This beautiful, private property is a charming oasis…a unique and secluded niche in the spectacular urban enclave of Hogg’s Hollow. Nestled in the ravine, surrounded by trees and a lush English garden, it is a sanctuary without compare. As you wander along the stone path through the courtyard to the front door, the charm and originality of this property will capture your heart and you will find yourself drawn into a beautiful home that is a masterful blend of the original with the new. Once settled in you will find yourself at peace, relaxing in this charming home, away from it all and quickly forgetting you are superbly located in the heart of the city.
