About This Property


Exquisitely, c1836 “Silverstone House” offers an incomparable piece of history. Originally built as a Stage Coach Inn by John Counter, the first Mayor of the City of Kingston, the limestone residence has been artfully restored, meticulously renovated and professionally decorated throughout, engaging the very heart and soul. A substantial two level stone addition was constructed in the 1960’s, providing a sophisticated, sunlit commercial component to the property. Presently housing an interior design & architecture studio, the airy space is the perfect backdrop for a plethora of uses, including an inn, B&B or spa, art gallery, physician or professional offices, retail space, clinic, home operation, antique shop, interior design studio, etc

Located within 15 minutes of the downtown core of Kingston, the property is sited on the north-west corner of Sydenham & Burbrook Roads, offering high profile exposure for the office/commercial/retail wing.

Upon approach, one is captivated by the stately presence of the front of the limestone manor, boasting 8 symmetrical windows and a handsome original entrance door with glass light and transom above. Towering trees, a board & batten detached garage and a private stone wall surround the grounds and “English gardens” obscuring the street view.
