This two-storey gabled house located on the southwest corner of Jones and Peel Street, with a spectacular view over the town, has a long history. When the house was built in 1880, it was a two-storey house with a hip roof and the gables were a later addition. The main entrance has an impressive veranda. Around 1902 an addition was built to the west which allowed the joint owners at the time to have independent households. The addition has been renovated in 2018 and is now an Airbnb/guesthouse.
The front of the home has a private area in which we live with our own personal entrance. The remainder of the home is accessible to guests with living room, a dining room, entryway and kitchen. There are ceiling fans and large windows in the upstairs bedrooms. There are 3 bedrooms and a total living area of about 1200 sq. ft. A big back deck with picnic table overlooking the large back yard equipped with gas fire pit. The yard is fully fenced in for children's safety. Coffee and tea are available for your use in the kitchen and clean towels and basic amenities are provided.
