Located in the heart of the Cross-Melville Heritage District awaits a rare opportunity to own a magnificent Victorian situated on a 1.5+ acre ravine lot. Built as a duplex in 1890, this stunning home has been meticulously converted into a single-family masterpiece. Situated behind a 10 ft cedar privacy hedge and backing onto your own private forested space, this secluded oasis is the perfect mix of modern convenience and old-world charm. The main part of the home features 3 large principle rooms, a spacious eat in kitchen with brick pizza oven and stunning floor to ceiling windows throughout the rear of the property. Too many features to list: 5 beds, 5 baths, 4 wood-burning fireplaces, curved walls, and exposed brick. Mindfully updated, this home maintains its character and charm, proving it to be a historic treasure, while embracing modern conveniences and luxuries.
Across the back of the home spans balconies and floor to ceiling windows on both levels, providing warmth and natural light to the interior and breathtaking views of the forest beyond. The redesigned lower level features a self-contained in-law suite with multiple walk outs and patio spaces, in-floor heating, and a series of exterior French Doors providing light and exquisite forest views. Complete with an additional kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and a large living space, this level can function as an in-law suite, guest suite, or as an extension of the main home. The attached garage features parking for 4 vehicles or space for a workshop or hobby area. When exploring the grounds, you’ll also find your own separate forested cabin with a private stream running through the property. Enjoy your own piece of paradise whilst only steps from the Dundas Driving Park and walking distance to all of the amenities of downtown.
