Welcome to 31 Freeston Crescent, an exceptional family home situated on a premium-sized corner lot within the sought-after Pickering Village community of Ajax.
Professionally landscaped and showcasing gorgeous curb appeal, stone interlocking surrounds the driveway - and the perennial plantings, evergreens, seasonal trees, as well as the extensive lawn area are all maintained with an in-ground sprinkler system. The interlocking is also continued as walkways along both sides of the home - with one walkway leading to a backyard gate on the west side, while the other leads to the semi-circular steps of an east-facing double door entrance with wrought iron scrollwork as well as a huge arched window above it.
Beyond the entry doors is a main level with an open concept layout. The foyer features a soaring Cathedral ceiling open to the upper level, as well as columned entries into the formal entertaining spaces, both which are finished with hardwood flooring - a lovely living room with 9’ ceilings and four windows with arched transoms; as well as an elegant dining room, its octagonal-shaped ceiling finished with crown moldings and an accent medallion for its light fixture.
Hardwood flooring and crown moldings are also found in the generously sized family room - a bright, yet cozy casual entertaining space warmed by a gas fireplace, while California shutters provide light control and privacy for its windows, as well as for those in the adjacent breakfast area.
Finished with ceramic-tiled flooring that also flows throughout the foyer and main hallway, the kitchen and breakfast area also feature crown moldings and pot lighting - while the beautifully renovated kitchen additionally showcases cabinetry with maple doors and valance lighting; granite counters and a stone-tiled back splash; a stainless steel double under mount sink and appliances; as well as breakfast seating at the peninsula.
The sliding door walk-out opens to a backyard surrounded by both wood and ornamental fencing - while seasonal outdoor entertaining can be readily enjoyed on a professionally built 1,000 sq. ft. composite deck with amazing dining and conversation space.
Curving gracefully to the upper level is a staircase with a designer wrought iron railing, and across the landing is the first of four fully renovated washrooms, this one featuring porcelain-tiled finishes; a bath area with sliding glass shower door; a floating vanity with a stacked stone-style back splash, and pot lighting.
All the bedrooms are carpeted, with the third bedroom featuring two single closets, as well as three arched windows along its south-facing turret-shaped wall - and carpeting is also featured in the hallway, as is wainscoting and crown moldings.
The second bedroom has a double closet - and across from it is a custom-designed dressing room with hardwood flooring, crown moldings, and a gorgeous light fixture. Created as an extension to the master bedroom’s walk-in closet, this space was originally the home’s fourth bedroom, and can be converted back if need be.
In addition to its walk-in closet and dressing room, the generously sized master bedroom has a contemporary ceiling fan with remote; enjoys the natural lighting of east- and north-facing exposures; and has the elegant finishing touch of crown moldings. Its bright and beautifully finished spa-like ensuite washroom showcases porcelain-tiled finishes; pot lighting and crown moldings; a free standing tub; a glass shower; as well as a vanity with granite counter and double basins.
Off the main level foyer area is a coat closet; access to the double car garage; a sunken laundry room; a powder room with a porcelain floor and a floating vanity with a stacked stone-style back splash; as well as the staircase to the professionally finished lower level.
With great storage space and a cold cellar, as well as showcasing an amazing entertaining room featuring Berber broadloom, a gas fireplace, a built-in media unit, pot lighting, and wainscoting - behind a solid wood door is a private cigar and cognac room finished with trimmed walls and ceiling, custom built-ins, a travertine tiled floor, and a stacked stone accent wall.
This level additionally features a 2-pc washroom with a pedestal sink and travertine-tiled walls and floor - while the wet bar in the recreation area also features the luxurious finish of a granite counter with a raised bar, as well as a travertine-tiled floor.
Walking distance to schools, the Duffins Creek Conservation Area, as well as the shops and entertainment in the heart of Pickering Village - this home is also close to the Riverside Golf Course, shopping plazas, and recreational facilities - while the GO Station and access to Hwys 401 and the 407 are all short drives away.
