McGovern Estates is delighted to present ‘Evergreen’, a superior designer residence, high set, and poised to capture stunning views to the ‘18th’ on Old Greystones Golf Club; enjoying arguably one of the most exclusive and unique settings in the Old Burnaby, very privately tucked away southeast of ‘Farm Lane’, but minutes’ walk from the town’s amenities including Dart station, library and south beach.
‘Evergreen’, has been masterfully designed blending original character as evidenced by the granite stonework, with contemporary design. With a spectacular view over Greystones Golf Club framed in the principal room’ windows, and shared with a loggia, a sun balcony, and paved alfresco entertaining terrace, the house offers classic contemporary finishes and design levels, all in a privately manicured courtyard setting safely concealed by electric gates with private parking.
Meticulous attention to detail on the vendor’s part is evidenced here from the specially sourced granite stonework clad twin-leaf insulated walls which echo those of the original manor house to the elegant proportions, light filled dual height living spaces, balconies off the kitchen and lounge offering stunning views to the 18th fairway and green, all combine with custom bathrooms, a bespoke kitchen, extensive use of travertine and mar-fil tile finishes, and that ‘Je ne sais quoi’ to captivate and excite the most discerning purchaser.
Its versatile living accommodation laid out in pristine order over three levels, ‘Evergreen’ offers great spaces for entertaining complemented by quiet corners for more intimate quality time; equally versatile for a young family’s needs as for the busy professional.
The location is enviable – minutes’ walk from the Dart station, library and shops. The South beach, and the town’s marina harbour are but a stroll away within the curtilage of the restored Killincarrig Manor House, once home to the celebrated Burnaby family from whom
this select part of Greystones takes its name; now the impressive pavilion of the Greystones Golf Club. Voted ‘world’s most liveable’ community back in 2008, this is a great place in which to live, with a choice of local schools, neighbourhood retail outlets, friendly café’s and
restaurants as well as first class leisure amenities, sporting athletic clubs, and a marina from which to sail or fish. Transport is good - interconnectivity via the DART, city bound buses and Aircoach Direct services; as well as easy access to the N11/M11/M50 corridor for commuters.

Just roll your golf bag onto the 10th and tee off at your leisure.
