It is a real treat for Rosemary Lunau and I to have the opportunity to market and find a new family to live in what we think is the "hidden gem of Windsor." We have been in a lot of homes and 1670 Grand Marais West, located in South Windsor has a time-honoured past. Step back to the grandeur of the 20's.
It is a centre hall plan which to me always feels welcoming.
There are unique features like solid wood and gumwood trim work and french doors with leaded glass. Extraordinary wood beams in the formal living room and dining room, a sturdy "Stickely Type" stair case. You will find a less formal sunroom off the living room and a main floor family room. The kitchen has recently been refinished with custom cabinetry to reflect the era of the home.
This vintage home has four generous bedrooms with sizeable cedar walk-in closets, almost unheard of for the age of this home! It also has a walk-up stair case to the attic. Our research shows it as approximately 3220 square feet on the first and second floors, not including the attic and there is another 1591 square feet in the lower level. The current homeowners finished an office space and recreation room or "flex" room to use for whatever and there is a workshop down there as well.
I would like to highlight the laundry chute from the second floor down to the lower level laundry! Why don't we build more of these today? They are so handy!
This distinguished home is situated on a 146' frontage which expands over four lots. It is heavily treed for privacy. There is an in-ground heated kidney shaped pool, children's play house, one and a half car garage and a circular driveway and a side drive. It truly has a majestic architectural past; however, its qualities and the improvements made seem to harmonize with todays modern home expectations with out compromising its elegance.
This home was featured in a video documentary called "Building the Bridge".
