The cultural mosaic that created The Hills of Headwaters, left in its wake, 300 years of architectural influences. It evolved as a region of translated cultures that came together to create a distinctive hallmark.
Stonecroft was built in the mid 19th century by Irish settlers. These enterprising new Canadians collected limestone and granite from the adjacent rolling hills and meticulously crafted this landmark residence. A testament to their hard work is memorialized in a keystone embedded in the gable etched with the year 1859.
Inside, oversized windows with deep jambs are gently angled reflecting the Celtic influences of the time. Hand hewn wood beams, reminiscent of the period harmonize with luxurious, contemporary finishes. The home’s original natural stone line the walls of a three story glass staircase and a 23’ lower level library. Reclaimed wideplank hemlock floors adorn most of the residence with touches of flagstone and slate.
With a modern sensibility, this elegant estate home features sumptuous baths, detailed millwork and a Wolf equipped gourmet kitchen. Not only has Stonecroft been lovingly restored, it has been transformed from a century and a half ancestral home, into a 7,200 sq ft oasis of gentrified living.
Interior spaces have been thoughtfully curated with period pieces, antique carpets and vintage European chandeliers, all with a nod to comfort and livability.
Exterior spaces have been designed to complement the architecture with oversized stone planters, English-styled flagstone walkways, landscaped terraces, a pool, gazebo and two large spring fed ponds.
Stonecroft leaves an indelible imprint on the legacy of our past while respectfully creating a blueprint for an extraordinary country living experience for generations to follow.
