Welcome to 1015 Colonial Street, a spacious 3+2 bedroom home with a walk-out basement situated within the family-minded Liverpool neighbourhood of Pickering.
Featuring a brick exterior, a two car garage with an interlocking driveway, and interlocking to a private front entrance - this home’s backyard is a fully fenced and extremely low maintenance summertime oasis. The two-tiered wood deck: its upper tier is accessible from the main level breakfast area, and has stairs to a lower tier entertainment area and hot tub. There is an interlocking covered patio area off the basement walk-out, which has steps to an in-ground pool and its surrounding deck area that also features a pond in its southwest corner.
The main level showcases new hardwood flooring throughout - and in addition to the natural lighting, is also brightened with pot, track and contemporary lights. To the upper level is a staircase with hardwood treads and railing that has the classic accents of white risers and wrought iron spindles, as well as decorative trim along its wall, and its upper landing illuminated by a chandelier - and off the side hall is a double coat closet with opaque panelled doors; a powder room with a furniture-style stone-topped vanity; and a laundry room with a tiled floor, front load washer and dryer, stainless steel sink, access to the garage, and a side entry door.
The formal dining room off the foyer has a sliding barn-style door for privacy from the main entry, with French doors for entertaining convenience with the kitchen - and also features a bay window, wainscoting and crown moldings, as well as a papered accent wall. The living room enjoys a south-facing exposure and overlooks the backyard, while a gas fireplace with a floor-to-ceiling tiled facade brings warmth during the cool weather months. The kitchen is a fantastic work and gathering space, and showcases marble flooring; stone counters and ceramic back splashes; stainless steel appliances and a double under mount sink; a centre island with breakfast seating; a breakfast area with California shutters on its windows and sliding door walk-out; as well as exceptional cabinetry storage that includes a wall-to-wall pantry, a servery area, and a built-in ironing board.
The upper level has hardwood flooring in the hallway, and newly laid hardwood floors in all three bedrooms. The common area of this level features a linen closet; a 4-pc washroom with pot lighting and ceramic finishes; a bedroom with a double closet, and a bedroom with a walk-in closet - and both of these bedrooms also have north facing windows with privacy shades. Through a double door entry is the master bedroom - which has a turret-shaped south-facing wall with three windows, a sitting area, and a wall-to wall closet with organizers. Its newly renovated ensuite washroom showcases a tiled floor; pot lighting; a freestanding tub with a hand-held shower; a custom vanity with contemporary lighting, double basins, and a stone counter; as well as a glass shower with a spa system, and tiled walls with an arabesque accent design.
The lower level has also been newly renovated - and with its separate access into the home (a double door entry from the backyard), is also ideal as an in-law suite. Finished with laminate flooring and wainscoting, the lower level has storage under the staircase; two bedrooms with double closets - one bedroom also has access to a laundry area with washer and dryer; as well as a 3-pc washroom with stunning tiled finishes, a furniture-style vanity with stone counter, and an acrylic shower with glass doors. The light-filled, open concept living space encompasses a family room warmed by a gas fireplace with stacked stone facade and live edge mantle; a dining area; and a kitchen complete with wood countertops, a subway-tiled back splash, contemporary cabinetry, pot lighting, appliances, and a stainless steel double sink.
This home is within the catchment area of Pine Ridge Secondary School; as well as Maple Ridge Public School, C. E. Broughton Public School (Whitby, Modified Calendar), St. Isaac Jogues Catholic Elementary School, Dunbarton High School, and St. Mary Catholic Secondary School for their French Immersion programs.
A short walk to Lynn Heights and Forestbrook Parks, public transit, and a local shopping plaza - while the Pickering Town Centre Mall, the GO Station, recreational and community facilities, Pickering’s waterfront, restaurants and entertainment, as well as access to Hwy 401 are all short drives away.
