Welcome to 5167 Oak Hills Road, an exceptional property with deeded access to Rice Lake, and situated within the charming community of Bewdley in the Township of Hamilton, Northumberland County.
This premium-sized corner property has only one neighbouring home to the south, while a ravine bounds it on the east side. The yards are dotted with evergreens and seasonal trees, a mature hedge brings privacy from the south side, and the yards are also landscaped with gardens that add greenery and colour during the warm weather months. Other exterior features include a double car garage with abundant outdoor parking, a new wraparound composite deck overlooking the ravine and Rice Lake, as well as concrete steps and walkway to the inviting covered front porch and entrance.
The front entry door and its sidelights are new, and open into an incredibly spacious 2+1 bedroom brick bungalow that showcases three new propane fireplaces, new oak hardwood flooring on the main level, and an abundance of natural lighting through a multitude of windows - which include two huge picture windows on the south side, four floor-to-ceiling windows on the north side (two which are wall-to-wall, as well), and many oversized windows throughout the remainder of the home.
Other interior features include huge clothing and linen closets which are outfitted with overhead storage cubbies; pot lighting; built-in shelving units; a railing along the foyer hallway/lower level staircase accented with water glass panels; as well as wood finishes in the foyer area and the family room.
The family room has two entries with pocket doors (one from the foyer, the other from the kitchen), and this light-filled entertaining space showcases wood-panelled walls and a box beam ceiling; cozy carpeting; stacked stone cladding and a tiled hearth surrounding its fireplace; a sliding door walk-out onto the deck; and fantastic ravine and lake views.
The beautifully updated kitchen has a bright, open design - with this incredibly functional work space showcasing stone-tiled back splashes; new granite counters, with the peninsula having a waterfall edge; breakfast seating and pendant lighting with the peninsula; a double wide stainless steel under mount sink; new cabinetry, its storage complemented with a walk-in pantry with a pocket door entry (which also has a built-in counter and can be utilized as a private office); as well as new appliances including a double door fridge with bottom mount freezer, dishwasher, built-in microwave, and stove with an induction cooktop. The kitchen also has a walk-out to the deck, and the interior door is new.
The living and dining rooms have been beautifully combined, with these two spaces warmed by a fireplace surrounded by floor-to-ceiling stone, and also enjoying gorgeous lake and outdoor views.
The two bedrooms and washrooms on the main level are nestled away from the principal spaces for privacy, with Berber broadloom flowing throughout the hall and bedrooms here - and both bedrooms are quite spacious and have views of Rice Lake. The two washrooms have new vanities and toilets, and both have adjoining access to a common-use bath and shower area. The master bedroom has private access to one of the washrooms - and all three of the spaces associated with washrooms feature vinyl flooring and ceramic tiled walls.
The fully finished lower level features a huge laundry room with cabinetry storage and counter work space, as well as a new washer and dryer - and this room also provides access to a cold room, a large storage room, and the furnace room.
The remainder of this level is finished with laminate flooring, and features a large bonus room suitable as a bedroom; a new 3-pc washroom showcasing wainscoting, a glass-enclosed acrylic shower area, and a furniture-style vanity with countertop basin; and a large recreation area with access to the garage, a box beam ceiling, and a fireplace surrounded by floor-to-ceiling stone.
Other recent updates to the home include the roof, soffit, fascia, eavestrough, and leaf guard; all new windows; vinyl siding in gable ends; new heating and cooling systems, hot water heater, and reverse osmosis water system; as well as new insulation.
