Port Hope, ON
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.
