This lovingly restored, three-storey mansion has been the heart of Main Street for over a century! Constructed circa 1888, it was aptly named ‘Sunnyside’, to represent all that is good in life. Set back 80 feet from the street in the historic village of St. George, this stately home has an air of prominence. In 1981 it was recognized by the former Township of South Dumfries for its architectural and historical value. Character defining elements include a Mansard slate roof, Stone Mullion window treatments, stone detailing on the exterior walls, third-storey arched dormers, a two-storey bay window on the front façade and a northeast tower. The original floor plan with its 27 sumptuous rooms has virtually remained intact since its inception. No expenses were spared during its restoration and there have been numerous updates over the years with respect to the electricals, plumbing and roofing. On the main floor, with its 11’ ceilings, is the grand foyer, formal living and dining rooms, a butler’s pantry, a home office, a ‘vault’ and a mud room. The generous-sized kitchen overlooks the back gardens. On the second floor there are five bedrooms including the master with its own sitting room. A self-contained suite which includes a living/dining room, kitchen, 4 piece bathroom, 2 bedrooms and a study is on the third floor. The fully finished lower level has a walk out, a wine cellar and recreation, exercise and media rooms. The large lot features a gazebo, a greenhouse, natural gardens and mature foliage. Enjoy the enchantment of yesteryear in this extraordinary home that has been meticulously cared for. Period wallpapers and fabrics are beautifully appointed against the natural woodwork, elegant glass doors and windows. Cherry and ash flooring with original parquet are a reminder of the craftmanship of a bygone era. Although it is an impressive private residence that has to be seen to be fully appreciated, it also has great potential as a Bed & Breakfast or a Spa.
