Built circa 1929, this Boyd-Block, 4 level home is nestled on 3.2 acres of high land just outside beautiful Heritage Perth, less than an hour’s drive west of Ottawa. Boyd Block was the choice in construction of hundreds of marvelous homes throughout Eastern Ontario during the period 1907 through the mid 1950s. The artistic stone was manufactured by the Boyd Brothers Company in the town of Osgoode Ontario.
The long driveway lined on one side with wild day lilies and a neat row of evergreens, and complemented by a trail of cast iron lamps on the other, provides a suitably elegant entrance to the property. Country living at its finest featuring expansive grounds, magnificent gardens, an apple orchard, several cherry trees and a vegetable garden.
This stately residence boasts original details, including a gracious ‘3 seasons’ verandah, gleaming maple hardwood floors, wainscoting and trim, central entrance hall with beautiful oak spiral staircase and large main-floor principal rooms.
A fully functional wood-burning fireplace creates winter warmth in the living room, which opens through French pocket doors into the dining room, while the large family room is enriched by maple wainscoting.
The cheerful, thoroughly modern kitchen is a chef’s dream with its premium appliances, loads of storage and counter space and a butler’s pantry. Off the kitchen is the charming breakfast room with a large bay window overlooking the beautiful gardens and beyond.
The bright second floor offers 3 generous-sized bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, while the third floor attic gives way to a multi-purpose loft, with skylights, currently utilized as an office & boardroom. Downstairs, the dry, fully tiled basement houses an office, French-style wine cellar, laundry, powder room, storage and equipment rooms.
A magnificent property such as this has to be seen! An ideal country home, with the original details preserved yet, underneath it all, completely modernized. $173,000 in recent improvements, too many to mention, but a complete list is available. A survey is also available along with approved architectural drawings for an additional coach house that can house a double car garage with usable living/office space above.
