Take in the breathtaking views over the Picton Harbour. Watch the sailboats. Catch the morning sun. Relax in the gazebo in your private gardens. Towering over Picton Harbour, this majestic “Italianate” stone home, built in 1859, has passed between only a few families. Historically known as the Sills/Hepburn house, it is widely recognized for its grandeur and elegance. The rooftop “lantern” with clear and stained glass panels”, also known as the “Belvedere”, is accessed from the second floor, offering stunning views of the ships further down the harbour. One of the first homes built in the area, the impressive presence of this home led this neighbourhood to become one of the more affluent neighbourhoods in the county for many generations. Boasting twelve foot ceilings, gorgeous wood floors and a spectacular entrance with an elegant staircase, it has kept its historic elegance. Tall windows allow the sunlight to stream in. Six bedrooms on the second floor and four bathrooms. With the main floor, second floor, cupola and the full basement, this home has over 5000 square feet of living space. The home was a licensed STA (Bed and Breakfast) until August 2021. Many improvements have been made to this home. Walk to restaurants, shops, the harbour and the yacht club, schools, library, galleries. It’s all right here.
