Ten foot ceilings and original crown mouldings all serve to give a spacious an elegant and airy feel to the home.

Both the Living Room and Dining Room have French doors fitted with cremone hardware that give onto the front and side porches. Custom cabinetry has been built throughout the Den and Kitchen. The Kitchen features Caesarstone countertops and a 15’6” centre island. All appliances and fittings are high end Kitchen Aid Professional series. The stove is a 36″ dual fuel 6 burner range with an under hood infrared warming shelf. This is a wonderful entertaining space. It overlooks a gorgeous secluded courtyard surrounded by trellis and climbing vines.

The Master Bedroom and Sitting Room is a spacious private suite giving a feeling of separation from the rest of the house.

Very few of these Ontario Style cottages come on the market so this is a rare opportunity to own one of the most charming homes in Port Hope. The house is within walking distance of the Penryn (Port Hope) Golf Club, Via Rail, Trinity College School, main street shopping, the beach and the famous Capitol Theatre.
