Welcome to 288 Jackson Avenue, a charming bungalow with some great updated features, and close to numerous amenities within Central Oshawa.
This home features a brick and stone exterior; ample driveway parking; concrete steps and a covered front entrance; a front yard with perennial beds; as well as a large fenced-in backyard that has an extensive wooden deck with gazebo, an outdoor storage shed, and a fire pit. This home has been freshly painted throughout, and also features a newer furnace with NEST thermostat.
The main level opens into a ceramic-tiled entrance hallway, off of which are two bedrooms finished with crown moldings and hardwood floors. The first (and larger) of these bedrooms is complete with a mirrored door double closet, while the second bedroom has a walk-in closet - and the south-facing windows in both rooms have California shutters for light control and privacy.
There is also a coat closet and access to the lower level off the hallway, as well as an updated 4-pc washroom with a ceramic-tiled floor and bath area, and a vanity area with plenty of toiletry and linen storage.
The hallway leads into the two principal spaces - a large eat-in kitchen and a family/living room - with a wall pass-thru maintaining an openness between the two rooms. The family room overlooks the backyard, and the kitchen features a cozy breakfast area, ample cabinetry and counter space, as well as appliances. California shutters are found on the two main windows, while the back door walk-out has between the glass blinds for privacy.
The lower level has a separate side door access, and this level has carpeting throughout its huge recreation area, as well a separate laundry and mechanical room that is partially carpeted and includes washer and dryer.
