Lake Lawn was built in 1846 by John Adolphus Nelles, and is currently owned by the second family to live in it. Now offered for sale for only the third time in its 177-year history, this remarkable estate is ready for new stewards to write its next chapter. This fabulous Regency/Georgian home is situated on a very private, landscaped lot measuring just under one acre in size. Only a block from the shore of Lake Ontario, the location is quiet and convenient; close to everything but yet spacious and secluded. The home itself offers over 3500 square feet over its two floors. While fully-equipped with central vac, updated electrical, plumbing, and forced air heating/air-conditioning, the home is filled with original and historic features. Ornate multi-pane window frames, 18 inch baseboards, original trim, and wide-plank floors complement the soaring ceiling heights and generous room sizes. The large original windows bathe the interior with natural light while offering beautiful views of the manicured grounds outside. The main floor consists of a large living room and a library/office off of the centre hall that leads to a grand dining room. A large eat-in kitchen, main floor powder room and laundry room complete the floor. Under a coffered wood ceiling, the kitchen boasts a huge wood-burning fireplace that can be used for cooking and ambiance, as well as two doors that lead to a sprawling wraparound deck and stone patio. Two staircases lead to the second floor of the home which offers four spacious bedrooms, a small den, and a massive 6-piece washroom. Additional features include the inviting covered front porch, large full-height basement with walkout, a detached garage, and impressive gardens. Now awaiting the third family to live in its walls, this landmark estate is a truly rare and special place in exceptional condition.
