Set-back on an expanse of land, this stately family home sits proudly-perched as though its place is to oversee the neighbourhood. A real head-turner for any passerby. In 2010, after nearly one million dollars in extensive renovations, this historic barnhouse was lovingly transformed into the delightfully charming yet incredibly modern family home that we see today.
The expansive interior offers over 4,551 sq ft (above grade) of family living. With 6 bedrooms including a main floor master, a lower level suite and 7 bathrooms including two powder rooms. Loaded with windows and double storey ceiling heights. A modern lower level rec-room, a teenage or nanny suite and an exceptionally large dining and formal sitting room are but a few of the well laid out spaces. Sun-filled from front to back makes the home feel connected, whether in the large kitchen or off to the side watching TV in ‘The Pub’ family room.
At the heart of the renovation was the intent to create modern necessities through the complete restructuring of the home along with basics such as waterproofing, insulating, wiring and technology while preserving many of the original barnhouse features such as the numerous exposed beams throughout along with fun quirks like the original split-style doors.
The grounds are expansive and the setting is private. Every room, every window, offers green vistas and the backyard setting is like none other. The large saltwater swimming pool is surrounded by extensive hardscaping and far off towering trees making for a perfect hideaway. A wonderful, much loved place to call home with the integrity and craftsmanship of a home built to last another hundred years.
