Situated within the prestigious Buckingham Estates enclave of Pickering, welcome to 2297 Canterbury Crescent.
A beautifully maintained four bedroom home with a stone and stucco exterior, the covered front porch and its visually appealing double front entryway invites you into an incredibly spacious open concept main level flooded with natural light.
The ceramic tiled foyer leads into a main level showcasing gleaming oak hardwood floors in the reception hall and the principal entertaining spaces, which begin with a formal dining room and its adjacent formal living room - both graced with columned entryways. Highlighting the dining area is an octagonal-shaped tray ceiling with an elegant chandelier and pot lighting - while a vaulted Cathedral ceiling and a two-storey window with arched transom in the living room enhances the grandeur of these beautifully combined spaces.
A huge walk-in coat closet, as well as oak hardwood staircases with hardwood and wrought iron railings to the upper and lower levels, are found off the main hall as it takes you to the informal family spaces.
Exceptionally sized, the family room offers plenty of space for casual gatherings or personal enjoyment, with a gas fireplace spreading cozy warmth throughout the room - and is open to the adjacent kitchen and breakfast area.
A great work and family space finished with a ceramic tiled floor, the custom kitchen features a peninsula with stainless steel double sink and breakfast seating; granite countertops and a tumbled marble backsplash; abundant cabinetry with upgraded hardware and a huge pantry area; as well as stainless steel appliances - and there is also a butler's servery between the kitchen and the formal dining room - a wonderful convenience while entertaining.
From the breakfast area is a walk-out onto a deck which steps down to a fenced-in yard backing onto the lush greenery of the neighbourhood ravine. Its east-facing bow window brings beautiful natural light into the kitchen area, and this window - as well as all the other windows in the main level principal rooms - are complete with roman shades or light-diffusing blinds.
Off the hallway landing to the lower level is a powder room with pedestal sink; and a large laundry room with stainless steel front load washer and dryer, additional closet storage, as well as access to the two car garage. The lower level itself is unfinished, with an abundance of space awaiting transformation to suit personal or family needs.
The upper level is finished with broadloom throughout, and features four generously sized bedrooms, three washrooms, and a large linen closet.
The fourth bedroom features a large window with arched transom, as well as a double closet. Its 4-pc ensuite washroom also makes this room ideal as a guest suite. The second and third bedrooms both have ample closet space, and share access to a 3-pc washroom with an oversized shower area.
Complementing the ambient brightness of a contemporary chandelier above the staircase, is a skylight that allows abundant natural light to flood the upper hallway.
The master suite is graciously sized, and showcases a double door entry, a tray ceiling, as well as his-and-her walk-in closets. The spa-like 5-pc ensuite washroom is complete with his and her basins in the vanity, a soaker tub, a shower area with glass door, and ceramic tiles throughout.
Within this prestigious enclave is St. Wilfrid Catholic School as well as beautiful Southcott Park - and this gorgeous executive home is just a short drive to Riverside Golf Course, conservation areas, shopping and entertainment, as well as access to Hwys 401 and the 407.
