35 Adams Drive is an energy-efficient rated, four bedroom brick home situated on a premium-sized private lot in Central Ajax, just minutes from the fine recreational and waterfront activities of this lakeside community, and with Lord Elgin Park right outside its backyard.
Through the enclosed mudroom and the main double door entrance is a large foyer that offers a warm and inviting welcome into the home. Wood trims and an oak staircase enhance this feeling, as does the gleaming hardwood flooring that flows throughout the hallway and into the living and dining rooms.
Natural light streams through a large bay window in the living room, while a classic light fixture brings additional brightness into the dining area - and these combined entertaining spaces also feature the elegance of crown moldings and beautifully finished wood French door entries.
As a wonderful entertaining convenience, the dining room also has direct access into the kitchen - a gorgeous work space with a bright, south-facing exposure - and which is open to the adjacent family room.
As beautiful as it is functional, this gourmet kitchen showcases cabinetry with soft-closing drawers; stainless steel appliances including fridge, built-in dishwasher and microwave, and an oven with gas cooktop and warming drawer; Corian countertops and an extra-deep double under mount sink with upgraded faucet; as well as a tiled back splash with an accent inlay.
The breakfast area has a complementary servery area with glass panelled upper cabinets - and the walk-out from here opens onto a raised deck with privacy railing and a natural gas barbecue, and which can be shaded by a retractable electric awning that comes with a remote.
A large wall cut-out maintains an openness between the kitchen and the family room - a bright, yet relaxing entertaining space that enjoys backyard views through a large picture window, and which has the cozy touch of broadloom and a gas fireplace surrounded by floor-to-ceiling brick.
Other important interior and exterior features of the home include an interlocking double-wide driveway and a front walkway with railing; a garage door opener with remote; updated windows and roof; a tankless hot water heater; a high-efficiency furnace; central air conditioning; a central vacuum system with equipment; upgraded electrical light fixtures; and the home is also wired for CAT-5 and for an alarm system.
The upper level also has the coziness of broadloom throughout, and features four very spacious bedrooms, two washrooms, and a linen closet.
The second bedroom has a walk-in closet, while both the third and fourth bedrooms have ample closet space - and these three bedrooms share the main 4-pc washroom. The generously sized master bedroom is filled with soft natural light through its north-facing window, has a large walk-in closet, and is complete with a 4-pc ensuite washroom.
The main level additionally features a laundry room with a stainless steel sink, front load washer and dryer with pedestals, cabinetry storage, and a side door providing access to an outdoor terrace; a mirrored door double closet in the foyer hallway; as well as an updated powder room.
Directly across from the family room are the stairs to the fully finished, above ground walk-out lower level. Incredibly spacious and brightened with pot lighting, this level has high-quality laminate flooring with sub-floor throughout - and also features a workshop area, a Napoleon waterfall fountain, an upright freezer, a cold cellar, and plenty of storage. The L-shaped recreation area has two distinct spaces: a media room warmed by a gas fireplace, and which includes a 65” 3D plasma TV and glasses - as well as a games area that has the walk-out to a large south-facing and fully fenced backyard that includes a garden shed, two rain barrels, and a composter. The sliding doors open onto a patterned concrete patio area that is partially covered by the main level deck, and there is a lush tree-line of majestic evergreens for privacy between the yard and neighbouring Lord Elgin Park.
Offering the lifestyle of lakeside living, in a great family neighbourhood close to reputable schools, this home enjoys proximity to many other prime amenities including shopping plazas, Durham Region Transit, GO Transit, quick access to the 401 and the 407 — as well as community-oriented services, a conservation area, parks, and recreational facilities.
