Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

Why the Owner Chose Historic Old Town, Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON, Canada:
We have always loved Niagara-on-the-Lake as we both grew up in this area and our family lives near by. We wanted to find a heritage home in the historical district and had been looking for some time when we came across this charmer. We knew the minute we walked through the front door and saw all the exposed wooden beams we knew that we would be putting an offer on it! Avalon was built in the late 1820's. We have the documentation showing the first sale of the property back in 1820 when it was first traded for 600 GBP($1000 CAD). In those days the currency used was the GBP. The house was in excellent shape. All we needed to do was a bit of decorating and we added the swimming pool and enhanced the landscaping. Before we purchased it in 2006, it was a successful B&B and the previous owner took great care of it. We try to stay there ourselves when it is not being enjoyed by guests. We love the fact that the house is a half a block to Queen St and the car is never necessary except for arriving and leaving the town.
