Welcome to 211 Florence Avenue, a newly re-built home with a gorgeous waterfront location along the shore of Lake Simcoe within the Atherley community of Ramara Township in Simcoe County.
This home features new exterior doors and windows, eaves troughs, vinyl siding, and roof; has extensive stone landscaping front and back; a single car door drive-thru garage with tandem parking for two vehicles; as well as a huge front deck with railings and a covered entry into the home.
The backyard deck is also equally large, and has privacy fencing on both sides. Stepping down from the deck is a stone patio with fire pit, and extending from this patio is a beach sand play area for children that has a flagstone walkway to the water’s edge. This property has majestic trees for summertime shade, as well as a removable dock for seasonal use, and directly across the road is a forested area that is part of Mara Provincial Park - which has numerous nature trails for outdoor enthusiasts.
Interior details include hardwood and porcelain tiled floors; pot lighting; a hardwood staircase with a handrail on its lower tier, with a hardwood and wrought iron railing on its upper tier; as well as floor-to-ceiling windows on the upper and lower levels that allow for abundant natural lighting, and fantastic views of Lake Simcoe.
Through the front entry door is a spacious reception foyer with two double storage closets that lead into an open concept dining/breakfast room and kitchen. These two combined, yet distinct spaces, feature quartz counters with beautifully tiled back splashes; new appliances; a stainless steel double under mount sink; a breakfast bar in the kitchen; and elegant modern cabinetry with most of the upper doors glass-paneled. A gas fireplace with floor-to-ceiling stacked stone cladding adds warmth in cooler weather, and these rooms overlook the backyard and the lake, and have a sliding door walk-out onto the back deck.
Off the dining area is a room that is well-suited as a living room or den, but can also be used as a fourth bedroom for the home. Down the side hallway is a 3-pc washroom with a quartz-topped furniture-style vanity, and a porcelain-tiled shower area with rain and hand-held shower heads, as well as body jets; and a mudroom with a secondary side door entry into the home. Off this mudroom is a powder room with space-saving vanity; a combined laundry and furnace room (the furnace is also new); under-the-staircase storage; and the staircase to the upper level.
The upper level features three bedrooms, all which are quite spacious. The third bedroom has backyard and lake views; the second bedroom has access to an overhead storage loft; and the master bedroom comes with his-and-hers double closets with organizers, while the closet closest to the window also has an interior light. There is also a 4-pc washroom with a large walk-in shower, and a vanity with marble counter and double under mount basins.
Completing this level is a brightly lit Great Room with a vaulted beamed ceiling; a gas fireplace with stacked stone cladding; and floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall windows for amazing lake views.
This home is within the catchment areas of numerous schools, including Uptergrove and Harriet Todd Public Schools, St. Bernard’s Catholic Elementary School, Twin Lakes Secondary School, and Patrick Fogarty Catholic Secondary School - and both the heart of downtown Orillia for big box shopping, restaurants, and entertainment, as well as the world-renown Casino Rama Resort are just 10 minutes drives away.
