Welcome to 782 Eastbourne Avenue, a three bedroom brick bungalow situated within the Eastdale neighbourhood of east Oshawa.
Built in 1958 by renown builder Sam Jackson, this home has only been lived in by the original owners, and has a poured concrete foundation (versus a cinder block foundation); the roof was replaced in 2008; and has a new high-efficiency furnace (2016) and updated air conditioning. There is also a detached single car garage with tandem driveway parking for up to four vehicles - and the backyard is nicely sized, has fencing, as well as a mature shade tree and a storage shed.
Although the interior is dated, the home has “good bones”, with great potential for handy-persons who would love the opportunity to convert it into a updated family home - and with plenty of livable space between the main and lower levels, there is also amazing potential as a legal duplex for rental income.
The main level features the original hardwood floors in the living room, the hallway, and all three bedrooms. The living room additionally features a decorative plaster ceiling, crown moldings, and a huge south-facing picture window for natural lighting. The kitchen is bright and spacious, and has two corner windows, room for a cozy breakfast area, as well as access to the driveway and backyard from a side door entry (which can also be the separate entrance for a potential lower level rental unit).
Just off the kitchen is a pantry/storage closet; a 4-pc washroom; and also off this hallway is a linen closet, and the three spacious bedrooms - all which overlook the backyard, and with the first and the third bedrooms featuring double closets.
The spacious lower level features a laundry room with the original concrete laundry tubs; a large storage room/workshop area; a double closet off the staircase landing; a 2-pc washroom; and a large recreation area with seven windows for lots of natural lighting.
This home is within the catchment areas of Vincent Massey Public School, Sir Albert Love Catholic Elementary School, Eastdale Collegiate and Vocational Institute, and Msgr. Paul Dwyer Catholic High School; as well as Walter E. Harris Public School, St. Christopher Catholic Elementary School, R. S. McLaughlin Collegiate and Vocational Institute, and Father Leo J. Austin Catholic Secondary School (Whitby) for their French Immersion programs.
Steps away from Eastbourne Park and public transit, other nearby amenities include community and recreational facilities, places of worship, and a shopping plaza for everyday essentials - while the Harmony Creek Golf Club, the Oshawa Centre Mall, downtown Oshawa, waterfront parks and trails, as well as access to Hwys 401 and the 407 are short drives away.
