Welcome to 1246 Oakhill Avenue, a beautiful four bedroom home situated in a sought-after neighbourhood of North Oshawa’s Taunton community.
Featuring a two car garage, interlocking steps to a covered front entrance, and a double door entry with leaded glass inserts – this home also features a spacious fenced-in backyard that is landscaped with perennials and a stone interlocking patio area, as well as a large deck that stretches across the width of the home, with privacy lattice fencing at both sides. The front yard is also landscaped with perennials, as well as a stone interlocking front walkway and a side walkway to the backyard, and interlocking detail with the driveway.
The main level is painted in beautiful neutral colours accentuated by crisp white crown moldings, trims and baseboards throughout. Ceramic flooring flows from the foyer through to the kitchen area, while dark hardwood floors are found in the living, dining, and family rooms – and all the windows on this level have California shutters.
The formal entertaining spaces of the living and dining rooms are open to each other, and enjoy beautiful natural light that streams through the living room’s south-facing window. An elegant chandelier brings ambient lighting to the dining area.
Off the main hallway is a coat closet, as well as a home office with track lighting and a double French door entry – and the hallway leads into the open concept kitchen and family room.
Both spaces enjoy backyard views, and the kitchen’s breakfast area has a sliding door walk-out onto the deck. The breakfast area also features a contemporary light fixture, while both track and pendant lighting brightens the kitchen – which additionally showcases quartz counters; glass- and stone-tiled back splashes; modern cabinetry with molded uppers; a walk-in pantry; a large centre island with bar seating and a stainless steel double under mount sink; as well as stainless steel appliances. The family room has a ceiling fan, and two accent windows above built-in shelves that frame a gas fireplace and its mantle.
The staircase to the upper level, and the steps to the low mid-level landing, both are finished with dark hardwood treads and contrasting white risers – and a dark hardwood railing with wrought iron spindles carries with the staircase to the upper level. A large staircase window with California shutters allows natural light to brighten the upper landing.
This level is finished with crown moldings throughout; has hardwood flooring in the hallway and cozy broadloom in the four bedrooms; as well as ceramic flooring in the three washrooms and the laundry room. The third and fourth bedrooms have south-facing exposures, and the third bedroom has a double closet, while the fourth bedroom features a walk-in closet. These two rooms share the main 4-pc washroom, which has a wall-to-wall vanity and a ceramic-tiled bath area. The second bedroom has a large double closet, as well as its own 4-pc ensuite washroom – and is across the hall from the laundry room, which features a front load washer and dryer, a linen closet, cabinetry storage, and a stainless steel sink with a ceramic back splash.
The graciously sized master bedroom features a double door entry and a ceiling fan, and overlooks the backyard. Its walk-in closet is quite spacious, and this personal retreat also showcases an ensuite washroom with ceramic finishes, a vanity with built-in make-up desk, a corner tub, and a shower area with glass door and rain shower head.
Off the mid-level landing to the lower level is a powder room with a pedestal sink and beadboard, as well as access to the garage. The second tier of stairs to the lower level is carpeted, and carpeting brings cozy comfort throughout the huge recreation area.
