Quick, can anyone lend us $550K?
If you need to ask why, it’s probably because you haven’t yet seen this most charming, black and white home, which bears a striking resemblance to the house that Noah built for Allie in *swoon* The Notebook. The spectacular, 5-bedroom, waterfront property from the 2004 movie became the symbol of Noah and Allie’s passionate, enduring love story, and has been considered the dream home by the movie’s legions of fans.
How do we know we’re talking about thousands of adoring fans? Ever since this elegant, two-storey mansion hit the market, over 16,000 people have checked it out, going crazy about the similarity with the original, South Carolina property featured in the movie.
Located in Winnipeg, CA, the gorgeous, Colonial-style home on Art Miki Way is the Canadian version of the lovely, Martin’s Point Plantation property and it recently came on the market with an asking price of $549,900 CAD, which is significantly lower than the price tag of the South Carolina original (in today’s market, it is valued at almost $780,000 CAD).
Whether you see your dream home or a stunning Bed and Breakfast when you look at this beautiful single-family home, the truth is this classically elegant house is a real gem. From the sprawling, 2,320 square feet of living space, three bedrooms and an upper-level loft, to the wood fireplace stealing the spotlight in the spacious living room and the dreamy porch, this house has it all.
The main level features a spacious living room, complete with a wood fireplace, a formal dining room, one kitchen and a two-piece bath, while the upper level includes a large master bedroom with a five-piece ensuite bathroom and walk-in closet. To top it all off, the third floor hosts a heated, unfurnished loft.
Additional amenities include a fully finished basement with an amazing recreation area, a double attached garage, central air conditioning, high-efficiency furnace and washer/dryer.
This incredible, palatial and yet inviting home has a lot of charm. And as far as eye candy real estate goes, we can’t complain. We came for the dreamy porch and the facade that reminded us of Noah’s love for Allie, but the light-filled rooms and the graceful finishes really won us over.
