An exceptional 4+1 bedroom home with five washrooms backing onto Riverside Golf Course, and situated on a prestigious street within the highly sought-after Pickering Village neighbourhood of northwest Ajax, welcome to 14 Roberson Drive.
A rarely offered John Boddy executive home, its professionally landscaped front and back yards showcase extensive stone interlocking, exterior pot and landscape lighting, as well as a sprinkler system.
Mirroring the curvature of its arched porch entry is the transom above the double front doors, their glass panels accented with scrolled wrought iron inserts - and this home also features a double car garage, a brick exterior, and extensive exterior trim work that adds to its wonderful curb appeal.
Through the front entrance is a sunken porcelain tiled foyer, with decor columns gracing the entry to the spacious reception area - its gleaming hardwood flooring flowing into the entertaining spaces of the formal living and dining rooms.
With an oversized entry between these spaces giving them an open concept layout, the living room features pot lighting and a huge south-facing bay window with front yard views, while the dining room has a gorgeous chandelier suspended from an octagonal-shaped coffered ceiling, and its entry from the main hall has half walls with decor columns to further enhance its openness. Both rooms additionally feature 9’ ceilings, crown moldings, upgraded door and window trims, as well as 4” baseboards - and most of these details are carried throughout the main level.
Across the hall is a French door entry into the equally elegant family room. With the coziness of a gas fireplace flanked by two accent windows, a floor-to-ceiling stacked stone facade surrounds the fireplace, and enhancing the warmth felt in this room are oak media cabinets, an oak fireplace mantle, and hardwood flooring - and this space also has the additional brightness of a contemporary light fixture and pot lighting.
The family room is adjacent to the sunken breakfast room - where the glow from a new modern chandelier complements the natural light streaming through three walls of windows with backyard and golf course views. The windows have California shutters for light control, and a garden door walk-out from this space opens onto the backyard’s wraparound interlocking patio, which is accented with decorative stone pillars, while beyond the backyard are the ponds and manicured green spaces of the golf course - and the glistening porcelain flooring of the breakfast room is carried into the stunning custom kitchen.
Showcasing granite counters, with breakfast seating at the peninsula; glass-tiled back splashes; pot lighting; and a corner granite ledge below windows with California shutters - this stunning work space also showcases a stainless steel double sink, dishwasher, oven with gas cooktop, and a side-by-side fridge/freezer; as well as newly finished maple cabinetry with two pantry areas, a built-in chef’s desk, and extended height uppers with crown moldings and under cabinet lighting.
To both the upper and lower levels are curved hardwood staircases with wrought iron pickets - and the incredibly spacious upper level showcases four bedrooms, three luxurious washrooms, a library, and hardwood flooring throughout.
Just off the staircase landing is the fourth bedroom, which has space for a sitting area, a south-facing Palladian-style window and an accent window, as well as a double closet - and which is adjacent to the common use washroom. Featuring a built-in linen closet and a water closet, both with frosted glass doors, as well as a glass shower with a spa system - the four full-size washrooms in this home have been fully renovated with custom showers and pot lighting, while all five washrooms showcase quartz vanity counters with under mount basins, updated fixtures, and porcelain-tiled finishes.
Above the staircase and hallway is John Boddy’s trademark octagonal shaped skylight, and through a set of French doors with beveled glass inserts is the library, which also has closet storage and pot lighting.
The second and third bedrooms both have double closets, while the third bedroom additionally features a south-facing Palladian-style window - and these bedrooms share between them a 3-pc Jack-and-Jill washroom, and there is also a linen closet in the hallway placed between the bedroom entries.
Through a double door entry is the exceptional master suite. Overlooking the golf course and backyard, the three large windows also allow for abundant natural lighting, and the bedroom additionally features a sitting area by the windows, two spacious walk-in closets, and pot lighting. Its luxurious ensuite washroom showcases a free-standing tub; a glass shower with spa system; a water closet with a frosted glass door; as well as a corner vanity with a deep chocolate coloured finish and co-ordinating mirrors.
Other superb features of this home include a central vacuum system; a new roof and upgraded attic insulation; California shutters, blinds, or Hunter Douglas shades on many of the windows; as well as an 8' x 10' shed in the backyard - and off the main level’s reception area are two double coat closets with mirrored doors; a laundry room with tiled flooring, cabinetry and closet storage, walk-out access to the side yard, and a front load washer and dryer; as well as access to the garage and a luxuriously sized powder room - and in addition to the almost 4,000 sq. ft. of stunning main and upper level living space, this home showcases a professionally and fully finished lower level.
Renovated with an open concept design, this level showcases wide plank flooring, pot lighting, and oversized basement windows throughout; a large walk-in pantry and storage room, as well storage under the staircase; and a beautifully appointed 3-pc washroom. The massive recreation area can easily accommodate games, sitting, or entertainment spaces - and also incorporates a custom bar and kitchen area with quartz counters and back splash, an island with seating, contemporary cabinetry, and a stainless steel double under mount sink, dishwasher, bar fridge, as well as built-in wall oven and microwave. This level is ideal as an in-law suite, as well - featuring a very spacious bedroom with walk-in closet storage.
With the green spaces of Riverside Golf Course just beyond its backyard, this home is also close to public and Catholic schools, places of worship, the shops and services of the Pickering Village business district, as well as the walking trails of the Duffins Creek Conservation Area; and is just a short drive to shopping plazas, the Pickering Town Centre Mall, the Ajax GO Station, and for access to Hwy 401.
