Welcome to 72 Howling Crescent, a well-maintained four bedroom home in Southeast Ajax, just minutes from the town’s outstanding waterfront park and its trails.
This two storey detached home features a double car garage; a covered front porch finished with a tiled floor; a west-facing upper level balcony; as well as exterior black-finished trims accenting the colour of the vinyl siding. The backyard is fenced, and has a large deck offering plenty of space for outdoor entertaining. There is also a small side deck off the kitchen area that is perfect for wintertime barbecuing, and which steps down to the larger main deck.
The main level features ceramic flooring in the foyer, the kitchen area, the laundry room, and the powder room - while beautiful dark stained hardwood flooring in the combined living and dining room, the hallway, and the family room. Contemporary light fixtures complement the natural lighting, a hardwood staircase with a carpet runner carries to the upper level, and a carpeted staircase leads to the lower level - and off the mid landing here is a powder room complete with pedestal sink.
Through an oversized entry is the elegantly combined living and dining rooms. The living room has a west-facing bay window, while the adjacent dining area has a beautiful flush mount light fixture. The family room is warmed by a gas fireplace, and two large windows on either side offer backyard views. A half wall with a decor column maintains an openness between this room and the breakfast area, which is illuminated by a modern chandelier and has the sliding door walk-out onto the side deck.
The kitchen is bright, beautiful, and functional - showcasing quartz counters; a subway-tiled back splash; a peninsula with a stainless steel double under mount sink; white cabinetry with modern hardware; as well as stainless steel appliances including a double door fridge with bottom mount freezer, oven with smooth cooktop, and dishwasher. Directly off the kitchen is the laundry room, which comes with washer and dryer, cabinetry storage, and also has a walk-out onto the side deck.
Off the upper staircase’s mid landing is a huge storage/linen closet, and the upper level features laminate flooring and contemporary light fixtures throughout, four bedrooms, two washrooms, and a walk-out at the west end of the hallway onto a balcony overlooking the street.
The second, third, and fourth bedrooms all have double closets - with the second bedroom additionally featuring a west-facing bay window with a bench seat; the third bedroom has a chandelier; and both the third and fourth bedrooms have east-facing windows - and these bedrooms share the main 4-pc washroom, which is finished with a ceramic-tiled floor and bath/shower area.
The master bedroom is very generously sized, and showcases a double door entry, a large west-facing window, and a very spacious walk-in closet. Its ensuite washroom has ceramic finishes throughout; a vanity with double basins; a soaker tub; and a separate walk-in shower area.
The fully finished lower level features broadloom and pot lighting throughout; has a coat closet, a large storage room, and storage space under the staircase; as well as two separate recreation areas. The one off the staircase landing is ideal for play space and family time, and its L-shape also allows for a home office or study area. The second recreation area has a French door entry affording it a bit more privacy, and a dry bar finished with quartz counters - making this space well-suited to adult gatherings.
