Take a step back in time… to an era of elegant and gracious living in an early 20th century estate home surrounded by 68 acres of beautifully maintained park land.
Main Floor & Foyer
From the minute you enter the beautifully appointed foyer, you step into an atmosphere that is full of history and the charm of days gone by. The main floor consists of three rooms, the Great Hall, Dining Room and Library. The entire main floor can accommodate 120 guests at a cocktail-style function and is air-conditioned.
This magnificent room overlooking the spacious grounds is ready for any event you are planning. It provides a most romantic setting for a wedding ceremony and reception, but also suits business meetings and seminars, private dinners, music recitals, workshops, retirement parties, craft shows, fundraising events, and social events. The, wood beamed ceiling, period light fixtures, original stone fireplace and stunning leaded glass window make this a gracious setting for numerous types of events and accommodates 80 guests for a sit-down dinner.
This welcoming space is often set up as a serving area for beverages or a buffet. This room contains the original dining room furnishings and a beautiful view of the estate’s grounds.
A cozy fireplace, warm wood beams, Oriental carpets and handsome furnishings create the perfect setting for family portraits, for quiet conversation, for listening to music, or an evening of celebration like no other. Relax by the fireplace, play the piano, or just sit back and enjoy the soothing atmosphere the library offers.
Available for wedding rentals only there are two special areas that are yours for the day. The bride’s suite consists of a bedroom with original furniture from Elsie’s day, with a dressing room and its own bathroom. For the groom there is a completely separate dressing room and bathroom which has its own staircase to the main floor so the groom can dress and descend to the ground floor without encountering his bride before their ceremony.
This floor contains washrooms and a coat rack for guests. It also provides access for outdoor events.
The estate is located on 68 acres of park land which is open year round to the public, complete with a walking trail. Expansive areas of green-space invite outdoor gatherings and this beautiful setting is often used for wedding pictures, camera clubs and fashion shoots.
