St. Lawrence River
48 Bennett St., Spencerville Ontario
Houses have many interesting stories to tell. I personally find the story of construction of this residence to be fascinating and quite remarkable. This is a one-owner bungalow built in the mid-fifties, the structural construction being overseen by the current owner and his father. Attention to detail in all aspects became the hallmark of the project. Quality products, proven construction methods, and experienced tradesmen!
This homeowner and his dad became aware of two entrepreneurial brothers who resided in the nearby township of Front of Yonge. The brothers, experiencing the challenges of farming the rocky outcrops of the Canadian Shield, the 1000 Islands region, began to realize the potential of the protruding granite knobs and highlands. They began to quarry and hand-cut the local granite stone of abundance into granite bricks. So son and dad purchased and trucked sufficient granite bricks back to Spencerville to ultimately have a mason then lay these bricks as the stone veneer of the house that is seen today. True natural stone withstanding the rigourous test of Mother Natures weather elements!
To complement this feat the basement wall was also formed out of local limestone pieces to create basement walls approaching two feet in thickness. And yes, the wood framing and floor joists are the true 2 thickness. Naturally the subflooring is of sturdy tongue and groove construction. Traditional hardwood flooring is still prevalent and gleaming in the extensive living and dining areas.
All is to simply say . . . this house is structurally sound, displays quality workmanship, and represents lasting value.
True to character this one-owner proprietor has undertaken diligent care and consideration in maintaining and upgrading the house throughout the years. Vinyl windows have been installed; roof was re-shingled with asphalt shingles in 2014; and all bedroom and hallway flooring has been upgraded to quality laminate recently in 2017. A central forced-air furnace serves the heating aspect of the house, and in more recent years a propane stove was installed in the basement to provide greater comfort to the couples office and household needs on that level. Custom oak cabinets highlight the functional, galley-style kitchen area, although there is sufficient space for a breakfast/lunch nook to enjoy convenience dining.
The combined living and more formal dining areas are not only highlighted by the aforementioned glistening hardwood flooring, but also by a huge picture window. This bay-styled window allows for a wealth of natural lighting and for on-going views of the day.
Each bedroom is bright, of good size, and features a closet; and as mentioned, new laminate flooring.
The basement is open and neatly accommodates all utility equipment and services. The house is serviced by a 200 ampere electrical, breaker panel. A drilled well, features safe, extended above-ground access and is served by a newer water pump and pressure system. A real bonus of this village-living is that the property is served by the municipalitys sewer system.
Currently the homeowner is having all the original insulation removed from the attic in order to present a total upgrade of blown-in fibreglass insulation up to todays R50 value code standard, complete with updating of the attics ventilation system.
Another special note is that of the attached carport. This huge addition, 34 x 32, sports an aluminum clad ceiling, a sheltered aluminum wall and aluminum clad support pillars, plus an asphalt floor. Certainly easy to maintain and quite practical for a variety of purposes.
Two significant factors which contribute enormously to the overall appeal of this offering are the beauty of the site, and of its location. This impressive residential lot measures 100 feet of frontage and approximately 194 feet in depth. The property fronts on the west side of a paved county road, this street, Bennett St., being at the north end of the villages limits. The lot is well landscaped and features a few mature shade trees all affording privacy, and space for play, gardening and relaxation. An all-asphalt drive complements the expansive carport, and together would accommodate 10+ off-street vehicle parking spaces.
A municipal sidewalk fronts the lot line, thereby providing accessible walking opportunity to local services such as bank, post office, municipal office, convenience stores, fitness and arts centres, and restaurants. Churches, an ice arena, recreational and fair ground facilities, an elementary school and a refurbished historic river mill all form part of this active community.
It is apparent that a true locational bonus exists, as there is an interchange as part of Highway 416 at Spencerville, thus providing quick access to and from this major transportation artery. Highway 401 is just minutes to the south of Spencerville, as is the International Bridge to USA, and naturally the beautiful St. Lawrence River, with all the amenities that it has to offer. Larger centres such as Kemptville, Brockville and Ottawa are within comfortable driving distances.
When one considers the quality and value of this particular house, its appealing site upon which it is situated, the presence of local community services and conveniences, and the centralized, ideal location all considered in total, this offering certainly epitomizes what I term as being an exceptional opportunity to live and appreciate the Lifestyle of the St. Lawrence River Valley.
Celebrate your success!
