Supremely GRAND Victorian home is now available for sale. From the main street an extra generous asphalt driveway leads back to the house and a huge shop measuring 52 ft X 62 ft, with 3 garage bays and sliding barn style doors. Behind and attached to the shop is the old brick Carriage House which measures approximately 26 ft X 18.5 ft. All this on just under 1.5 acres in the growing Village of Paisley where the Teeswater and Saugeen Rivers meet. Built in 1880 by Robert Porteous, a businessman and banker, this home is as solid now as it was then, with interior double brick supporting walls, and exterior triple brick walls. Basement has 10.5 ft ceilings, concrete floors and 3 foot thick stone foundation walls. Main floor once housed a Ballroom, where the kitchen and dining room are now. Ceilings on the main floor are 11.5 feet tall, second floor 10.5 feet tall, and third floor loft 7 feet tall. Several bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms. 4 glorious original white marble fireplace mantles are still in place in original locations but are now used cosmetically. Arched doorways, original wood trim, grand staircase and Victorian features make time slip away to another era. Wiring has been updated and there is a generator for backup if needed. House has 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, and has been used for many years as Garham Hall Bed and Breakfast. Many repeat customers loved experiencing the original feel and appropriate decor! Owner wishes to retire and pass the torch on to someone who will continue the love. (id:43978)
