A stunning and incredibly spacious home situated on a prestigious street within Pickering’s highly desired Dunbarton neighbourhood, welcome to 1880 Spruce Hill Road. A stone and brick exterior, as well as beautifully landscaped front perennial gardens, gives this home amazing curb appeal - and other exterior features include a two car garage with ample driveway parking, a superb backyard oasis, as well as an interlocking walkway and stone steps to the covered front entry. Double front entrance doors with leaded glass inserts open into a grand reception foyer, and which is finished with 26” x 26” upgraded ceramic tiles that are continued into the kitchen and utility spaces.

These elegant entertaining spaces are finished with hardwood floors and crown moldings, have large windows for abundant natural light, and an arched entry between the rooms - with the dining area having the additional elegance of a molded coffered ceiling and a contemporary chandelier. Hardwood staircases lead to both the upper and lower levels, and down a side hallway adjacent to the lower staircase is a French door entry into a private room with hardwood floors, and ideal as a home office or den. Hardwood floors are also found in a graciously sized family room warmed by a gas fireplace with custom wood mantle, finished with crown moldings, and bathed in light through its west-facing windows. A superb work and family space, the stunning custom kitchen showcases a centre island with breakfast seating; granite countertops and tumbled marble back splashes; a stained glass accent window; cabinetry with molded uppers, valance lighting, and a stand-alone pantry; as well as high end stainless steel appliances. The spaciousness of its breakfast area is enhanced with a Cathedral ceiling and a wall of west-facing windows - and from here is a walk-out to the gorgeous backyard oasis. Fully fenced, the backyard's large wooden deck has plenty of dining and relaxation space, including a separate sitting area under a pergola, as well as a hot tub for year round enjoyment. Surrounded by an interlocking deck is a heated in-ground pool - and this retreat is complete with a cabana on a concrete pad, landscaped perennial gardens, and a majestic shade tree. Other features of the main level include extra-deep baseboards; contemporary ceiling light fixtures and pot lighting; as well as California shutters or silhouette privacy shades on the windows - while down a side hallway off the foyer, and completing the main level, is a coat closet; a mud room; and a beautifully finished powder room.

The second bedroom also features windows with California shutters, as well as a large double closet with organizers and its own private 4-pc ensuite washroom. This level also has a convenient laundry room, which has a ceramic-tiled floor, as well as a front load washer and dryer.

SIMPLE LIFE HACKS FOR EVERY DAY These life hacks and tricks are gonna be unexpectedly helpful in numerous life situations. If you often use eyewear you'll like these hacks. If your glasses often fogging up, I advise you to rub some plain soap into the glasses and then wipe it up with a napkin as usual. When your eyeglasses keep slipping down, take two rubber bands, tie them round the temples of the glasses. That's it, no more slipping down! If you're just trying to pick up a new pair of glasses or buying eyewear for the first time, don't forget to take the table test. Simply put the eyeglasses right on the table and then carefully look at the glasses' temple tips, whether they both reach the table surface or not. If not, it means the temple tips are of different length! It may cause a lot of discomfort while wearing them. In case you have high myopia of −6.00 diopters or more and accidentally lost your eyewear on the working desk. Grab your phone, turn on the camera and zoom in on the table surface until you see your glasses. Another nasty problem every four-eyed probably faced - scratches on the lenses. Put some toothpaste on the lens and rub it in. Did you know how handy plastic bags can be? You can use them as a smartphone case to protect your gadget from the damp and sand when you take it to the beach with you. You can cook an awesome puffy omelet using plastic bag as well!

Welcome to 557 Marksbury Road, a magnificent custom-built executive home situated within the high demand West Shore community of Pickering.
With superb finishes inside and out, a custom 8’ x 6’ fibreglass double front entry is accented with wrought iron inserts and complete with a European 3-bolt locking system, opening into a home showcasing Canadian-made hardwood flooring; waffled ceilings; exquisite crown moldings and trims; high-end contemporary light fixtures and over 100 LED pot lights - as well as generously sized principal rooms and beautifully appointed private spaces.
An entertainer’s dream home - its open concept design, and ease of flow between the formal and informal rooms, can easily accommodate large gatherings - yet is also perfect for intimate get-togethers, especially in the family room, which has the added warmth of a gas fireplace.
A showpiece of luxurious design and craftsmanship, the kitchen is complete with custom cabinetry accented by LED under mount and interior lighting; an exquisitely tiled back splash and quartz countertops; a centre island with vegetable sink and bar fridge; and high end appliances including a custom fridge/freezer, an induction cooktop, as well as built-in dishwasher, wall oven, and microwave - and off the kitchen is a well-designed laundry and mud room with a walk-in pantry, built-in cabinetry, access to the garage, and front load washer and dryer.
Between the kitchen and family room is the garden door walk-out onto a large stone patio with custom tempered glass and aluminum railing that steps down to another extensive stone patio in the backyard - and taking advantage of the abundance of warm natural lighting, throughout the home are oversized windows finished with custom Hunter Douglas window treatments for additional privacy.
This home has two master suites - the first through a double door entry off the reception hall. This luxurious sized retreat features a walk-in closet with custom organizers; as well as a stunning 5-pc ensuite washroom. Both this washroom and the second level master ensuite have heated tiled floors - while all the washrooms showcase custom cabinetry, quartz counters, as well as high-end Riobel vanity and shower fixtures.
A Hollywood-style open-tread hardwood staircase with wrought iron pickets leads to the upper level, where a grand open concept hallway leads to a second family room, gives access to four bedrooms, and to a second laundry room with front load washer and dryer as well as cabinetry and closet storage.
The family bedrooms are quite generously sized and naturally bright - with the second bedroom showcasing a 14’ x 14’ walk-in closet and dressing room with custom organizers. This bedroom has its own access to a 5-pc Jack-and-Jill washroom, which it shares with the third bedroom. This bedroom, as well as the fourth bedroom, both have large double closets and windows with transoms, while the fourth bedroom additionally features a double door entry.
The upper level family room is warmed by a gas fireplace with stacked stone cladding, and has a walk-out onto a balcony with glass and aluminum railing that has backyard and lake views. A great informal entertaining space, this room also features a wet bar, and access to the common-use 4-pc washroom.
The second master suite is exceptionally sized, has a double door entry, a 14’ x 14’ walk-in closet and dressing room with custom organizers, as well as plenty of space for a sitting area - while behind a sliding barn-style entry door is a beautifully finished 4-pc washroom.
This home is smart-wired throughout, has 200 AMP service, two furnaces, and the entire property has closed circuit surveillance cameras. Extensively and professionally landscaped with an irrigation system for the lawns and perennial gardens, there is also a gas barbecue line in the backyard - and the home is complete with both an attached heated single car garage and a rear detached double garage with its own 60 AMP service panel, as well exterior driveway parking for up to 12 vehicles in total.
Fully, and beautifully finished, the lower level features a cedar-lined custom wine cellar across from the staircase landing, lots of storage, a luxurious 3-pc washroom, a full custom kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a huge 8’ x 30’ cold room with sink, as well as a wonderful open concept flow and design with abundant space for recreational and family use - and there is also a walk-out up to the backyard.
Well-situated, this stunning executive home is walking distance to highly rated Frenchman’s Bay Public School, as well as the West Shore Beach and walking trails of Rotary Frenchman’s Bay West Park.
