HIDDEN TREASURE, A PRIVATE ISLAND in the CITY of CAMBRIDGE! The home was built in 1938 by a couple who were merchants in the Kitchener Waterloo region. Over time, this property has been restored and modernised. The current owners are the 4th family to own this property. The island is created by the Speed River splitting and reconnecting. In the early 20th century, the island used to be a city park. It can now be your own private park. The property is a private 7.6 acre island, accessed by a private bridge which is approximately 10 feet wide and 106 feet long. In 1966 this bridge was completely redesigned & rebuilt by the owner (professor of engineering). In the last 2 years the current owners have reinforced the structure & replaced the railings. This exceptionally well-maintained home of 2,548 sqft has serene views of nature such as century-old oak trees and wildlife including herons, turtles and deer from every single window. The home includes 3+1 bedrooms, 3.5 bath, 2 car garage and a carport. It is grand; full of character, charming, and cozy - all in one! Each bedroom includes a private washroom. The family room is spacious with a wood burning fireplace and walkout to patio overlooking park. Grand dining room has all around nature views, perfect for entertaining. Open concept kitchen with built in sitting area adjacent to living room which boasts another patio walkout. The immense office has wall to wall windows and built-in wood cabinetry. The attic can be used as 4th bedroom or a games room nestled over greenbelt conservation views. This home also offers plenty of built-in storage including basement. This island is approximately 40% forested with trails and 60% landscaped. Park surround is everywhere - offers privacy and unmatched enjoyment of nature. Located 5 minutes away from Highway 401. Only 45 minute drive to Pearson International Airport and 1 hour to GTA. This is a rare opportunity to become an owner of the Speed Island Estate. (id:54601)
