The “Bower” is a 2 storey heritage home. Built in 1790 with an expansion of the 2nd floor and substantial remodelling in the 1860s, its many distinctive elements are preserved. Stone gate posts mark entry to the large private and well treed grounds. The home has many distinctive architectural features, including a portico entry, mansard roof, “eye-brow” dormer windows, three chimneys and century chimney pots. The heart of the main floor is the large central hall which accesses a double living room graced with architectural columns, 2 fireplaces and large Georgian & Victorian-styled windows on 3 sides, a grand formal dining room with key arches over a door and wall cupboard and two corner china cupboards, a library which connects a study, family room and south-facing solarium. The 2nd floor has a large central hallway with a large main bedroom and en suite bathroom, 4 more bedrooms, 2 more bathrooms, linen storage and walk-in attic storage. Each room has windows on at least 2 sides. There are 9 fireplaces (not used) and a wood stove in the kitchen. The basement has a separate entrance, a 2nd kitchen and a solid newer concrete floor.
