Impressive in every aspect! Meticulously converted over the last few years, with no detail overlooked, this century old church has been transformed into a modern and attractive bungalow, full of character and charm and boasting over 4000 sq ft of living space. The traditional living, dining room and kitchen have been combined into a completely open concept area with soaring 18' ceilings and refinished original wide plank pine floors, where the different spaces blend perfectly into a inviting and warm environment. The living area is dominated by a wood burning fireplace, with floor-to-ceiling stone mantle flanked by original peak arched windows. A dining space offers ample room for family gatherings, with convenient French doors to a multi-level deck, perfect for an indoor/outdoor entertaining space. A beautiful kitchen is the focal point of the main living space. Framed by original wood beams, it features green/grey custom Homestead designed cabinetry with crown moulding and lighting, farm-style double sink, gleaming quartz countertops, contrasting navy blue island with prep sink and breakfast bar with granite countertop; stainless steel high-end appliances, including a beverage fridge and six burner gas stove and tile backsplash. Overlooking the main living area are two lofts. One, at the front of the home and accessible from the atrium, is the original choir gallery which has been turned into a home office / hobby loft, with some of the original benches incorporated into the current design and access to the bell tower with original bell still in place. The second, larger loft, is accessible off the dining area and makes a perfect recroom and play area, with original brick accent wall and wrought iron railing. A mudroom / pantry with access to the basement is located off the atrium, with another mudroom off a side entrance that connects the main living area and the separate, private bedroom wing. A powder room and laundry with dog shower is located between the two areas. The bedroom wing boasts 10' ceilings and 8' doors, with engineered hardwood floors. The home offers four bedrooms, the first three share a five piece main bath with heated floors and quartz countertops, while the master suite boasts a walk-in closet, dressing area and five piece ensuite with separate marble shower, soaker tub, heated floors and marble vanity top. The multi-level deck off the living area is perfect for outdoor entertaining or morning coffee, and boasts a sunken hot-tub with privacy fencing. On the opposite side of the home, another deck off the side entrance offers additional space to enjoy the quiet countryside village setting from. Ample outside storage is available, with two separate attached storage areas, at the side and rear of the house. Four stately, century old maples line the front of the property, lending privacy and creating an appealing outdoor space to enjoy in the summer months. Additional features include: front double doors with gothic transom; roughed-in central vac; two furnaces (one for main living area and one for bedroom wing); surround sound throughout; updated bedroom windows and doors (2012); updated plumbing and electrical (2012) and much more! Also noteworthy, is the location - although situated in a country village setting, the property is less than a 10 minute drive from HW 401 within quick access to KW, Cambridge and Woodstock. Truly a one of a kind, must see property.
