The historic Gates farmhouse in the desirable east end of Kingston is available for sale. In a quiet established neighbourhood surrounded by woodland and bordered by the St. Lawrence River, this stately home is in close proximity to downtown Kingston, within walking distance to a public waterfront park, and features a beautiful garden and a detached 2+ car garage on 0.7 level acres. The brick and limestone two-story farmhouse was extensively and lovingly restored and renovated beginning in 2007, with original hardwood floors, woodwork, and antique tin ceilings exposed and refinished. The stately design features a columned front entrance, large bay windows with limestone sills, high ceilings throughout, a large modern kitchen with custom cabinets, an elegant formal dining room, and a sun room and patio area off the garden. There are 4 generous bedrooms and two full bathrooms on the second level, and a third bathroom and laundry room off the kitchen. An attached garden shed, an unfinished basement with stone walls, and a large attic space with full plywood subfloor provide ample room for storage, workshops, or future home expansion. The garden features a range of fruit trees and flowering bushes, and a large area for growing vegetables -- the “truck garden” original to the 1878 farmstead. A rooftop solar panel system significantly offsets energy costs thanks to the generous terms of the Ontario government’s microFIT program and the heat pump. (id:28880)
