Own your own piece of history!
LOVINGLY AND EXTENSIVELY RESTORED! WINNER OF THE 1990 ‘RENOVATION CONTEST’ HELD BY CANADIAN LIVING MAGAZINE! FEATURED IN THE AUG 2004 EDITION OF ‘VICTORIAN HOMES MAGAZINE!’
Once in a lifetime opportunity to own a period perfect Victorian era home, originally built in 1875 (by John and Deborah Ralph). Purchased by the current owners nearly half a century ago to revive its original glory. It has undergone a room-by-room restoration with no detail overlooked. Current owners were fortunate enough to have many consultations with the last surviving member & youngest daughter of the original Ralph family before her passing. She compared their restorations to original features, provided further history & gave them many photos & documents, pieces of history that are practically priceless! Aside from the bathrooms & kitchen which were intended to evoke the Victorian era but designed for functionality, every feature has been meticulously recreated. The stunning original moldings have been replicated where missing. Pine flooring,impressive high ceilings, & wide doorways give a grand impression. Ornate cornices & ceiling medallions in the foyer and parlour show the unmatched attention to detail. Period-correct wallpaper adorns the walls, only one layer should you wish to remove. Patterned red & buff bricks & four pane arched windows take you back to the 19th century. All original or carefully reconstructed doors & trim, as well as hardware (porcelain doorknobs, cast ornate hinges, latch pulls, slide bolts, etc.) Other features for you to enjoy include granite counter tops in the kitchen, an 18’x26’ heated & insulated detached garage/workshop, upgraded electrical, 16’x32’ inground pool with interlock patio, & a 5 zone irrigation system to keep the yard immaculate. Water heater, central air & dual propane furnaces all new in 2016.
