Welcome to 161 Atherton Avenue, a beautiful four bedroom brick home with four washrooms, situated on a corner lot within a family-minded community of Northwest Ajax.
Through the double door entry is a ceramic-tiled foyer and reception space, with columned entries into formal living and dining rooms finished with hardwood flooring. The living room enjoys west- and south-facing exposures, and its two bay windows and accent window are complete with California shutters. A beautiful chandelier and pot lighting additionally brightens this room, which is open to the kitchen’s breakfast area.
A functional work and family space with ceramic flooring throughout, the kitchen has stone counters with a separate lower breakfast bar rounded at the end of the peninsula, so as not to interfere with the main counter work area. Also featuring pot and pendant lighting, the kitchen additionally showcases a stone-tiled back splash; espresso-coloured cabinetry with molded uppers and a pantry area; as well as a stainless steel double under mount sink, stove with dual ovens and a smooth cooktop, dishwasher, and a double door fridge with bottom mount freezer.
The breakfast area has a classic light fixture complementing the natural brightness streaming into this room, and its sliding door walk-out opens to a west-facing and fenced-in backyard with a patio area.
The elegant entertaining space of the formal dining room showcases a coffered ceiling with accent pot lighting, with the added ambiance of a chandelier suspended from a beautiful ceiling medallion - and both its bay and accent window have California shutters.
The main level also features a mirrored door double coat closet in the foyer, and a second coat closet off the side hall - where you also find a powder room, a laundry room - and to each of the upper levels, dark-stained hardwood stairs and railings.
At mid-level is a huge family room well-suited for both casual and formal entertaining. Finished with dark wooden flooring, this room has a vaulted ceiling with the ambient lighting of a gorgeous chandelier; east- and south-facing windows with California shutters; and the warmth of a gas fireplace surrounded by an elegant mantle.
The upper level is finished with dark wooden flooring, as well - and its second, third, and fourth bedrooms are all nicely sized, have ample closet storage, and good-sized windows that allow for abundant natural lighting. The main 5-pc washroom is shared amongst these bedrooms, and features a ceramic tiled floor and bath area, double basins in the vanity, and has a linen closet right outside its door.
The bright and graciously sized master bedroom at the end of the hallway has a double door entry, an oversized west-facing window with a display ledge, as well as his-and-her double closets, and its own linen closet. Completing this beautiful retreat is a 5-pc ensuite washroom with ceramic finishes throughout, a corner soaker tub and a separate glass shower, a water closet, and double basins in the vanity.
Off the lower level’s staircase is a ceramic-tiled mid-landing providing access to and from the double car garage - and the lower level is fully finished, bringing extra recreational and living space to the home - but also has has great potential as an in-law suite.
Featuring dark wooden flooring, pot lighting, and oversized windows - this level has a 4-pc washroom with a ceramic-tiled floor and bath area; two arched wall niches with accent lighting and glass shelves; two mirrored door double closets, with a linen closet in the washroom; a storage area; as well as a kitchen with ample cabinetry storage, ceramic flooring, a glass-tiled back splash, and a stainless steel double sink, oven with gas cooktop, and fridge - while the openness of the main space allows for living and dining areas, with potential for the addition of a bedroom.
This home is just steps from public transit, and close to schools, parks, the Nottingham Plaza, and places of worship - while community centres and recreational complexes, the Greenwood Conservation Area, the Durham Centre Shopping Plaza, the Ajax GO Station, and access to Hwy 401 and the 407 are all short drives away.
