Beautiful century home on almost an acre – in the city! This stunning 2-storey has been lovingly maintained and updated over the years, with a keen eye for detail. True pride of ownership shows in the painted wood siding, triple pane leaded windows, and upgraded sunroom – all of which preserve the historic character of this mid 19th century build. Additionally, a matching detached garage was constructed in later years. This oversized 2-car garage offers additional storage and workspace in the finished loft.
The home has 3 entrances. First is main entrance which offers a graceful foyer. The side door leads to a mudroom with coat closet and laundry closet. Finally, the front door accesses the spacious and winterized sunroom. The foyer offers a charming alcove in the bay window, followed by the home’s main staircase. Next, find the large formal living room with a cozy brick fireplace with Heatilator (“as is”). The living room loops behind the fireplace to the formal dining room, and both of these spaces lead into the amazing sunroom. Bathed in natural light throughout the day and with glimpses of the Wolastoq river, you won’t want to spend time anywhere else. Plus, with heated tile floors, you can enjoy great company or a good book here year-round!
Completing the Main Floor
Back through the French doors, head from the dining room into the large kitchen. Enjoy handsome wood cabinetry, tile backsplash, wall oven, induction range top, and a bay window that looks out over the side yard. Next is the sitting room with a cozy wood stove, followed by a powder room with Turkish marble finishes.
The primary bedroom suite completes the main floor. This section of the home was added in 1987. It boasts a large bedroom with vaulted ceilings, a walk-in closet with built-in shelving, and a private ensuite bathroom. With a double vanity, corner soaker tub, walk-in shower, and marble floors, this bathroom is well-equipped.
Finally, the home offers 2 staircases to the upper level. This level hosts 2 more spacious bedrooms (one with a walk-in closet), another full bathroom, a cozy den with vaulted ceilings, and a sitting room or office which overlooks the primary bedroom.
Your Private Oasis
Filled with character and offering a great layout, the interior of the home is sure to please; however outside is a wonder of its own. With a covered verandah, interlock walkways, and gorgeous perennial gardens, there is so much to enjoy. In the warmer months, a magnolia tree hangs over the patio area. It is truly like having your own botanical garden! A wide variety of flowers and shrubs cover the large yard, kept private with hedges blocking the road and some neighbouring properties. Additionally, newer roof shingles and a paved driveway provide further convenience.
Minutes to downtown, uptown, and the Vanier highway, the property is conveniently located. Enjoy the many advantages of city life, and then find yourself transported to a serene country home as you pull in your driveway. 1586 Lincoln Road is a little slice of heaven!
