Welcome to 343 Hedge Road, a wonderful waterfront property with a charming century home situated within the Sutton community of Georgina.
Nestled along the beautiful shoreline of Lake Simcoe, this property has private access to the lake. Steps lead down to a mid-level wood deck overlooking the water, while another set takes you down to another deck at the water’s edge - where from canoeing, kayaking or simply relaxing under the summer sun can be enjoyed.
A premium-sized lot, the main property is mostly surrounded by cedar hedges, has rustic wood fencing along the roadside, a majestic oak tree in the front yard, and beautiful perennial gardens - and both the front and back yards offer exceptional outdoor play and entertaining space with plenty of privacy. There are five separate structures on the property: the main homestead; a triple car garage with loft storage; a oversized garage/workshop with three sets of doors; a large storage shed/workshop with a single car door; and a smaller storage shed with a single car door.
Much of the original character of this century home can still be seen - the size and shape of the bedrooms and the windows; the interior wall, window, and door trims; and the baseboards - while throughout the home are warm wood finishes, which include hardwood flooring, interior doors, wall and ceiling trims, and the staircase to the upper level. Another charming feature of days gone by can be seen in three of the upper level bedrooms - wall mounted sinks that allowed families to wash up without taking up valuable time in the main washroom (all these sinks are currently for decorative use only).
There are also four entries into the home - one through the front family/sun room, one off the formal dining room, one via the laundry/mudroom, and the last one is a back door entrance at the rear of the home. Through the rear entry is a hallway leading into the kitchen - and off this hall is a 3-pc washroom and the combined laundry and mud room.
The kitchen has space for a cozy breakfast area, access to the unfinished basement, as well as a secondary staircase to what was probably once a maid’s quarters, and which is now utilized as a bonus bedroom. A naturally bright work area, the kitchen also features a beamed ceiling with panel lighting, and offers great cabinetry storage and plenty of work space.
Both the formal dining and living rooms have hardwood flooring - with the dining room additionally featuring French door entries into the living and family rooms, while the stairs to the upper level and a storage closet can also found off this lovely entertaining space.
The formal living room is quite large, and has two distinct entertaining areas - a conversation and reading area centred around a brick fireplace - and a parlour on the east side of the room for playing the piano-forte. Another French door entry from this room opens into the family/sun room, which wraps around from the north side of the home to the east side for access to the dining area.
The upper level features hardwood flooring throughout (except for the washroom), four bedrooms, a solarium, and a hallway clothing/storage closet - while a linen closet is found right across from the main washroom featuring a pedestal sink and a clawfoot tub. Just off the washroom is the third bedroom, and where its original closet would have been, has been opened to the fourth bedroom (the ‘maid’s quarters’). Towards the other end of the hallway is the spacious second bedroom, while at the hallway end is a solarium with three walls of windows that is also well suited as a bedroom or hobby room. The master bedroom has a slight turret shape to it, and this room features his and her closets, as well as a fireplace.
