Set just outside the downtown core of one of Canada’s prettiest small towns, one Banfield is one of the most unique and prominent period homes in the entire region, just 90 minutes from downtown Toronto. Rich in history, this imposing and very elegant Gothic Victorian estate was built in 1854 for Mr. Charles Whitlaw, owner of the Paris Mills, the largest in the province at the time. Many of the original historic features are intact or have been lovingly restored including the slate roof, hardwood floors, copper eaves, five fireplaces, plaster moldings, spectacular millwork, and other old-world accents. The house was built to a level of quality unheard of today, with two-foot-thick walls to create a quiet sanctuary. Millions of dollars have been invested by the current owners in restorations, improvements, and renovations. The house offers over 5, 800 square feet across the two levels, plus 1, 389 square feet of potential in the incredible attic and an additional 1, 716 square feet in the lower level. The ground floor alone measures over 3, 400 square feet. With a palatial dining room and equally large formal living-room, a family room with working fireplace and a large sunroom (which is presently used as a study). The 2, 391 square foot second floor has four large bedrooms and two ensuite bathrooms. There is a third large spa main bathroom with a skylight and steam room. On the third floor, a 1, 389 square foot unfinished attic space, with high ceilings, is ideal for future development. Off the large country kitchen is a charming fifth bedroom (which was formerly the maid’s quarters) with an ensuite bathroom. The 1, 700 square foot lower level, with modern finishes has a recreation room (presently used as a fitness area), home gym, modern powder room, with lots of storage space and seven-foot-high ceilings. The grandeur of the architecture, the size and history of the property make this one of the most unique and iconic homes in Southwestern Ontario. (id:5856)
