are drenched with natural light, thanks to vaulted, 10-foot ceilings, light and airy aesthetic, and blonde hardwood flooring. Architectural details such as the coffered ceilings in the den and living room, elegant archways, and structured wainscotting add a quiet sense of quality.

The open-concept living and dining area offers both an elegant, yet intimate, setting to gather with family, or entertain in style. The kitchen, located toward the back of the house, is a chef’s dream, featuring quartz counters and a breakfast bar, white cabinetry with gold-toned fixtures, and sleek subway tile backsplashes. The space is as functional as it is beautiful, appointed with commercial-grade, stainless steel appliances. West facing windows ensure dinner parties will benefit from a gorgeous sunset backdrop, while a convenient walk-out provides direct access to the 165-square foot backyard.

On the spacious second floor, five bedrooms wait, with an additional three baths including two powder rooms, each with their own unique attributes. A dream-worthy primary suite is the ultimate private enclave, complete with a soaring 15-foot vaulted ceiling, large windows, and four-piece ensuite.
