Welcome to 1767 Rockwood Drive, a stunning custom-built four bedroom executive home with four washrooms situated within a prestigious, family-friendly neighbourhood of Pickering’s desirable Highbush community.
An interlocking driveway, beautifully landscaped front gardens, as well as an interlocking front terrace enhances this home’s curb appeal - while beyond the stone portico is 3,500 sq. ft. of beautifully appointed interior living space.
Polished porcelain floor tiles gleam in the sunken foyer, which steps up to a main level showcasing wide plank hardwood flooring, plaster crown moldings, exquisite lighting, as well as open concept principal rooms that are an entertainer’s dream, most which have 9’ ceilings - while a home office privately nestled behind an opaque-panelled French door entry off the foyer features an 11’ ceiling.
The living room is a beautiful entertaining space exuding casual elegance that compliments the formality of the adjacent dining room - which is set on a raised floor, has a chandelier suspended from a coffered ceiling, and two arched entries for added grandeur.
The dark-coloured trims surrounding the arched front entrance and two interior entry ways, as well as the staircases and all the railings, are complimentary accents to the hardwood flooring, and balance beautifully with the neutral decor throughout this level - while this light and dark colour balance can also seen in the kitchen.
Brightened with pendant and pot lighting, as well as natural light through a clerestory window - the custom gourmet kitchen showcases dark cabinetry with exceptional storage and pantry space; a gorgeous mosaic back splash that stretches to the ceiling above the built-in gas cooktop; light-coloured quartz counters, including a peninsula with waterfall edge, seating, and a stainless steel sink; a built-in stainless steel oven, microwave, and dishwasher, as well as a side-by-side fridge/freezer - while polished porcelain flooring finishes the kitchen and its breakfast area.
Garden doors in the breakfast area open to a covered concrete rear porch with ornamental railing that overlooks a premium-sized, deep backyard that has abundant gardening, entertaining and play space, with mature trees for shade during the summer months.
The incredibly spacious family room boasts a 12’ ceiling with pot lighting and a modern chandelier, as well as two east-facing arched windows with backyard views. Warmed by a gas fireplace with a stone mantle and dark wood shelf, this great gathering space also has Harman Kardon speakers for high quality listening pleasure.
Above the upper level staircase is an 18’ ceiling with both an exquisite chandelier and a skylight - with the upper level showcasing 9’ ceilings and wide plank dark hardwood flooring throughout, crown moldings and pot lighting in the hallway, a double linen closet, four bedrooms, and three gorgeous washrooms.
With its proximity to the master suite, the second bedroom is an ideal nursery or toddler’s bedroom, and features California shutters on its windows, as well as a double closet.
The third bedroom has trimmed walls, a vaulted ceiling with crown moldings and a contemporary chandelier, a window with arched transom, as well as a double closet - with this bedroom having semi-private access to the main washroom - which features a tiled floor and glass shower area, as well as a wall-to-wall tiered vanity with stone counters, glass vessel basins, and an arched window above its centre lower tier.
At the end of the hallway outside this washroom is a sitting area with a wood bench seat below its window - as well as the entry into the fourth bedroom - which features a raised ceiling above a window with arched transom; a double closet; and an ensuite washroom with a subway-tiled bath and shower area, a slate floor, as well as a vanity with stone counter and vessel basin.
Through a double door entry is the elegant master suite. This generously sized personal space showcases an oversized east-facing window with a wood bench seat; a coffered ceiling with a contemporary chandelier; as well as a huge walk-in closet with custom wood and metal organizers, and pot lighting. Its ensuite washroom has been luxuriously appointed with polished porcelain flooring; a glass shower with a seat, and a separate bath area - both with tiled walls accented with mosaic borders; as well as a contemporary vanity with a stone counter and vessel basins.
Set on a premium sized 50’ x 200’ lot - other superb features of this home include an in-ground sprinkler system; exterior pot lighting; a finished two-car garage with a wash station; video monitoring that can be connected to a smart phone and monitored anywhere via Wi-Fi; as well as an unspoiled lower level with 9’ ceilings - and the main level additionally showcases two more stunningly appointed rooms - a powder room with trimmed walls, crown moldings, and a wall-mounted marble vanity - as well as a sunken laundry room that is simply outstanding.
This gorgeous utility space showcases natural limestone flooring; a front load washer and dryer with quartz counters, and a modern sink with upgraded faucets - all set against a fully tiled accent wall; incredible storage with built-in cabinets, cubbies, and a shoe closet; hurricane-style lighting; as well as beautiful wood accents, including reclaimed wood beams from a barn - and this room also has a French door entry to and from the garage.
Within the catchment area of top-notch schools - including Westcreek Public School, as well as Frenchman’s Bay Public, St. Monica Catholic Elementary, Dunbarton High, and St. Mary Catholic Secondary Schools for their French Immersion programs - this impressive home is just minutes to a wide variety of shops, services, and restaurants along Kingston Road, as well as being close to the vast green space and winding nature trails of Rouge National Urban Park. The Pickering Town Centre Mall, the GO Station, and access to Hwy 401 are just short drives away - as is the shopping, entertainment, and waterfront enjoyment of Pickering’s beautiful Frenchman’s Bay community along Lake Ontario.
