None In Floor Heating, Other, Radiant Heat Landscaped


In 1947, Bancroft's Whitney Martin was the head of what was quickly becoming the leading producer of Canada's hardwood lumber industry. He engaged the most skilled and trusted tradespeople to construct a corporate office in the heart of Bancroft, the building would also serve as his family residence. Contractors were carefully selected for their shared values and passion for superior craftmanship- and they were provided with materials of only the highest grade. The result was structural excellence, both stylish and welcoming. Meticulous restorations, frequent upgrades and a diligent, consistent maintenance protocol have kept this property to the strictest of standards. Ideally located at the edge of town, the grounds are generous and the landscaping compliments to provide a peaceful setting with ultimate privacy. This home has been previously operated as a light-care retirement residence and then a lucrative, award-winning Bed & Breakfast, popular with visitors from around the globe. Most recently 59 Monck has been enjoyed as a private residence with 8 bedrooms, three 3 piece baths and a powder room. Former guests would be pleased to see the B & B reopen but there are many possibilities here for the modern investor. Lounge areas, intercoms on all floors, alarmed exit doors, emergency lighting and lighted exit signs. Hardwired smoke alarms with pull stations, fire extinguishers and auxiliary battery operated smoke detectors in the bedrooms which have solid core doors with automatic closers. All copper wiring and water lines (oversized to handle future expansion), PVC sewage/discharge lines. State of the art Viessmann boiler plant provides heating and hot water, with sprinkler system and vintage radiators (fully retrofitted). Stone, wood burning fireplace in the rec-room. Garage door opener in detached double garage. Home has 400 amp service, garden house has 100 and garage 60 amps. Price includes most furnishings, housewares & appliances. Taxes are approx.
