Welcome to 4 Highfield Crescent, an executive bungalow and wonderful family home situated on a premium-sized corner lot, in a prestigious enclave of Georgina’s North Keswick community.
This four bedroom brick home features a two car garage with driveway parking for up to six vehicles; as well as huge front and back yards with majestic, mature trees. Lined with perennial gardens, the interlocking front walkway leads to stone steps and a double door front entrance with sidelights. The pool-sized backyard is fully fenced and lined with hedges, and has gated access from both sides of the home - and also features a vegetable garden; a large deck accessible from three separate walk-outs; a storage shed; and a patio area ideal for a fire pit.
The stone tiled front foyer has built-in wood planters, as well as a vaulted ceiling with two skylights, a ceiling fan, and pot lighting - and a few steps up from the entrance is a mirrored door double coat closet, and a powder room with ceramic-tiled floor and walls.
To the left is a double French door entry into the formal living and dining rooms. Finished with hardwood floors, both of these elegant entertaining spaces feature crown moldings and oversized picture windows with front yard views - and from the living room are steps up to the dining area, while a columned entry and hardwood railings maintain the open concept design of these spaces.
A few steps up from the foyer is the family room, a spacious casual entertaining space with hardwood floors, wainscoting, a walk-out onto the back deck, a wet bar, as well as a vaulted Cathedral ceiling with fan - and the showpiece in this space is its gas fireplace with floor-to ceiling brick facade.
The kitchen is directly accessible from the family room, as well as through a French door entry from the dining room - and this incredibly spacious work area features beautiful oak cabinetry with an abundance of storage and pantry space, molded uppers, and under mount lighting; a built-in chef’s desk; counter space with a double sink and raised breakfast bar; as well as a ceramic back splash. Its adjacent breakfast area has laminate flooring, multiple windows, and a walk-out onto the back deck.
Off the kitchen is a ceramic-tiled hallway, off of which are two separate coat closets; access to the garage; and access to the lower level. There is also a laundry room with washer and dryer, a ceramic back splash, cabinetry storage, and a secondary side door entrance; as well as a cozy bedroom with broadloom, and a second powder room.
Hardwood floors flow throughout the bedroom hallway (a door keeps this hall private from the main household), as well as into the master bedroom - and off this hallway is a large linen closet and two spacious family bedrooms, both with laminate flooring and double closets. The main washroom features a ceramic-tiled floor, bath area, and glass shower area; a toilet and bidet; a linen/toiletry closet with mirrored bi-fold doors; and a jetted tub. The master bedroom is very generous in its size, and features a walk-in closet with mirrored sliding doors; a walk-out to the back deck; as well as an ensuite washroom with a ceramic-tiled floor, toilet and bidet, an accessible step-in bath/shower tub, and a step up bath area with jetted tub and ceramic surround.
An open tread hardwood staircase leads to the lower level, and a ceramic-tiled landing - off of which is a spacious private home office; a bonus room with laminate flooring, and ideal as a second office or hobby room; a secondary access with stairs leading up to the garage; as well as a large room that has been roughed-in for a second kitchen, and which gives access to a new 3-pc washroom with pot lighting and a glass shower area. Completing the lower level is a massive recreation area with pot lighting, laminate flooring, and a brick facade that can accommodate either a gas or wood-burning stove. This space also features above-grade windows and access to a separate (and huge!) storage area with a cold room - and the home also features 200 amp electrical service with two separate junction boxes, one which is ready for the future possibility of an in-ground pool and cabana.
This home is within the catchment areas of Lakeside Public School, Keswick High School, and Our Lady of the Lake Catholic College School; as well as Keswick Public School, St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Elementary School, and Newmarket High School for their French Immersion programs.
Other nearby amenities include the Orchard Beach Golf and Country Club, the Keswick North Conservation Area, the Georgina Garden Centre, places of worship, as well as numerous local shops and services along Metro Road and The Queensway - while big box shopping in Keswick, the Georgina Ice Palace, the ROC, and access to Hwy 404 are all just short drives away.
