Welcome to 253 Albion Avenue, a wonderful five bedroom bungalow situated on a premium sized lot within Oakville’s prestigious Morrison neighbourhood.
Set well back from the street, this brick and stone home showcases exceptional frontage and has a huge backyard. The double car garage is complemented with abundant driveway parking (no sidewalk on this side of the street!), the front yard is shaded my a majestic tree, and an interlocking walkway lined with garden beds leads to the front door. The backyard is surrounded by mature trees, offering a wonderful sense of privacy - and for outdoor entertaining, there is a large deck accessible from the kitchen area. The home also features a partially finished lower level that provides plenty of storage, and great potential for future living and entertaining space.
The entrance foyer is finished with ceramic flooring, as is a powder room just off to the left - which additionally features a pedestal sink and ceramic tiles on the lower half of the walls. As the hallway turns to the bedroom wing, the entry to the right opens into a combined living and dining room, both finished with oak hardwood flooring and crown moldings, as well as the coziness of a wood burning fireplace in the living room. The southwesterly-facing living room window is massive, providing a wonderful view of the front yard greenery, while the dining room window has northeasterly exposure and backyard views - with both windows flooding natural light into these elegant entertaining spaces.
The dining room has direct access into the kitchen, which features exceptional cabinetry storage, including a pantry; easy care vinyl flooring; lots of counter work space, as well as breakfast seating at the peninsula; a stainless steel double sink; and comes with fridge with bottom mount freezer, oven with smooth cooktop, built-in microwave, and dishwasher. The adjacent space is carpeted and and has a sunroom-like aura to it. Easily accommodating both a family room with a breakfast area, this light-filled room has gorgeous backyard views, and a walk-out onto the deck.
The main hallway is also carpeted, as are all five main level bedrooms. Three of these bedrooms are in a separate wing off the main hallway, and these bedrooms are very generous in their size, have large windows for plenty of natural light, and share amongst them a 4-pc common use washroom.
Off the kitchen is the second bedroom wing, and here you find the remaining two bedrooms, both which are nicely sized and have large windows. This section of the home also has the staircase to the lower level, as well as rear door that can provide access to the backyard. (***please note, currently there are no exterior steps off this door, and these would need to be installed for this to be a fully accessible entrance/exit***)
