A beautiful 4+1 bedroom John Boddy home nestled within the highly sought-after Pickering Village neighbourhood of Central West Ajax, welcome to 60 Dennis Drive.
With over 2,300 sq. ft. of main and upper level living space, plus a partially finished lower level - this home also features a beautifully landscaped backyard retreat; a double car garage with opener and three remotes; and wonderful curb appeal with its brick exterior, front yard greenery, and an interlocking walkway to an arched covered entrance.
Through the front entry door is a spacious ceramic-tiled foyer with a mirrored door double coat closet, and a main level showcasing elegant principal rooms and an open concept flow that is an entertainer’s delight. Two entries off the hallway - one graced with decor columns - lead into the combined living and dining rooms, where two accent windows and a bay window on the turret wall allow natural light to spill into these beautiful entertaining spaces. Enhancing their natural brightness is a light, yet neutral colour palette, while the dining room has the added ambiance of a contemporary chandelier accented with a ceiling medallion. Their gleaming hardwood flooring flows throughout the reception hall, and into a sunken family room with a northwesterly exposure and backyard views. Two accent windows allow for more natural lighting, and frame a gas fireplace surrounded by brick, and finished with a wood mantle shelf and a tiled hearth.
Adjacent to the family room is the light-washed breakfast area, and the bright working space of the gourmet kitchen - both finished with ceramic flooring. The kitchen showcases abundant cabinetry storage, with a wall pantry and a built-in chef’s desk; is complete with a stainless steel French door fridge, stove with dual ovens, dishwasher, and a double sink; its tumbled marble back splash complements the earthen tones of the cabinetry; and has wonderful counter space with its U-shaped design - while pot, pendant, and under cabinet lighting enhance its brightness. A contemporary light fixture hangs above the breakfast area, where an oversized window offers beautiful views of a fenced-in backyard retreat landscaped with trees, shrubs, and perennial gardens that can be enjoyed while sitting on a large deck covered by a pergola. To both the upper and lower levels are carpeted staircases - with the upper staircase, as well as the main and upper hallways, showcasing hardwood railings accented with white spindles - with the upper level featuring hardwood flooring in the hallway; four naturally bright and spacious bedrooms - all with cozy broadloom; as well as two 5-pc washrooms.
The fourth bedroom has a double closet, and both this and the third bedroom enjoy backyard views. The second bedroom, which is directly off the staircase landing, also has a double closet, as well as a sun-washed southeasterly exposure - and these bedrooms share the common-use 5-pc washroom, which features vinyl flooring, a tiled bath and shower area, and a vanity with drop-in basins. Very generously sized, the master suite showcases a turret wall with three large windows, maximizing the natural brightness of its southeasterly exposure. This bedroom also has an octagonal-shaped accent window, ample space for a sitting area, and a walk-in closet - while its luxurious, spa-like 5-pc ensuite washroom showcases tiled finishes; a glass shower with mosaic glass accents, wall niches, a corner seat, and a spa system; a soaker tub; as well as a beautiful furniture-style vanity with a stone counter and under mount basins.
This home also features blinds on most of its windows that offer light diffusion and/or privacy; includes an upright freezer, an additional fridge, as well as a central vacuum system with equipment; and on the main level - adjacent to the lower level staircase - is a powder room with ceramic flooring, as well as a laundry and mud room with vinyl flooring, a front load washer and dryer, cabinetry and closet storage, access to the garage, and a side door for access to the front and back yards.
Partially finished, the lower level features a massive storage area that has amazing potential for conversion into recreational and entertaining space; a large bedroom with an egress window, cozy broadloom, and a mirrored door double closet; as well as a 4-pc washroom with a tiled floor, an acrylic bath and shower area, and a vanity with accent pot lighting.
A short walk to Eagle Ridge Public and Pickering High Schools, the Duffins Creek Conservation Area, and the historic heart of Pickering Village with its boutique shopping and fine restaurants - this home is also close to the Riverside Golf Course - while the Durham Centre and SmartCentres Pickering shopping plazas, the GO Station, and access to Hwys 401 and the 407 are all just short drives away.
