This home is a wonderful example of Gothic Revival architecture constructed by local plasterer Joseph Anderson in 1879. After the Canadian confederation occurred in 1876, the subsequent years saw a rapid growth of this style of architecture across Ontario. The thick walls, and steep roofs were well-suited to our harsh climate, and this home is a prime example of how well-built these homes truly are. From the foundation up, the home needs nothing, and will still be standing 100 years from now. Furnace, ac, roof, windows and more have all been upgraded in recent years; this home is the best of both worlds.
Lose track of time examining the details imbrued onto this character home. Everything from the door hinges to the ceilings have eccentric details, characteristic of the time. Enter through the enclosed front porch and enjoy the stained glass windows, beautiful ceiling medallions, huge baseboards, intricate crown moulding and original wood floors throughout.
The proportions of this historic home are impressive. Large principle rooms with clear defined living areas like the den with fireplace, the large living and dining area, and the big kitchen. The eat-in kitchen with additional pantry are accented by a 45-degree wall and small enclave which can be removed easily if wanted.
The large lot features a brand new two-tiered deck and beautiful flower beds. The newer fencing also features a beautiful iron insert in the doors.
Move in and enjoy the timelessness of a century home. This home is ready for its next owners to cherish.
