Hidden Stone Gem in the Heart of the City!

If it’s privacy you’re after, you certainly will find that here!

Truly, who knew this stone estate was perched on a hill majestically back from the road on a wooded 1 acre lot amid tall old trees and breathtaking gardens? Not many.

Built by a Scottish settler in the 1860’s, this house with its thick stone walls and over 3400 ft.² of living space has been used as a single family home until 2013 when the current owners built a fabulous main floor addition for their commercial design business. We have included some photos for your convenience of what the office space looked like before dismantling the business just in case this may be something you would like to do. The basement was fully excavated for the addition offering great space for future finishing or amazing storage. Many updates and upgrades were done at this time, including a metal roof are just too numerous to mention here. It was designed this way to convert later into a main floor family room, master bedroom and luxurious en-suite with walk-in closet. This is an incredible space with soaring ceilings and lots of windows while keeping with the integrity of the old stone home.

Guests typically enter the home through what was originally the back entrance. Here you get to enjoy the exposed stone character of the old home and views of the Great room of the new! A handy home office, or perfect area for the family computers or homework station or music room, is nicely tucked away here for privacy. A convenient main floor laundry room with access to the side yard and two piece bath is perfectly located here as well.

Should you enter from the front of the home, you can see how the beautiful front veranda is an ideal place for your morning coffee, a picnic lunch or just to sit and enjoy the beautiful gardens. This is such a peaceful setting. Upon entering here, the staircase is flanked by a formal dining room, and a main floor den or guest bedroom with its own en-suite. The hall leads to a most generous updated kitchen and a fabulous pantry. Upstairs you will find the original master bedroom with yet another updated en-suite. Two remaining bedrooms share a lovely modern 3 piece bath. The rooms are very graciously and spaciously laid out so it works for today’s families, unlike many old homes that tend to be chopped up with smaller rooms and limited closet space. A four car garage is almost unheard of these days but you will find that here with plenty of room for landscaping equipment, toys, cars as well as recreational vehicles. A circular drive and handy parking pads offers an abundance of parking space.

Impeccably kept, lovingly cherished and tastefully decorated, this home leaves nothing to be desired. I can’t say I’ve seen another like it. Some new family is about to find out about Guelph’s best kept secret. Let us be the one to introduce you to your new home!
