Property Description

Once a hot spot for wealthy Americans to summer, Cobourg is known as the 'Gem of Lake Ontario' and is home to a beloved group of local, trophy heritage properties built in the 19th century. Just a little over an hour from Toronto by car or train, 198 Bagot Street or 'Avalon' as it was crowned, is located in the West Heritage neighbourhood in downtown Cobourg.

Built in the 'French-Villa' style in 1874, Avalon embodies upscale, refined finishes while preserving the classic, architectural integrity and style of the period. The home was last acquired in 2011 and was artfully reimagined for a transitional aesthete, while respectfully paying homage to its rich heritage. This one-of-a-kind property has only been in the hands of a few owners, including Cobourg physician Dr. Ian Shaw who used 198 Bagot Street as his medical office (1950s-1990s). The previous owner, who purchased Avalon from Dr. Shaw, used decorative glass panels from his medical cabinet to adorn several windows in the house, which are still there today.

The prominent curb appeal, with perfectly manicured open spaces and gardens, are an idyllic setting for seasonal decorations, to the delight of passersby. A welcoming veranda is perfect to say hello to neighbors and friends or to host lively conversation by candlelight on blissfully warm evenings under the stars. The traditional interior features multiple entertaining, work and family spaces. A third level loft affords a new proprietor the opportunity to finish in their own style, adding additional live or work space inside this Grand Dame.

For those who covet timeless sophistication, Avalon deserves an equally distinguished new steward to carry on its proud legacy.
