4 Bedroom 3 Bathroom 2758
2 Level Fireplace Central Air Conditioning Forced Air Waterfront On River Acreage


This Victorian beauty, circa 1885, is an impeccably restored architectural delight on a 1.3 acre piece of paradise that stretches 932’ to the banks of the Grand River in Paris, ideally located within 20 minutes of Cambridge, 35 minutes of KW, and 10 minutes of Hwy 403. Fly fishing for trout, bass, and walleye can be done from your very own stretch of the river, and kayak and canoe routes easily begin or end here! A walking trail leads up from the river’s edge, through Carolinian forest, opening on to expansive green lawns with mature shade trees and peaceful resting spots. You are drawn through perennial gardens and arbours towards the huge windows of the thoughtfully integrated family room addition that looks out over a deck and patio designed to enjoy the view. The current owners, over the last three decades, have extensively updated this 2758 sq/ft home in a perfect blend of modern convenience and historical integrity… custom kitchen, luxurious renovated bathrooms, updated mechanicals, windows, and much more. Its front and side two-storey bays, decorative front entrance, roof brackets, radius arches over the windows, and slate roof with new copper trim, remain true to the heritage district in which it is located. The spectacular staircase, high ceilings, and spacious rooms capture the elegance of a bygone era, while the carefully restored and detailed trim and mouldings, medallions, and doors, bear witness to a level of craftmanship that has stood the test of time. With a large family room on the main floor, four bedrooms, two full baths and one 2-pce bath, and a main floor laundry, this home offers space and comfort for family living. A gentle walk takes you to Paris’ pretty downtown at the junction of the Grand and Nith Rivers, with its excellent restaurants and shopping. This is quintessential small-town Ontario. Schools are within easy walking, and amenities include a hospital and new sports complex. (id:40058)
