Gentility and repose are to be found on the 2.4 acre property at 1961 York Road, in Niagara-on-the-Lake. This stately home is placed securely at the foot of the Niagara Escarpment, and enjoys all of the benefits such an exceptional location provides, including a special harmony blending environment and architecture.
On approach, cedar hedges maintain privacy and the catalpa tree-lined driveway begin the gentle rise from the road and lead to the 6+ car parking area. The house rises from the land with grace and charming Tudor accents, the curved walk to the front French door providing warm welcome to visitors.
The entry sets the stage for the balance of the home’s theme; artful poise. From sunken parlor to formal dining to broad great room across the rear, proportions and finishes show the house’s excellent structure and design. The kitchen incorporates an additional dining area and access to the rear patio, the organically-shaped in-ground pool, and the covered hot tub retreat. The sun room provides an airy and charming year-round sanctuary, bringing the outside in.
Beyond the passageway desk and main-floor laundry, accessed from the main floor is the delightful in-law suite/studio tucked up over the two-car garage. Enjoy bright morning light, golden sundowns surrounded by nature while letting the cool breezes rolling off the escarpment to drift in through the casement windows.
A graceful curved staircase rises to the second floor, continued testimony to generous proportion and delightful surprises; a master suite complete with a walk-in closet, ensuite bath, and adjoining office with interior windows overlooking the foyer, and exterior windows overlooking the drive and lawn. Three additional bedrooms, each incorporating unique elements, including custom cabinetry, a semi-ensuite bath, a passage adjoining bedrooms 2 and 3 and a French door leading to a generously-sized view balcony.
The lower level of the home offers snug comfort; plush berber carpeting throughout, finished ceilings, and ample space for various uses.
The grounds are where this property truly shines. From inside the home, each window reveals a charming view; from the grounds, the vista is nothing short of spectacular.
Sitting in the rear yard gazebo is akin to being seated at the altar of a living cathedral; the mix of towering pines and soaring deciduous found in the mature Carolinian forest providing a lush haven for wildlife as it has for centuries. Easily seating 12, this skylight-topped pavilion is a perfect spot to look out across Lake Ontario and enjoy the twinkling lights of Toronto in the distance, or fireworks on holidays.
The hot tub enclosure provides a zen hideaway; a perfect mix of privacy and window to the escarpment. Watch the clouds launch themselves from the escarpment ridge and float overhead or the wildlife cross the expanse of lawn.
The side yard belvedere is a perfect spot to enjoy fair weather meals; morning coffee or entertain a small luncheon under the skylit roof, overlooking the neatly manicured front lawn.
