$699,900 includes the Converted Church Residence, the garage and the RV, along with the 2 hot tubs, the Finnish Sauna, the dishwasher, 11' pew and original church organ.
This beautifully renovated former Church is an Energy Star 84 residence and B&B and Day Spa operation, nestled in peaceful and picturesque Lanark Highlands. Formerly St. Andrew’s United Church, in the hamlet of Watson’s Corners, the original 1894 building has been converted into a unique, open concept, two bedroom residence. 17ft ceilings showcase the wrought iron, spiral staircase leading to the loft, overlooking the living room and kitchen. The loft features the residence’s master bedroom, large 4 pc bath, ‘his’ and ‘hers’ walk in closets, plus a storage closet. Use of local wood siding and beams give stunning effect to the open space. The propane heating for the residence totals only about $700, annually.
Just under an hour from Ottawa, this 3,200 sq ft Bed and Breakfast, Day Spa and Residence represents the ultimate in rural living, guest accommodation and relaxation, energy efficiency and sustainable design.
Like the residence, Circa 1894 B&B and Day Spa is designed with sustainability in mind. The former Sunday School, built in the late 1970’s was a ‘back to the studs’ total renovation in 2014/15. Converted to a two guestroom Bed and Breakfast, it also boasts a living area, kitchenette, 3 pc bathroom and 2 storage closets. (circa1894.com)
Built in 2015 to Passive House Energy Standards, the attached relaxing Spa (circa1894.ca) has an additional cozy guest bedroom; a reception area; two change rooms (ladies and gents-both with showers); a relaxation/quiet room, with propane fireplace; the sauna area, and a 2 pc bathroom. Step outside onto 3 levels of decking, totaling nearly 1000 sq ft. where you will find the tubs and the Finnish Sauna (included in listing price).
The 27’ Golden Falcon RV, with its own lovely patio, is used as a B&B rental, in season. It sleeps up to 4.
The 4 car, fully powered and heated garage is used, currently, as a 2 car garage and fully functioning woodworking shop. There is on street and off street parking space for 10 cars or more.
Additionally, for an extra cost, the NIR and FAR Infrared Saunas, along with all the furniture and fixtures needed to make this a turnkey operation, are available, as are the appliances, including: Heartland Propane Stove, Stainless Steel Fridge, a second fridge, an upright freezer, front loading washer and dryer and much, much more.
Lanark Highlands suffers from a shortage of local accommodations, making Circa 1894 B&B a growth opportunity. With relaxation and rejuvenation now being given the attention it deserves, the potential for the Day Spa operation is even greater. This property is the only oasis of its kind in Eastern Ontario, making it an opportunity of a lifetime for the right buyer. Is that you?
The Highlands includes many attractions, including numerous lakes for water sports and fishing; hunting; skiing; 4 golf courses, and several annual festivals that attract visitors from all over the world. Only 25 minutes from historic Perth, one hour from downtown Ottawa and 3.5 hrs from Toronto, Circa 1894 B&B and Day Spa provides a secondary income stream and an opportunity for easy country living, close to the city. Don't miss out on this gem of a property. Now that summer is upon us, it's a perfect time to call for a viewing.
