A true character home, one block from the lake and steps to the Oakville Club, harbor and downtown shops. Built in 1860, this fine home, known as Greenhedges, was home to Farley Mowat's grandparents and was mentioned in his well known book, Never Cry Wolf. It is believed that the home was moved to the site from another location in town in the 1800s and joined with an existing barn on the property to create a larger home. The current owners have loved and cared for this home for 38 years, including adding a bright sunroom with cathedral ceiling, designed by DQI.
The home is large, offering 2,975 sq ft of living space above grade, including 5 bedrooms, a huge living room with wood burning fireplace, a large dining room with lovely built-ins and a main floor family room. The street presence is truly special, one of the prettiest homes in the district. There are two wonderful porches overlooking the gorgeous gardens, including extensive rhododendrons and azaleas.
This very special home has lots of historical details and is in fine condition. Perfect for lovers of character homes who want to add their own new touches.
