Welcome to 150 Olive Street, a charming 2+2 bedroom bungalow with a walk-out basement backing onto a wonderful natural landscape, and situated within the historic Holland Landing community of East Gwillimbury.
This home is surrounded by mature deciduous and evergreen trees, and features a brick exterior; a single car garage with driveway parking for up to four vehicles; stone landscaping and perennial gardens in the front yard; an interlocking front patio and covered entry; as well as gated access to the backyard. The backyard overlooks the massive neighbourhood pond, and features an interlocking stone patio off the lower level walk-out; a side deck on the north side of the home that is accessible from the main level and which has bench seats, privacy fencing, as well as a glass railing allowing for clear views of the pond; and a nicely sized south-facing side yard with plenty of gardening space. Adjacent to the property is a public walkway that leads to a walking trail surrounding the pond.
Warm wood finishes can be found throughout the home - including engineered hardwood flooring in the main level principal rooms; wooden laminate flooring in most of the lower level; many of the door, wall, and window trims, baseboards, and some of the interior doors; the lower level staircase handrail and railing; as well as the kitchen cabinetry.
The front foyer area has a coat closet, a storage closet, and access to the garage - while a knee wall separates this space from a cozy sitting area, and from here is the sliding door walk-out to the side deck. To the left of the foyer is an east-facing dining room with bright natural light streaming through an oversized bay window with a window seat, as well as an elegant chandelier providing ambient lighting. The dining area has direct access to the kitchen, which features butcher block-style laminate counters complementing the wood cabinetry; a stainless steel double sink, fridge, and oven with smooth cooktop; as well as wood shutters on the window - and there is also a convenient storage closet/pantry found just off the kitchen.
The remainder of this level features two spacious bedrooms that are carpeted and have views of the pond as well as double closets; and a 4-pc washroom with ceramic-tiled bath area, easy care vinyl flooring, and a wooden vanity with modern basin.
The staircase to the lower level is carpeted, and directly off the landing is a living room with chair rail and the walk-out to the backyard patio. Adjacent to this space is a bright bedroom that is flooded with natural light through its huge above grade window, and which is carpeted for coziness, and additionally features an large double closet with two sets of bi-fold doors. The 4-pc on this level features a ceramic-tiled bath area, easy care vinyl flooring, and a wooden vanity with modern basin - and there is a linen closet right outside its door. Completing this level is a warm and inviting family room with wainscoting, a ceiling fan, as well as a corner gas fireplace with brick surround - and which can also be used as a guest suite with the addition of bedroom, or as a home office - while off this space is a combined storage and laundry room with washer and dryer.
