Potential & Personal Retreat in One!
Live in the Jewel of the Rideau! Historic Merrickville is home to a number of local artisans, and artists, and is a village rich in local history. Not to mention – it’s just a quick 15 minute drive to both Smiths Falls and Kemptville, and only 45 minutes to Nepean and Kanata, or just under an hour to downtown Ottawa. Enjoy a peaceful village retreat each evening – whether you work in the city, a neighbouring town, or from your home office.
This 3 Bedroom Victorian Style Home was built in the late-1800’s and is just steps from all of the local shops and dining that Merrickville is best known for. A two-storey brick home, with a wooden verandah and stone edged gardens, this home has great curb appeal! Picture waving to your neighbours as they go by on their evening walks while enjoying a good book and cup of tea before the sun sets in the summer months, or bundling up and helping the kids build a snowman in the front yard on a snowy winter day.
This home has been lovingly restored to include hardwood flooring throughout, with original wood trim and baseboards. There is evidence of quality workmanship in the finishes of the trim, bannisters and railings throughout the home.
The Main Level includes a front entry that opens into the living room, or leads you into the large dining room, where there is a wood stove, for extra warmth on chilly nights. A pass-thru window connects the kitchen to the dining room, and allows for ease of food transportation and clean up at dinner time. The dining room features a wood ceiling, and the kitchen has a unique coved ceiling with a wooden accent, both of which lend to the overall Victorian feel of this home.
Traditional wooden elements extend into the new addition at the back of the home, mixing a bit of the old with the new. This extra space would loan well to a small licensed home daycare, a small dance studio, or as an instructing space for music lessons, after school tutoring. Formerly used as a hair salon, it could easily be transformed back into a salon, whether for hair, aesthetics, or for a sports therapist or masseuse to use as a treatment space.
With a bit of renovation you could realize your dreams to running a bed and breakfast – perfectly located steps from downtown Merrickville, ideal for weekend getaways!
The Upper Level offers your Master Bedroom with the addition of a sitting room or den that features a balcony overlooking the backyard. This bonus room could easily be transformed into a home office to support your downstairs business, or a nursery depending on your needs. There is also a second bedroom, and a full bathroom on the second floor.
From your front door it’s less than 10 minutes to walk anywhere in Merrickville – the furthest is the historical Blockhouse Museum and the lockstations, but it will take much longer when you stop along the way at any number of the boutiques, shops or restaurants. You can spend the colder months learning new skills through workshops in glass blowing at Gray Art Glass, or bath bomb and soap making at 1890.
If you enjoy walking or hiking, there are a number of trails that can be enjoyed year-round thanks to the Merrickville District Trails Society.
Spend your weekends relaxing while you listen to new music that you picked up at Vinyl Destination, or savouring a homemade ice cream cone from the Downtown Ice Cream Shoppe, or the Sidecar Café & Ice Cream Shop.
When friends visit for lunch, you’re sure to have a great time at The Village Bean Coffee House, or take them for dinner at the historic Baldachin Inn before walking the few steps back home to spend the evening catching up in your cozy village abode.
