     Welcome to Kingsholme, the historic estate built in 1858 by Colonel James King, one of the early settlers after whom the town of Kingsville is named. A 900 foot fieldstone wall surrounds this landmark property.  Nestled among mature trees in a very private 2.75 acre park-like setting, only blocks from the town’s shops, library, restaurants, schools, and a 15 minute stroll to Lake Erie.  Lovingly restored, the home features 7 bedrooms, 6.5 baths (4 en-suite), 2 kitchens, formal great room, library, spacious dining room, 3 fireplaces and new high efficiency furnace.  Architecturally unique, the original octagon with wrap-around covered veranda and 3rd storey ‘widow’s walk’ has had 2 wings added, bringing the total livable area of the main house to 5093 sq. ft.  A spacious brick patio under stately maples and 20 ft x 40 ft swimming pool with pergola provide a spectacular outdoor entertainment setting.  A 2 storey carriage house, featuring 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, kitchen, family room, laundry room and 2 car garage with a new concrete driveway is included on the property.  Explore the opportunities and enjoy the gracious lifestyle of a forgotten era. Zoned R1-28 the property has multiple uses ranging from private home, with extra accommodation for extended family and guests, to its current use as a combined home and bed and breakfast, or possible development into a country inn.
