This a unique opportunity. And an exceptional home.
This home is an opportunity for a family with a vision and energy. An original stopping place on the journey from Ottawa to Kingston this home has played an important role in the development of this part of the County.
Today it’s a little tired and in need of some love. But the home and the 6+ acres it’s sitting on represent tremendous value and opportunity
BELOW IS THE COPY FROM THE ORIGINAL LISTING
Come step back through time in this beautiful stone home built in 1860. It had been faithfully restored, reminiscent of its era. Being the halfway point between Ottawa & Kingston many stage coaches would stop here on their long journeys between the two cities.
The original drive-through barn where passengers would enter the home while keeping dry is still used as an attached garage. You’ll relax in the shade of your wrap around verandha on hot summer days & watch the ducks play in the natural pond. Feel the history come alive from every corner of this home. Whether you’re preparing dinner on the gorgeous Heartland replica cook stove ($7,000) or having tea with company in the authentic Victorian parlor.
