Located in the heart of the Cross-Melville Heritage District with tree lined streets and 19th century homes, awaits an opportunity to own a magnificent Victorian situated on a rare 1.5+ acre ravine lot. Built as a duplex in 1890, this stunning home has been meticulously converted into a single-family masterpiece.

Situated behind a 10-foot cedar privacy hedge with a beautiful perennial front garden, the home backs onto its own protected forest with a private creek running through the property. The bridge across the creek takes to you .84 acres of your private forest which is designated as Open Space Conservation (OSC). The OSC zoning protects the land from urban development due to its physiographic characteristics or their ecological significance with the intention that these lands are maintained in their natural state.

Nestled amongst the trees in the private forest is a 384 sq. ft double lofted cabin with a wrap-around covered porch, plenty of windows, a wood burning stove, electrical service and baseboard heaters, perfect for an office, artist studio, hobby space, playhouse or entertainment space when having a campfire or BBQ in the picnic/firepit area in the middle of the forest.

The main part of the home features 3 large principle rooms, a spacious eat-in kitchen with brick pizza oven and stunning floor to ceiling windows throughout the rear of the property inviting the gardens and forest to become part of the inside living space. Across the back of the home spans balconies and floor to ceiling windows on both levels. The upper level has 5 bedrooms (one currently used as an office and a second is used as a playroom), with a balcony looking over the forest in the principal bedroom. There are also two 4-piece bathrooms, a laundry room and plenty of closet space including a dressing room off the principal bathroom.

The walk-out lower level has been designed to allow for a self-contained in-law suite with multiple walk outs, in-floor heating, and a series of exterior French doors. Complete with an additional kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and large living space, this level can function as an in-law suite, guest suite, or as an extension of the main home for entertaining or family recreation.

There are also two attached double garages with plenty of room for a workshop.

The home has been used several times over the past few years as a film set for both made for TV and theatre release movies, including most recently “Inn for Christmas” and “The Color of Love”, both Lifetime Hallmark movies, “Letter to Satan Claus” a SyFy Channel release, and the soon to be released in theaters “Maternal” directed and starting Megan Follows along with AmyBeth McNaulty, Colm Feore and Kris-Holden Reid.
