Classic Ontario front-gable, center hall brick farm house. main floor triple brick, with chestnut trim and french doors. Sits well back from a quiet road on nearly two acres of Beautifully landscaped property with a view of nearby Lake Erie. This historic home was built circa 1835 and has been tastefully renovated, updated and decorated. A rare opportunity to enjoy country living at its best.
John Price brick fired in Pt. Ryerse circa 1835. More recently restored by Earnest Gray in 1985. This home appears in the book of Historic Pt. Ryerse and has been in the Winter and Oakes families before the Astles. The quiet road was once known as Mum?s Road. One of the early matriarchs in this home was known to take in, feed and shelter newcomers. She was called ?Mum?.
Fixtures true to the period include the authentic Bradley Hubbard in the dining room. A fine example of an historic oil lamp, respectfully converted to electricity by Marie-Claire?s brother Lance Robbins.
Outside the respect for history blends gracefully with new ideas as the old two-seater outhouse is re-purposed as a garden shed.
Gardeners will appreciate the snowball bush, red bud, weeping Cyprus, Japanese maple, Fringe tree, chestnut tree, lilacs, walnuts, pears, apples, rhododendrons, ornamental grasses, hostas, trillium and maybe even the prickly pear cactus in the rock garden.
