In the Green Meadows neighbourhood, this 3,081-square-foot residence backs on to Green Meadows Park. At one end of the park is a Colonial Revival house, built around 1950 on the equestrian estate owned by John Angus “Bud” McDouglad. “As chairman of the board and president of Argus Corporation from 1969 until his death in 1978, Bud McDouglad was one of Canada’s most powerful businessmen,” reads a historic plaque.
Eighty-two Green Meadows is a brick-and-stone home on a 43x108-ft. professionally landscaped property.
The house has numerous upgrades. The foyer has double doors, granite floors and a cathedral ceiling. Entertaining spaces include a living room with crown moulding and wainscotting, and a dining room with a dropped ceiling. The eat-in kitchen has been renovated and includes a built-in oven and a gas range.
There is a gas fireplace in the main-floor family room and another in the lower-level recreation room. A walkout from the lower level leads to the backyard, which has a patio for entertaining.
A walk-in closet with organizers and a five-piece ensuite bathroom are master bedroom features. The home is close to schools, shops, restaurants and transit.
