On a quiet cul-de-sac, and nestled on a hilltop overlooking a ravine setting, welcome to 9458 Hutsell Road, a gorgeous raised bungalow within Hamilton Township’s Baltimore community in Northumberland County.
This sprawling 2 acre property is surrounded by trees and features manicured lawns; an extensive stone retaining wall; back and side yard perennial landscaping; as well as a walking trail from the backyard, throughout the wooded area, and leading to an open clearing with a fire pit in the northeast corner.
The home itself has been meticulously maintained, and showcases three rooftop dormer windows; an interlocking stone walkway to a covered front porch lined with landscaped perennial gardens; a backyard deck with glass railing that steps down to a concrete patio area; a two car garage, with an additional detached two car garage joined to the main household by a covered breezeway; as well as an extensive driveway, recently resealed, that offers abundant outdoor parking.
The main level features cherry hardwood and ceramic tiled floors, as well as broadloom - with finishing details such as crown moldings, upgraded door and window trims, as well as pot lighting throughout, and elegant light fixtures in foyer, kitchen, and dining room.
The entrance foyer has a large double coat closet, and directly above is an alcove with a south-facing window bringing bright natural light into the home. Immediately to the right is a formal dining room featuring a tray ceiling and a south-facing window with elegant draperies - while adjacent to the coat closet is a French door entry into a cozy den, also with a south-facing exposure.
The foyer leads directly into the open concept living room - a wonderful entertaining space with a warm and inviting atmosphere. Oversized windows with transoms allow for beautiful views of the backyard greenery, and this room centres itself around a gas fireplace surrounded by stone and with a wood mantle. Adjacent to the living room is the kitchen - which are separated by a peninsula with a raised breakfast bar and stainless steel double under mount sink. The kitchen also features granite countertops and a tumbled marble back splash; cabinetry with molded uppers, valance lighting, and a separate walk-in pantry; as well as stainless steel appliances. Its breakfast area has three oversized windows flooding light into these rooms, and off the kitchen is a French door walk-out onto the backyard deck.
The west wing of the home, found just off the living room, features a large bedroom with a double closet and a walk-out onto the deck; a 4-pc washroom with ceramic-tiled floor and bath area; as well as a large linen closet - making this an ideal guest space.
A side hallway leads to the east wing of the home. Down this hall is a secondary double coat closet; a large laundry room with counter work space and lots of cabinetry storage; access to the attached garage; and a 2-pc powder room with a pedestal sink.
At the end of the hallway is the master suite. This private space features a bedroom with an oversized window and views of the backyard greenery, as well as a spacious walk-in closet. In the northeast corner is a French door entry into a bonus space that can be used as a home office, a sitting room, or a nursery. Completing this retreat is a 5-pc ensuite washroom with ceramic tiles throughout, a vanity with his-and-her basins and toiletry storage cabinets, a jetted corner tub, as well as an oversized glass shower with body jets.
An open tread hardwood staircase leads down to the lower level family recreation room. Finished with cozy broadloom, pot lighting, and crown moldings - this room has a garden door walk-out to the side yard, and above grade windows allowing for plenty of natural light. Off this space is a huge room perfect for additional pantry and household storage, and which has access to a large cold cellar. Past the family room is a secondary recreation space with broadloom, pot lighting, as well as above grade windows - and which is well-suited as a work-out area, a games room, or a media room. Off this space is a bonus room with cozy broadloom and a closet, ideal as a private home office, hobby/crafts room, or a bedroom; a 2-pc powder room with a ceramic-tiled floor and a stone-topped vanity; a mechanical/storage room; as well as a huge unfinished space that is perfect as a workshop.
