Zen and Now


Featured in the Grand Magazine September 2016, this limestone beauty gets more magnificent with age.  A very rare offering, she sits on a secluded and private Triple lot in the heart of what will be Cambridge’s new Gas Light District.  Within walking distance to downtown you can enjoy boutique shopping, fine dining, biking and walking trails along the banks of the Grand River.   As with all incredible renovations, this one is no exception, the perfect combination of classic elements and finishes, mixed with a subtle modern flare.  The home has been meticulously maintained and much of the original character remains, with features such as 11′ ceilings 14″ baseboards, staircase, stone mantel, dark hardwood floors, solid wood entrance and foyer.  Inviting and spacious principal rooms with an open functional layout are often only found in these well crafted century homes.  Such understated elegance adorned in soft white hues and the natural light from its’ perfect exposure invokes a real sense of harmony in this Circa 1900 built beauty.  Formal living room with functional wood burning fireplace and separate Main Floor Family room.  Modern Dining area addition has a stone accent wall, contemporary linear gas fireplace and the wall to wall windows to take advantage of all four season views across this estate style property.  Exceptionally designed and updated Kitchen features marble island top, chef grade appliances and designer lighting.  The homes’ stone facade and mature creeping vines are reminiscent of those found in old European Villages .  Step outside to your own personal oasis featuring almost 1/2 acre of absolute tranquility that feels as if you could be  miles from anything.  Add a stunning salt water pool with stone coping, hot tub, extensive patios, mature trees, perennial gardens, veggie garden and underground sprinkler system.  The entire property is surrounded by a 12′ cedar fence for complete privacy and provides plenty of space for entertaining or hosting the largest of gatherings.  Yes there’s more…the original stone 2 story carriage house/Garage flanks the rear yard and provides the perfect opportunity for a separate studio or retreat.  A true labour of love, this incredible storybook home is now ready to welcome its’ new owners and begin the next chapter in its history.
