19 Paul Street - $1,799,000 (SOLD)
A turnkey home in one of the County’s most sought after neighbourhoods
As seen in Domino, Apartment Therapy, Reno Notebook, Toronto Life, Circa, Settler’s Dream, and many other publications, this gorgeous 5 bed / 3 full bath Victorian home was built by Ellen Bridget Reid in 1890 and lived in by prominent Picton entrepreneurial families including the Frasers, Fralicks, and Coltons (of Wexford House). Every part of the house has been renovated and redesigned for modern living in the County, just steps to Main Street and Picton Harbour.
Enter via the double arched doors on the 20ft wide verandah -all recently restored -into a grand foyer with original staircase. French doors lead you into the parlour and dining room with oversized windows, oak hardwood flooring, and extra tall ceilings -equally perfect for County entertaining or relaxed family dinners.
The kitchen, just renovated in 2021, features Calacutta Quartz slab countertops, a 36” gas range, original rear staircase, and natural light streaming in from all directions. Off the kitchen, a three-season enclosed side porchwith original wood floors and pine ceilings.
Continue through the kitchen into a modern addition with walkouts to the garden, wood burning stove, full bathroom with walk-in rain shower, and a large second storey bedroom (or office/studio) overlooking thegarden. Ideal for extra living space, a guest / in-law suite with its own entrance, or a luxurious work-from-home setup.
5 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms provide plenty of space for a growing family and all your guests. The primary suite features huge windows with views to nearby Macaulay Mountain from bed, custom built-in double wardrobes, and a spa-like ensuite with soaker jacuzzi tub. Three other bedrooms each feature plentiful natural light and charm. The second and third full baths both feature oversized walk-in showers with rainfall shower heads. Convenient second-floor laundry is just steps away.
A hidden gem of the oversized lot can be found at the rear of the property: a two-storey rebuilt and insulated carriage house and double garage with power, heat, and AC. The structure features nearly 800 square feet of additional space with unlimited possibilities -an upper loft used as an artist studio and office features white oak engineered hardwood floors and loads of natural light. The lower level offers a perfect workshop space, or covered parking for two vehicles. Roughed in hookup for electric vehicle awaits. Professional drawings and plans are available with details on adding plumbing and further finishing the lower level if desired.A large private backyard is completely covered in canopy from the one of the largest trees in the neighbourhood. The recently landscaped front, rear, and side yards include a large patio overlooking the gardens, carriage house, and neighbouring walnut grove.
Every square foot of this Picton property has been renovated and restored for modern living with attention to original details that include gleaming oak floors, oversized baseboards, and crown moulding throughout. Significant investments have been made in energy efficiency including new R60 attic insulation with spray foam (2020); new roof (2018); high-efficiency modernized basement and mechanical systems; updated electrical; and LED recessed lights throughout.
