Property Description

Welcome to the historic Algie Family House, a captivating Victorian Gothic nestled in the heart of Alton. This charming village has retained its historic charm and offers a delightful array of experiences, dining options, and attractions, making it an ideal place to settle down.
This stone residence, boasting a steep gabled roof, stands as a testament to timeless elegance. Constructed at the same time as the neighbouring Mill, it shares the same meticulously quarried local limestone, a nod to the rich heritage of the area.
Additions to the home introduce a subtle contrast with board and batten cladding, seamlessly blending old-world charm with a touch of contemporary flair. Upon entering the house, a covered patio beckons, leading to a spacious mudroom with a generously sized closet and access to the convenient powder room. The journey continues into the inviting eat-in kitchen, filled with light and characterized by its ample cupboard space and room for a breakfast table. More than just a kitchen, it's also a gateway to the formal dining room and cozy family room, perfect for relaxing around the wood-burning fireplace surrounded by forest views. The dining room, filled with delightful details, smoothly connects to the sunroom, offering breathtaking views of the Mill Pond that mirror the stunning scenery seen from the living room.
Venturing upstairs reveals the primary and second bedrooms, each adorned with walk-in closets, while the third bedroom is a great size. The trio is serviced by a four-piece bath, complete with a distinctive sink, adding a touch of uniqueness to the space.
More than just a home, this residence is surrounded by trees, sitting on just over half an acre, and fronts on the Mill Pond. Walking trails beckon you to explore the natural beauty that surrounds you. Beyond the tranquil setting, take a few steps to the historic Mill and immerse yourself in the thriving arts, culture, and events Alton has become known for. Delight in the convenience of being within walking distance of delicious restaurants, like Ray's Bakery and Gather Cafe, which add a flavorful touch to your daily life. Alton boasts proximity to essential amenities such as schools, parks, and the luxurious Millcroft Inn & Spa. Outdoor enthusiasts will appreciate the village's proximity to the scenic Caledon Trail, the challenging Osprey Valley Golf Club, the serene Shaws Creek, and the Caledon Ski Club for winter activities.
This residence is not only a home but a cherished piece of Alton's history, awaiting new chapters to be written within its storied walls. Embrace the tranquillity, cultural vibrancy, and culinary delights surrounding this enchanting property.
