Lovingly restored to its former glory, this prestigious 1853 urban estate designed by Joseph Power is truly one of a kind. It integrates the formal elegance of an earlier era with the ease and comforts of contemporary living, provides stunning vistas of Lake Ontario and City Park, and features a courtyard hidden from the passing world by an ancient cedar hedge. This is one of Kingston’s most enchanting homes! Come in from the wraparound veranda to the entry hall, library, and dining room, where columned arches, quarter-sawn oak panelling, fireplaces, and coffered ceilings lend patina and coziness. Stained-glass transoms cap huge windows with oak shutters. In the living and music rooms, crystal chandeliers, deep crown mouldings, and alluring details add grandeur. Whether you’re entertaining large groups or small, these rooms are beautiful and livable. From the screened sunporch, enjoy views of MacDonald Park and the UNESCO World Heritage Murney Tower; from the glass-walled solarium, look onto the courtyard garden, perennial bird sanctuary, and stone patio complete with a ‘swimming’ granite fish! Through the adjoining mudroom, you’ll find a powder room and an updated butler’s pantry leading to an exquisite chef’s kitchen, with floor-to-ceiling custom maple cabinetry, high-end appliances, Limoges door-pulls, and access to the huge, high-and-dry basement. On the second floor, lit by a stained-glass masterpiece, you’ll discover four bedrooms and a study with soaring ceilings, artisan-restored plaster and mouldings, two full bathrooms, extensive storage, two charming balconies, and attic access, plus an additional bed and bath within a fully appointed guest suite with lake views and private access. The renovated Coach House houses two beautiful apartments with off-street parking and private garden space. Steps to the Waterfront Trail, Queen’s and KGH, an easy walk to downtown shops, restaurants, and bars… Parkview House represents stewardship at its finest. Welcome home!
