This beautiful 170+ year-old home built on the outskirts of Guelph in the 1850s, this cottage was originally known as “Sussex Place”, which predates the well-recognized 'Idylwyld' mansion next door by some 25 years (now 27 Barber Ave). Sussex Place was first sold in 1872, and would come to be known as the 'Idylwyld Cottage'. It became a historic piece of the 13-acre parcel of land that was further divided up into a beautiful crescent of homes that is arguably one of Downtown Guelph and Exhibition Park areas’ most prestigious ‘bevy’ of homes. This stunning triple-bricked & stone cottage home has 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and soaring 9.5 foot ceilings on the main and lower level. It sits on a hugely spacious nearly ¾ acre lot, with a lower-level sunroom walkout that leads to the dreamy backyard gardens full of old growth maples and rose bushes. Windows were replaced, plumbing was upgraded and there is 200 AMP service. We haven’t even scratched the surface of this home’s rich history of being a sanctuary and a place where love grows. There’s no surprise that the current owners have lived in and deeply enjoyed this home since 1985. (id:48850)
