Off the kitchen youll find a light-filled dining room with access to the lush side garden. A large living room overlooks the East Sidney Lake and mountain views! A separate parlour room would make an excellent formal living room or office. There is a spacious bedroom on the first floor and contemporary full bath. Upstairs there are three additional bedrooms. a 40 ballroom would make a spacious bedroom with sitting room or a home studio space. The property sits on 11.4 surveyed acres on both sides of the road.

    Interesting. Love the floors, and the sink! I even like how they left the old wallpaper in that one room (next-to-last photo). This is one house that needed to retain its earlier windows. But it’s a beautiful place, with a lot of features intact. I’m smitten by the built-in wall cabinets above the fireplaces!

    Beautiful house. But I’m curious, I don’t see any chimneys in the exterior pictures, but plenty of fireplaces in those of the interior. I wonder why the chimneys were removed.

    Those pretty fireplace covers…are those fireplaces still useable, do you think? But, I too was wondering where the the chimneys are! Maybe none of the fireplaces work? That would be a shame, and I can’t imagine someone going to all the trouble of doing all this wonderful work, and not keeping at least a few working fireplaces.
    I LOVE all the light that pours into this house! So many windows in the right places. I love the floor, the colors used, I really like that room with the half scrapped off wallpaper!

    So many things to love about this house! I really liked the art deco chandelier in the dining room. Usually, I don’t like out of period stuff, but for some reason this light fixture works in that room:) As far as the chimneys go, I would say it was probably a matter of money. If they are in bad shape, chimneys cost tens of thousands of dollars to restore. Maybe the owners chose to apply their resources where they could enjoy them the most.

    Wouldn’t this be a central hall style home with similar rooms on the left and the right? I wonder if an interior wall has been removed.

    I love this place. Normally I am a leave the wood features unpainted girl although I accept and generally like how homes of this period were painted certain colours. I have to admit that turquoise looks absolutely fab and not just because it is one of my favourite colours- it really does the house proud in my opinion.

    I always skip to the pictures of the kitchen before I look at the rest of the house. If the kitchen doesn’t fit with the house, I don’t bother with the rest of the pictures. For some reason, this house intrigued me from the very first picture. When I saw the kitchen I thought I’d died and gone to heaven. THAT is my dream kitchen. I love the way the house is decorated, minimally with no clutter. This house is #1 on my list!
