David Smith House (Fairmount)

A rare opportunity to own one of Port Hope’s most romantic and grand homes.  Designed in the gothic style, the unique construction includes a stucco exterior with cross gables, a steep roof and unique decorative trim.  Retaining many of its original features, this home craves a continued sympathetic restoration to restore its original grandeur. 

The main level boasts large light filled formal living and dinning rooms, with original oversized fireplaces and plaster moldings.  A gracious entry showcases the beautiful curved stairway leading to five bedrooms on the second floor, each with its own character. There is the opportunity for a large main floor master suite overlooking the garden.  An additional feature is a self contained “Granny Flat” which has it’s own private entrance.

Situated on over four acres, the property features period barns, mature perennial gardens and offers privacy and tranquility, all within a few minutes walk to historic downtown Port Hope.

 Walkable to all amenities including Trinity College.
