Welcome to 1515 Hawkswood Drive, a sprawling 10 acre waterfront property in Ennismore surrounded by a forested landscape, and enjoying approximately 500’ of shoreline along Pigeon Lake.
Extremely private, the property is accessible via a very long laneway that brings you to a circular driveway and a triple car garage attached to the home. The property also has a separate detached double car garage off the main laneway; a gazebo close to the water’s edge; a pool surrounded with wood and concrete decking which is fully and separately fenced from the rest of the yard, and has a quaint gazebo/cabana for storage; a greenhouse with an upper level bunky; gardening beds in the yards; and both a boat launch and a separate boat slip.
The custom-built home has an exterior of brick, stucco, and stone that is surrounded by landscaped perennial gardens, trees, and shrubs; a huge side deck above the home’s sunroom; a rear balcony off the master suite; a large backyard deck with built-in seating; and a separate interlocking patio area off the deck, behind the garage.
The roof covering the front entrance has a wood-panelled ceiling and is supported by beams on stone pillars - and the double entry door is wood with full glass panels and a graceful arch.
The sunken foyer is illuminated by a hurricane-style light fixture and has deep, curved crown moldings - with the main level featuring hardwood flooring; pot lighting; warm wood finishes; as well as very generously sized principal rooms including a living room, a sun room, a home office/den, two dining areas, and a kitchen - all with huge windows that maximize natural brightness while providing unsurpassed outdoor views year-round.
The sunken living room has a massive west-facing bow window complete with light-diffusing blinds that has outstanding backyard and lake views - and during the chillier months of the year, a wood-burning fireplace with a floor-to-ceiling stone mantle adds coziness to the room.
Directly off the living room are the sunroom and the office/den. The sunroom has wood-panelled walls, three which are wall-to-wall windows; a ceiling fan; ceramic flooring; and two sliding door walk-outs to the front and back yards; as well as two sets of wood cabinets with ceramic-tiled counters for storage. The office has a French door entry, with a blind for added privacy - with this space showcasing wood trimmed walls, built-in wood cabinets and bookshelves, an east-facing bay window and a south-facing window, both with light-diffusing blinds; and a fireplace surrounded by floor-to-ceiling stone.
The first of the two dining areas is the more casual of the two spaces - the breakfast room. Having a deeply arched entry off the reception hall, and facing west, this light-filled space has a turret wall with a walk-out to the backyard deck, a transom, and two windows with light-diffusing blinds. Along its south wall is a built-in buffet cabinet, its east wall has built-in cabinets as well, while the north wall has a fireplace surrounded by floor-to-ceiling stone. There is also a built-in desk along the east wall, pendant lighting adds brightness when needed, and along its ceiling are deep curved moldings that continue into the kitchen area.
The kitchen is a fantastic work area, incredibly functional, and will be a joy for the home chef. Wood cabinetry can be seen on every wall, with some built into the wall, and offers more than abundant storage. The large centre island has seating and pendant lighting, there is a servery counter next to the entry into the dining room, and all the countertops are granite. The two corner windows have light-diffusing blinds - and completing this fabulous space is a stainless steel double under mount sink, a separate prep sink, a dishwasher, an oven with gas cooktop, a French door fridge, and a built-in microwave and oven with a warming drawer.
The formal dining room has two sets of French door entries - one off the kitchen, the other off the reception hall - and this lovely entertaining space features an east-facing bay window; as well as a ceiling with a deep coffered centre, accent lighting, and waffled sides - all with crown moldings.
The main level also has a powder room; coat and closet storage; an elevator to all levels; as well as a ceramic-tiled breezeway off the kitchen area that has a closet with mirrored bi-fold doors, a walk-out to the backyard, an entry to the garage, the staircase to the finished lower level - and a side hall leading to a secondary front entrance with a mirrored double closet, as well as a laundry room with front load washer and dryer, two sinks, and cabinetry storage.
To the upper level is a hardwood staircase, with this level featuring hardwood flooring, ceramic flooring, and broadloom; four bedrooms; three washrooms; and linen/storage closets.
The three secondary bedrooms are spacious and naturally bright - with the first of these bedrooms (which is considered this level’s second bedroom) featuring a double French door entry with blinds for privacy. This bedroom also has space for a sitting area by a bay window with a wood ledge; a double closet; a built-in wall cabinet; and a walk-out onto the side deck. The third bedroom has a very large light-filled sitting area with a walk-out onto the side deck, and an arched entryway to the bedroom space, which is carpeted, has a contemporary light fixture, and a walk-in closet. The fourth bedroom has broadloom for coziness and ample closet storage - and these bedrooms all share the main washroom, which has ceramic finishes throughout, a wall-to-wall vanity with double basins, pot lighting, and a bath/shower combo with sliding glass doors.
The master suite is simply spectacular. Its double French door entry has blinds for privacy, wood finishes are seen throughout, while Berber broadloom brings coziness and warmth, as does a wood-burning fireplace with a tiled mantle facade. Upon entry is a sitting area/office with built-in cabinets and a double closet with mirrored doors, and this space, as well as the bedroom, have deep curved crown moldings and pot lighting. The bedroom itself has a walk-out onto its private deck overlooking the backyard, bedside pendant lighting, and a full wood panelled wall with entries into the two ensuite washrooms.
Yes…separate his-and-her ensuite washrooms…both which have tiled finishes, pot lighting, towel bars, and shower areas - as well as their own distinct features.
The first ensuite also has warm wood accents throughout; a double closet; a two person glass shower; a vanity with stone counter, under mount basin, and overhead panel lighting; as well as a full length mirror on the entry door’s interior. The second ensuite showcases an archway to a bath area with a step-up jetted tub and a bay window; a vanity with stone counter, under mount basin, and a make-up vanity; a shower area with glass door; a closet with mirrored bi-fold doors; as well as a pocket door entry into a walk-in closet with organizers.
The lower level has a ceramic-tiled landing and hallway; exceptional storage space; pot lighting; and laminate flooring in all its living and recreational areas. The first of these rooms is a bonus room with a closet and built-in cabinets with a desk; the games and recreation area is huge, and is a great space for lively entertaining; and there is another huge room that has many potential uses, including a hobby and crafts room, a fitness studio, a media room, and much more.
This home is within the catchment areas of Chemong and Edmison Heights (Fr. Imm) Public Schools; St. Martin and St. Anne (Fr. Imm) Catholic Elementary schools; Adam Scott Intermediate/Collegiate and Vocational Institute (Fr. Imm); as well as St. Peter Catholic Secondary School (Fr. Imm).
With breathtaking natural surrounding that offer peace and privacy - this home is just 13, 23, and 24 minutes to Bridgenorth, Lakefield, and Peterborough (respectively) for shopping, restaurants, entertainment, and most other everyday and essential amenities.
