HISTORIC ST. ANDREWS SUMMER HOME WITH EIGHT BEDROOMS, PRIVATE, IN-TOWN
Hillside is one of St. Andrews historic summer homes, in town, just steps from Katy's Cove. Built in 1893, this lovely home sits on 1.1 private acres and has recently undergone renovations to modernize the kitchen and its four baths. Hillside's owners have strived to maintain the elegant summer home feel from a by gone era .
Located on a private lane, this eight bedroom home, is secluded while being within easy walking distance to the Algonquin Hotel and everything the town has to offer. Its large light-filled rooms are the ideal setting for a reunion, small celebration, retreat or a quiet getaway with family and friends. Four wood burning fireplaces on the main floor add another layer of ambiance to this stunning home.
All eight of its bedrooms are located on the second floor, along with three of its four full baths. The second floor can be accessed by the grand central stairway or the more modest stairs at the rear of the house. Like the sun room below, one of the bedrooms is octagonal, with double window/doors which open to French-style balconies. Another bedroom opens to a small covered deck. All the bedrooms have lovely natural wood floors adorned with area rugs.
The kitchen is large and is fully equipped. From this room, you can move into a lovely breakfast room which opens to its own covered deck, or through a large adjacent pantry filled with vintage china and glassware, to the formal dining room beyond. This room, which opens to the sunroom and the parlour, is sumptuous with its heavy dining table, comfortable upholstered chairs and Italian glass chandelier. The front foyer is a large room unto itself and may be the perfect place for pre-dinner drinks, or you may want to enjoy the sea breezes from the wicker furniture on the covered verandahs.
Other conveniences include: separate TV room, laundry on site, and propane BBQ.
No pets or smoking please!
