Welcome to 141 Arnott Drive, a gorgeous custom-built 1+3 bedroom bungalow nestled within the ‘Chemong Bluffs Estates’ enclave of Ennismore in Selwyn Township, Peterborough County.

The main level features tiled floors in the foyer, the laundry room, the two washrooms, and the kitchen area - while beautifully hardwood flows throughout the living, dining, and family rooms, the den, as well as the master bedroom - and elegant light fixtures are seen in all the rooms. The powder room additionally features a vanity with stone counter and vessel basin; the laundry room has a double closet, a front load washer and dryer, and access to the garage; and there is a coat closet adjacent to the master bedroom’s entry door.
The den, which is also well-suited as a home office, has a double French door entry - and across the foyer from it is the dining room brightened with a contemporary light fixture. The dining room is open to the living room, which showcases a vaulted ceiling with pot lighting, the warmth of a gas fireplace with a floor-to-ceiling stone mantle, as well as a garden door walk-out onto the back deck - and wood columns set on stone pillars have been placed in a manner around these two rooms to outline their distinctive spaces. The family room - which is on the north side of this level and has a walk-out onto the back deck - also has the warmth of a gas fireplace, with an oak mantle and a tiled accent border surrounding the insert.
