Welcome to 5 Gilmour Drive, a well-maintained three bedroom family home in Central Ajax, conveniently located close to many prime amenities.
Featuring a brick exterior and a double car garage, this home has interlocking walkways to its covered front entrance, as well as on both sides of the home to the backyard gates. The back and side yards are fully fenced, and cedars line the rear of the yard. There is also a raised deck with privacy lattice, as well as a ground level patio area and gardening beds for vegetables or perennials.
The main level features ceramic flooring throughout the foyer, main hallway, the laundry and powder rooms, as well as in the kitchen area - and hardwood flooring finishes the living, dining, and family rooms. Off the main hall is a beautiful oak staircase curving to the upper level, a double coat closet, and the powder and laundry rooms. Both of these rooms have ceramic tiled walls, and the laundry room also features cabinetry storage, washer and dryer, as well as access to the side yard and to the lower level staircase.
The living and dining rooms are open to each other, and offer an elegant formal entertaining space. Providing direct access to the kitchen from the dining room is a French door with beveled glass inserts, and the living room’s French door entry off the foyer also has beveled glass inserts, as does its transom. The family room has a westerly exposure, and enjoys the warmth of a wood-burning brick fireplace.
The kitchen area also has a westerly exposure, and benefits from an abundance of natural lighting through oversized windows and two skylights in the vaulted ceiling of the breakfast room - which also has a sliding door walk-out onto the backyard deck. The kitchen itself features wood cabinetry with plenty of storage; lots of counter work space, including a centre island; a ceramic back splash; as well as a stainless steel double sink and appliances including an oven with gas cooktop, dishwasher, and double door fridge with bottom mount freezer.
Above the upper level staircase is an elegant light fixture, and this level features parquet hardwood flooring throughout, three bedrooms, two washrooms, and a double linen closet. The second and third bedrooms are quite spacious and have double closets - and both share the 4-pc main washroom, which features a ceramic tiled floor and bath area, as well as built-in shelving for additional linen and toiletry storage. The master bedroom is very generous in size, and bridging the space between the bedroom and its ensuite washroom is a built-in make-up vanity and the walk-in closet. The ensuite has ceramic finishes throughout, toilet and bidet, soaker tub, and a separate shower area with waterglass door.
Completing the home is the lower level, which offers an incredibly spacious open concept recreation area with laminate flooring, and plenty of storage including a cold room.
