Almonte stone home for sale heritage property

161 Union St Almonte

The William Thoburn Estate c. 1888

This Home was Offered At $ 1,795,000.00

“Very Rare” seems so overused these days ….. but that is exactly what this home was. A Stone home commissioned and built by a very prominent citizen in 1887, and lovingly lived and cared for ever since.  This home was not a settlers home, built out of necessity with whatever materials were on hand. This home was sited on almost an acre of town land and designed by the award winning architect Marshal B. Aylsworth for W. M. Thoburn and his family.  William Thoburn was the local mill owner, very important to the village of Almonte.  So many original details still remain. The trims, doors and slate roof. The floor plan has evolved but in a very respectful way.
