Well situated within south Pickering’s West Shore community, welcome to 947 Oklahoma Drive.
Showcasing prize-winning perennial gardens front and back, this 3+2 bedroom bungalow features five car driveway parking with a carport, and beautifully maintained interior living spaces.
The ceramic-tiled entrance foyer leads into open concept living and dining rooms bathed in soft, natural light - and broadloom adds a warm, cozy touch to these elegant entertaining spaces.
The foyer also opens into the combined kitchen and breakfast areas. Both a functional work space and an ideal gathering spot for friends and family, this room features laminate flooring; a ceramic-tiled back splash; appliances; as well as plenty of cabinetry and pantry storage, with a built-in chef’s desk that is also ideal for after school homework.
Pot lighting, a contemporary light fixture, and natural light through two large windows brightens the kitchen area - while the ambient lighting of an elegant chandelier complements the natural brightness streaming through the bow window in the formal entertaining spaces.
The carpeted hallway leads to the main washroom and the three bedrooms - one of which is an ideal small child’s room with a ceiling that lights up at night with hundreds of stars and galaxies.
The master bedroom has a gorgeous modern ceiling light fixture, and both it and the second bedroom have large double closets and overlook the backyard gardens. The 4-pc washroom features warm wood finishes including its vanity, wainscoting, and a built-in storage shelf - and just down the hallway is the convenience of a large linen closet.
With a spacious cloakroom and its own separate entrance, the lower level not only offers additional living space, but is also ideal as an in-law suite. This level has a large storage and laundry room with washer and dryer, as well as access to a separate workshop space - and the home features a newer furnace, tankless water heater, and a Northstar water softener.
The in-law suite has both carpeted and ceramic-tiled floors, and features two generously sized bedrooms; a spacious living room; an eat-in kitchen with fridge and stove; as well as a 4-pc washroom - with above grade windows throughout.
Within walking distance to this wonderful home are Fairport Beach and Frenchman’s Bay Public Schools, Father Fenelon Catholic Elementary School, public transit, and places of worship. The Steeple Hill Shopping Centre and other plazas are close at hand, with the West Shore Community Centre, Petticoat Creek Conservation Area, and access to Hwy 401 just short drives away.
The backyard is accessible from the driveway and the side entrance, and features a concrete patio with a pergola, throughout which a mauve wisteria tree has intertwined itself, and is a showpiece of award-winning perennial gardens. Perfect for an active lifestyle, Frenchman’s Bay Yacht Club and the Pickering Rouge Canoe Club are nearby - and residents can stroll down a wooded trail to West Shore Beach in adjacent Rotary Frenchman’s Bay West Park, where some of the best surfing and kite boarding in Durham Region can be enjoyed.
