Welcome to this beautiful three level residence set on a large corner lot. The historic gate flanked by stone gateposts fronting onto Stewart Avenue, was part of the original Sloan estate serving as a reminder of this once imposing property. Gorgeous grounds with mature trees and perennial beds burst with colour picturesquely framing this magnificent heritage home. Both the front and back yards are very private and thanks to fencing and tall hedges, is completely enclosed. Enjoy ocean views while sipping your morning coffee on the back yard's arboured seating area. In summer, watch the fireworks from your own piece of paradise or dine alfresco on a glass covered deck shaded by a fragrant clematis. Keeping the integrity of the era are spacious rooms, glass door knobs, plaster walls, inlaid wood floors and charming built-ins. Numerous windows draw plentiful natural light and are designed to take advantage of the ocean's gentle cross breeze. There are garden views from almost every room and ocean views from some. The main level features a huge living room with gas fireplace, a separate dining room for entertaining, a hardworking kitchen and breakfast room with deck access. Completing this level is a third bedroom, full bathroom and sky lit laundry area. Upstairs are two bedrooms, office and powder room. On the lower level is a family room along with abundant storage and access to a single garage. Features include exterior chic vinyl coating, newer concrete driveway and adjacent retaining wall, updated windows, high efficiency gas boiler and alarm system. Situated a block from the seawall walkway, you can walk or ride bikes to parks, downtown amenities and the Newcastle Island water taxi. You can even walk your kayak, canoe or paddleboard down to the water! On realtor.ca click the icons below for immersive 3d tour, custom video, floor plans & more, or visit MillerRealEstate.com.
