Property Description

Built in 1888, the McGowan/Preston House situated on the corner of McCarthy and Faulkner has retained it's historic charm while being updated to feature not only all of the modern conveniences you've come to expect but also a separately metered legal two bedroom apartment!

A stunning example of Queen Anne architecture, this home stands out among the rest. The perfect mix of old and new, you'll want to see this beauty for yourself.

You’re welcomed into the main home by a serene covered porch before opening to the foyer with stunning arched staircase leading to the second floor. Situated in the turret, you’ll find the family room with curved walls continuing through the pocket doors you enter the living room with fireplace and access to the side yard featuring perennial gardens, a deck and hot tub perfect for relaxing. Back inside, the formal dining room has ample space for family dinners while the updated galley style kitchen is functionally laid out. Just off of that is the large mudroom with laundry, access to the garage, driveway, and rear yard. Finishing the main floor is a four piece bath.
At the top of the beautiful staircase on the second floor you’ll immediately notice the double doors out to the balcony with great views of some of Downtown Orangeville’s quietest streets. The “master” bedroom is located in the turret while the other two bedrooms are a decent size and the second floor is rounded out with a three piece bath. 
One of the most unique parts of this home is the completely finished loft space, currently being used as the master bedroom, which would be perfect for a variety of uses - keep it as the master bedroom, use it as an office, or even a great play room for the kids!
The fully fenced yard is a great place to let the kids play while the home is walking distance to two of the most desired schools in Orangeville.
Built in 1990, the legal two bedroom apartment situated above the garage is separately metered. The current tenant pays $1,000/month and all of their own utilities - all the landlord covers is water! You immediately notice how bright the living room with fireplace and functional kitchen are thanks to the large windows. Two good-sized bedrooms and a four piece bath make this apartment a great income opportunity, or spot for extended family. If you’re not looking to be a full-time landlord but still want to offset your costs, why not use it as an AirBnB thanks to being walking distance to all of the great food, shopping, and festivals Downtown Orangeville has to offer.
