Property description

This historical home was built in 1876 as a wedding gift for the builder's daughter. It has been restored to the magnificence of it's grand style while also incorporating some modern features. Private ensuite bathrooms and fully equipped kitchen included in price.

We purchased the home from the Catholic Church who used it as a convent from the 1960's till we purchased it. During that time the bedrooms were divided into many small bedrooms to accommodate the nuns that lived there. After we purchased it, we decided to restore it to its original number bedrooms while adding a private ensuite bathroom for each one.

We offer special rates for special events - if you may be interested in renting our house, send me an inquiry!
