John Draffin House

For Sale

Welcome to the peace and tranquility of the John Draffin House in the village of Newboro. This property will simply take your breath away with the beautifully landscaped grounds and the grand stone manor. This home was built circa 1860 and was the home of John Draffin, a local merchant. It was sold in 1895 and became the Anglican rectory until 1945. The house sits just a short walk away from Newboro Lake, in the heart of Rideau Lakes. This fully renovated and stunning limestone home sits on an estate sized lot with over 2 acres of sprawling property that has been lovingly landscaped with large mature trees, flowers, shrubs and lawns. Entering the home through the main foyer is simply breathtaking with a grand central staircase, woodworking and craftsmanship that you just don’t see any more. On the main level there is a large kitchen with attached dining room, a parlour currently set up as a bedroom, a second bedroom, 2pc. bath, large living room and a bright and spacious sunroom that has to be one of the favourite rooms of this house. On the second floor, there are 3 further bedrooms, one with an ensuite bath, another full bath with laundry area plus a huge back room set up with four beds. The expansive 3rd floor loft has exposed wood beams and is currently set up as an exercise studio but offers so many options. Beside the home is a carriage house with a garage and a bachelor apartment above. This property offers so many options - a Bed & Breakfast, wellness retreat, spa or it could be your next home. Located just minutes away from all the amenities of Westport, including cafes, restaurants, shopping and a winery! Exceptional property!
