PARADISE FOUND

4 Websters Falls Road, Greensville, ON




This circa 1920s Arts and Crafts Style home has exchanged several notable #HamOnt family hands from Frid to Peller and, to most recently, Alexanian. Now’s your chance to make history with the first opportunity in nearly 50 years to own this magnificent estate.











She may 100+ years younger than her senior limestone lovely at #6 (which I swooned over last year), but #droolworthy in her own right!


6 Websters Falls Road, next door.

4 Websters Falls Road is truly paradise found. Located on a dead end, private, gated street, boasting a lush 1.5 acre forested, fairy tale lot. All this surrounded by Niagara Escarpment land and steps to the coveted and highly ‘grammed’ Websters Falls conservation area. 



Located a mere 100 metres from Websters Falls and the surrounding park, yet close to Downtown Dundas and Hamilton with easy highway access!





The inside of the home will likely take you back a bit – good and bad. She’s dated but has the bones worth day-dreaming over. 



You will salivate over the most incredible and intricate, original lead-glass windows and die for the substantial wood paneling, beams and trim throughout, including the jaw-dropping and awe-inspiring built-ins and cabinetry in the basement, rumoured to have been salvaged from an old ship.









In addition, the upstairs bathroom features original art deco fixtures and features, rarely preserved in the homes found on the market today.





I envision an eclectic cottage brought back to life and into the light with paint, colour, bold patterns, layers of texture and whimsical antique furnishings and accessories that enhance the history of this home. Chinoiserie, claw feet, gold, gilt, ormolu, crystal, carved wood, marble and more.
