Situated within the Duffin’s Bay neighbourhood and nestled on a 65' x 116' lot on one of South Ajax’s most desirable streets, 73 Anstead Crescent is a wonderful 4+1 bedroom home that is just a short walk to waterfront splendour.
Mature perennials line the interlocking walkway to an east-facing glass-enclosed front porch - a lovely space to enjoy the morning sun, and which also has direct access from the garage.
The entrance foyer is finished with parquet hardwood flooring, and off this space is a double coat closet, as well as access to the lower level. To the left is the entry into the formal living room, where an oversized picture window allows for natural light while providing views of the front garden. This elegant entertaining space is open to the equally elegant formal dining area - with a set of French doors between these two rooms providing semi-privacy when needed - and both rooms are finished with beautiful oak hardwood flooring.
The dining room has direct access from the kitchen for entertaining convenience, and the kitchen itself is naturally bright and a wonderful space for meal preparation and for casual entertaining. The amazing cabinetry storage and counter work space is complemented with a servery area by the dining room entry, and the appliances and the stainless steel double sink are well placed for an efficient work flow. Both the kitchen and the adjacent breakfast area have large southwesterly-facing windows that brighten these spaces, and both are finished with ceramic flooring.
Off the breakfast area is the warm and inviting family room. Featuring hardwood flooring, built-in wall shelves, and a pocket door for privacy from the kitchen area - this casual entertaining space is warmed by a gas fireplace with a stone surround and wood mantle, and has a sliding door walk-out opening onto a backyard deck and pergola with lattice railing and privacy screens. Nicely sized, fully fenced, and with lovely perennial plantings - the backyard offers the perfect location for a pool and the creation of a dream outdoor oasis.
The main level also has a combined laundry and mudroom off the entrance hall - which features updated flooring, a modern laundry sink, washer and dryer, closet and cabinetry storage, a powder room, as well as access to the garage and a side door to the front and back yards.
To the upper level is a carpeted staircase, and this level also has cozy carpeting throughout the hall and in all four bedrooms. The second, third, and fourth bedrooms are all quite spacious and have large windows allowing for ample natural lighting, and these bedrooms feature oversized closets with triple sliding doors. Off the hallway is a huge double closet for linen, toiletry, and household storage - while conveniently nearby is the 4-pc main washroom - which features updated flooring, a wall-to-wall vanity, and a ceramic-tiled bath area.
Through a double door entry is the generously sized master bedroom. In the corner is a fireplace with a brick facade and ceramic-tiled hearth, and this beautiful personal retreat additionally features a very spacious walk-in closet, and a 4-pc ensuite washroom with updated flooring, a ceramic-tile bath area, and a vanity with countertop basin. There is also plenty of space for a sitting area by the bedroom’s bay window, and with its ceramic-tiled ledge and southwesterly exposure, makes it a wonderful spot for indoor potted greenery.
The lower level brings additional living space to the home, and features a large recreation area, as well as a nicely sized bedroom, both finished with cozy carpeting. This level also offers great utility space, including a cold room; a bonus room ideal for storage; as well as huge unfinished storage area that also offers great potential for workshop space.
Just steps to waterfront parks and trails, and offering the lifestyle of lakeside living, in a great family neighbourhood close to reputable schools, this home enjoys proximity to many other prime amenities including shopping plazas, Durham Region Transit, GO Transit, quick access to the 401 and the 407 — as well as community-oriented services, a conservation area, parks, and recreational facilities.
