4748 Salem Road Westport
Welcome to 4748 Salem Road! This stunning century stone home, built in 1834 by local blacksmith Samuel Ripley, is a rare gem and one of the earliest third-stage pioneer homes built of stone in the area. The property has been completely updated, while still retaining many of its original features. As you step inside, you will immediately notice the wide plank pine floors in the formal living and dining room, as well as the second-floor bedrooms, deep windowsills, beamed ceilings, and the unique stone arch, which were once the double doors to the original carriage shed.
The home has seamlessly blended old and new, evident in the beautiful custom kitchen and the huge family room featuring a cozy pellet stove to ward off the chilly winter evenings. The 4-piece bathroom on the second floor is shared by the 3 bedrooms, with the primary bedroom boasting built-in cabinetry under the eaves. State-of-the-art systems, including a Generac propane generator, peat septic system, home theatre and central air conditioning with internet provided by WTC, ensure modern convenience and comfort.
This little piece of paradise is located outside of the beautiful village of Westport and just 30 minutes from Perth, 1 hour from Kingston, and about 1.5 hours to Ottawa.
The lot size of 108’ x 376’ is partially fenced and beautifully landscaped with a private patio, a creek and surrounded by farmland. The double oversized detached garage is perfect for car enthusiasts or as a workshop and the asphalt driveway, with 2 spots by the road widens towards the house with additional parking for 6 cars.
This property is a must-see for those who appreciate history, quality craftsmanship, and modern conveniences. Don't miss this opportunity to own a piece of history and enjoy the peaceful lifestyle that this property has to offer.
