Welcome to 125 Broadview Avenue, an exceptional 3+1 bedroom brick bungalow situated on a premium sized lot within the Blue Grass Meadows neighbourhood of Whitby.
With a lot size of 75’ x 200’ (approximately), this home is set well back from the street and has a mature seasonal shade tree in the front yard. The driveway is lined with armor stones and can accommodate up to eight vehicle parking - while the double car garage is insulated, heated and air conditioned, has an epoxy-coated concrete floor with in-floor heating, and also features a work area with cabinets as well as wood panelled walls. A breezeway also connects the garage to the home, and also provides covered access to and from the front and back yards.
To the front entrance is an interlocking walkway - and on one side of the front door is a raised stone garden bed with mature shrubs, while the interlocking continues to the other side, creating a partially covered patio area. The south-facing backyard is fully fenced, and features a children’s play structure, a fire pit, a mature tree, as well as two separate garden beds - one behind the garage which has blueberry bushes, and a large raised stone bed that has strawberry and raspberry plantings. The two walk-outs from the main level of the home open onto a stone patio area that features an eight-person hot covered and protected by a pergola with wind covers - and attached to this patio is a wood deck with built-in benches and a storage cubby.
The main level features ceramic flooring in the foyer, the hallway, the washroom, and the kitchen area; dark engineered hardwood flooring finishing the Great Room and the three bedrooms; and a wonderful open-themed flow and layout perfect for entertaining that easily spills to the outdoors during the warm weather months.
The Great Room enjoys a south-facing exposure, and has an oversized sliding door walk-out to the backyard. This room also features the warmth of a wood-burning fireplace with a floor-to-ceiling brick mantle, and has the elegant finishing touch of crown moldings. The kitchen and breakfast area are filled with light through to oversized windows - and this bright working space also showcases a mosaic-tiled back splash; ample cabinetry storage (the corner upper cabinet has a chalkboard finish, great for family notes and reminders!); as well as awhile appliances including a double door fridge with bottom mount freezer, dishwasher, and oven with gas cooktop.
Both the second and third bedrooms have double closets and good-sized windows; the master bedroom has a huge east-facing window, as well as a double closet with organizers; the 4-pc washroom has tiled finishes throughout, a vanity with stone counter, crown moldings, and a bath/shower combo with a window; while the linen closet is conveniently placed right outside the washroom’s door.
Surrounding the open area around the staircase is a hardwood railing, and is continued along side the stairs to the lower level. Carpeted throughout, this level features a huge games and recreation area with lots of living and entertaining space, as well as a brick fireplace that can be converted to gas, if desired. There is storage under the staircase, and more storage available in a combined furnace and laundry room that comes with cabinets, a front load washer and dryer, as well as an upright freezer. To complete this level is a space that is ideal for teenagers or adult family members, and which features a spacious bedroom with pot lights and a contemporary light fixture; a walk-in closet; and a 3-pc ensuite washroom - which showcases an oversized shower area with a glass door and partial wall, pot lights, rainfall shower head, and a shower seat; a furniture-style vanity with a stone counter, and tiled finishes throughout.
This home is within the catchment areas of Bellwood and John Dryden (Fr. Imm) Public Schools; St. Paul and St. Mark the Evangelist (Fr. Imm) Catholic Elementary Schools; Anderson Collegiate and Vocational Institute and Donald A. Wilson (Fr. Imm) Secondary School; as well as Father Leo J. Austin Secondary School.
A short walk to parks and public transit; close to the Kendalwood Shoopping Plaza, the Civic Recreation Complex, and Trent University’s Durham GTA campus - the Whitby Mall, the Oshawa Centre Mall, the Thickson Ridge Power Centre Mall, The Entertainment Centrum, the GO Station and access to Hwy 401, as well as Whitby’s waterfront parks, beaches and harbour are all just short drives away.
