1851 Greek Revival Plantation Manor - once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a piece of Canadian history. A one-of-a-kind heritage estate with thoroughly restored original details, the property is a 3-bedroom, 4-bathroom, 3-level home built in 1851 by lumber merchant Asa Wolverton - one of the original settlers of Paris. The almost 5,000 SF home is designated under the Ontario Heritage Foundation and has been awarded the Ontario Heritage Trust Certificate of Achievement for the careful preservation of its distinctive design elements. This exquisite estate boasts original restored red pine floors, hand-hewn wooden beams, a 3-season enclosed veranda, 6 fireplaces with original mantels, oil floor cloths recreated from 1820's stencils, formal living and dining rooms, and parlour. The main floor kitchen boasts an island and modern appliances and connects to the carriage house through a hidden murphy cabinet/door. The carriage house can serve as an in-law or guest suite, with a separate entrance. Upstairs, find 2 bedrooms, renovated bathroom and large balcony overlooking the main street and gardens. Downstairs are 2 separate living areas - one with a kitchen, dining room/living area, laundry and walk-in pantry, as well as a walk-out to stone patio overlooking the river. The other with a games room, bathroom, and small office. The lower level of the barn (original animal stable) has been converted into a large workshop with service elevator to the main level. Surrounding the house are original rose gardens framed by cobblestone walls, smokehouse (one of a few left in Canada), and swim spa with flagstone patio. The barn's main level has been converted to store up to three vehicles. Follow stairs down to the river to find a heated fishing cabin, and continue through the forest down to the Grand River to enjoy scenic views. 52 Grand River St is just a short stroll to downtown amenities. Paris is known as the hub for 80-120km to Niagara Falls, Toronto, K/W/C, London and Simcoe. (id:10452)
