Situated on a premium-sized lot within the Colborne community of Cramahe Township in Northumberland County, welcome to 43 Elgin Street North.
A charming 2+1 bedroom brick bungalow, this home features two separate driveways and ample exterior parking to complement the single car garage - while a concrete walkway lined with perennial garden beds leads to its covered front entry door with sidelights, and which opens into a spacious ceramic-tiled foyer and reception hall with a double coat closet.
Oversized windows allow for gorgeous outdoor views and abundant natural lighting in a living room warmed by a gas fireplace with stone facing. Hardwood floors that are original to the home have been re-stained and sealed to enhance the warm feel of the space, as well as accentuating the elegance of the adjacent formal dining room.
Off these generously sized entertaining spaces is the kitchen, which has access via a breezeway to the front and back yards, as well as the garage. This work space can accommodate a cozy breakfast area, and features ample cabinetry storage with a wall pantry; a mosaic-tiled back splash; a large window above the double sink for backyard views; as well as a side-by-side fridge/freezer, oven with smooth cooktop, and a dishwasher.
Through a double French door entry off the dining area is the sunroom, which has a sliding door walk-out onto a large deck stepping down to the backyard. An immensely sized green space, the backyard is dotted with mature trees, and has been landscaped with stone and perennial gardens, a huge interlocking and river rock patio area; as well as a tiered flagstone walkway from the secondary driveway. A perfect indoor spot from which to enjoy the outdoor views, and as a later addition to the original home, the exterior brick has been incorporated as accent walls and lends a rustic feel to the sunroom.
The two main level bedrooms are quite spacious, and the master bedroom features cozy carpeting, his-and-her double closets, and a 2-pc ensuite washroom. The second bedroom has laminate flooring, a ceiling fan, as well as a double closet - and is adjacent to the main 4-pc washroom, which features headboard, a linen and toiletry closet, a furniture-style vanity with glass vessel basin, and a uniquely finished floor of Canadian pennies.
To the lower level is a hardwood staircase and handrail, and off the landing is a storage room; a spacious bedroom with an oversized above-grade window; as well as a 4-pc washroom. This level’s recreation area offers potential for family or artistic use - and features a wood-burning fireplace with stone facing, a sink with tiled back splash, access to a laundry area, as well as a separate entry from the backyard.
Situated on a quiet street in a historic rural community, this home is close to an elementary school, places of worship, a public library, as well as the numerous shops and services offered within the heart of Colborne - while just a short five minute drive away is the town’s iconic landmark, the Big Apple bakery, restaurant and theme park; as well as access to Hwy 401.
