A truly remarkable property nestled at the end of a cul-de-sac in Rockland. Blending an original DiCastri design with a modern West Coast finish has created a stunning family home. The extensive 2006 renovation has expanded floor space and functionality while respecting the integrity of the original design. The ?great room?, featuring the architect?s trademark vaulted ceiling and exposed beams separate the sleeping quarters at both ends of the house. The gorgeously landscaped gardens, exercise pool, extensive outdoor south-facing deck, exquisitely designed kitchen, and the master bathroom ensuite put this home in a category by itself. This is truly a unique oasis in an idyllic neighbourhood. This is a prestigious home.
