Welcome to 17 Annie Crescent, a wonderful family home nestled on a quiet street within Ajax’s sought-after Pickering Village community.
Enjoying direct backyard access to the Duffins Creek Conservation Area and its walking trails, this home also features a landscaped exterior setting of perennial gardens and extensive stone interlocking, as well as a low maintenance backyard summertime oasis.
The main level’s entrance foyer is open to above, and both it and its reception hall invite you into elegant entertaining spaces - many which showcase beautiful stone accents - such as the gorgeous stacked stone feature wall in the formal living room. Open to a formal dining area with a chandelier suspended from its tray ceiling, both of theses spaces are finished with wooden flooring and windows along the living room’s turret-shaped wall allow for soft natural light, while French doors provide a befitting entry off the foyer.
From the dining room is direct access to the kitchen and breakfast areas, both finished with the durability of vinyl plank flooring, which is continued into the reception and side halls, as well as the front foyer. This naturally bright family and work space features pot lighting and crown moldings; espresso-coloured cabinetry with a stand-alone pantry; stone counters with breakfast seating, and a stone-tiled back splash; a French door entry off the reception hall; as well as a stainless steel double under mount sink and appliances. Overlooking the south-facing backyard and conservation area, in addition, the patio door and the windows of the turret-shaped breakfast area have California shutters for light control.
Between the kitchen and the family room is a wall cut-out to maintain an openness amongst these informal entertaining areas. A warm and relaxing space, the family room features a stacked stone accent wall, as well as a stone upper facade with its corner gas fireplace - and is complete with a French door entry, wooden flooring, and California shutters on its window.
The reception and side halls have stacked stone finished walls, and off the side hall is the powder room, a coat closet, and the laundry room. Through the laundry area is access to a fabulous studio space that is ideal for entertaining or personal enjoyment. Featuring a loft area for storage or for use as a quiet rest space, the studio has a high ceiling and direct exterior access, as well as a stacked stone feature wall; a carpeted floor with thick underpadding for extra comfort and warmth; and a kitchenette area for added entertaining convenience.
To the upper level is a curved staircase with dark hardwood treads, white risers, and a railing with wrought iron spindles. This level features vinyl plank flooring throughout the hallway and in the three bedrooms - all which additionally showcase ceiling fans and feature walls with a wood grain-style finish.
The second and third bedrooms come with ample closet storage, and both share the main 3-pc washroom - which features a stone-topped vanity with under mount basin; a tiled floor; and a tiled glass shower area with mosaic accents.
The spacious master bedroom has a double door entry and a walk-in closet, while at its north end is a turret-shaped area washed in natural light and beautifully suited as a lovely sitting or reading space. Its ensuite washroom showcases a stone-topped wall-to-wall vanity with under mount basin that is surrounded on three sides by stack stone walls, and is complete with a tiled floor and a tiled shower area with glass door.
The main level foyer has a Cathedral ceiling and is open to this level, where a second storey window allows soft natural light to brighten the staircase and upper landing.
Fully finished, the lower level adds great family and entertaining space to the home. Featuring cozy broadloom for warm and comfort throughout, this level has a bonus room to accommodate personal or family needs; plenty of storage space; and an exceptionally sized bedroom. Pot lighting brightens the hallway and the family recreation area - and completing this level is a 3-pc washroom with a corner glass shower, while a wet bar complements the kitchenette area adjacent to the rec room - with both spaces finished with tiled floors and stacked stone back splashes.
Accessible through a sliding door walk-out from the breakfast area, the backyard is a fantastic low-maintenance outdoor oasis, and features two separate wooden decks; an outdoor storage shed; an interlocking stone patio area; as well as a hot tub and an in-ground pool.
Just a short walk to Eagle Ridge Public School and the Riverside Golf Course - this home is close to places of worship and public transit, as well as the heart of Pickering Village with its numerous businesses, services and entertainment. The Ajax GO Station, Pickering Town Centre Mall, and the Pickering SmartCentres and Durham Centre shopping plazas are just short drives away - and there is also quick and easy access to Hwy 401.
