Welcome to 817 South Drive, a wonderful 2+1 bedroom bungalow with two washrooms situated just steps from the shoreline of Lake Simcoe, within the Town of Georgina’s waterfront community of Jacksons Point.
Featuring a brick exterior; a long driveway leading to a detached single car garage at the rear of the property; two decks - one at the front entrance which has fantastic and direct views of the lake, the other in the backyard and which has a privacy wall on its east side; a backyard storage shed; as well as perennial gardens in the front yard - this home also has access to a private dock on Lake Simcoe from which to enjoy kayaking, canoeing, swimming, or fishing. (Please note, this is not an exclusive privilege, access is granted to all other homes on South and Hardwood Drives, as well)
The double front entry door and its sidelight are fully glass-paneled, allowing for amazing views of the lake to the north, while the door also has interior blinds for privacy and light diffusion. The door opens into an open-concept living room and kitchen, both having large west-facing windows, a vaulted beamed ceiling with fans above both rooms - while both rooms also have space for a breakfast room between them.
The foyer area has a coat closet, and to the left is a dining room with a huge window from which to enjoy lake views. The dining room also has a closet for household storage, and the first of this level’s two bedrooms - this one being the master bedroom, which has a large east-facing window - is off this space.
The gorgeous kitchen has a light and dark contrasting design, and showcases rich dark cabinetry with molded uppers, great storage that includes a pantry, and a chef’s desk; quartz counters; a vinyl back splash (easy clean-up!); a black dishwasher and sink with a drain board; as well as a stainless steel French door fridge with bottom mount freezer, oven with smooth surface cooktop, and a built-in microwave.
Just off the kitchen is the main 4-pc washroom, which showcases a bath/shower area with acrylic walls, jetted tub, and a rainfall shower head; a vinyl-tiled accent wall; and a vanity with quartz counter and under mount basin - as well as the second bedroom, which has an east-facing window; and the rear mudroom, which features a skylight, loft storage, stairs to the lower level, as well as a decorative glass-paneled door to the backyard deck with a matching sidelight window.
The lower level has its own separate entrance from the backyard, as well - and while adding great recreational and entertaining space to the home, also has potential for an in-law suite. Featuring updated flooring throughout, this level has ample storage; a bedroom with a huge double closet and a French door entry; a laundry room with washer and dryer which also provides access to a full washroom; as well as two distinct recreational areas - one which is quite spacious and can combine entertaining, living, and dining areas; the other which is ideal as a kitchen, having an existing vinyl-tiled floor and a stainless steel double sink, with room for a breakfast/dining area.
