A wonderful family home situated within the Village East community of Pickering, welcome to 1525 Beechlawn Drive.
A brick home with an attached garage and driveway parking for up to four vehicles, an interlocking walkway leads to an enclosed mud room with direct access to the garage. Through a front door with keypad entry is a spacious ceramic-tiled foyer with a mirrored door coat closet, and which opens into naturally bright principal rooms.
Showcasing dark hardwood flooring, and with an openness to each other, are two distinct entertaining spaces – with the first, and larger of these rooms, beautifully suited as a formal living room finished with elegant crown moldings. Soft colour palettes, large windows for abundant natural light, as well as French door-style interior window walls enhance the airy feel of these spaces – and the second room is ideal as a casual family room, or as an intimate dining area, with a floor-to-ceiling corner brick fireplace.
The foyer’s ceramic flooring flows into the kitchen, a sophisticated work space with room for a cozy breakfast area, and showcasing a granite counter with double sink; a stone- and glass-tiled back splash; stainless steel fridge with bottom mount freezer and an oven with gas cooktop; as well as plenty of cabinetry storage, including a wall pantry. The sliding door walk-out opens onto large wood deck with built-in planters, and there is plenty of play or gardening space in the fenced-in backyard.
A powder room is nestled off the main hall, and the dark stained hardwood staircase leads to an upper level featuring hardwood flooring in the hallway, three bedrooms, and two washrooms.
The graciously sized second and third bedrooms have east-facing exposures for beautiful morning brightness, are finished with cozy carpeting, and both have double closets – and these bedrooms share a 4-pc main washroom with a ceramic-tiled floor and bath area, as well as a granite-topped vanity with under mount basin. The master bedroom has a wonderful west-facing exposure and is also carpeted, as well as additionally featuring his-and-her double closets and a 4-pc ensuite washroom with a ceramic-tiled floor and bath area, and furniture style vanity with an integrated glass counter and basin.
Families have numerous schools to choose from, and this home is within the catchment areas of Lincoln Alexander Public School and St. Wilfrid Catholic Elementary School – as well as Sir John A. McDonald Public School, St. Isaac Jogues Catholic Elementary School, Pickering High School, and St. Mary Catholic Secondary School for their French Immersion programs.
The lower level has its own separate side door entrance, and offers additional family living space, as well as being ideal as an in-law suite. Off the ceramic-tiled landing is a large cold room and a laundry area with front load washer and dryer – with the ceramic flooring continuing into a kitchen with fridge, stove, double sink, and ample cabinetry storage. This level also features a recreation area and a large bedroom with carpeting, as well as a 3-pc washroom with ceramic flooring and a glass shower area.
Just steps away from a neighbourhood park and public transit, this home is walking distance to the SmartCentres Pickering for grocery stores, big box shopping, and restaurants; has quick access to Hwy 401; and it’s just a short drive to the Pickering Town Centre, the Pickering Recreation Complex, and the GO Station.
