There are two words to describe a newly-listed Prince Edward County (PEC) home: charmingly sophisticated. Or, if you prefer, sophisticatedly charming.
Located in the heart of Picton at 50 Bowery Street -- within walking distance to all the goodness-packed local amenities -- it's the type of home that invites a feeling of Hallmark movie-like coziness, year-round. You know, the type of spot that goes perfectly with a tea, nowhere to be, and a book you can't put down.
The peaceful and picture-perfect home is currently listed at $1,389,000.
Originally built in 1890, the 2,926-square-foot, three-bedroom, two bathroom home is meticulously maintained and renovated with all the modern conveniences, but still retains its original feel-good, historic country home character.
Details like a charming front veranda, high ceilings, and peaceful screened-in porch add to this appeal.
A large and modern chef’s kitchen boasts cherry wood floors and caters to the cooks in the house, with granite countertops and no shortage of counter space, a large central island, double sinks, a prep sink, storage, high-end appliances, and even a gas fireplace. For el fresco dining (minus the mosquitos), the kitchen features a walk-out to the screened-in porch.
Like the kitchen, the large and sun-filled living and dining rooms are perfect for entertaining friends and family.
Upstairs, the home features a large main bedroom with generous storage and closet space, as well as two additional bedrooms. This floor also features a room with skylights that makes the perfect studio space, home gym, or office. A large and pristine bathroom features double sinks and a heated tiled floor.
