Welcome to one of Aylmer’s most prestigious Century homes! Walking up the front steps you will step back in time with original brick, exquisite stained glass elliptical transom along with manicured landscaping and a canopy of large trees. Opening the door to the enchanting and modernized foyer your eyes sweep through to the original wood banister, high ceilings, new trim and moulding details and jewel adorned chandeliers. A spacious formal living room is inviting with a cheerful yellow hue, large windows and a beautiful fireplace with marble surround. Glass doors with the original vintage hardware open up to an expansive dining room with access to the front hall and kitchen. The centre of the home is a beautifully updated new kitchen with granite counters, stainless appliances with double ovens and wine fridge for entertaining. Overlooking the side yard and fish pond is a dining area with access to the lounge and two piece washroom or to the patio outside. The great room is every entertainer’s dream! It features an updated gas fireplace, with built-in cabinets flanking both sides of the fireplace, a coffered ceiling, bar area with generous seating, additional storage, and a desk area…all overlooking the peace and tranquility of Catfish Creek.
The new primary suite is tucked away on the east side of the home with beautiful mouldings, original fireplace and a door to the side front yard. A brand new primary bathroom includes dual sinks with stone counter, water closet with separate sink, large shower with glass surround and a walk-in closet. Upstairs you will discover a landing flooded with sunlight leading to four bedrooms and a newly updated bathroom featuring double sinks. Each bedroom has plenty of closet space and storage.
In the basement is a large laundry room with cabinets and laundry sink. A theatre room or lounge is the perfect space to retreat to. Finishing off the basement is a workshop, multiple closets for storage and many other uses you can dream up!
The backyard access through patio doors of the family room or off of the garage lead you to plenty of lush lawn to enjoy and a sitting area overlooking the creek. Cool off in the summer in a concrete ‘L’-shaped swimming pool featuring an area for wading and a large area for laps. A new pergola was added for outside dining but have a reprieve from the sun. Inside the heated double car garage there is another two-piece bathroom for pool guests and a solarium for gardening.

History: This Georgian Neoclassic home has hosted generations of family gatherings, tea parties, Christmas morning surprises, BBQ’s and pool parties. From 1875 to 1990, three generations of the Sinclair family have practiced medicine in this house, with an office area accessible through a separate entrance from the living quarters, perfect for an in-home office or commercial space. They passed the torch to the current owners who lovingly cared for the home and modernized key elements of the home all while maintaining the historical character and beloved charm.
