2917 Glover Drive, a Georgian Colonial residence located in the prestigious neighborhood of Wesley Heights was renovated from top to bottom, with much thought and attention to every detail.

The second level features four large bedrooms and two decks overlooking the garden. This level also features laundry machines for convenient use. The third level features a sixth bedroom with full bathroom and fireplace. This room can be used as an additional bedroom. The finished, light-filled basement features tall ceilings and a closet space and access to the attached garage. The outdoor area features stone patios, a beautifully landscaped Japanese garden, a bubbling brook and waterfall.
This home has been renovated from top to bottom, with all new plumbing, HVAC, and electrical systems. Energy-efficient upgrades throughout, including full insulation, double-pane windows, dual-zoned heating and cooling controls and a 75-gallon water heater. A full sump pump system was also installed.
