Welcome to 3796 Kennedy Road, a beautiful three bedroom brick bungalow with a wonderful cottage-like aura situated within the rural Township of Hamilton in Northumberland County.
Surrounded by a breathtaking forested landscape, this home features a double car garage with front and back man-doors, as well as driveway parking for up to six vehicles; front windows dressed with shutters, two which also have window boxes; a flagstone walkway lined with armour stones and perennial gardens, and a separate amour stone garden bed; a wood front deck with glass railing; a large front yard; and a lovely backyard retreat.
Evergreen and deciduous trees gives the south-facing backyard exceptional privacy, and across the length of the home is a tiered wood deck. The upper tier - which is directly accessible from the home - is covered by a roof with Cathedral ceiling, and a glass railing allows the forested views to remain unobstructed. The lower tier is U-shaped and wide open for sunshine brightness, has a hot tub, and is directly accessible from the garage - while perennials add greenery and colour three seasons long - and the backyard also has a storage shed with another small wood deck attached to it.
The front entry door is almost fully glass-panelled to capture the natural lighting of its north-facing exposure, and opens into a main level showcasing an open concept flow; tiled floors in the foyer, kitchen area, and washroom; hardwood floors in the family, living, and dining rooms, as well as the hallway to the bedrooms, and the bedrooms themselves; and crown moldings/or ceiling trims in the foyer, family room, and kitchen. There is also a coat closet in the foyer; both a pantry and a linen closet off the hallway; and the half wall along the carpeted stairs to the lower level is trimmed with oak hardwood.
The family room directly off the foyer showcases an oversized north-facing window to enjoy abundant natural lighting and views of the forest across the road, and has a panelled feature wall. The kitchen is bright, with a warm and homey feel that is combined with modern details creating a functional work area. Featuring ample counter space and cabinetry storage that includes a servery area, a wine rack, and open display shelves - the kitchen additionally features beadboard back splashes; industrial-style light fixtures; a dark double sink and faucet; a built-in dishwasher; as well as a stainless steel built-in microwave, range with smooth-surface cooktop and dual ovens, and a French door fridge with bottom mount freezer.
The combined living and dining rooms overlook the backyard and its gorgeous vistas - with this space having a vaulted ceiling with a wood cross beam and a fan; clerestory windows; and five sets of sliding glass doors allowing for natural light from the south, west, and east sides - with three of these opening directly (and safely) onto the backyard covered deck. **NOTE** The other two sets do not have exterior steps beneath them, and are currently intended for use as windows only.
The three bedrooms all have large windows, double closets, and ceiling fans - with the master bedroom also enjoying a bright south-facing exposure and backyard views. These bedrooms all share the main 4-pc washroom, which showcases a vanity with stone counter and under mount basin; a large window above the freestanding tub; a glass shower with tiled walls and a rainfall shower head; as well as built-in linen/toiletry shelves.
The lower level adds great living and utility space to the home. To the left of the staircase landing is a large recreation area, which has opaque-panelled sliding doors opening into an adjacent room - which is ideal as a hobby room or a bedroom (if needed) - with both of these spaces featuring laminate flooring and pot lighting, as well as oversized above grade windows. The utility area of this level feature easy care flooring in a laundry area with washer and dryer that is combined with storage space, and which also has a walk-up to the garage. There is also a large storage room, with more storage available in the furnace room - and to complete this level is a modern 3-pc washroom with a sliding barn door entry; a tiled floor, a corner shower with rounded glass enclosure, as well as a vanity with countertop basin and LED backlit mirror.
