Welcome to 221 Kennedy Drive, a wonderful riverfront property with a charming 1+2 bedroom home situated within the rural Municipality of Trent Lakes in Peterborough County.
Surrounded by a majestic tree canopy, the property features vehicle parking and rustic wood fencing along the roadside; has rustic wood and gravel steps, plus a flagstone walkway, to a newer front yard deck enhanced with stone garden beds filled with perennials; a bunky with a cedar-lined interior and pot lighting; a storage shed; as well as a set of stone steps on the north side of the property. These steps are next to a pathway that leads down to a clearing along the bank of the Miskwaa Ziibi River, which flows into nearby Little Bald Lake - and for boating enthusiasts, a five minute drive takes you to Oak Shores Marina, which offers docking services.
The home features an exterior of siding with flagstone accents on either side of the front deck, while along the south and east side of the home is a wrap-around tiered deck with walk-outs from the main and lower levels, as well as views of the river.
Through the double front entry door is a main level showcasing pine-panelled ceilings, wood trims, wood interior doors, as well as pine-panelled walls and a hardwood railing around the stairs to the lower level - and high quality laminate flooring is laid in the foyer, as well as in the principal entertaining spaces. The foyer also has a coat closet, and directly off this space is a 4-pc washroom with a tiled floor and bath area, and a wood vanity.
The bedroom on this level has parquet hardwood flooring, a lovely semi-flush light fixture, and includes a mirrored door wardrobe. The kitchen has a galley-style layout and features vinyl flooring, track lighting, a tiled back splash, a double sink, a walk-out onto a small side deck that provides access to the yard and which is also great for convenient year-round barbecuing, as well as a large wall cut-out for an openness between it and the living room. The cabinetry provides ample storage, and is finished with contemporary brushed metal drawer and doors pulls - with this functional work space complete with a fridge, stove, and dishwasher.
The remaining main level rooms include a living room that showcases a wood-burning fireplace that has the surrounding rustic finishing accents of a floor-to-ceiling brick mantle, wood trims and mantle shelf, a tiled hearth, and pine wainscoting. The second space is illuminated by a beautiful chandelier, and while practical as a family room, office, or den - is also ideal as a dining room. Both of these entertaining spaces have large windows for natural lighting and outstanding outdoor views - and both additionally feature walk-outs onto the wrap-around deck.
The stairs to the lower level are carpeted, and has a pine handrail, as well as built-in display niches along its walls. The lower level features high quality laminate flooring in much of its space, oversized basement windows, as well as wood interior doors and trims. A combined storage/utility/laundry room comes with washer and dryer, and has a door to access to the side yard; while the recreation area features pot lights, a fireplace, and pine-panelled accent walls. There is also a 3-pc washroom with vinyl flooring, a corner glass shower, and a Euro-style vanity; as well as two bedrooms - the second bedroom is carpeted and has a spacious double closet - while the main bedroom showcases a ceiling fan, a spacious double closet, as well as two additional storage closets on either side, and has a walk-out onto the lower tier of the backyard deck.
