Welcome to 995 Serpent Mounds Road, a newly built 3+1 bedroom custom executive bungalow situated within the charming hamlet of Keene in Otonabee-South Monaghan.
Surrounded by majestic trees, this property backs onto conservation lands and enjoys beautiful views of the rural landscape, as well as nearby Rice Lake.
Throughout this home are large windows that take advantage of the natural lighting, as well as the fantastic outdoor views - while other great interior features are pot lighting; contemporary ceiling light fixtures, including a modern chandelier in the dining area; deep baseboards and elegant trims with crisp, clean lines; as well as beautiful hardwood flooring throughout most of the main level, luxury vinyl plank flooring throughout most of the lower level, and porcelain-tiled floors in the foyer entrance, the laundry room, as well as in all the washrooms - and all these washrooms feature vanities with quartz counters.
The front door and its sidelights have decorative glass inserts, and all are topped with a transom for additional natural lighting. Off the entrance foyer is a double coat closet; the hallway to the bedrooms; and a laundry/mud room - which features two double closets, a stainless steel laundry sink, cabinetry storage, and direct access to and from the garage.
The main level principal spaces are an open concept design, and this wonderful entertaining space has a vaulted ceiling above the living and dining areas with a ceiling fan and a chandelier. The kitchen area has a large walk-in pantry - and while not yet complete - the home does come with a standard kitchen package (and upgrades are possible). Off the Great Room is a sliding glass door walk-out onto a raised wood deck with railing, from which views of the farmlands, conservation areas, and Rice Lake can be enjoyed.
There are three spacious bedrooms on this level, with both the second and third bedrooms featuring double closets, and sharing the main 4-pc washroom, which has a tiled bath/shower area, as well as a built-in toiletry/linen closet. There is also a double linen closet off the hallway, and at its end is the master suite. This beautifully bright bedroom features a large walk-in closet, wonderful outdoor views, and has an ensuite washroom complete with double basins in its vanity, a shower area with pebble stone floor, as well as rain and hand-held shower heads.
To the lower level is a hardwood staircase and handrail - with the staircase treads extra deep for a more comfortable step. This level showcases a huge recreation area with a built-in gas fireplace, and a sliding glass door walk-out underneath the raised deck - which makes a great covered patio area from which to enjoy the surrounding landscape. The lower level also features a large bedroom with backyard views and two double closets; a luxurious 3-pc washroom with a pebble stone floor in its glass shower; and a huge unfinished space that is great for storage, or can be converted at a later date into workshop or utility room, a private office, or as personal/family needs desire.
This home has an oversized two car garage that comes with openers and remotes; is insulated (the doors, also, are insulated); and is deep enough to accommodate parking for a pick-up truck in one bay, or for future installation of workshop benches without interfering with parking for average sized vehicles.
This home is within the catchment areas of North Shore Public School, Monsignor O’Donoghue Catholic Elementary School, Thomas A. Stewart Secondary School, and Holy Cross Catholic Secondary School; as well as King George and Edmison Heights Public Schools, St. Anne Catholic Elementary School, Adam Scott Collegiate Institute and Intermediate School, and St. Peter Catholic Secondary School for their French Immersion programs.
For everyday conveniences and local eating establishments, Keen’s quaint urban centre is just a 12 minute walk, or a minute away by car - while just 20 minutes away is big box shopping, major grocery stores, entertainment, and many essential services in nearby Peterborough. Rice Lake is also a short drive away for boating, fishing and other aquatic activities, as is access Hwys 7, 28, and the 115 for commuters.
