Welcome to 24 St George Street, a stunning three bedroom bungalow situated within the Franklin Beach community of Georgina, and just a short walk to the beautiful shoreline of Lake Simcoe.
Set nicely back from the street, this home has a lush green front lawn, perennial gardens, and armour stones lining one side of a driveway that can easily accommodate six car parking. The home and its double car garage is finished with vinyl siding with a stone front facade, and an interlocking walkway leads to a covered concrete front porch with exterior pot lighting.
The backyard is fully fenced, and can only be privately accessed through the garage, or through a sliding door walk-out off the dining area. This beautiful outdoor retreat has a storage shed, lots of lawn space, and a large interlocking patio area with a natural gas fire pit - and completing this oasis is an outdoor kitchen with a gas barbecue, as well as a hot tub.
Interior features of the home include engineered hardwood flooring in the Great Room and the bedroom hallway; a hardwood staircase to the lower level, its hardwood railing finished with wrought iron spindles; tiled floors in the foyer, a side hall leading to the garage, and in the two washrooms; Berber broadloom in all three bedrooms; California shutters on the windows; pot lighting and beautiful modern light fixtures; as well as built-in surround sound speakers on the main and upper levels.
The Great Room has a wonderful open concept design, and offers exceptional entertaining and family space. The living room has a vaulted ceiling, and is warmed by a gas fireplace with floor-to-ceiling stone cladding and a wood mantle - and the dining room has the walk-out to the backyard. The gorgeous custom kitchen showcases granite counters; a glass-and-stone tiled back splash; an island with breakfast seating and a stainless steel double under mount sink; espresso-coloured cabinetry with molded uppers and valance lighting; as well as stainless steel appliances including a microwave, fridge, dishwasher, and gas range.
The second and third bedrooms both have double-sized closets, with the first of these bedrooms also featuring a raised ceiling above its arched window. The main 4-pc washroom features a vanity with granite counter and pendant lighting, as well as a bath/shower area with a mosaic-tiled accent border - and there is also a spacious linen closet just outside the first bedroom.
The master bedroom has a double door entry, an exquisite flush mount light fixture, a large walk-in closet, and enjoys backyard views. Its ensuite washroom has been well-appointed with a wall-to-wall vanity finished with a granite counter, under mount basins, and a make-up area; a soaker tub; and a separate glass shower area.
The professionally finished lower level has been designed for family enjoyment and functionality, as well as being an ideal entertaining space. The lower landing has the coziness of berber broadloom, and directly across the staircase is the huge laundry room. Finished with a tiled floor, this great utility space has a front load washer and dryer, contemporary cabinetry and a modern laundry sink, as well as access to a large storage room and to one of the two recreation areas. Both recreation areas are separated by a set of pocket doors, and both feature quality laminate flooring and pot lighting. The rec area off the laundry room is well-suited as a family room, and showcases a wood panelled feature wall as well as a niche space with wood shelves and panelled wall. There is also a double closet, and a 4-pc washroom with a tiled floor, a vanity with granite counter and pendant lighting, as well as a tiled bath/shower area with a mosaic-tiled accent border - and these last two features give the space the potential for the creation of a fourth household bedroom. The second recreation area makes a great man-cave, and features a custom-built wood bar with a live edge countertop. A sliding barn door keeps a storage/utility room hidden away, and on the north side of the room is a tiled foyer area and a doorway providing staircase access to the garage.
