Welcome to 33 Gillett Drive, a beautifully maintained four bedroom home situated within the popular and high demand Salem Heights neighbourhood of Northeast Ajax.
This brick detached home features a double car garage; a stone front patio and steps to a covered porch with glass-paneled double entry doors; as well as a fully fenced and extremely low maintenance south-facing backyard that is almost all stone interlocking, with garden beds on its east side.
The main level is very bright and has a great open concept layout with spacious principal rooms. Featuring a neutral colour palette throughout, this level also has California shutters on the windows; classic light fixtures; ceramic flooring in the foyer and kitchen area; as well as dark hardwood floors in the living, dining, and family rooms.
The sunken entrance foyer steps up to the combined formal living and dining rooms - a half wall separating their distinctive spaces - and both a double coat closet, as well as the hardwood staircase to the upper level, are found off these two rooms. The short side hall next to the main staircase leads to a ceramic-tiled sunken landing - off of which is a powder room with a pedestal sink, garage access, and the stairs to the unfinished lower level.
The family room enjoys the warmth of a gas fireplace, while this space and the kitchen additionally bask in the bright light of their south-facing exposure. The breakfast area has the walk-out to the backyard, and the kitchen blends an aura of welcoming warmth with modern accents - showcasing chocolate-coloured cabinetry with brushed metal drawer and door pulls; stone counters with a glass-and-stone mosaic-tiled back splash; a centre island; as well as a stainless steel double under mount sink, oven with smooth cooktop, dishwasher, and side-by-side fridge/freezer.
The upper level showcases hardwood flooring throughout, four spacious bedrooms, two washrooms, and a laundry rooms - which has a tiled floor, cabinetry storage, and a front load washer and dryer.
The third and fourth bedrooms are exceptionally spacious, both having plenty of room for a sitting area - while the third bedroom also has a raised ceiling above its arched window - and all three secondary bedrooms have ample closet storage. These bedrooms also share the main 4-pc washroom, which has a ceramic-tiled floor and bath area, as well as a contemporary vanity with a stone counter and under mount basin.
The master bedroom is very generously sized, and this bright, south-facing retreat showcases two walk-in closets; space for a sitting area; and a 5-pc ensuite washroom with ceramic tiled finishes throughout, a vanity with stone counter and under mount basins, a corner shower with glass door, and a corner soaker tub.
