This house is a unique piece of history; meticulously renovated, restored and refurbished to preserve all the incredible original architectural details while being upgraded with all the bells and whistles for luxurious modern day living.
The imposing front door opens to the home’s grand vestibule with soaring ceilings, heated granite floors, and the original built-in side benches that have been restored to add hidden storage space. As you enter into the home you are greeted by an impressive entrance hall that truly takes your breath away; the 14 ft ceilings are embellished with the original neogothic wood carved beams and 2 ornate rod-iron lanterns also original to the home which inspired the design for the custom made staircase banister. A fireplace and spectacular stained glass interior window decorate the walls of this hall. On either side is a perfect cross hall plan between the large dining room and double living room. The windows in these rooms are all French doors, letting the natural light flood in and creating a fantastic flow for entertaining as they lead to the impeccably landscaped property grounds. The living room boasts a beautiful fireplace mantle on one wall and the original built-in and concealed window shutters have all been either redone or refurbished to be perfectly functional. The kitchen is tucked away boasting an eat-in dinette and access to a lovely interior courtyard.
The second floor is strategically organized to have separate quarters for the master suite and the 3 additional bedrooms. The roof lines and window openings of the 2nd level are iconic of the neogothic architecture. The master suite is complete with a spacious walk in closet finished with beautiful wood built-ins and a marble clad ensuite bathroom with both shower and tub. Each additional bedroom is complete with built-in or walk-in closet space and ensuite bathrooms all in the same marble finishings, gold fittings and heated floors.
