Welcome to 3003 St. Luke Crescent, the most desirable property listed in the idyllic setting of beautiful Kingsville, Ontario. Canada’s southernmost town (located on the same latitude as northern California!) is an oasis of sparkling lakefront vistas, mild temperatures, and vibrant agriculture. This stunning property is ideally located; situated on a quiet crescent, in close proximity to an abundance of marinas and wineries, and the thriving wildlife and business opportunities offer recreation activities for both tourists and locals alike.
The home’s seller, Antonio DiMenna, is the original owner of what is (perhaps surprisingly) the newest home on the block, having built the home in 1987 when the other five neighbours were already there. “It’s a very peaceful neighbourhood,” explains DiMenna. “It’s a quiet crescent with no traffic; we all share the same brick wall along the lake.” The property itself is an acre and a quarter of impeccably landscaped yard with finished lower level that walks out to a patio, beautiful hedges and stonework, an in-ground custom saltwater pool, and two fire pits; perfect for entertaining or gazing out at the sparkling expanse of Lake Erie stretching out to the horizon, which DiMenna notes “really looks more like an ocean than a lake.”
3003 St. Luke Crescent sets an impressive great first impression with its stunning Tudor exterior, well-kept gardens and inviting entryway are only the prelude to the stunning details within. Inside, there are hardwood floors, limestone, slate and granite counters as well as numerous custom built-ins. DiMenna organized the initial construction close to three decades ago, planning ahead for a home that would offer long-term value. “This home was built to last,” says DiMenna. “I have made updates, of course, but was planning to create a dream home.” Some of the features, such as the open concept layout and the higher, vaulted ceilings were unusual at the time of construction, but envisioned by DiMenna as an ideal way to create livable, open space for families.
His attention to detail and small, luxurious touches is evident in the finishes and fixtures, and elegant lighting touches. While it was built to last, there have also been many updates since the initial construction, including adding a slate roof, new eavesdrop and an entire interior redo. The main floor features an elegant great room with a vaulted ceiling and cozy gas fireplace embedded in a stone hearth. The kitchen is just as beautiful as it is efficient, with an island, two built in ovens, a beautiful hearth and a large eating nook. The main level is completed by the formal dining room with French doors, a separate paneled study/office, a four piece bath and guest bedroom (perfect for those with mobility concerns!) rounds out the main level.
The upper level provides a private oasis: the master bedroom has a private balcony overlooking Lake Erie and the substantial backyard. The Master also contains its own gas fireplace, beautiful crown moulding, a walk-in closet, and a gorgeous ensuite with a Jacuzzi tub and granite shower. Another full bathroom and two more spacious bedrooms on the upper level, each complete with generous closets.
On the lower level, you’ll find a huge mirrored workout gym, massive entertaining area , as well as a separate custom kitchen and bar. There is also an entertainment centre, gas fireplace, and a bathroom with shower. Far from being a dark, tucked-away space; the two sets of sliding glass doors to the backyard keep this space bright and welcoming.
