Welcome to 1282 Kettering Drive, a stunning four bedroom home with four washrooms, and situated within Oshawa’s well-established Eastdale neighbourhood.
Located on a family-minded street, this home features a brick exterior; a two car garage; interlocking surrounding the driveway, as well as an interlocking walkway on the west side of the home to one of the two gated entries to the backyard; front hardscape lighting at the garage doors and front steps; a covered front porch; and landscaped front gardens. The fully fenced backyard offers a serene outdoor retreat for personal enjoyment and entertaining, and features a large interlocking patio, a relaxing hot tub, and a lush green lawn.
The front entry door, its sidelights, and its transom are accented with wrought iron inserts - and invite you into a spacious and open concept main level. This level showcases hardwood flooring in the formal living and dining rooms, hallways, and the family room; tiled flooring in the foyer, powder room, laundry room, and kitchen area; contemporary ceiling lighting fixtures and pot lighting (please note - the chandelier in the dining area is excluded from the sale of the home); a hardwood staircase accented white spindles; as well as built-in ceiling speakers in the dining and family rooms.
Off the main hallway is a powder room featuring a contemporary space-saving vanity, and at the end of this side hall is a sunken landing leading into a laundry room with front load washer and dryer, stainless steel sink, cabinetry storage, and access to the garage. The staircase to the lower level is accessed from this landing, as well - and while unfinished, this level does feature a kids’ hockey rink painted on the floor (great for indoor play!), and has wonderful potential for additional recreation and/or storage space.
Off the foyer is a double coat closet, while a wall cut-out with decor column separates it from the formal living and dining rooms. These entertaining spaces are naturally bright, and the dining area has a light diffusing blind for privacy on its window, as well direct access to the kitchen. This beautiful and functional work space showcases quartz countertops and marble tiled back splashes; a centre island with bar seating and a built-in stainless steel microwave; cabinetry with molded uppers, two glass-paneled accent doors, and valance lighting; stainless steel fridge with bottom mount freezer, oven with gas cook top, dishwasher, and double under mount sink; as well as a sliding door walk-out with a transom to the backyard. The adjacent family room is quite spacious, and features a gas fireplace with stacked stone surround and an overheard art niche that is framed by built-in wall cabinets with glass shelving and accent lighting.
Hardwood flooring is featured in the upper level hallway, while all four bedrooms have the cozy comfort of Berber broadloom. The second, third, and fourth bedrooms are naturally bright and quite spacious, have roller blinds on their windows, and come with walk-in closets. The second and third bedrooms share access to a 4-pc Jack-and-Jill washroom, while just of the staircase landing is the main 4-pc washroom, with both washrooms featuring tiled floors and bath areas.
The generously sized master suite has a double door entry, and overlooks the backyard. Featuring two walk-in closets, this beautiful retreat also showcases a spa-like ensuite washroom that has a wall-to-wall vanity with a herringbone-tiled marble back splash and modern vanity lighting; a water closet; a corner tub with herringbone-tiled marble accent edging; and an oversized glass shower.
