The master bedroom is presently labeled as a den/studio, its present use.

 

Hi Speed internet at the property is excellent. The owner needs hi-end internet for his work and is most pleased with the service. Go to https://www.1000island.net/fibre/

 

In the mid 2000s the home underwent a modern transformation yet retained all the original baseboards, window and door mouldings as well as the stately banister + tall ceilings and original flooring that will wow you! The home is carpet free except for the stairs to the third level & 3 third level rooms. The home was re-insulated, new wiring, new electrical service and new plumbing added to modern standards, vinyl windows, new bathroom fixtures, new kitchen cabinetry. A new garage was added, as well as a large rear deck off the kitchen and an above ground pool

 

Located opposite the Lansdowne fairgrounds on the corner of Prince Street and a quiet street called Beatty, is your amazing red brick beauty with a 100-year steel roof.

DESCRIPTION

Located 5 km north of Highway 401 & in close proximity to the 1000 Island International bridge is your amazing 3900 sq ft 5 bdrm-3.5 bath residence situated on a mature 0.8 acre lot backing onto greenspace yet fully serviced with city water and city sewer!

 

Your new home’s curb appeal is best described as stunning beginning with the beautiful red-brick, impressive steel roof, tall chestnut tree next to the double decker veranda, lovely gardens & the stately west entrance opposite the Lansdowne fairgrounds. Picture yourself over 100 years ago exiting the door & strolling to your horse & buggy to ride to the local market on Saturday morning. At the end of the long paved driveway is your double garage/workshop that was added to compliment original outbuilding behind the house. The large, insulated garage was constructed with old-style siding to compliment the age of your home and has its own 60 amp breaker service as well as ample lighting for the car enthusiast or hobbyist.

 

The south side of your new home has a spectacular double-decker veranda. This was rebuilt over the last few months with new supports and new decking to the tune of $40,000. Only the railings have to be added in the days to follow. The two levels of the veranda have circa 1895 heavy duty ornate entrance doors which are still to this day in pristine condition. Both entrances have wonderful foyers tastefully appointed with turn-of-the century floor & door trim that is throughout your home retained during 2 Beatty Street’s 2005-renovation/restoration.

 

As you walk in the main floor south entrance you will be impressed with the main foyer’s hand-carved banister, tall ceilings & original flooring that will wow you!

A lovely parlour or family room is on your left facing the fairgrounds. Beautiful built-in cabinetry is one of the many features of this bright and sunny room. Most rooms have many modern up and down windows that closely match the design of yesteryear

 

To your right in the southeast corner of the main level is your tremendous grand room featuring still functioning pocket doors that can separate the room in two sections highlighting a large traditional dining area and formal living room. Presently both areas are used as a place to relax. The woodstove and chimney are offered as/is. The chimney will need a new steel liner in order to have a WETT certificate.

 

Adjacent to the grand room is your second foyer for the west entrance facing the fairgrounds + your main floor laundry with modern 2-piece bathroom. The north section of the main level is home to your spacious kitchen with its many windows & French door leading to your deck and above ground pool. The kitchen was also renovated in 2004 when new hand-crafted cabinets were added and lovely crown moulding. A new backsplash and countertops were installed in 2021. Gorgeous!

 

Above your kitchen is the primary (master) bedroom accessible from a secondary staircase. This room is presently used as an office/studio*. Of course you can maintain the present use, however it is tempting to turn the room back to a bedroom since it has its own private bathroom/ensuite next to it and a good sized closet. The spacious bathroom has a traditional clawfoot bathtub and a large window facing the fairgrounds.

*100 years ago it is believed that the master bedroom was once the maid’s quarters.

 

Also on the 2nd level are three other very spacious bright and sunny bedrooms with original pine plank flooring, tall ceilings and lots of original trim. 2 of the 3 bedrooms have 2 big bright windows. There is also a beautiful 4-piece bathroom.

 

The third level is the only level with some carpet. This area makes for a perfect self-contained in-law suite with a big bedroom, cozy 4-piece bathroom, office, spacious lounge/den with unique oval window, the only original window in the home. A new window or storm window should be custom ordered next year. The huge recreation room has impeccable hardwood. This level exudes that charm from yesteryear with the sloped ceilings.

 

Basement

Your 6’3” tall storage basement is partially finished. In 2004 most of the exterior stone walls had 2 x 4 inch studs added and the walls were insulated and drywalled. There is a cute office sewing room and two huge storage rooms, one under the living room and one under the kitchen. This storage room has a near full height walk-out door leading under the deck allowing extra storage for lawn furniture etc.

 

Located in the utility room is your 2004 hi-efficiency oil fired Viessmann Vitola Biferral boiler. The unit is serviced annually & works fine. The oil tank was installed in the spring of 2021 According to Paul Millar, owner of a heating contracting firm, Millar Mechanical, heating costs will vastly reduce switching to propane

 

Exterior

Your 27 foot in diameter swimming pool was installed in approximately 2006 and has had upgrades such as a newer liner, new pump & filter over the years. Mature trees, including a majestic chestnut tree and lovely gardens adorn the property. Check out the lovely hostas!

 

There is a 2nd building lot behind the double garage and the storage building. Of course you can keep the property as it is for extra privacy or, at some point in the future, sever off the lot for family or resale. The Township requires that city services, specifically water and sewer be installed at time of severance.

 

Plaque

There is a historical plaque on the corner of the property however the home does NOT have a heritage designation. A heritage designation for a home means that it can be very complicated to obtain permits to renovate/repair and sometimes you need a permit to change a lightbulb. Not fun.

 

Reno work

The previous owner until 2007 was reportedly a top notch building contractor & did the lion’s share of renovation & restoration work. At that time, the home was re-insulated, new wiring, new electrical panels, new light fixtures, new plumbing, new bath fixtures, new hand-built kitchen cabinetry, new vinyl windows, new steel roof over west veranda, and new modern garage was constructed & more!

 

2021 renos include new kitchen countertops & backsplash, redoing retaining wall under deck, new rear gutters & $40k to rebuild south double decker veranda-
