This home is a beautiful show piece of Kingston limestone architecture, and was built in 1843 for successful merchants Watkins and Muckleston when Kingston was anticipated to remain the Capital of Canada. There are few private carriageways intact in Sydenham Ward, and this one features cobblestones original to downtown Kingston, and leads to one of the best courtyards and gardens in the city. Much of the original charm and features of the home are still present – there are scratch marks on the carriageway gates made by the 19th century carriages that passed through this space to the one time communal stables at the rear of the property, and the shutters on the dining room windows are original to the house. Period hardware has also been retained on the doors and other windows. The main floor features a formal living room and separate dining room. Upstairs there are four full bedrooms plus a 3 piece bathroom updated in 2015. The fully finished basement features a second kitchen and 3 piece bathroom, plus a walkout to the private courtyard at the rear of the house. There is even a working dumbwaiter between the basement kitchen and the main floor kitchen. The separate side entrance offers plenty of versatility. Ample parking for 3-4 small cars. Knob and tube wiring removed in the 1980s. Upper Canada Stone House Group has maintained the stone work over the past four decades, including restoring the tower this past spring. This is a unique opportunity to own a piece of history in downtown Kingston, steps from City Hall and the waterfront. Call today for your private viewing.
