Classic Yellow Brick Victorian Home Just Listed

This grand Victorian home has history to tell! This character home built in 1880, has had a number of people step into her inviting foyer. Once a former physician’s practice and has also been a B&B. Large spacious principle rooms that are flooded with natural light from the ample sized windows. The large country kitchen overlooks the private deck and the serene backyard. There is a two piece bath off of the kitchen and the door off of the deck, handy for when you’re hosting a crowd.

Upstairs you’re greeted by four large size bedrooms off of the large open hallway complete with original wood floors. The master suite has a four piece ensuite. The main bathroom features a clawfoot tub, and separate shower. Also on the upper level is a fifth bedroom and laundry facilities- no more lugging those baskets up or down flights of stairs!

Once we venture out into the backyard oasis, we are greeted with a large deck area, with natural gas supply for the BBQ. Off partway down the garden is the gazebo, compete with hydro, the perfect retreat to enjoy your morning coffee. There’s even a tire swinging from a tree to inspire the youth in us or the kids around us, and a detached garage for the handyperson or hobbyist to putter about in.

A short walk to downtown shops, cafes, parks and all of the amenities Mount Forest has to offer!  

Rise In Centre Wellington Home Prices Exceeds National Average

House prices have continued to rise, and Centre Wellington is no exception. Our median sales price of a freehold home in April 2017 was $535,000 compared to $380,000 only a year earlier! Perhaps that partly skewed by the number of higher priced river front and luxury properties, but comparing the previous few months shows a similar trend. Sale price increases over last year for March 12.5%, February 32.2% and Januray 26.9%.
Real estate and home ownership has always been one of the best investments we can make, but with these rapid price increases it is becoming increasingly difficult for our younger generation of home buyers to afford their first home.

Canadian house prices continue to march higher, with the average price of one sold in April hitting $559,317 — an increase of more than 10 per cent in a year.
