Welcome to 18 Jarvis Drive, an immaculately maintained home with a wonderful backyard oasis, and situated within a family-minded neighbourhood of Port Hope’s west end.
This home features a single car garage; front garden beds with shrubs and evergreens; as well as a stamped concrete walkway to the covered front porch, which has wood steps and composite flooring. The fully fenced backyard is made for entertaining - and showcases a large tiered deck with pergolas and two walls with privacy slats; a grand tiki bar; exterior lighting; and perennial gardens.
The front door has sidelights, and opens into a ceramic-tiled foyer with both a coat closet and garage access. Ceramic tiles also finish the kitchen and the powder room - while beautiful hardwood flooring is found in the living and dining rooms, the hallway, and the master bedroom.
The dining room enjoys a south-facing exposure while overlooking the front yard, has an octagonal-shaped coffered ceiling with pot lighting accents and an elegant light fixture suspended from an interior drop ceiling, as well as two arched entries from the foyer and the kitchen. The living room has a warm and inviting atmosphere, with white wainscoting providing a striking contrast to its bold wall colour. A gas fireplace adds coziness, and from here is the sliding door walk-out to the backyard oasis.
Open to both the dining room and living rooms, the kitchen has a L-shaped peninsula that separates it from the main hall while providing additional work space, while a half wall separates it from the living room - and additionally features espresso-coloured cabinetry with under cabinet lighting; a tiled back splash; track and pot lighting; as well as a stainless steel double sink, fridge, oven, built-in microwave, and dishwasher.
Off the hall to the master bedroom is a powder room with pedestal sink, a built-into-the-wall broom/pantry closet, as well as the stairs to the lower level.
The master bedroom is naturally bright, yet very relaxing - and features a ceiling fan, two double closets, and a luxurious ensuite washroom. Showcasing extensive travertine tiling throughout, this washroom also has ceramic accents; pot lighting; a furniture style vanity with a granite counter and under mount basin; a jetted tub; and an oversized glass shower with rain and hand-held shower heads, as well as body jets.
To the upper level is a carpeted staircase with a hardwood railing finished with white spindles - and this level has cozy broadloom throughout its hall and the two bedrooms. Both bedrooms are quite bright - the second (smaller) bedroom comes with a spacious single closet, while the first (larger) bedroom has a double closet. They share the 4-pc washroom, which is finished with a ceramic-tiled floor and bath area, and has a linen closet right outside its door.
To the lower level is another carpeted staircase with a hardwood handrail, and this level showcases an incredibly sized recreation area finished with quality laminate flooring and which has been divided into two distinct spaces by a half wall with a bar ledge to accommodate additional seating. There is also a bonus room with laminate flooring and a closet that is well-suited as an office, a hobby room, or a bedroom; as well as a large storage/mechanical/laundry room complete with front load washer and dryer.
