Property Description

Architecturally inspired by Napoleon the Third era, this highly-stylized, recently renovated 3-storey Second Empire home is a wonder to behold. Built in 1875, the black and white design scheme dispersed throughout the remarkable dwelling is both classy and striking in its thematic presentation. Resting upon nearly two acres of land, the home cultivates a dynamic intensity from its exterior structural design. A very distinctive home in its construction and personality, it’s not every day that a dwelling with this sort of uniqueness is found within the Niagara Region. From room to room is immense character, a liveliness that is enrapturing. Ten foot ceilings, elegant century old pine floors, and walnut staircases are just a few of the features on display within this eclectic historical gem. Each room is a projection of the home’s identity, a masterfully crafted, meticulously produced work of art. Seven entrances, four porches, fenced private yard with pool, BBQ patio, and multitudes of mature trees surrounding the well-manicured emerald lawns provide ample opportunity to experience the serene, congenial landscape blanketing the grounds. With cardinals, blue jays and deer inhabiting the area, it’s easy to become lost in the tranquility these intimate moments conjure. Located in the heart of the countryside, the home embodies both the rural, rustic feel of the past and the modern, stylistic feel of the present. A dazzling achievement, this house is truly breathtaking.
