Welcome to 280 Douglas Road, a beautiful four bedroom home with waterfront access to Lake Wilcox, and situated within a prestigious enclave of the Oak Ridges neighbourhood of Richmond Hill.
Located on a corner lot, this home features a brick exterior with siding; two car exterior parking; landscaped perennial gardens and majestic trees; a covered front entrance, its entry door showcasing a decorative glass insert and sidelight; as well as a fenced backyard that offers plenty of outdoor entertaining space with a tiered deck complete with built-in seating.
Just steps away from Lake Wilcox, this home has deeded laneway access and also comes with a raft, for year round waterfront enjoyment.
The main level opens with a slate-tiled foyer with a coat closet, and just off the foyer is a powder room showcasing a custom vanity finished with a slate-tiled front facade, stone countertop, a glass bowl basin, and a stacked stone back splash.
Cork flooring is found throughout the main level, as well as large windows that bring an abundance of natural light into all the principal spaces - all which have beautiful window treatments and/or privacy shades. Pot lighting brings additional brightness to the living room, which is bathed with bright light through a south-facing bay window that allows for wonderful front yard views. Pot lighting is also found in the kitchen, and elegantly designed main work space showcases granite countertops with a stainless steel double under mount sink, stacked stone back splashes, gorgeous cabinetry, and appliances that include a built-in dishwasher, as well as stainless steel fridge, stove, and microwave range hood. Separate from the main work space is an island peninsula with breakfast seating, as well as a granite-topped servery/bar area. The adjacent dining room is equally elegant and incredibly spacious - and features a beamed ceiling, as well as a sliding door walk-out to the deck and backyard. The gas fireplace is glass-enclosed on two sides, allowing its cozy warmth to spread throughout these exceptional entertaining spaces.
The upper level is finished with Berber broadloom throughout, and features a linen closet, two washrooms, and four bedrooms. Pot lighting brightens the hallway, and also throughout this level are large or oversized windows that fill each bedroom with natural light - and all come with privacy shades.
The main 4-pc washroom features papered walls with a striking design, a corner vanity, a tiled floor and bath area, as well as a relaxing Jacuzzi tub. The secondary bedrooms are all quite spacious - with the second bedroom featuring a slanted ceiling and a closet with an interior light; the third bedroom has a huge south-facing window and is finished with crown moldings; and the fourth bedroom also features crown moldings, as well as a double closet with an interior light.
The master bedroom is bright, beautiful, and its vaulted beamed ceiling enhances the openness of this personal retreat. Overlooking the backyard and Lake Wilcox, sliding doors with a Juliet balcony, as well as a ceiling fan, allow for fresh air circulation and summertime breezes, enhancing the airyness of the room. Completing the master bedroom is a large walk-thru closet, which gives access to a 3-pc ensuite finished with a cork floor, a ceramic tiled shower area, a modern vanity, as well as stone-tiled accents.
From the main level dining area are steps with hardwood treads and a Berber carpet runner to a slate-tiled landing, off of which is a separate entrance to the lower level. Another set of stairs are finished with slate-tiled risers, and these take you to the lower level and a spacious recreation area finished with laminate flooring, pot lighting, and oversized above-grade windows. Off the recreation space is a powder room, and completing the lower level is a separate storage/workshop room with a laundry area.
