The Crawley House, a crown jewel of downtown Port Hope, is an imposing 1860's Romanesque Revival style two-and-a-half storey red brick house set back from the street, with a spacious front lawn, gardens, mature trees on a ravine in a unique park like setting with ponds. A well maintained historical home with up-to-date conveniences, kitchens, bathrooms, and heating. Set on an unprecedented 3.1 acres in town, this estate is surrounded by ponds, creeks and walking trails. Meandering through the lush gardens and crossing over a walking bridge, you will stumble across a summer cottage set to the rear of the property. Off the grid, solar powered, originally powered by a waterfall driven turbine, this quaint outbuilding is one of many magical features few will experience in a home. The main home is set back from the street offering a long view to the impressive pedimented entrance porch. Upon entry, the decor and loving restoration transports you back to 1860's including the unique quality of materials & construction, and 12 foot ceilings over arched windows and cut glass, each permitting natural light throughout the main and second floors. Looking up to beautiful ceiling reliefs and down to the rich original restored floors, it's what you were expecting when you took your first steps through the foyer. The main level offers a wide, private dining room and a modern kitchen with rich granite and butcher block counters. The 1930's solarium adds nearly 400 square feet of family room and affords all the entertainment space you could desire. As you retire upstairs, large bedrooms with a generous master complimented with two full modern baths are connected through a sitting area that empties to a second level deck for privacy and calm moments. The third level loft is not finished and utilized for storage, but could be re-purposed into over 500 square feet of living space or a dream master suite. Two additional bedrooms, a gym, laundry and storage are found in the lower level. (id:2367)
