A well-maintained home situated within the Wismer neighbourhood of Markham, welcome to 71 Ralph Chalmers Avenue.
Extensively landscaped with interlocking in its front yard, as well as along the side of the home to the backyard gate - the covered front porch has been enclosed with glass, while through an entry door with sidelight and transom is a ceramic-tiled foyer with double closet - and then an open concept main level with wonderful family and entertaining space.
An arched oversized west-facing window with a vaulted ceiling above it floods light into the living room, while a chandelier suspended from a Cathedral ceiling open to the upper level adds ambient lighting. In the adjacent dining room is a chandelier with a medallion - and these two formal entertaining spaces, as well as the remainder of the main level, are finished with hardwood flooring.
The dining area, the family room, and the kitchen all have California shutters on their windows - while pot lighting additionally brightens the east-facing family room and kitchen - with both rooms also featuring a soft colour palette giving them a fresh, airy atmosphere. The spacious family room has the the coziness of a gas fireplace - and the crisp, bright modern kitchen has white cabinetry with great storage; quartz counters with a stainless steel double under mount sink; as well as a gorgeous mosaic tiled back splash, its metallic look complementing the stainless steel appliances. Between these two rooms is space for a cozy breakfast area - and the sliding door walk-out from here opens to a fully fenced and nicely sized backyard with a large interlocking patio area, and wonderful potential for a dream outdoor oasis.
To the upper level is a beautiful hardwood staircase, and this level features hardwood flooring throughout, three bedrooms, two washrooms, a linen closet, as well as California shutters on all the windows. The second and third bedrooms both have double sized closets - while the third bedroom also features a vaulted ceiling above its arched window - and these bedrooms share a well-appointed 4-pc main washroom featuring a vanity finished with a quartz counter and contemporary lighting, as well as a beautifully tiled floor and glass shower.
Naturally bright, and overlooking the backyard - the master bedroom showcases a walk-in closet and a double door entry, as well as an ensuite washroom with beautiful tiled finishes throughout; a vanity with quartz counter; a glass shower area with rain shower and a marble-tiled floor; pot lighting; and a corner tub.
Across from the dining room is a sunken landing, off of which is a powder room with hardwood flooring, crown molding, pot lighting, and a quartz-topped vanity; as well as access to the single car garage, and a hardwood staircase to the lower level with stairway lighting.
Fully finished, this level features wide plank flooring and pot lighting throughout; good-sized storage areas; as well as a 3-pc washroom with a Euro-style vanity and tiled finishes, with mosaic accents in the glass shower. A full wall of built-in cabinets in the L-shaped recreation area provide additional storage, and the lower level is complete with a bonus room ideal as a hobby room or home office, as well as a laundry room with front load washer and dryer.
A short walk to Donald Cousens Public School - this home is also close to a wide variety of shops and services along Markham Road, public transit, and the Mt. Joy GO Station - while the entertainment and shopping of Historic Main St. Markham, as well as access to Hwys 7, 407 and the 404 for commuting are all short drives away.
