This property has it all!! Fronting on the Bay of Quinte, well known for great fishing and boating and ideally located for the serious sailor to travel West to the Trent System or East to Kingston & the Thousand Islands. The residence, according to The Settler's Dream book, was likely built around 1836 and housed McMurray's General Store for a time. Today, from the street the classic, but unassuming exterior, provides no clue as to what the interior has to offer. Upon entering the home through the front door an amazing transformation is evident. Now a stunning contemporary home with much of the original character skillfully incorporated including old wood floor boards & ceiling beams. The living and dining areas are open to the fabulous kitchen which features an abundance of cabinetry & upscale appliances as well as a huge pantry space - every cook's dream! Sliding glass doors from the dining/living room open onto a large deck overlooking the gardens and a fabulous lake view - a perfect spot to enjoy after dinner drinks while gazing at the spectacular sunsets. The main floor also features a library/sitting space, laundry room with 2 pce bath, a large storage room & access to the garage/workshop. The upper floor offers two spacious bedrooms each with it's own ensuite bathroom. Better than a new home, this unique residence has been professionally designed & rebuilt from the walls in with insulation, walls, ceilings, wiring & plumbing. The septic system was replaced in 2020. An absolutely charming & unique offering!! (id:47564)
