213 Evert St., Everton--Just Sold
Gorgeous and Historic Country Home
For those interested in owning a beautiful home with a long and rich history take note. The founder of Everton and the original proprietor of the local mill, Rufus Everts, built this home in the mid 1800s across the road from their mill—which still stands to this day. Ideally situated on a three acre lot surrounded by large mature trees, lilac buses, and locus trees, there is no shortage of naturally beauty around this property. The home perfectly blends the original historic details with modern upgrades. The main floor features an updated country eat-in kitchen with gas fireplace, formal dining room, formal living room and office with nine foot ceilings. Adjacent to the kitchen there is a main floor laundry, 2 piece bathroom, and large mudroom with built-in organizers. Upstairs there are three spacious bedrooms, the master bedroom features walk-in closet with organizers, the upstairs 5 piece bathroom showcases a redone original claw foot tub and heated slate floors. The home was extensively renovated in 2001 with attention to detail everywhere: from the beautifully restored pine and maple floors, original and custom-milled mouldings, original exposed notched plates, to the enclosed front porch over-looking the Mill. The property is heavily wooded with walking paths throughout, and is surrounded by Conservation Land to the North and the East. This property is ideal for anyone that enjoys the pleasures of the outdoors, but wants all the modern conveniences a new home. Located conveniently between Guelph, Erin, and an easy commute to the GTA! This century home is a must see!
