About the Property

Graceful & Charming is the best way to describe this solid 2 storey brick home centrally located in Port Elgin. Enjoy the summer breezes on the wrap around porch of this century home which has been painstakingly restored by the current owner. Successfully operated as the Silken Retreat bed & breakfast since 2011. Completely renovated at that time, the original curved staircase, baseboards and wood trim were preserved, but the lath and plaster were removed and new wiring, plumbing, insulation and drywall were added. The main floor features a large entry foyer, living room with gas fireplace, spacious dining room, bright kitchen with center island & breakfast bar, 4th bedroom and full 4 pc bathroom. The upper level features 3 bedrooms; each with private ensuite. The basement is partially finished with a large laundry utility area and family room. The 122 x 132 lot combined with the special Core Commercial zoning allows for the B & B use, and a myriad of other commercial uses. Spa, Professional Offices, your own private residence, you decide. Beautifully landscaped grounds include gazebo, 2 sheds, a detached 32' by 30' garage which is insulated and has storage loft and a roughed in bath. The energy efficient Viessmann gas boiler heating system provides hot water to 10 separate air handlers that heat in the winter and heat pump for cooling in the summer. There is plenty of parking for as many as 10 cars and additional features include a Gas Standby Generator, central vac, owned tankless gas water heater, pond, hookup for gas BBQ and patio heater plus a Sand point well for lawn watering. Hygrade Metal roof on main house has balance of 50 year warranty. (id:32937)
