Welcome to 1470 Aldergrove Drive, a four bedroom, five washroom executive home situated on a premium-sized lot within the Taunton community of North Oshawa.
This home showcases extensive stonework and landscaping front and back; a covered front porch with a spacious sitting area; double front entry doors with a transom, their glass panels accented with wrought iron inserts; as well as a stunning backyard oasis professionally designed with entertaining and family enjoyment in mind.
An inviting entrance foyer with Cathedral ceiling is open to above, where a chandelier as well as a second storey window brighten both the foyer and the upper level hallway.
To the left are the sophisticated entertaining spaces of the formal living and dining rooms. Open to each other, decor columns as well as an octagonal-shaped tray ceiling with an elegant chandelier define the dining area’s distinctive space, and both of these rooms are finished with beautiful engineered hardwood flooring - which flows throughout the hallway and the rest of the main level’s principal rooms.
The main hallway has beautifully trimmed tone-on-tone walls as well as pot lighting, while as an elegant contrast to the neutral colour palette of this level - all the room entry doors are dark in colour - including a pocket door entry into the home office and den space. This semi-private room also has two sets of French doors into the adjacent family room, with which it shares a double-sided gas fireplace.
Natural light streaming through its multiple windows gives the family room a bright, airy feel - and surrounded by floor-to-ceiling stacked stone cladding - the fireplace brings cozy warmth during the cool weather months.
The family room opens to the kitchen and its breakfast area - and this superb work, family and entertaining space showcases custom cabinetry; a centre island and a servery; pot lighting and contemporary ceiling light fixtures; granite counters and tiled back splashes; as well as a stainless steel double sink and high-end appliances - while for entertaining convenience, is direct access to the formal dining room.
An oversized sliding door walk-out from the breakfast area opens to the spectacular and fully fenced backyard retreat. Showcasing a patio area with an outdoor kitchen, a large deck, a storage shed, as well as a manicured lawn and extensive landscaping - an interlocking walkway takes you to an in-ground pool surrounded by lush gardens, mature trees and shrubs. Complete with a cabana, plenty of relaxation space around the deck area, as well as tons of outdoor entertaining and personal enjoyment space - this backyard makes cottage getaways and vacations a thing of the past.
To the upper level is a curved staircase with the classic finish of dark treads and rails with white risers and spindles - and this level features hardwood flooring and pot lighting in the hallway; three washrooms, and four bedrooms - all which are finished with the cozy comfort of broadloom.
The second bedroom features a chandelier and a double closet - and shares a 4-pc Jack-and-Jill washroom with the very spacious third bedroom - which also features a double closet, as well as a papered accent wall and a raised ceiling above its window and transom. The fourth bedroom is an ideal guest suite or second master bedroom, and features a walk-in closet, as well as its own 4-pc washroom.
Dark-coloured double entry doors open into the master bedroom, a generously sized personal retreat with tone-on-tone trimmed walls; a spacious sitting area; and abundant natural lighting. Both its walk-in closet and its ensuite washroom have dark-coloured entry doors - and the washroom additionally features a glass shower; separate vanities, one complete with a make-up area; a corner tub; and ceramic finishes throughout.
Off the main level hallway is a ceramic-tiled mud room combined with a sunken laundry area that has a side door entry and access to the double car garage; a beautifully appointed powder room; as well as the entry to the finished lower level. Ideal for casual entertaining, and perfect man-cave space, the lower level features a bar area with a fireplace surrounded by a stone-style facade; a large room complete with a sauna that offers great space for an exercise area; a 3-pc washroom with heated travertine floors and a tumbled marble-tiled shower area; as well as an open concept recreation area encompassing a games and media room - both with pot lighting - and each separated by a half wall with stone-style cladding and wood ledges to differentiate their distinct spaces.
Walking distance to both a public and a Catholic elementary school, Coldstream Park, and public transit - this exceptional family home is also close to the SmartCentres North Oshawa shopping plazas and the Legends Centre - while golf courses, conservation areas, Durham College and the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, as well as access to Hwys 401 and the 407, are just short drives away.
