The King House
193 John Street, Aylmer, ON
Built in the late 1800’s by the King Family, this Edwardian home has a steely sloped roof, three decorative dormers with stained glass windows, scalloped windows and a wonderful large verandah, just to mention a very few of the many extraordinary features. The exterior is white brick with fretwork gables and vernacular pillars.
The interior is spectacular featuring a cherry staircase in the entry, rooms with chestnut trim, wood grained pocket doors, paneling under the windows and superb 1/4 cut oak hardwood floors. Meticulously restored including additions that reflect the original character of the home. The King House is a Heritage Home with no designated renovation restrictions.
The King House today is a wonderful private residence with an opportunity to be a unique B&B Inn. All of the many rooms are very spacious. The home has a formal living room, family room, dining room, gourmet kitchen, large inviting foyer, library, and reading lounge. The master bedroom is extensive, with a window bench nook and an exquisite ensuite. An addition of the double garage makes this Edwardian gem up-to-date and functional.
