UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY - FIRST TIME TO MARKET! 'Clifton', constructed in the late 1860s, is one of the few remaining estate-style-merchant-built homes that has been continually occupied by the original family (~160 years). Strategically located in the heart of the historic quarter, offering a considerable set back off Rennies Mill Road, 'Clifton' features unobstructed views of Bannerman Park. This impressive (~5300 sq ft) 2 ½ storey historic home retains all of its original characteristics. Enter through the Victorian conservatory, welcomed by the elegant lobby with original curved walls & sweeping staircase. Ideal for entertaining with its grand, adjoining principle rooms (12ft ceilings), the living room & dining room, both have elegant fireplaces & walk-in bay windows with incredible park views. Cloak room/study off the main foyer with fireplace. English style kitchen, butler's pass through leading to the oversized rear den with walk-in bay window, fireplace & patio access. Secondary entrance off the driveway with mudroom, main floor laundry & full bath. The outstanding staircase, with large arched window, leads to 5 well-proportioned rooms, all with fireplaces & 2 full bathrooms (currently configured as 4 bedrooms & library). Perched in the sloping roofline, the developed attic consists of 4 additional rooms (previously used as bedrooms) & storage room off the centralized landing. The basement offers extra storage. This well-maintained & truly loved family home has all of its interior original features intact including solid wood doors, millwork, staircase, some flooring, fireplaces, plaster moldings. Exterior original details include decorative trims & wooden windows with storms. Situated on a level, landscaped, mature, tree lined corner lot (~108ftx109ft) with generous side yards (fronting on Rennies Mill Road, with double paved driveway off the quiet cul-de-sac Riverview Avenue) complete with greenhouse.
