Special Stone Home | 19 George St.

Special Stone Home | 19 George St.



This truly special stone home enjoys an idyllic setting steps from the scenic Irvine River which meanders through the Elora Gorge. Especially attractive is the fact the road in front of the home dead ends at the walking bridge over the river with access to Salem Park. No vehicle traffic here. And only a 7 minute walk to Salem school for the kids. Originally built in 1854 by the founder of Salem, Sem Wissler for his son Ezra, it was operated as a dry goods general store and local post office. In 1997, the current owners bought the property and lovingly and painstakingly transformed it over the years into the beautiful family home it is today. There is definitely a very distinctive European feel to the property with its outside courtyard surrounded by mature landscaped gardens and stone wall. The home itself offers 2000 square feet of finished living space with 4 bedrooms. The main level is an open concept floorplan with kitchen, dining and sitting area, featuring a gorgeous stone fireplace. An expansive separate artist studio with its own entrance is also on the main level. Not an artist? That’s ok. The space would make an amazing great room. The second floor here also offers a cozy family room with gas fireplace. If you are looking for a character century home in a very desired quiet location on a large lot minutes to Downtown Elora, this is the one.
