At 2 Samuel Street, be prepared to be swept of your feet. Charming even on approach with its metal roof, widow’s walk and pillared wrap-around verandah overlooking an inviting little parkette across the street, this 4 bedroom home is offering style and substance to a discerning buyer. Modern quality builder, incredible upgrades, design reminiscent of a more genteel lifestyle and time – what more can a prospective homeowner look for?
Built for a family looking to set roots in a vibrant, active community, the design invites community interaction, as sitting enjoying a cold drink on the stone flag verandah will invite the neighbours to stop for a chat. The Village in Niagara-on-the-Lake offers the best of what Niagara has to offer – proximity to community services, summer markets, walking trails, wineries, shops, and restaurants in an architecturally protected enclave.
The lasting appeal in this unique home is in the details – corbeled archways, deep baseboards, wooden doors sourced from a monastery – and in the fantastic amenities provided; wide-plank Hemlock floors, a woodburning fireplace , extra-wide stairways, upgraded appliances and fixtures.
The main floor welcomes visitors via the grand entry; slate floor, library off to the right with a double French door to the verandah, graceful wooden stairway rising to the second floor, a classic center hall plan.
The living room beckons with tall windows and a medieval motif carved fireplace that begs for closer inspection. Lots of room for grand-scale furniture and a terrific view of the parkette, you'll find yourself lingering with a good book and enjoying the crackle of the fire.
Kitchen access from the living room or the hall, with a breakfast area, double French door leading to the backyard, and an iconic granite-topped island supported by an altar complete with Greek and Celtic carvings. Stainless appliances, double sink set in the island, copper warming the room from the pressed-tin ceiling and the lighting. Expect friends and family to linger here, basking in warm light and making good memories.
From the upstairs landing one can head to the master suite, which is generously sized, offers a walk-in closet, ensuite corner soaker tub/separate shower and a darling custom cabinetry vanity/sink combination. Three additional bedrooms and a lofted studio share a lovely 4-pc bath, each room filled with light from the 4-over-4 or accent windows bursting with personality.
Downstairs is equally bewitching with its cosy recreation area, office, bright laundry with tons of storage, large windows and roughed-in bathroom connections. Fine to leave as-is, or ready for your personal touch; the windows and layout make this as open and welcoming as the main floor.
Outside, the garage with room enough for 2 cars met by the double driveway, the yard is pool-sized, mature plantings - ready for your guests and family to enjoy.
