Represented by Sonia Sampson, Broker at Royal LePage Connect Realty, and set amongst million-dollar executive homes on a prestigious street within Pickering’s desirable Dunbarton neighbourhood, welcome to 1982 Spruce Hill Road.
Lovely perennial plantings line the interlocking walkway and the covered front porch, a befitting entry into this uniquely designed 4+2 bedroom front split brick home set on a beautiful and private 54’ x 102’ lot.
The oak hardwood flooring of the reception hall flows into the formal living room, an exceptionally sized entertaining space with a gas fireplace insert in the original floor to ceiling brick fireplace, and with a double French door entry from the reception hall.
The foyer also has double French doors opening into the reception area, and this spacious entrance features a mirrored door coat closet; a steel front door and side opening casement windows, all with decorative glass inserts; and a built-in wood bench seat.
A brick planter is a focal point in the reception area, and above the oak staircases to the upper levels is a Cathedral ceiling with one of seven skylights featured in the home.
Oak hardwood flooring is also seen in the main level dining room, hallway, and family room - and the formal dining area features a 10’ vaulted ceiling with a centre wood beam, a picture window with back yard views, as well as a wall cut-out with a wood ledge for openness to the living room below.
An exceptional work space, the updated kitchen showcases beautiful oak cabinetry with abundant pantry and storage space; granite counters with a stainless steel double under mount sink and a breakfast bar at the peninsula; appliances including a built-in dishwasher, an over with gas cooktop, microwave and fridge; pot lighting; as well as a bright, greenhouse-style breakfast area overlooking the backyard greenery, and with access to the solarium.
An addition to the home, the all-season solarium has French door entries from the breakfast area and family room; wood-panelled walls, with the home’s exterior brick retained as an accent; five skylights for abundant natural lighting; and a walk-out to the tranquillity and privacy of a backyard surrounded with mature trees, and complete with a garden shed, as well as a Broilmaster BBQ with a natural gas hook-up.
The incredibly spacious family room is open to the above level, and in the corner is a wood-burning “Heatilator” fireplace surrounded by floor-to-ceiling brick. Its Cathedral ceiling has a skylight with a remote-controlled solar-blind - and the wall to the kitchen is open and finished with a wood bar ledge and accent lighting for entertaining ease.
In addition to a powder room, as well as a laundry room with washer, dryer, freezer, access to the garage, and a side door to the yards - this home also has two spacious lower levels - the first which offers a bedroom and a bonus room - both with double closets, and a recreation area with potential for a fireplace; while the lower basement level has a workshop, as well as a bedroom with a gas fireplace, a 4-pc washroom, and a walk-in closet.
The upper level has hardwood flooring throughout, and features a loft space open to the family room below; a double linen closet; a common use washroom; and three family bedrooms with double closets and ceiling fans - while other great features of the home include a steel roof; a double car garage with two openers and remotes, upgraded garage doors with double-glazed windows, and a side exit to the yards; a Trane furnace and air conditioning with a Nest Learning thermostat; a backflow valve in the basement; and upgraded attic insulation.
The master bedroom is complete with a walk-in closet, a ceiling fan, and an ensuite washroom, as well as the potential for a fireplace - and this one-of-a-kind family home is within the catchment area of highly-rated public and Catholic schools; is also close to public transit as well as the Amberlea Shopping Plaza; while the Pickering Town Centre Mall, Pickering’s exceptional waterfront community, the GO Station, and access to Hwys 401 and the 407 are all short drives away.
