Property description

This charming Early Gothic Ontario cottage is your home away from home. On a quiet residential street one block from the Avon river park system, this house and property give you all the excitement of the city with all the peace and tranquility of cottage life. An easy walk to world-class theatres, unique shopping, fine restaurants and galleries. Enjoy all the excitement Stratford has to offer, then come home to savor the peace…

This family home has been lovingly restored by a professional designer with your comfort and convenience in mind. The house is ground floor accessible, with a screened front porch and back patio. The two elegant main floor bedrooms will sleep four, fine linens provided.

The open living room, with working fireplace and twelve foot ceilings exudes an old world ambience, with a chef's library to transport you to exotic locales. The dining table seats eight comfortably, but you will likely prefer to eat your meals outside.

Please make yourself at home on the private back garden patio. There is a gas grill waiting for you to cook meals before or after theatre. The full working kitchen is conveniently located close to the patio. If you prefer, the owners (professionally trained chefs) will be happy to cook for you. Simply enquire with your booking and we will custom design a menu for one special meal or as many as you please.

The bright three piece bathroom also has a whirlpool tub. Other amenities include wireless internet, and has a high efficiency washer and dryer for your convenience. lots of onsite parking and we are non-smoking.

Arrive, settle in, relax in the freedom of your own place for the time you are here, and enjoy the many charms of Stratford, of which this home is surely one.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Born and raised in Stratford, I am a chef educator by training. Currently I teach children and adults how to grow and cook their own food, as well as lead Slow Food Youth in many activities related to food. An avid hiker, I can be found walking at the Upper Thames Conservation Authority, where I also own a cottage (which I stay at during the summer, which leaves the house free for you!)

Why the Owner Chose Stratford, ON, Canada:
The house is so charming and convenient to downtown, I had to buy it!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is 140 years old and has been lovingly cared for so it still possesses many of its original architectural features. Whether it is the high baseboards, pine floors, original windows or large living room, the house is lovely, warm and inviting.
