Welcome to 3625 Tooley Road, a beautifully maintained 4+1 bedroom executive home situated on an estate-sized lot in a rural-like setting of Clarington’s Courtice community.
At 1.68 acres in size, the property backs onto conservation lands with a creek running through it, while the extensive front and back lawns are well kept and dotted with mature trees. Exuding wonderful cub appeal, the front yard features beautiful stone and perennial landscaping, as well as a charming and partially covered interlocking front patio with brick accent columns and outdoor pot lighting. The home has a ground level brick exterior with an upper level finished with siding, while complementing the two car garage is plenty of driveway parking - and the back yard is complete with a large deck for warm weather entertaining and year-round barbecuing, as well as a storage shed at the rear of the property.
Warm wood finishes can be found throughout most of the home - which include room entry and closet doors; door and window trims; chair rail; most of the baseboards; the upper level staircase railings and trim; as well as the hardwood flooring on the main level. The main level also features crown molding in most of the rooms; accent pot lighting in the living and dining areas, as well as the kitchen; and there are beautiful contemporary ceiling light fixtures throughout the home. Another superb feature of the home is its multitude of large windows with east- and west-facing exposures that allow for abundant natural lighting on the main and upper levels.
The spacious ceramic-tiled front foyer is open to above, has a double coat closet, access to the lower level, and French door entries into the family room and formal dining area. To the right of the foyer is a formal living room that overlooks the front yard and its greenery - and adjacent to it is the family room, which also has two south-facing windows, in addition to its east-facing picture window with backyard views. Bringing cozy warm to this bright, open space is gas fireplace with a floor-to-ceiling brick facade.
The kitchen and its breakfast area are finished with high-quality (and extremely durable) vinyl-tiled floors, which continue into the adjacent laundry and powder rooms. The breakfast area has a sliding door walk-out on to the back deck, while this open concept work and family space is complete with a functional and updated kitchen showcasing quartz counters; a tiled back splash; cabinetry with valance lighting, molded uppers, as well as pantry and servery areas; and stainless steel double under mount sink and appliances. Convenient for entertaining, the formal dining room is accessible off the kitchen through a French door entry, and this room enjoys views of the beautiful front perennial gardens.
The combined laundry and mud room features a washer and dryer, a back door entry onto the deck, coat and storage closets, as well as access to the garage - while a powder room nestled beyond the laundry area for privacy features an oak vanity.
The curved upper level staircase and hallway are both carpeted for coziness and comfort, and this level features a hallway line closet, an elegant chandelier above the staircase, four very generously sized bedrooms, and two washrooms. All the bedrooms are finished with quality dark laminate flooring - and the fourth bedroom features ample closet space, while the second and third bedrooms have two separate clothing closets each. These bedrooms share a 4-pc main washroom which features a ceramic-tiled floor, an oak vanity with ceramic back splash, and a bath area with sliding glass shower doors.
The master bedroom showcases an almost full wall of closet space with separate his-and-her access doors, and enjoys beautiful views of the backyard and the forested conservation lands. This retreat also showcases a 3-pc ensuite washroom with a ceramic-tiled floor, an oak vanity surrounded by stone-tiled accents walls, and a shower area with glass door.
A carpeted staircase leads to the lower level which showcases two distinct living spaces, and is well-suited for extended families. The first is the home’s main family recreation space - which is carpeted, is brightly lit, and has access to storage and clothing closets, as well as a cold room/fruit cellar. The other lower level space is accessible from the main recreation area, as well via a staircase from the garage, and this section of the lower level is well-suited as an in-law suite. Off the ceramic-tiled hallway is a large storage room combined with a laundry room - and the ceramic flooring continues into a spacious kitchen with ample cabinetry storage, a stainless steel sink, a walk-in pantry/storage area, as well as fridge and stove. The 3-pc washroom features a ceramic floor and a shower area with glass door - and this wonderful living space is complete with a combined family and dining room warmed by a gas stove with a tiled hearth and brick accent wall; as well as a large carpeted bedroom with a double closet.
This home also includes all existing window treatments and blinds, all existing kitchen appliances, two sets of washers and dryers, as well as the fridge and chest freezer in the lower level.
This home is within the catchment areas of S. T. Wooden Public School, Monsignor Leo Cleary Catholic Elementary School, and Holy Trinity Catholic Secondary School; as well as Dr. G. J. McGillvary Public School, Good Shepherd Catholic Elementary School, Courtice Intermediate School, Courtice High School, and St. Stephen Catholic Secondary School for their French Immersion programs.
Many other amenities are just a short drive away - including a public library, a major shopping plaza, the Courtice Flea Market, places of worship, and the Pebblestone Golf Course, as well as access to Hwys 401 and the 407.
