“The sellers have been the original homeowners since the house was built in 1991. They have done an impeccable job of maintaining the home,” says listing agent Joanne Bolte. “It is close to very good schools, including French immersion, walking trails, major highways and places of worship.
“It is a few minutes drive to Willow Brook Stables, where there is horseback riding lessons and boarding available. It is also short drive to the famous Port Restaurant and Pickering Town Centre.
“Driving from the west, the winding road of Twyn Rivers Dr. is very scenic, where often deer and other wildlife are visible,” Bolte says.
