Welcome to 385 Park Road North, a spacious brick bungalow backing onto a golf course within the McLaughlin neighbourhood of Oshawa.
Built in 1986, and showing pride of original ownership, this home enjoys a premium, central location close to numerous prime amenities. Surrounded by mature trees and beautifully landscaped front and back, other exterior features include a one-and-a-half car garage with driveway parking for up to five vehicles; an interlocking front walkway and patio; concrete steps and tiered garden beds that lead down to a fenced backyard overlooking the Oshawa Golf and Curling Club’s golf course; as well as a concrete patio area also accessible from a lower level sunroom.
The interior living spaces are graciously sized, and many of the rooms have warm wood finishes, such as trims, baseboards, or wood interior doors. The turret shaping of the foyer allows abundant natural light to stream through its five windows, and off the foyer area is a curved staircase with an oak railing to the lower level; a linen closet, a coat closet, and an additional clothing storage closet - all with double bi-fold doors; as well as access to the garage.
The main level has a wonderful ease of flow from room to room. The cozy living room enjoys both front, back, and side yard views through its three windows - and leads into a spacious breakfast area that provides access to a lovely sunroom. A later addition to the original home, this space features the the brick exterior as an accent wall, and has gorgeous views of the lush seasonal greenery.
The family-sized kitchen overlooks the golf course, and showcases oak cabinetry; ample counter work space; includes appliances; and a peninsula provides a separation between it and the breakfast area. Off the kitchen area is the laundry room, which includes the washer and dryer, and also has cabinetry as well as closet storage.
The main level is complete with a 4-pc washroom; as well as a spacious master bedroom with a ceiling fan, a large double closet, and a beautiful outdoor view.
The lower level is carpeted throughout, and features a bonus room off the landing easily converted into a bedroom; space for a home office by the staircase wall; and down a short hallway beyond the furnace room are a set of steps to a sunken storage area or hobby room that gives access to an insulated and heated workshop with a rear door entry to the backyard.
Off the hallway to the family recreation room is a wet bar which can be transformed into a kitchenette, while the family room itself is incredibly spacious, and has a sliding door opening to another later addition to the home - a second sunroom with brick accent walls, two skylights, and exceptional views of the golf course.
Just off the family recreation area, and completing this level, is a 3-pc washroom with a glass shower; as well as a bedroom with a double closet, and a bay window with golf course views.
This home is within the catchment areas of Woodcrest Public School and Msgr. Paul Dwyer Catholic High School; as well as Walter E. Harris Public School, St. Christopher Catholic Elementary School, R. H. McLaughlin Collegiate and Vocational Institute, and Father Leo J. Austin Catholic Secondary School (Whitby) for their French Immersion programs.
Backing onto the Oshawa Golf and Curling Club, this home is steps to a convenience store; is walking distance to public transit; and is close to the Oshawa Valley Botanical Gardens, community and recreational facilities, the Oshawa Centre Mall, and downtown Oshawa for restaurants and entertainment - while access to Hwys 401 and the 407, Oshawa’s waterfront, and conservation areas are all just short drives away.
