In 1921 young Whitney Martin graduated from business school and moved from Toronto to Baptiste Lake to work for his brother-in-law at a saw mill operation. By 1947, Whitney was the sole owner of what was quickly becoming the leading producer of Canada's hardwood lumber industry. In 1958, Mr. Martin engaged the most skilled and trusted tradespeople to construct a corporate office in the heart of Bancroft, the building would also serve as his family residence. Contractors were carefully selected for their shared values and passion for superior craftsmanship- and they were provided with materials of only the highest grade. The result was structural excellence, both stylish and welcoming. In the 1980's, the property changed hands and became a boarding house. It was sold again in 1996 to the Riddle family who undertook extensive and meticulous restorations. Major updates in 2013 and 2015, along with a diligent and consistent maintenance protocol, have kept this home to the strictest of standards. Ideally located at the edge of town, the generous grounds and exquisite landscaping provide a peaceful setting with ultimate privacy. This home was previously operated as light care retirement residence and then a lucrative, award-winning Bed & Breakfast which drew visitors from around the globe. Most recently 59 Monck Street has been enjoyed as a private residence- and while former guests would delight in seeing the B & B re-open, there are many possibilities here for the modern investor. Intercom on all floors, alarmed exit doors, emergency lighting and lighted exit signs. There are hardwired smoke alarms with pull stations, fire extinguishers and auxiliary battery op smoke detectors in the bedrooms which have solid core doors with automatic closers. All copper wiring water lines (oversized to handle future expansion), PVC sewage/discharge lines. State of the art heating plant with sprinkler system. Vintage radiators (fully retrofitted) & more. Taxes approximate. (id:40227)
