About This Property

This home is a true beacon in the heart of Ancaster. Known as the ‘Pigott Estate’ and built in 1928, this is a stately New England Colonial that has been restored from top to bottom. This gorgeous property with all of its mature trees and gardens is 1.68 acres of private, manicured landscape highlighted by the gentle stream that runs along the edge. Deer and fox are known to visit regularly.

There is just under 7000 square feet of luxury living space in this family friendly home. The current homeowners have carefully focussed on period-detail, while beautifully appointing the high-end details and every modern amenity that an estate home like this should command. You will not find a home with more character and charm.

The high-end custom kitchen is equipped with Viking and SubZero appliances and features an exposed brick wall, a double porcelain farmer's sink, a 36" gas range, a wine fridge and a pantry. Gracious formal living and dining rooms provide exquisite entertaining spaces and fireplaces. The living room features walk-outs to the stone patio. The comfortable family room is adjacent to the kitchen and is uniquely finished in traditional Brazilian walnut wood panelling with custom built-in cabinetry, coffered ceiling and another fireplace. Laundry, a powder room, and an expansive mudroom complete the main level. Just outside the kitchen, the gardener in the family will love the greenhouse that comes equipped with a professional stainless steel counter and integral sink.

With an elegant stairway and landing, the second level surprises with no less than 5 bedrooms, a den and 4 full bathrooms. Hardwood flooring. Elegant bathrooms each with their own distinctive style. The master retreat is luxurious with exquisite details in the master ensuite : Statuario marble, heated floors, oversized separate shower, custom free-standing tub. Gorgeous. A second staircase takes you back to the family room.

It doesn't end here. Don't miss the 1,794 sf on the third floor in an incredible loft space with its own fireplace that could be office space, family gym space or perhaps even an area for teens to hangout. Anything your heart could desire.

The detached double car garage is connected to the home by a breezeway that protects in inclement weather, and also connects to unfinished loft space above the garage. This could be a nanny's own suite or perhaps a young adult's living space. Real potential. It is plumbed for a bathroom.

A private laneway from Wilson is shared with just 3 homes. The quaint shops of the Village of Ancaster are just a 5 minute walk. Easy access to Mcmaster University, to public transit and to the major highways will please commuters.

This magnificent estate home could be yours.
