The home at 21 Charles Street was completely restored.

The home was originally built in 1913 by a family who farmed the surrounding orchards. The home is a mixture of modern and tradition, restored with the same designer and builder as a Toronto home at 83 Willcocks Street, said realtor Jenna Pattison.

There is a space for a tiny office.

The home stayed in the same family for several generations, and then was acquired and completely gutted in 2020, said Pattison. The four-storey (including the basement) home has more than 4,000 square feet of living space that has been renovated with a big addition and garage added.

The kitchen is open concept with all new appliances.

The main floor has a modern, open concept kitchen.

The living room is renovated with a gas fireplace.

The living room comes with a gas fireplace. The entire home combines modern glass and metal juxtaposed with original stone and brick, said Pattison.

The master bedroom has a walk out deck.

There are four bedrooms and five bathrooms. Three of the bathrooms are full and two are powder rooms.

The bathroom comes with a soaker tub.

Keeping some of the old features, the designers created a staircase with exposed brick.

The staircase highlights some of the older features of the home with exposed brick.

The wine cellar has a similar feel with the exposed stone foundation.

The wine cellar looks small but there is a nod to the past with this old stone foundation.

For car aficionados, there are two separate driveways, a garage and carport.

There are two driveways on either side of the home.

Outside, there is a covered porch with space for entertaining outside.

The covered porch would be nice for entertaining.

The yard has enough space for gardens or perhaps an outdoor rink someday.

There is a massive backyard.

This backyard is also where you will find the original barn built around the same time as the house.
