In the quaint village of Glen Morris, steps from the Grand River lies a “Century Stone Georgian Style Manor” nestled on .82 acre lot.
Built in 1862, the majestic home plays homage to a buy gone era when craftsmanship was the hallmark of structural masterpiece. The Christopher Latshaw house is a 2 storey home of the field stone architectural style.
The facade of the home is symmetrical presenting a centre gable, centre door and large sash windows. Connected to the house is a specious (recently renovated) tiled & heated 3.5 car garage – perfect for the car buff or someone needing extra space for their toys.
As you enter the front foyer, one can’t help but notice the beautiful bevelled glass windows framing the large front door and the exquisite ornate light fixture.
The wide main staircase with its detailed woodwork falls in the middle of the foyer.
The Grand Living Room, (a Ballroom in the past) features 11.5 ft ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, ornate moldings & cornices & the original “Belgian Fireplace” that highlights this formal room. The spacious formal dining room with wide plank pine floors & oversized baseboards seats 10 + people comfortably. The large corner windows streams natural sunlight in this special room. To the rear of the house is a large country kitchen, with cherry cabinetry, island counter and a side walkout to the stone patio features the fire pit and BBQ. This home offers 2 offices, perfect for those working at home or looking for a quiet place to read.
The generous Family Room off the kitchen offers newer flooring, built in wooden cabinetry and a beautiful wood burning fireplace. The side wall features wall to wall garden doors that open up to a huge deck overlooking the inground pool and the rear yard with spectacular views of the pastures beyond!
On the upper level – this country haven features a large Primary Bedroom, huge walk in closet and ensuite. A few steps away are additional 3 bedrooms and a large 4 piece bath.
Every room comes equipped with large windows sharing views of the rural properties and green pastures. The lower level (added over the years) includes a 3 pc bath and a large room which opens up to a beautifully manicured yard and pool. Entertain on the the newly built deck or enjoy the lazy days of summer by the heated pool. While much of this gracious home has retained the original 19th century architecture, several mechanical updates have been completed! The Century home is perfect for the outdoor adventurer. Located just minutes from the Grand River, this rural property provides ample opportunities for hiking, canoeing, and fishing. Walking distance to schools. This is a rare gem and one that must be seen to be believed.
