More than 140 years ago a stunning Second Empire Italianate home was built overlooking Ossekeag Creek, surrounded by rolling hills and lush pastures in the picturesque town of Hampton. Great attention to detail and quality workmanship created an impressive estate home that boasts an elegant foyer, grand staircase with hand-carved newel posts, luxurious dining room, and a beautiful double parlour with two fireplaces and a walk-out bay window overlooking the creek and scenic mountains beyond.

The second floor of this magnificent circa 1871 home provides large bedrooms for family and visitors alike.

The ceilings are towering … the rooms spacious … the doors solid wood … and the mouldings simply impressive!

They still are the same today, lovingly kept, restored and preserved for future generations to enjoy.

Today a paved driveway leads to the beautifully maintained country estate that has been updated with modern conveniences yet retains its original splendour.

Set on 8.27 scenic acres along Centennial Road, this Victorian inviting heritage home with beautiful covered wrap around verandahs stands out against a backdrop of blue sky, huge mature trees, hills and valleys. It is a sight to behold inside and out.

A gathering spot in any Maritime household, the massive kitchen of 142 Centennial Road has been renovated in keeping with the home’s era, yet planned to accommodate modern living. Large windows fill the sitting area with sunshine. An elegant electric fireplace adds warmth and atmosphere. There’s a bar for mixing a cool afternoon drink to be enjoyed on the adjoining deck on warm sunny days. The eat-in kitchen offers loads of rich custom cabinetry with many built-ins, several windows and hardwood flooring.

Host large dinner parties in the kitchen or move down the hallway to the stunning formal dining room. This impressive room features an ornate original fireplace, hardwood flooring, massive windows, wainscoting, and beautiful crown moulding. It’s easy to imagine the elegant parties this room once held and the memories that can be made here once again on special occasions set in high style!

A few steps down the foyer, also lined with hardwood floor and featuring wainscoting and paneled walls, find double parlours. These grand rooms are connected with solid wood sliding pocket doors. The hardwood floor with inlaid diamond pattern is beautiful. The crown moulding is gorgeous and the fireplaces, lovely. Both rooms are bright with large windows and the front parlour features a walk-out bay window with views of the rolling front lawn and Ossekeag Creek.

Another lovely room across the hallway currently serves as an office. The main floor also features a three-piece bathroom with acrylic tub and shower, a mudroom entrance and an additional side entrance off the covered verandah. The main entrance features impressive wood double doors to the vestibule, with a second set of double doors with stained glass windows into the foyer.

A grand staircase with hand-carved newel posts leads to the home’s second floor with five large bedrooms and two three-piece bathrooms. The master suite has a wall of windows offering up beautiful views of Ossekeag Creek, a neighbouring farmhouse, mountains and fields. The large room has hardwood flooring, a fireplace, a sitting area and an adjacent renovated bathroom with a claw foot tub. A second staircase off the master foyer leads to the first floor near the kitchen.

All additional bedrooms are very large with softwood flooring, big windows, closets, lovely crown mouldings, 9 fireplaces (three with propane inserts), deep baseboards and solid wood doors. Generous sized rooms, square footage of the home is 3800 square feet. A set of stairs from the second floor foyer leads to the third-floor widow’s watch and attic which has been recently re-insulated for efficiency.

The property includes a 130’ x 30’ barn with a full walkout basement. The barn was rebuilt in 1930 and this property is zoned for agriculture. Imagine looking out the many windows to the majestic sight of horses grazing on your own property!  Perfect size as well for vintage car collection, tractor, snow blower, gardening tools, canoe, etc.

This home has been updated with newer windows, insulation in the basement and attic as well as newer electrical and plumbing.

Right in the heart of Hampton, this inviting home offers country living close to quality schools, and the many businesses, services, shops, recreation facilities and all that the town of Hampton has to offer.
