Welcome to 149 Thompson Road, a breathtaking and extremely private 10 acre property situated in a north Grafton, a mainly rural community in the Township Alnwick/Haldimand, Northumberland County.
An exceptional property for empty-nesters, retirees, or those looking to enjoy the peace and tranquility of a rural setting - yet with everyday amenities still close at hand - this property is filled with majestic trees, and there is a creek that runs along its west side. Other great exterior features include a long driveway; a garden shed and a detached garage with a single door; a swim spa the backyard; a huge pond with a dock that isfed by two springs; walking trails; raised garden beds; and on the east side of the property is an asphalt tennis/basketball court.
The two bedroom bungalow has been freshly painted throughout, and with windows in every room (most which are quite large in size), this charming retreat enjoys an abundance of natural light, as well as breathtaking outdoor views.
The main level has a wonderful open concept design and features laminate flooring throughout, as well as pot lighting in the Great Room and the second bedroom.
The Great Room has a vaulted ceiling, and encompasses the kitchen, dining area, and living room - all which enjoy the stunning outdoor scenery through a west-facing floor-to-ceiling window that stretches almost the length of the room. Above the dining area is a ceiling fan, while between the living and dining areas is a wood-burning stove set on a tiled hearth - and off the living room is a sliding door walk-out onto a huge deck which wraps around to the front entry door, and also has a metal gazebo for afternoon shade in the summertime. The bright and cheery kitchen features ample cabinetry storage; lots of counter work space; a skylight; and is complete with a stainless steel double sink, and appliances including a fridge with bottom mount freezer, oven with smooth cooktop, and a built-in microwave and dishwasher.
The two bedrooms have a double French door entry between them, with the the master bedroom showcasing a beautiful contemporary chandelier, and the smaller of these two rooms currently used as an office - yet if two bedrooms are desired, the French doors could be removed and replaced with a wall. Completing the main level is a 4-pc washroom, which features a tiled floor and finishes, a corner glass shower, a soaker tub, a Euro-style vanity, as well as two linen/toiletry cabinets.
To the lower level is a staircase with dark coloured treads and white risers, and this level features a spacious recreation area with laminate flooring and pot lighting, an oversized above-grade window, and access to an L-shaped storage room. This storage area houses the mechanical aspects of the home (furnace, electrical panel, etc…); has a laundry area with a washer and dryer; and offers more than enough space for household and pantry storage, and even for a workshop/hobby area.
This home is a four minute drive to the nearby rural community of Centreton for the everyday convenience of its variety store, postal services, and public library - while the heart of Grafton is just eight minutes away, which also has a variety store and a public library, as well as an arena, restaurants, and other local services. Access to Hwy 401 and world famous Ste. Anne’s Spa are both short drives away, and the Town of Cobourg for most essential amenities, including Via Rail Train service and Northumberland Hills Hospital, is 20 minutes away.
