Welcome to 1559 Otonabee Drive, a wonderful 4+2 bedroom home with four washrooms situated in a well-established neighbourhood of Pickering’s highly desired Amberlea community.
A brick home with four car driveway parking, patterned concrete steps lead up to a spacious and inviting covered front porch - and through a glass-paneled entry door with a scrolled wrought iron insert is a main level showcases bright, light-filled principal rooms with a fantastic ease of flow for entertaining.
Off the reception area is the entry into the elegant, open concept living and dining rooms. With a soft neutral colour palette, beautiful hardwood flooring, and the ambient glow of a timeless light fixture - these elegant formal entertaining spaces have a warm and inviting aura, while a second entry to the main hall allows the entertaining to easily spill into the kitchen area, and to the equally warm and inviting family room.
Also finished with hardwood flooring, light through a west-facing window, as well as a soft colour palette, gives this relaxing gathering space a bright, airy atmosphere - while a gas fireplace surrounded by an elegant mantle adds warmth and coziness - and this room, as well as the formal entertaining rooms, have light-diffusing blinds on their windows that also allow for privacy.
A wall cut-out opens the family room to the updated kitchen area - an incredibly functional work space showcasing a stainless steel French door fridge, built-in microwave and dishwasher, oven with smooth cooktop, and a double under mount sink. Also featuring a stone countertop and a ceramic back splash with a subtle wave texture - cabinetry stretches from the east wall along the full length of the south wall, providing outstanding storage and pantry space. The sliding door walk-out opens to a fenced backyard that has a storage shed and a large concrete patio for outdoor entertaining - and adding to the brightness of the kitchen is well-placed lighting, a neutral colour palette, as well as light-coloured flooring - which are also featured in the main hall and reception area.
This level also features a sunken landing off the main hall that has a separate side entrance to access the lower level - which features a two bedroom in-law suite with a 3-pc washroom and an open concept family room, kitchen, and dining area. Also off the main hall is a mirrored door coat closet; a laundry room with front load washer and dryer, and access to the garage; a powder room with tiled walls and a pedestal sink; as well as a staircase with hardwood treads and railing accented with white risers and spindles to the upper level.
This level has a neutral colour palette and hardwood flooring throughout, four bedrooms, two well-appointed washrooms, and light-diffusing blinds on all the windows.
The second, third, and fourth bedrooms are naturally bright, quite spacious, and have ample closet storage - with the second and fourth bedrooms also featuring contemporary pendant-style light fixtures. These bedrooms share a main 4-pc washroom with updated flooring; a vanity with under mount basin and a separate toiletry cabinet, both with stone counters; and a tiled bath and shower area.
The hallway is brightened with light through an east-facing window, a classic light fixture, and a skylight above the staircase - with this hallway leading into the master bedroom. Enjoying a west-facing exposure, and featuring a walk-in closet - this bedroom showcases an updated ensuite washroom beautifully appointed with tiled finishes throughout including a mosaic wall accent border; a relaxing two-person jetted tub; a glass shower with a seat, and rainfall and hand-held shower heads; as well as a gorgeous vanity with under mount basins, a stone counter, and a toiletry cabinet.
Within the catchment area of Highbush Public School; as well as Frenchman’s Bay Public, Dunbarton High, and St. Mary Catholic Secondary Schools for their French Immersion programs; and minutes to the Amberlea Plaza and a wide variety of shops and services along Kingston Road - this home is also just a short drive to the Pickering Town Centre Mall, the GO Station, and has easy access to Hwy 401 - as well as being close to the shopping, entertainment, and waterfront enjoyment of Pickering’s beautiful Frenchman’s Bay community along Lake Ontario.
