Rarely offered, fully updated Victorian style home. Situated on approximately an acre property, The Maple Home was built in 1886 and was the original home built by the Morrison Brothers. The Morrison area and Morrison Road are named after the Morrison family. This property consists of the renovated home & an oversized two car carriage house with guest quarters. This home is registered with the Oakville Historical Society and was completely and lovingly restored in 2002 by Gren Weis to historical standards while incorporating the modern amenities, conveniences and technology of today.
With almost 10,000 square feet of living space, and 10ft ceilings, this home features a traditional center hall plan with flanking dining and living rooms off the main foyer. The 12” baseboards, archway casings, window casings and panels in the foyer, living room and dining room are original. They were removed during construction, hand stripped and refinished to period. A recently installed elevator, with access to the main and upper level, is also the secret entrance to the home office. As you make your way to the back of the home you are greeted with a spectacular newer kitchen with top of the line appliances and soapstone countertops, this space is open to the oversized breakfast area and family room – perfectly designed for the modern family today. A private library is tucked off the side of the family room. A lovely fully screened covered porch is connected to the family room and leads you out to the backyard. A large pantry, mudroom and laundry room are also found on this level featuring an alternate side entrance to the home as well as a dog wash station.
Upstairs you will find a stunning master suite featuring his and her spa like ensuites, with steam shower, as well as walk-in closets. Three additional large bedrooms, all with updated ensuite access, are also found on this level. The lower level of this home is fully finished with plenty of recreation space as well as a home theater.
The rear yard features a concrete salt water pool, multi-level deck and plenty of green space. The detached coach house was built in board and batten style to compliment the original home. This fully insulated and temperature controlled, detached garage is adjacent and separate from the main home and features two oversized garage bays, self-contained nanny/in law quarters on the second floor as well as a three-piece bathroom. This home has a convenient circular driveway with parking for 14 cars.
