Welcome to 75 Shawano Drive, a gorgeous four bedroom custom-built home and sprawling waterfront property located within the charming hamlet of Grafton, in Northumberland County.
Situated within the Nawautin Enclave, on approximately 1.2 acres, this property has (approx.) 143’ of waterfront, 183’ of frontage, and is 393’ deep. Tree-lined, and extremely private, the property is located next to the Nawautin Nature Sanctuary, at the end a cul-de-sac. Other exterior features include a two car garage and a circular driveway; huge front and back yards; an upper balcony as well as a ground level covered deck - both south-facing and overlooking Lake Ontario; as well as a covered front porch.
Through the main entrance are ground level living and personal spaces, with hardwood floors and pot lighting in most of the rooms. Directly off the foyer is a family room with a walk-out onto the covered back deck - and off the family room is a walk-in storage closet, as well as the staircase to the upper level. To the left of the foyer is a side hallway, off of which is a coat closet; the mechanical room; a 3-pc washroom with ceramic-tiled floor and glass shower; a laundry room with front load washer and dryer, tiled floor, coat closet, and access to the garage; as well as a French door entry into a bonus room with a closet and garden door walk-out to the back deck, and which is well-suited as a bedroom, home office, or den.
Past the main staircase are three personal spaces - including a 4-pc washroom with marble-tiled floor and bath area, as well as a marble-topped vanity; and two spacious bedrooms, both with large double closets that are accessed through two sets of bi-fold doors each. The second of these bedrooms also has its own private walk-out onto the back deck.
The upper level showcases a stunning open concept Great Room with fantastic waterfront views, as well as a gorgeous master suite that overlooks an outdoor setting of serenity.
Throughout this level are hardwood floors and pot lighting, and the Great Room features vaulted shiplap ceilings in the living room and the kitchen/dining area. The living room also has the addition of a ceiling fan, while a gas fireplace with stone cladding and a driftwood-style mantle adds warmth to the room. Above its garden door walk-out is an arched transom, and the rest of the windows on this level also have transoms. The kitchen and dining areas showcase contemporary ceiling lighting and wood ceiling beams designed for functionally as well as beauty. This space also features a centre island with breakfast seating and a stainless steel built-in oven with gas cook top; granite counters and a ceramic back splash; cabinetry with molded uppers and a built-in chef’s desk; stainless steel dishwasher, microwave, fridge, and bar fridge; as well as a farmhouse-style sink with a complementary vegetable sink. Off the dining area are two walk-outs - garden doors onto the upper balcony (which stretches the length of the home); as well as sliding doors opening to a screened-in gazebo with ceiling fan and wood panelled walls, which offers a mostly insect-free outdoor relaxation and entertaining space, and which is also directly accessible from the balcony.
Off the kitchen is a storage closet, as well as a powder room with a granite-topped vanity, and completing this level is the master suite.
This personal space features a vaulted ceiling with a wood accent beam and a ceiling fan; a south-facing garden door walk-out onto the balcony for waterfront views and enjoyment; and a wall of west-facing windows that overlook the breathtaking serenity of the lush greenery. There are two walk-in closets (his and hers!), and the master bedroom has the added personal oasis of a 4-pc ensuite with an oversized glass shower with steam shower and bench seat; a jetted tub with tile surround; and a granite-topped vanity.
Other features of the home include a Weber barbecue (as is); Roman blinds on many of the windows; security laminates on all the ground level windows; in-floor (ground) heating system; high efficiency tankless heater system; power surge protection at the electric panel in the garage; as well as a security system with flood and low temperature sensors.
This home is close to both a public and a Catholic elementary school, a community centre, an arena, and the urban heart of Grafton for everyday shopping and amenities; is just a short drive to Ste. Anne’s Inn & Spa, the Barnum House Creek Conservation Area and Museum, as well as for access to Hwy 401. Grafton itself is located between the larger urban centres of Cobourg and Colbourne - and within 15 minutes is access to amenities such as big box shopping, entertainment, restaurants, as well as medical and professional services.
