A propos de cette propriété
The “Wexford House”, magnificent c 1883 estate, is often referred to as one of the most beautiful properties in Picton. Extensively renovated and restored, it beautifully retains much of its original grandeur and stately architectural details.
On a 3/4 acre of treed site, the residence sits well back from the road amidst other significant properties including the renowned Merrill Inn. Century old trees, gardens and evergreens grace the grounds, and the covered verandah that spans the front of the residence imparts a feeling of welcome.
The proportions and sequence of the rooms are in perfect harmony, from the elaborately detailed living and dining rooms that flank the grand foyer to the cozy family room, a wonderful sun-kissed solarium room with beautiful original windows, electric fireplace and tiled floors and incredible kitchen on the main level.
With elegant period archways, the impressive foyer is anchored by an elegant staircase reminiscent of “ Gone with the Wind”. Wexford House is graced with timeless millwork, 11 foot high ceilings, and three generous fireplaces. The entertaining spaces include a grand living room with dramatic bay window and gas fireplace, dining room with handsome wood burning fireplace, and ceilings accentuated with exquisite plaster mouldings.
The dining room can comfortably accommodate large family and formal dinner parties, with detailed fireplace and wood wainscotted millwork yet another example of its outstanding details.
Formal rooms give way to the comfort and spaciousness of the artfully designed and fully equipped modern Chef’s kitchen. Rich cabinetry contrasts beautifully with the custom granite countertops and the centre island, well planned as an excellent prep space for the serious chef, and provides an ideal backdrop for casual dining with family & friends. The kitchen has top of the line appliances: 36' gas 5 burner range , 2 built-in dishwashers, fully vented range hood, 48” refrigerator and two cold beverage drawers. A wall of glass & doors allows sun-light to illuminate the expansive kitchen and dining area and gives way to the side verandah, another entertaining area overlooking gardens. A coffee station, beverage bar and wine fridge is conveniently situated nearby.
The main staircase leads to the upper landing and bedroom level which is immensely comfortable, boasting private master quarters with deluxe ensuite and three additional generously sized guest bedrooms, another with ensuite plus a full luxury guest bath. A second staircase to the lower level provides easy access to the kitchen.
The grounds feature a circular drive, a 21/2 car coach style garage, extensive lawns with mature trees and shrubberies, patio and verandahs. With its rich history, the house exudes a sense of warmth, family and belonging. It has gracefully withstood the test of time and will remind you every day that you are living in a place like no other.
