Welcome to 1126 Peniel Road, a charming and updated century home situated on approximately 2.25 acres of land within the rural Woodville community of Kawartha Lakes.
This property boasts a bucolic-like setting. Farm fields and rolling pastures surround it, while a creek runs along part of the property. There is a large swath of well maintained lawn space (great for outdoor playtime and definitely a gardener’s dream!) and a fire pit, while on the east side of the home can be found some fruit and shade trees. There is a two car garage/workshop; additional outdoor storage sheds; there is a drilled well that serves the house and there are two dug wells that serve the outdoors - one that is connected to a hand pump; a concrete patio bridging the gap between the garage and the home; as well as a deck that wraps around from the main side door entry, to the walk-out from the kitchen. Originally a brick home built circa the late 1860s, the exterior has been covered with wood siding that has insulation between the wood and the brick - and the home sports a metal roof.
While many of the interior characteristic features can be seen throughout, there are also numerous updates. Some of the characteristic design features include the deep baseboards; door and window trims; interior window ledges; and the original hardwood flooring in the master bedroom, as well as the wood flooring throughout the upper level. More modern updates through the years have included panelled walls; electrical and plumbing; hard wiring for a security system; and ceiling fans.
The main level foyer has a large mirrored door coat closet and vinyl flooring, and to the right (upon entry) is the family sized eat-in kitchen. This work and family space features wood wainscoting, door and window trims, baseboards, and crown moldings; laminate flooring; extensive wood cabinetry with more than abundant storage space; as well as fridge, dishwasher, and a built-in cooktop and wall oven.
The living room is also finished with laminate floors, and from here is access to the main washroom. An addition to this level, the washroom features a granite-topped furniture-style vanity with under mount basin and a corner glass shower, and is also a semi-ensuite for the master bedroom. This bedroom has views of the front and side yards, and off its main entry is the staircase to the upper level, and entry into a sunroom. Also a later addition to the home, the sunroom has carpeting for cozy comfort, three walls of windows for spectacular views and natural light, as well as a walk-out to the front yard.
At the top of the upper level staircase is a closet for linen and toiletry storage; four bedrooms; and a washroom - all reflective of the design of the time. One of these bedrooms is currently used as storage, while the other three bedrooms have built-in storage/closet armoires. The 3-pc washroom has a space saving vanity, and a freestanding tub.
This home also has an unfinished basement that has a regular ceiling height and a laundry area.
This home is within the catchment areas of Mariposa Elementary School, Lindsay Collegiate and Vocational Institute, and St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic High School; as well as Leslie Frost Public School, St. Dominic Catholic Elementary School, I. E. Weldon Secondary School, and St. Peter Catholic Secondary School for their French Immersion programs.
This home is minutes to the hearts of Woodville and Oakwood for everyday shopping and essentials, while the larger urban centre of Lindsay is just a short 15 minute drive away for recreational and community facilities, a hospital, big box shopping, as well as restaurants and entertainment.
