185 Evert Street
Nestled within the picturesque surroundings of the Eramosa Gorge, this historic board and batten home from 1859, once a General Store, was meticulously renovated in 2000, with a frame-to-finish overhaul that included new wiring, plumbing, and insulation. Inside, reclaimed materials and hand-hewn beams by Historic Lumber create a timeless ambiance. Original pine floors grace the main level, where a ‘theatre’ kitchen, plus a separate prep kitchen, harmonizes with spaces designed for dining and entertainment. The living room features a gas fireplace, and a custom-built refectory table graces the dining room. Beyond, a theatre system adds a modern touch with a drop-down screen and projector.
A basement with an antique door from Caledon’s old jail opens to possibilities such as a wine cellar, studio, or additional bedroom. Ascend to the upper level and discover a primary bedroom with a built-in king-sized bed, gas fireplace, balcony, and skylight. The primary ensuite pampers with a separate shower, claw-foot tub, heated floors, and a sauna, while a convenient coffee bar awaits between the bathroom and bedroom. A private guest suite offers a full ensuite for convenience and privacy. Throughout the home, built-in cupboards and closets provide seamless organization. Most rooms have in-ceiling speakers for music. Adjacent to the house, a separate yoga studio provides a tranquil escape, complete with a wood-burning stove, adaptable for use as an office, games room, or artist’s studio.
