Welcome to 796 Oliva Street, a wonderful 3+1 bedroom bungalow situated within the desirable West Shore neighbourhood of southwest Pickering.
This home features a brick exterior with siding and stone accents; a single car garage with driveway parking for four cars; a front entry door with a transom and sidelight; as well as a nicely sized front yard with a perennial garden and a patio across the front of the home. The backyard is fenced, premium sized, and relatively low maintenance - and features a garden shed; raised gardening beds; a walkway from the front yard, access from the garage, and side door access from the home; as well as a huge interlocking patio area that wraps around to the side of the home, where a pergola provides a lovely (and private) sitting area.
This home opens with a granite-tiled foyer, which steps up to a reception area with a double coat closet and a gorgeous contemporary chandelier. The granite tiles are continued into the kitchen, which features quartz counters; a ceramic back splash; a ceiling fan; abundant cabinetry storage; stainless steel double sink; and includes appliances. There is also space for a cozy breakfast area, where a wall cut-out maintains an openness to the living room.
The combined living and dining rooms are finished with hardwood flooring, and are filled with natural light streaming through a huge picture window with an east-facing exposure, while the dining area has the added ambient brightness of an elegant ceiling light fixture.
The hardwood floors continue into a hallway brightened by a a gorgeous contemporary chandelier, and which leads to the three main level bedrooms. Off this hall is a pantry closet with pull-out shelves; a linen closet; as well as a 4-pc washroom with a ceramic-tiled floor and a bath area with a soaker tub, and a vanity with quartz counter and under mount basin. Both the second and third bedrooms are carpeted and have ample closet space; and the master bedroom - which overlooks the back yard - features a ceiling fan, his-and-hers double closets, and hardwood flooring.
Also off the bedroom hallway is access to the lower level, which has its own separate entrance from the side yard, and offers wonderful household living space, yet is also ideal as an in-law suite. This level features a spacious laundry room with a tiled floor, washer and dryer, and access to a storage/pantry room; as well as a carpeted bonus room with a double closet and pot lighting - ideal as a bedroom, yoga/work-out room, or a private home office. A 3-pc washroom showcases beautiful finishes, including upgraded tiles throughout; a mosaic-tiled accent border along the walls; a custom vanity with stone counter and under mount basin; pot lighting; and an oversized glass shower area.
Completing the lower level is a large family recreation area with wooden floors and pot lighting; a gas fireplace surrounded by a stacked stone facade; and a wet bar with stone counter, cabinetry and shelving, and a bar fridge.
