A beautifully maintained 2+1 bedroom brick bungalow with three washrooms nestled in the family-minded Samac neighbourhood of northeast Oshawa, welcome to 799 Coldstream Drive.
The front door, its sidelight, and arched transom are accented with decorative glass inserts - and open into a tiled foyer with direct access to the garage, as well as carpeted split staircases to the main and lower levels.
Hardwood flooring flows throughout the main hallway, which is brightened by a timeless chandelier - and into the open concept entertaining spaces, where a modern chandelier illuminates the dining area - and an east-facing window here, as well as north-facing windows in the living area, flood these combined rooms with natural light. A hardwood railing maintains an openness between the foyer and the living room, with light from the foyer’s chandelier and through the front entrance also spilling into these spaces - and for added coziness, a wood-burning brick fireplace spreads warmth throughout.
The kitchen and its breakfast area are finished with ceramic flooring, and have ceiling panel lighting as well as a crystal and metal flush mount light fixture to complement the natural light through a south-facing sliding door walk-out, and through the east-facing window above the stainless steel double sink. Warm and inviting, the kitchen features beautiful oak cabinetry with ample storage; a centre island with seating that also provides additional counter working space; a stone-tiled back splash; and appliances including a built-in microwave and dishwasher, oven with smooth surface cooktop, as well as a side-by-side fridge/freezer. The walk-out opens onto a raised deck overlooking the backyard - and in addition to the kitchen’s cabinetry storage, there is also a double-sized pantry closet across the hall.
The main level also features a double coat closet with mirrored doors; a linen closet; as well as two bedrooms and two washrooms - with the second bedroom featuring a west-facing window, a single closet, and broadloom for cozy comfort - while the main 4-pc washroom features a ceramic-tiled floor and bath area.
The graciously sized and naturally bright master bedroom also has broadloom for cozy comfort, and additionally features a ceiling fan, a large south-facing window - and a 4-pc ensuite washroom with ceramic finishes throughout, a walk-in shower area, as well as a separate soaker tub - and to complete this lovely personal retreat are two very spacious double closets along its east wall.
This home also features front garden beds filled with shrubs for seasonal and year-round greenery; a driveway that can accommodate four vehicle parking in addition to the one-and-a-half-car garage; as well as a finished walk-out lower level with a separate entrance from the backyard that not only offers additional family living space, but also has potential for full conversion into an in-law suite.
Ceramic flooring throughout its wide hallway is continued into the kitchen area, and into a 3-pc washroom with a ceramic-tiled walk-in shower area, a Euro vanity, and a storage closet. Across from the washroom is a nook with an existing salon sink that can be converted into a wet bar; there is an open area with laminate flooring and a double closet can be renovated into a bedroom; the sliding door walk-out opens onto a partially covered interlocking patio area; and the kitchen area has existing cabinetry, a fridge, and stove, great potential for future development - and with its generous size, can also accommodate a dining area.
This level additionally features oversized above grade windows; a combined furnace and laundry room with washer and dryer, as well as storage space; and there is more storage available under the stairs - and this level would not be complete without a very spacious, yet very cozy, family recreation area featuring broadloom, track lighting, and the warmth of a wood burning brick fireplace.
A short walk to numerous parks, Sherwood and Jeanne Sauvé Public Schools, St. John Bosco Catholic Elementary School, and Maxwell Heights Secondary School - as well as walking distance to the SmartCentres Oshawa North shopping mall, and a wide variety of shops, restaurants, and services along Taunton Road - this home is also just a short drive to Ontario Tech University and Durham College campuses, the Cedar Valley and Harmony Valley Conservation Areas, golf courses, the GO and VIA Rail Stations, and for access to Hwys 401 and the 407.

Oshawa is in the Regional Municipality of Durham. It is on the Lake Ontario shoreline, approximately 60 kilometres east of Toronto. Oshawa is often viewed as the eastern anchor of the Greater Toronto Area and the Golden Horseshoe.
Oshawa has huge ties to the automotive industry because it is the location of the General Motors plant. Oshawa is the self-proclaimed Auto Capital of Canada. The city plays host to three post-secondary institutions (Durham College, Trent University and University of Ontario Institute of Technology).
The name Oshawa comes from the Ojibwaa term aazhaway meaning just across or the crossing place.
It is believed that Oshawa began as a transfer point for the fur trade. Furs were transported via canoe by the Mississauga Indians at the Oshawa harbor and sent to the trading posts located to the west near the mouth of the Credit River.
Oshawa was incorporated as a village in 1850. The village became an industrial centre with tanneries, asheries, and wagon factories. Oshawa also became heavily associated with the automotive industry as the General Motors plant made this city its home.
In 1822, a “colonization road” known as Simcoe St. was constructed. This road facilitated settlement into the area. The road followed a path of an old native trail known as the Nonquon Road. Oshawa was home to many factories and had a great connection to local areas through the rail service that was offered.
Oshawa offers vibrant and dynamic cultural projects and programming. It is a very creative community with various festivals and events, performing arts, history and heritage exhibits and galleries and public art.
Oshawa offers several parks and trails, which provide you with an opportunity to participate in physical activities such as walking, running, cycling, and more. The city is also home to a number of natural areas that are perfect for taking in the beauty of nature.
Downtown Oshawa is a mix of culture, business, entertainment and academic. It is a beautiful place where people can work, learn, play and meet for drinks and exceptional food.
