Welcome to 23 River Forest Street, a wonderful 4+1 bedroom home with five washrooms situated in the sought-after Rouge Fairways neighbourhood of east Markham.
Through the boldly coloured double entry door is a tiled foyer inviting you into a main level showcasing an open concept design, a soft neutral decor, and generously sized principal rooms.
Gleaming hardwood flooring flows throughout a main hallway brightened with pot lighting, as well as through the elegantly combined entertaining spaces of the living and dining rooms. The north-facing windows of the living room’s turret-shaped wall allow for abundant soft natural lighting, while a beautiful flush mount ceiling light adds ambient brightness. The warm, welcoming aura of these spaces are well-suited for intimate gatherings, and the exceptional size of the dining area makes it ideal for large scale entertaining.
A butler’s servery provides direct access from the dining room into the incredibly spacious and functional kitchen - with both of these areas showcasing wood cabinetry offering exceptional storage, stone counters, and a tiled floor. The kitchen additionally features a tiled back splash and pot lighting; a stainless steel double under mount sink, oven with gas cooktop, and a side-by-side fridge/freezer; as well as a centre island with seating - and its breakfast area has a sliding door walkout to the south-facing backyard and its patio area.
The adjacent family room features hardwood flooring and pot lighting, two large windows with backyard views and south-facing exposures, as well as the coziness of a gas fireplace - its mantle extended to include a built-in media niche.
Just like the living and dining spaces, the family room and kitchen area also have a warm and welcoming atmosphere - and with the wonderful ease-of-flow throughout this level - large or small scale entertaining, whether formal or casual, is a delight.
The main level additionally features a laundry room with washer and dryer, cabinetry storage, and access to the double car garage, as well as a powder room - with both spaces finished with tiled floors. There is also a double closet with mirrored doors off the foyer, and a beautiful oak staircase to the upper level - which showcases hardwood flooring throughout, four bedrooms, three washrooms, and a centre hall layout.
The master bedroom has a double door entry, and this generously sized personal space has a south-facing exposure, can accommodate a sitting area, and has both a walk-in and a double closet - while its ensuite washroom showcases tiled finishes; a shower area with glass door; a corner tub; and a vanity with exceptional storage, a stone counter, and an under mount basin.
The very spacious second bedroom has a vaulted ceiling above its arched window, and also features a 4-pc ensuite washroom with a tiled floor and bath area. Completing this level are the equally spacious third and fourth bedrooms - with the fourth bedroom having a turret-shaped north-facing wall with three windows - and these two bedrooms share access to a 4-pc Jack-and-Jill washroom with a tiled floor and bath area, as well as a wall-to-wall vanity.
In addition to its brick exterior, this home also features evergreens along the east side of the driveway, as well as garden beds lining the walkway to its covered front entrance, enhancing the home’s curb appeal - while for improved energy efficiency, the attic insulation was upgraded to R40 in 2019.
The lower level is fully finished, bringing incredible living, entertaining, and storage space to the home, as well as having potential for an in-law suite. Hardwood stairs lead down to a recreation area with pot lighting, laminate flooring, and built-in media niches - while a French door entry opens into a kitchen complete with ample cabinetry storage, fridge, stove, and a stainless steel sink. Off the kitchen is a secondary recreation area that can accommodate a living and dining area, as well as a bedroom - with this space featuring built-in shelves, pot lighting, a double closet with mirrored doors, as well as a 3-pc washroom.
This home is steps from a lush ravine setting with the Rouge River flowing through it, as well as being a short walk to Boxwood Public School and Sir Richard W. Scott Catholic Elementary School, public transit, and Tomlinson Park - while the Remington Parkway and Markham Green golf courses, community centres, Markville Shopping Mall and big box plazas, Markham’s historic downtown along Main St, as well as access to Hwys 7, 407, and the 400 are all short drives away.
