Welcome to 14125 Lake Ridge Road**, a beautiful rural property with a charming, light-filled century home nestled within the picturesque community of Sunderland, in the Township of Brock in north Durham Region.
The original homestead was built in the late 1890s, and the home (as it is today) still retains much of its original character – including original door and window trims, original staircase and bannister, as well as original crown moldings, wall trimmings, and baseboards.
Stone steps lead up to the stately front entryway, which opens into a main level showcasing laminate, hardwood, broadloom, and ceramic flooring.
Off the foyer, and to the right, is a large formal living room finished with wainscoting, a gas fireplace with custom mantle, and oversized windows with views of the front, side and back yards – with a graceful archway separating the room into two distinct conversation areas.
To the left of the foyer is the formal dining room, an elegant entertaining space finished with chair rail, a traditional light fixture with medallion, built-in china cabinet – and off the dining area is a private home office finished with hardwood floors.
A well appointed powder room is privately nestled away from the principal living spaces, off a side hallway which has also additional household storage cabinets.
The open concept kitchen features laminate floors; an abundance of wood cabinetry with built-in pantries and a servery area; plenty of counter space; stainless steel appliances; and large windows with views of the outdoor gardens.
Beyond the kitchen is a family room showcasing an oak hardwood floor; a beamed ceiling with fan; stucco walls; a brick accent wall with wood burning stove; and a sliding door walk-out to an enclosed sunroom overlooking the backyard.
The main level master bedroom showcases wooden doors and trim, a pine floor, beamed ceiling with fan, as well as a gas fireplace with brick surround, wood mantle, and built-in wood shelving units flanking the fireplace. There is also a sliding door walk-out for access to the yards and pool area. The bedroom’s carpeted dressing area has two double closets, two single closets, a walk-in closet, a skylight, and space for a makeup vanity – while its 5-pc ensuite is complete with a tiled floor, a wall-to-wall vanity with his and her under mount basins, wall-to-wall mirror, separate bath and shower areas, and an overhead heat lamp.
Completing the main level is a mud room with a secondary entrance from the side of the home, and featuring wood paneled walls; a built-in bench; access to the 4-car garage; as well as a coat closet and access to the unfinished lower level.
The staircase to the upper level is fully carpeted, and carpeting is also found throughout this level, which features two bedrooms with his and her double closets; a third bedroom with a large single closet; as well as a 5-pc washroom with his and her under mount basins in the vanity, as well as a bath and shower area with sliding glass door.
Exterior features include an in-ground heated concrete pool with stone patio and landscaped surroundings; landscaped yards throughout; a barn; a detached 3-car garage plus a 4-car garage attached to the home; and an extra long driveway with plenty of outdoor parking.
Beautifully situated within a rural setting, this home is within the catchment areas of Sunderland Public and Brock High Schools; Holy Family Catholic Elementary and Msgr. Paul Dwyer Catholic High Schools; as well as McCaskill’s Mill Public School in Cannington and Port Perry High School for French Immersion programs – and for most shopping and professional service needs, Sunderland as well as the larger urban centres of Uxbridge and Port Perry are 5, 15, and 25 minute drives away (respectively).
