Property Description

Known for over 5 decades as the Brazolot house, this grand gem located in Old University originated in the 1870’s. The Toltan family built a stone cottage surrounded by 100 acres of farmland. In the 1910's the stone cottage went from a bungalow to a 3-storey estate home boasting 5200 sq feet. Bellevue St came years later and noted it had a great view of the Speed River. Brazolot Homes eventually severed the property and built 16 homes around them, keeping 3 lots for themselves. This lovingly maintained home raised 9 children, with 6 daughters on the 3rd floor, and mom/dad and 3 sons on the 2nd. Lots of fascinating stories. My favorite is ‘how did mom keep up with the laundry?’ Well of course, a laundry chute in every room, a laundry closet and 11 personalized cubbies for freshly-laundered clothes. On the main floor, a grand entrance with a quartersawn staircase. Straight ahead was the 'adult- no kids allowed’ living room for socializing. To the left, the dining room and kitchen with an Asian theme. Off the kitchen is the family room with a cozy fireplace for all the kids. Craft rooms and work shop, generous 2-car garage, and a fully finished basement with it’s own separate entrance as well. Outside: a concrete salt water pool, gazebo, pool change rooms and gardens. Distinguished features include hardwood flooring, 10 ft coffered ceilings, stained glass front door, leaded glass windows, archetype window and door casings, 12 inch oak baseboards and oak moldings, 2nd fl balconies and so much more. Steeped in history, this extraordinary potential and a once in a lifetime opportunity awaits the next lucky family.
