Elegant Victorian home sited on a generous, corner double lot in picturesque and historic St. Mary’s. This rare offering, built in 1874 by esteemed local builder Robert Barbour, has been extensively upgraded, restored, and maintained by the current owners, attentive to every detail whilst maintaining the character features true to that era. Imagine, continuing the custodianship of this landmark historic property, enjoying the high-end finishes and old-world charm as you entertain friends and family in this 4532 sq ft, 4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home. Steeped in history, the grandeur of the reception rooms with exquisite inlaid wood flooring, silk wallpaper from Germany, high ceilings, decorative plasterwork and stained-glass accents is a prelude to the functionality of this delightful period home. The large front parlour extends to the formal dining room and is separated by an impressive panelled sliding door. You can envisage the caterer serving meals here. Conveniently attached to the newly renovated, custom eat-in kitchen, with high-end appliances and a cozy wood burning fireplace, the former back service stairs lead to the dream home office. Where better to serve high tea and pre-dinner cocktails than in the living room and solarium. Retire up the stairs to the 4 bedrooms. The original hardwood flooring, high ceilings and attractive décor continue to enhance the spaciousness of this home. The primary bedroom is generous in size and boasts a newly renovated 5 piece en-suite a few steps away. 3 other bedrooms share a conveniently located 4 piece main bathroom…a truly fitting end to a perfect day. This property has magnificent curb appeal, heightened by the original Italianate wrap-around veranda. There is a more recent addition of an oversized 2 car garage with a breezeway giving access to the front and private back gardens encompassing a diversity of plants and soaring trees. It’s time to retreat to a community where lifestyle dictates.
