Exceptional Century Home Presenting a Great Opportunity

Bring your dreams to life with this stunning, impeccably-maintained, century home exuding charm, character, and an abundance of history. Built in 1889 for the Cavana family, this property was known as one of the most beautiful residences in western Orillia. The design was created by Mr. J.H. Tool who was familiar with the architectural trends of the time, starting with a standard home and adding remarkable details. The design included the veranda, emphasizing the entrance, the elegant lattice details on the front of the gables, and a combination of red brick accented with buff and black, which were all trend-setting techniques at the time. Stepping inside this exceptional 2½ storey, you are sure to fall in love with the stunning, modern features paired with a selection of original finishes including the 18” baseboards, 8” crown moulding, and decorative doors. The main level presents spacious principal rooms, a fireplace, and a kitchenette. The amenities of this level are rounded out with a galley-style kitchen and 1½ bathrooms.


Retreat up the staircase to the spacious second floor providing versatile rooms to be utilized to suit your family’s needs. One of the rooms showcase a granite corner countertop with a sink, a glass-walled shower, large windows, and an electric fireplace. Just steps away, a door set at the top of the staircase leads to a separate area of this level adorned with modern finishes, built-in storage, easy-care laminate flooring, and more. Follow the additional staircase to the third level presenting 2 bedrooms, beautiful views overlooking the surrounding neighbourhood, and a 4 piece bathroom. This space is perfect for guests or could be used as a large office – the choice is yours. Downstairs, the partially-finished basement has been beautifully completed with a cultured stone wall adding the same elegance and charm exuding throughout the home. Set on a corner lot, you will appreciate the convenience of this location, placing you only moments from Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital, Orillia’s downtown core, major amenities, and quick access to commuter routes. A large parking lot offers accommodations for up to 12 vehicles, perfect for guests and employees. You won’t want to miss out on this remarkable opportunity.
