Heritage home, Newtonville

4502 Highway 2
Clarington  Ontario

History:     This two-story authentic beauty was originally built as an Inn in 1858 by Samuel Jones. Located at the east end of Durham Region in the Hamlet of Newtonville, it’s a prominent landmark located at the junction of Highway #2 and Newtonville Road– steps from Highway 401. Through-out its 153-year history the building has most always been a home with a family-run business on the main level, including the Jones’ General Store and Photography studio. Most prominently it was the Port Hope Telephone Company, a private telephone company which was started and run by the Jones family from 1896 until the 1960s.

Details:
As it has played a significant part of the community much of its history is documented including the fact that the wall construction is three-layers of brick. Several local historical books indicate it required 37,000 bricks at a cost of .4 each.
This large home features majestic 9.5 foot ceilings on the main floor living room and dining rooms and refinished original hardwood floors. Upstairs there are five spacious bedrooms each with two or three ceiling-to-floor windows. Present zoning by Clarington Municipality allows for a local-home business such as gift/art shop, antique store, appliance repair business, hair dresser, etc. and the large barn adds to the many potentials. Making this a fine investment property is the planned expansion of the nearby Ontario Power Generation Darlington. Move-in ready, the home has been modernized while retaining its historic character and is close enough to commute to Toronto.
