Welcome to 145 Arnott Drive, a gorgeous custom-built 2+2 bedroom bungalow nestled within the ‘Chemong Bluffs Estates’ enclave of Ennismore, Selwyn Township in Peterborough County.
Nestled on an irregular shaped lot, the property is 1 1/3 acres in size (approx.), and backs onto a wooded area with a creek running through it. Chemong Bluffs Estates property owners also have deeded access to 128’ of shoreline along Lake Chemong, that has a 30’ aluminum dock and a boat launch.
Exterior features include storage sheds in the back yard; an attached garage with a double wide driveway and abundant vehicle parking; sprawling lawn space, and front perennial gardens; as well as a covered front entrance, a raised covered backyard deck, and a covered interlocking back yard patio - all with exterior pot lighting. The home has an exterior finish of wood siding and brick; the wood front porch has decor columns with brick bases - and the front door and its sidelights have decorative glass inserts.
The main level showcases an open concept layout with its principal spaces; red pine flooring throughout - with ceramic flooring in the foyer, the laundry room, and the master ensuite washroom; all the windows are quite large, many with exceptional backyard views, while multiple exposures allow for tons of natural lighting; and to the lower level is a staircase with hardwoods treads and railing, a Berber carpet runner, and white spindles with its hallway bannister. Off the foyer is a double closet; and a laundry room with washer, dryer, stainless steel sink, a double closet, and access to the garage.
A vaulted ceiling with a fan spans across the living room and breakfast area, which has the walk-out to the raised deck, while the living room features the cozy warmth of a corner gas fireplace with a floor-to-ceiling stone facade. Next to the breakfast area is the formal dining room, which has a French door entry and a contemporary light fixture.
The kitchen is an incredibly functional work space, showcasing pot, under mount, and pendant lighting; abundant cabinetry and pantry storage with molded uppers and a wine rack; ceramic back splashes; lots of counter work space, including a raised breakfast bar at the peninsula; as well as a stainless steel double sink, built-in microwave and dishwasher, oven with gas cooktop, and double door fridge with bottom mount freezer - and its ceiling is papered with a textured pattern simulating a faux tin finish.
The south wing of the main level features the generously sized master bedroom, which has his-and-her double closets - as well as an ensuite washroom with a corner soaker tub with ceramic surround, a walk-in acrylic shower area, and a vanity with stone counter. The north wing has a double linen closet at the end of the hall; a powder room with a stone-topped vanity; and the main level’s second bedroom - which has a double closet; and its own ensuite washroom with vinyl flooring, an acrylic bath/shower area, and a storage closet.
The lower level is like going to the cottage without ever leaving home. Throughout this level are gorgeous pine finishes, which include some of the walls finished with wide plank boards; interior entry doors and their trims; as well as baseboards and window trims - and all the windows have beautiful outdoor views. The family room features Berber broadloom, pot lighting, and the coziness of a corner wood-burning stove with a tiered stone hearth and corner stone walls. The games and recreation area has a walk-out to the back patio, and is finished with ceramic flooring that flows through the side hallway and into this level’s washroom - which features a walk-in ceramic tiled shower with a stone upper ledge, a stone lower threshold, and two shower heads; a space saving vanity; built-in wood linen shelves, a wood-panelled ceiling, as well as a sauna room. This level also has two bedrooms with double closets and Berber broadloom; abundant storage space; as well as a bonus room ideal as a hobby room, workshop, or home office.
