Full Description:

Own a part of history! This is a totally unique opportunity to own one of the region’s original settlement homes sitting on just under 4 acres within the urban boundary of Fort Erie and set back from the famous Niagara River Parkway.

In a commanding position with views of the river and towards Buffalo, this home has been in the hands of the same owners for the past 40 years. Although it is perfectly livable as is, it would now benefit from a new owner who has the enthusiasm to restore the home to it’s former glory. Also, possible development potential on some of the land around the house. Main floor consists of living room with marble fireplace, formal dining room, sitting room, bathroom, kitchen and breakfast room. The grand foyer has a wonderful staircase leading to a total of 5 bedrooms and a bathroom on the second floor. Many original features in this amazing home, believed to date back to 1810. The land was first deeded to a William Powell in 1796. The huge elevated porch that surrounds three sides of the home would benefit from renovation and would be fantastic once restored.

Home being sold ‘as is’. Potential to develop the surrounding land subject to approvals. Buyer to carry out their own due diligence.
