Welcome to 1025 Lake Drive North, a beautiful four bedroom home just steps away from Lake Simcoe, and situated in Island Grove within the Historic Lakeshore community of Georgina.
Built less than 7 years ago, this home features vinyl siding with wraparound stone detailing; an extra long driveway to the rear of the property, which allows for 4 additional exterior parking spots along with 3-car parking in an attached, oversized, and insulated garage; landscaped front gardens with lush perennial from spring to late fall; a covered front porch extending the width of the home, with a front entry door complete with transom and sidelights; large casement windows (some which have transoms) and multiple exposures for an abundance of natural light throughout the home; as well as a spacious unspoiled basement awaiting your creative finishing.
A soft neutral colour palette enhances the home’s light, airy feel - and the main level showcases oak hardwood floors in the open concept living and dining rooms, while 17” x 17” tiles are found in the front foyer, the kitchen and its adjacent breakfast area, the powder room, and the laundry room. An exquisite chandelier in the breakfast room, as well as gorgeous flush mount and pendant lighting in the kitchen, add beautiful ambient brightness to these spaces.
Exceptionally sized entertaining spaces, the formal living and dining room are warmed by a gas fireplace, and there is a walk-out onto the front porch that extends the entertaining to the outdoors during the warm weather months. French pocket doors open to the kitchen, and a French door leads into the breakfast room - elegant entries that also maintain semi-privacy from these busy family spaces. The kitchen showcases gorgeous maple cabinetry with molded uppers, valance lighting, and lots of pantry storage; a large centre island with stainless steel double under mount sink and breakfast seating; granite countertops; as well as stainless steel appliances including a side-by-side fridge/freezer, dual fuel range with griddle, microwave, and built-in dishwasher. The adjacent breakfast room has a gas fireplace which adds cozy warmth to these family spaces, and there is a garden door walk-out that provides access to both the front and back yards.
A hallway off the breakfast area leads to a well-appointed powder room, and through another French door is access to the garage, and also a laundry room that is equipped with front load washer and dryer, cabinetry and closet storage, as well as a stainless steel sink.
An oak hardwood staircase leads to the upper level, and oak hardwood floors finish the the hallway, while broadloom adds cozy underfoot warmth and comfort in all four bedrooms. The first of the four bedrooms has its own 3-pc ensuite washroom, which features a tiled floor, a maple vanity, as well as an oversized tiled shower area - while the second and the third bedrooms share access to a Jack-and-Jill washroom also showcasing a maple vanity as well as a freestanding clawfoot tub. The second bedroom additionally features a double door entry and a large double closet, and completing the common area of this level is a large double linen closet.
The spacious master suite features a walk-out onto a covered balcony that overlooks the front yard and gardens, and from which lake views and sunsets can also be enjoyed. A gas fireplace spreads cozy warmth throughout the bedroom on cool evenings and during the cold winter months - and this retreat also showcases his and her walk-in closets, as well as an ensuite washroom with his and her basins in the maple vanity; a tiled floor; a freestanding clawfoot tub with an overhead oval shower curtain rod; and a separate walk-in shower.
