A home with pedigree.
This classic Georgian Revival is a landmark in this coveted West Galt neighbourhood. Prominently set back from the street, on 2.96 acres, this estate home is a rare find. The elegant formal rooms belie the fact that this is a true family home. It is easy to envision a gracious lifestyle here - the spacious layout offers room for entertaining formally or informally, for family time, yet also provides for quiet time in various nooks and crannies. Large windows throughout the home offer incredible views in all directions - to the back garden, to both of the stone patios, to the tree-lined street with the charming historic lamps.
The dining room with the first of two distinctive bay windows opens to the magnificent back terrace overlooking what is unusual about this home - acreage in the centre of town. Picture yourself with your loved ones, drink in hand, enjoying the sunset at the end of the day. The wood-panelled den, with the second of the bay windows and one of the 3 wood-burning fireplaces is the family's favourite spot. The large eat-in kitchen is bright and sunny with a side door entry for family and the dining patio, and the back staircase. The laundry room is adjacent. Also of note on the upper level - 6 good-sized bedrooms, many with windows and views that will captivate. The Master retreat with its own ensuite and dressing room offers respite to weary parents at the end of the day. 4 full bathrooms on the upper level provides the all-important bathroom space for all of the children. Highlighting some of the other extraordinary features in this home : 9'H ceilings on the main and upper levels.
