This is your once in a lifetime chance to own a historical solid limestone treasure steeped in history. Elmhurst, built in 1852 by the architect William Coverdale, is situated on a massive lot steps from downtown Kingston, the hospital, Queen's University, the Tett Centre, the Isabel Bader centre for the performing arts, the waterfront trail, and the Gord Downie Pier. This gracious home offers 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths in addition to a rentable guest suite (with its own kitchen, 3-piece bath and two bedrooms) and the attached carriage house has another income generating space that has two bedrooms, two baths as well as its own laundry. Exceptionally well designed and oriented on a double lot (there is a possibility of severance if any new owner should desire this) this home will meet all of your expectations. Stunning century details, grand living and dining room with high ceilings and original fireplaces, high chandeliered ceilings with ornate original plaster cornices and mouldings, authentic windows and a 45' porch. Original Victorian wrought iron radiator screens can be found throughout the house with black marble tops. Enjoy the oasis of the garden, lovingly referred to as a jungle in the city, you will experience peace and serenity in this piece of paradise. The kitchen has been updated to enjoy the amenities of modern times with granite counter tops and a large island which leads into a spacious family room with gas fireplace. This home has been lovingly maintained by its current owners, but it is time for Elmhurst to move on to its next chapter.
