Backing onto a ravine setting within an exclusive enclave of Clarington’s Courtice community, and with exceptional curb appeal, welcome to 98 Auburn Lane.
Showcasing a yellow brick exterior with black accents, as well as extensive landscaping - natural stone steps lead up to an inviting entrance into a ceramic-tiled reception foyer, and a main level that is an entertainer’s delight.
Off the main hall is a formal dining room with hardwood flooring and a French door giving access to the kitchen area, and with an elegant light fixture suspended from its molded tray ceiling.
The ceramic flooring continues into the Great Room’s kitchen and breakfast area, while maple hardwood floors, a custom wall unit with accent lighting, and a picture window with gorgeous backyard views are found in the living room. Warmed by the corner gas fireplace, and with pot lighting brightening both of these open concept entertaining spaces, the kitchen is additionally finished with maple cabinetry with valance lighting; plenty of counter space with two raised breakfast bars; a ceramic-tiled back splash; pendant lighting; and stainless steel appliances.
Through the garden door walk-out is a wooden deck, a hot tub, and an interlocking patio area - all surrounded by perennial gardens and the lush tree line of the ravine that give this outdoor oasis privacy and solitude. The front yard also features a pollinator garden, and this home has been nominated for the Clarington Blooms Award three times in a row.
Additional main level features include pantry storage as well as staircase access to the lower level, both found between the kitchen and dining room; while off the foyer entrance are a large double coat closet and a well-appointed powder room - and throughout the home can be found rounded corners, as well as elegant drapery treatments or blinds on most of the windows.
The carpeted staircase to the upper level is accented with wainscoting, and the upper hallway is also finished with wainscoting, as well as hardwood flooring and contemporary light fixtures. All four bedrooms on this level are carpeted and have large windows - with the second and third bedrooms also featuring double closets. A double linen closet is found right outside the door to the 4-pc main washroom, which has a ceramic-tiled floor and bath area - and completing the common area is the convenience of an upper level laundry room with a ceramic floor, washer and dryer, as well as cabinetry and shelving storage.
Through a double door entry is the generously sized master retreat. Overlooking the backyard and ravine, this private oasis features a walk-in closet; as well as a 5-pc ensuite washroom with ceramic flooring, his-and-her basins in the vanity, a corner tub, and a separate shower area.
The lower level has abundant storage space and is finished with laminate flooring as well as pot lights - and its recreation area is the ideal fun spot for informal entertaining and family enjoyment. With double doors maintaining the privacy of the adjacent personal family spaces, this incredibly sized room features a home theatre area with a projector and a movie screen surrounded by curtains, and still has plenty of space for other fun activities and games.
This home is complete with a double car garage, and a stone interlocking driveway and walkway with snapped granite accents - while a unique design feature of the home is the self-contained bungalow built into the two-storey main household, and having its own interlocking walkway from the driveway to its covered front entrance. Perfect for multi-generational families, the entrance foyer has a ceramic tiled floor with a walk-in storage and coat closet, while the reception area features hardwood flooring and a powder room. The open concept Great Room showcases an eat-in kitchen with ceramic flooring, maple cabinetry, and appliances; and a living room with a hardwood floor, a corner gas fireplace, as well as a vaulted ceiling and a huge window with arched transom enhancing the room’s spaciousness. A garden door walk-out gives access to the backyard deck, and completing this wonderful in-law space is a large bedroom with breathtaking backyard views, a hardwood floor, two double closets, as well as a 4-pc ensuite washroom with ceramic flooring, a corner tub, and a separate shower area.
Between the in-law suite and the main household is a ceramic-tiled mud room which features a stacked washer and dryer exclusive to the bungalow, access to the garage and the main kitchen, as well as a carpeted staircase leading to lower level spaces designed for personal family use. This section is carpeted throughout, and features a bonus room ideal as a private home office or hobby room; a 3-pc washroom with ceramic flooring; as well as a spacious bedroom.
