An incredibly spacious 4+1 bedroom home within the highly desirable Pickering Village neighbourhood of Ajax, welcome to 18 Bowles Drive.
This semi-detached brick back split has no sidewalk on its side of the street, offering three car driveway parking in addition to the single car garage. Mature perennials add a touch of privacy to the covered front porch, and through the front entrance is a spacious ceramic-tiled foyer with garage access, a powder room, and carpeted staircases to the main and lower levels.
The main level showcases two distinct open concept principal spaces, and immediately off the landing are the combined formal living and dining rooms. Finished with laminate flooring, a contemporary chandelier with medallion ambiently brightens the dining area, while California shutters on the windows offer privacy and light control for these entertaining spaces.
The kitchen and its breakfast area have a crisp, light-coloured palette that enhances the natural brightness of this work and family space. Finished with a ceramic-tiled floor and back splash, the kitchen also features a white double sink and appliances, with a stainless steel microwave range hood; abundant cabinetry and pantry storage; as well as plenty of counter space with breakfast seating. The sliding door walk-out opens onto a two-tiered deck with storage space below, and the fenced-in backyard has a garden shed as well as plenty of play and gardening space.
The main level is complete with a large laundry room with washer, dryer, and cabinetry storage - while the home itself has been freshly painted throughout, and also features a new roof as well as a new skylight above the upper level hallway.
Through a double door entry off the upper staircase landing is the master suite. Generously sized, and with a wall of east-facing windows, this bright and beautiful personal space features a sunken sitting area with laminate flooring; a walk-in closet; and a carpeted bedroom area with a ceiling fan for fresh air circulation. The ensuite washroom is a striking mix white, grey, and black shades throughout - and showcases a corner step-up tub; a glass shower; a vanity with make-up area, and ceramic tiles.
Naturally brightened with its new skylight, the upper level features three spacious bedrooms, all which have cozy carpeting; a linen closet; and a 5-pc main washroom with a ceramic-tiled floor and bath area, as well as double basins in the vanity.
This home has an unfinished basement level ideal for storage, and also has a finished lower level family recreation area with potential as an in-law suite. Carpeted throughout, and featuring a large walk-in storage closet that could be converted into a 3-pc washroom, as well as a bonus room suitable as a bedroom, this level has a spacious family room with pot lighting, above grade windows, and a cozy corner gas fireplace
Within walking distance to public and Catholic schools, parks, and the nature trails along Duffins Creek - as well as being close to Riverside Golf Course - this home is also just a short drive to Pickering Town Centre and the Durham Centre Shopping Plaza, the GO Station, the Greenwood Conservation Area, and for access to Hwy 401.
