Welcome to 25 Forestry Drive, a 3+2 bedroom bungalow situated on a premium-sized lot within a family-minded neighbourhood of Pefferlaw, Georgina.
Featuring exceptional frontage and a large backyard, the property is surrounded by trees, and also enjoys the natural beauty of the York Regional Forest right across the street. The attached double car garage is complemented with a driveway that can accommodate parking for up to 12 vehicles, and the large front concrete patio is lined with garden beds. The log siding and stacked stone lower facade of this home’s exterior blends with the natural surroundings, and in the backyard is an outdoor storage shed featuring the same log siding. The backyard is fully fenced, and is a wonderful outdoor personal and entertaining oasis during the warm weather months. From the kitchen’s sliding door walk-out is a raised deck with railings and a pergola, which steps down to a concrete patio area. From here are stone steps to an in-ground pool surrounded by a concrete deck and stones, and the remainder of the yard provides plenty of play and/or gardening space.
This home has been beautifully renovated, and showcases gorgeous finishes and details. The main level has an open concept design and features heated travertine-tiled floors from the front entrance foyer, through the main hallway, and into the kitchen and breakfast areas. Engineered hardwood floors are found in the three bedrooms and in the living room, and pot lighting complements the natural brightness of the principal rooms.
Two half walls finished with granite ledges, as well as wood posts and wood ceiling beams, create the distinctive space of the living room while maintaining its openness to the kitchen area, and an oversized picture window in this room allows for wonderful front yard and forest views. The breakfast/dining area and the adjacent kitchen are quite spacious, offering wonderful work, family and entertaining space. The breakfast room has the sliding door walk-out to the back deck - and the kitchen itself showcases granite counters with a raised breakfast bar; a travertine-tiled backsplash; wooden cabinetry with some glass-panelled upper doors, pots and pans drawers, a large pantry, and valance lighting; stainless steel double under mount sink and appliances including an over the range microwave, side by side fridge/freezer, and stove with dual ovens and a gas cooktop; a dishwasher panelled to blend in with the cabinetry; as well as direct access to the garage.
The main 4-pc washroom features a travertine-tiled floor; a linen closet; a furniture-style vanity; and a porcelain-tiled vanity backsplash, accent wall, and bath/shower area that are accented with a marble-tiled mosaic design. All three bedrooms on the main level have ceiling fans and large windows - with the the third bedroom featuring a mirrored door double closet, and the second bedroom having two separate closets, both with bi-fold doors. The master bedroom (which enjoys front yard and forest views) also has a mirrored door double closet, as well as a 3-pc ensuite washroom with a walk-in shower area and built-in toiletry storage.
Hardwood stairs lead down to a professionally finished lower level, which features above grade window throughout, and a huge recreation and games area finished with hand-scraped laminate flooring and pot lighting. This space also has a corner gas fireplace with a floor-to-ceiling stacked stone facade and live edge wood mantle; a custom-built wet bar with live edge wood counters and a stacked stone lower outer facade; as well as a separate bar/servery area with a live edge wood counter. This level also features a laundry room with slate-tiled floor, front load washer and dryer, live edge wood shelf and counter, and a modern laundry sink; a bedroom with a double door walk-in closet; and a bonus room suitable as a workout area, a home office, or as another bedroom, and which has access to two separate storage areas.
This home is within the catchment areas of Morning Glory Public School, St. Bernadette Catholic Elementary School, Sutton District High School, and Our Lady of the Lake Catholic College School; as well as Keswick Public School, St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Elementary School, and Newmarket High School for their French Immersion programs.
The Pefferlaw Tract of the York Regional Forest is directly across from this home, giving nature enthusiasts acres of wooded landscape to explore, and the heart of Pefferlaw for everyday shopping and essentials is just a few minutes away. The urban centres of Sutton and Keswick are 17 and 25 minute drives away (respectively) for big box shopping, restaurants and entertainment - while for commuters, access to Hwy 404 is less than 30 minutes away, and access to Hwy 48, Lakeridge Road, as well as Regional Rd 12 are short drives away.
