Whether you know it as Drew Cottage or Hillside this home is an utterly enchanting local landmark. With only five owners in total, now is your less than once in a lifetime opportunity to be the new Steward of this property - Woodstock's oldest standing residence. Built over the course of four years beginning in 1828 by one of Woodstock's Founding Father's, Captain Andrew Drew, this home was built from the Admiral's disassembled ship. The mast of the ship still stands proud at the front of the home bearing our Country's flag, a country that wouldn't exist for nearly forty years after the foundation of this home was laid. Architecturally known as a Regency Cottage, the curb appeal and grandeur of this property are undeniable and the nearly acre of lush grounds themselves completely dazzling. Gas lanterns warmly invite you into the circular drive and a stunning wrap around porch beckons you to sit down, relax on a rocking chair, or would you prefer to lounge by the pool? Why don't we step inside the formal front entry with original hand blown glass and just take it all in - the soaring 11 foot coffered ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, centre hall archway, original pine floors, fireplaces at every turn, the light flowing in the breakfast room as it dances off the mature trees outside, that TRIM! But don't let the charm of this home fool you, while this may look like a bungalow that indeed could allow for fully main floor living with its traditionally English ground level master suite, this house also boasts a second storey with four additional bedrooms, a four piece bathroom and storage to spare - 3600+ square feet of finished living space plus 1000+ in storage, not even including the basement! Just imagine the magic that is the holiday season in this home - book your showing today and spend the most wonderful time of the year living in the most stunning home in Woodstock. (id:4069)
