Nestled on a quiet court minutes from Rouge National Urban Park, on a premium sized lot that is almost 200’ deep - welcome to 217 Wilcroft Court, a well-maintained three bedroom home with four washrooms situated within West Pickering’s very desirable Highbush neighbourhood.
Landscaped front and back, and enjoying a wonderful sense of privacy - the home has a pool-sized backyard retreat shaded by a gorgeous, mature maple tree; while mature evergreens and shade trees line the driveway, which can accommodate parking for up to ten vehicles, in addition to the attached single car garage.
Interlocking stone wraps around from the front of the garage to the main entrance - which opens into a slate-tiled foyer of a main level with warm and inviting principal rooms, all showcasing beautiful finishing details.
Throughout these rooms and the main hallway is the richness of plank hardwood flooring - with the dining room showcasing a custom built-in oak wall cabinet, as well as oak crown moldings, the crown molding having been continued into the adjacent living room. Here, a north-facing bay window allows for diffused natural light, while the contemporary farmhouse chandelier in the dining area enhances the warm ambiance of these elegant entertaining spaces.
The entire main level also features deep baseboards - while crown moldings, pot lighting, and chair rail elegantly finish the foyer, main hallway, and the family room - which is fully open to this home’s new kitchen, and with both of these spaces enjoying south-facing exposures.
The bright, modern design of the kitchen showcases cabinetry with accent lighting; quartz counters and a brick back splash; as well as a stainless steel double wide under mount sink, built-in microwave and dishwasher, oven with smooth surface cooktop, and a French door fridge - and bathed in light through a bay window is a cozy breakfast area, which overlooks the backyard.
Off the family room is a sliding door walk-out complete with interior blinds to the backyard - which opens onto a large, newly stained custom cedar entertaining deck that has privacy lattice on its west and east sides - and which overlooks a pool-sized yard with a storage shed, and a lovely sitting area under the shade of the maple tree.
The main level also features a powder room with a slate-tiled floor, chair rail, and a vanity with an elegant drop-in basin; and the foyer has a mirrored door double closet, a secondary side entrance into the home, and a staircase with an oak hardwood railing to the upper level - this level showcasing three naturally bright bedrooms, two washrooms, and a laundry area.
The main 4-pc washroom features a tiled floor and bath area, its updated vanity having a countertop basin and upgraded lighting; the carpeted second and third bedrooms have good-sized south-facing windows, space for study areas, and double closet with mirrored doors; and the laundry area has an LG front load washer and dryer with a folding counter above them.
The hallway’s plank hardwood flooring is also showcased in the lovely master suite - which has a sitting area by its bay window; a spacious 4-pc ensuite washroom with a tiled floor, a tiled bath and shower area, as well as a vanity with upgraded lighting; and the bedroom also features a wall-to-wall closet with mirrored doors.
The fully finished lower level features a cold room and storage under the staircase - and this level, with its open concept layout, offers exceptional living and entertaining space, while also having future potential for conversion into a basement suite.
Featuring broadloom, oak trims and baseboards, pot lighting, and a 2-pc washroom - the large recreation area has two distinct spaces: a family media room showcasing a custom built-in oak wall unit with a gas fireplace; while the games room has an oak storage cabinet and wall ledge - the built-in wall unit on this level, and the wall cabinet in the main level dining room, customized by a Red Seal certified carpenter.

In the fifteenth century, Pickering was home to the Aboriginal group known as the Huron. European settlement began in the area in the early seventeenth century, with most early British settlers moving into the area after defeating the French in the Seven Years’ War. The British named the town Pickering after the town in North Yorkshire, England.
In the early 1810s, there was a large increase of settlement from a large group of Quaker immigrants that came to the area from the Eastern United States. More recently, Toronto’s continuing growth has led to Pickering’s rapid growth.
