Niagara-on-the-Lake house description

Welcome to our century home in Niagara in the village of Jordan Station.

Here you will find yourselves in the heart of the Twenty Valley Niagara wine region with over 30 wonderful wineries, many provincial parks, shopping, restaurants, and award-winning golf courses all nearby. You will be only a 25-minute drive to Niagara Falls or Niagara-on-the-Lake (and the Shaw Festival) and less than an hour from Toronto or Buffalo/Fort Erie. Our house is set in a small village of century homes with nearby orchards and vineyards. It is just a 2-minute drive or 15-minute walk from Jordan Village and it's quaint and stylish shops and restaurants and the Inn On The Twenty.

Our house is a renovated century home built in 1909 and is loaded with character and charm in addition to being comfortably furnished. The main floor consists of a large, gourmet-friendly, country-kitchen with a large kitchen table to sit at and talk or eat. The kitchen looks out onto the spacious deck with patio furniture and a large, landscaped yard. Just off the kitchen is a bathroom (including a shower) and the laundry room.

The living room is at the front of the house and looks out onto our wrap-around porch. It is furnished with comfortable chairs and sofa, perfect for a quiet afternoon reading or napping. (Almost all of the rooms in the house have a collection of books for your reading pleasure.) Next to the sitting room is the dining room with an antique dining table and and a turn-of-the century jam cupboard.

On the second floor you will find the master bedroom with a queen-sized bed and a large walk-in closet. The second bedroom is also on this floor with a double-bed, antique dresser and charming, hand-painted wall mural. The main bathroom is large and modern, and has a wonderful full bath tub, perfect for a long soak and book read!

The third floor of the house is the attic-loft that has been recently renovated. It is spacious and bright with sitting chairs, a futon double-bed and a single bed tucked away in one of the alcoves. The loft also has a flat-screen HD-TV and DVD player with an interesting selection of movies/TV-series for your enjoyment. There's also a collection of games for everyone to enjoy.

Bonnie and I look forward to hearing from you and hope you have a wonderful stay in Niagara.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: Bonnie and James Young live in Toronto but sneak-away to Jordan Station whenever they can to their country house in Niagara.

              Why the Owner Chose Niagara-on-the-Lake:
              We have been visiting the Niagara wine region for years and came to the realization that we should make it a more permanent part of our lives. One day we hope to retire in the area.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Our Jordan Station house is over 100 years old, built for the son of this small town's patriarch from the 19th century. It was fully renovated just a few years ago and we have continued to update the house since becoming the owners in 2010. Only one hour from Toronto, our Niagara house is one of our dreams come true and we hope your time spent in the heart of the Niagara region will become a memory of perfection!
