Property description

Built in the late 1700s this is one of the first homes built in the area. This majestic home has all the conveniences of modern day but the charm of the past.

Centrally located to many area attractions with Fort Wellington (famous in the battle of 1812), Fort Henry to the West, Upper Canada village, Chrysler park a wild life Bird Sanctuary to the East, Remington Museum and Upper State NY to the south, Ottawa the Nations Capital to the North.

A charming tree-lined entrance greets you as you enter the drive off the Waterfront Trail which extends from Prince Edward County to Cornwall Ontario.

The home is situated on three acres of land that is shared with the owner's home. The home is situated on the hill will allows for a beautiful panoramic waterfront view of the mighty St. Lawrence river.

The stately residence has a lovely eat-in kitchen, formal dining room, huge living room and two updated full bathrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs. Many upgrades have been done always keeping in mind preserving the historic look of the home. This home is ideal for family reunions, multiple family get together or as a spot to hang out in the evening while taking advantage of its proximity to many area attractions. Your guests will be impressed with the calibre of the accommodation and of course, the view.

Hardwood/softwood floors are throughout most of the home, except of course the bathrooms and kitchen! For your convenience there is washing machine and dryer on site. Kayaks are also available (Canoes for experienced paddlers) to explore Island and part of the old canal.

In among the shoreline there is a smooth rock surface allowing you to get in and swim or boat. There is also a sand box area for children to play. The gentle current to the west and slightly greater current to the east keeps the shoreline free of weeds. Lots of great places allow the river's edge or islands off shore to visit and view wildlife. You will feel like you are a pioneer back in the 1700's! FYI: Years ago, the Adams family used to bring their cows to the closest large island (Spencer island also know as Adams island) each spring by swimming them across the shallow channel behind a small power boat.

The Old Stone Home is located in a picturesque shallow bay, with very little boat traffic as the bay ends several hundred yards past the home. The shipping channel is two miles/three kilometres away from both homes, so there is no chance of someone being swamped in a canoe by the waves of a 1000 foot freighter. Bring your fishing rod, the fishing ranges from good to great!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Both Randy and I are relatively newbies to the area having lived her just under 20 years.

Why the Owner Chose Brockville:
When we first purchased we had been living in a smaller cottage in the area for a number of years. Initially we thought to rent it for a few years and move in when the kids were older. The advent of our third child made us rethink and we built a home a bit south and west of this historic home. Why this home? When I first walked in the home I had an ovewhelming sense of history. A glimpse of the past. This home is one of the pioneer homes of the area. It is truly one of the most historic homes in the area and we feel honoured to be able to share it with others.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Really nice place for large families or a couple of families. Lots of space to eat either at the kitchen table or the formal dining room table (both fit more than 10). So you don't need to pack up the chess or monopoly game at meal time. Lots of place to get away from the action like the second story closed in porch with a beautiful view of the river, sit on the large window sills in the bedrooms to read a book or outside on the large interlock patio overlooking the St. Lawrence river and Island.
