Port Hope, ON
David Smith House (Fairmount)
Tremendous opportunity to own one of Port Hopes most charming and romantic grand homes. This is the first time this property has been offered for sale in over 80 years. Designed in the Cottage Gothic style, the unique construction includes stucco exterior walls with cross gables, a steep roof and unique decorative trim. Retaining its original features, this home craves a sympathetic restoration to return it to its original grandeur. Situated on over four acres the property features period barns, mature perennial gardens and offers privacy and tranquility while being walkable to all amenities and Trinity College.
The gracious entry showcases a beautiful curved stairway to the second floor where there are 7 bedrooms, each with its own interesting elements.
On the main level there is a formal dining room with a large original fireplace. A large living room is found at the front of the home and has lovely light and large fireplace.
This is a large home for those who are seeking something very different and relish the opportunity to contribute to the restoration and enjoyment of one of Port Hopes architectural treasures.
