735 Rathbourne Ave, Woodstock

Welcome to 735 Rathbourne Avenue. Prepare to be dazzled by both this property and its history. Constructed over the course of four years beginning in 1828 by one of Woodstock’s Founding Father’s, Captain Andrew Drew, this home was built from the Admiral’s disassembled ship after it got stuck in what we now call Pittock. The mast of the ship still stands proud at the front of the home bearing our Country’s flag, a country that wouldn’t exist for nearly forty years after the foundation of this home was laid. With only five owners in total, now is your less than once in a lifetime opportunity to be the new Steward of this property – Woodstock’s oldest residence that is still standing. Architecturally known as a “Regency Cottage”, the curb appeal and grandeur of this property are undeniable and the nearly acre of lush grounds themselves completely enchanting. Gas lanterns warmly invite you into the circular drive and a stunning wrap around porch beckons you to sit down, relax on a rocking chair, or would you prefer to lounge by the pool? Why don’t we step inside the formal front entry with original hand blown glass and just take it all in – the soaring 11 foot coffered ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, centre hall archway, original pine floors, fireplaces at every turn, the light flowing in the breakfast room as it dances off the mature trees outside, that TRIM! But don’t let the charm of this home fool you, while this may look like a bungalow that indeed could allow for fully main floor living with its traditionally English ground level master suite, this house also boasts a second storey with four additional bedrooms, a four piece bathroom and storage to spare – 3600+ square feet of finished living space plus 1000+ in storage, not even including the basement! A basement that was once connected to Old St Paul’s church via tunnels providing safe haven to countless families escaping slavery via the Underground Railroad. You simply must see this home for yourself.
