The last person who lived here is Grace Cawthra-Elliot. She was the descendant of one of the most wealthiest families in Ontario in 19th century.
Grace built her dream home to reflect her Loyalist roots and Georgian architecture tradition surrounded by former gardens and a woodlot.
This two story brick, traditional English countryside estate is showing us how Grace was proud of her family's eighteenth century origins of Yorkshire, England.
She referred to her estate as “Cawthra-Lotten”, because Joseph Cawthra (her great-grandfather) received Lot 10. In 1808AD the 200 Acre land was given as a crown grant, which the house stands on. Grace lived at the Cawthra-Elliot Estate from 1926 until her death in1974.
My favorite spot is the south side of the woodlot, where the the remainder of the wall garden is in Georgian style. The red bricks are still standing among the green rays and make you think how glorious it would had been in centuries ago.
Cawthra Estate was being used for local music school and private events before Covid-19, March 2020. There are not that many visitors at this hidden gem, you can enjoy quiet walks with animals.
Lakeview Denture Clinic
Every Sunday, from May till October, there is a great way to enjoy the fresh produces from our local growers!
You can come to the Lakeview farmers market at the parking lot of 1352 Lakeshore East.
At Lakeview farmers' market, you will meet your local producers and support them by enjoying their proud products, what a great way to spend your Sunday morning.
The market hours is 10am till 2pm, there are line up to get in, so get there bit early then you won't miss out on the popular products.
In my case, I enjoy the walking part as well as shopping summer produce.
Going down to the Lakeshore on Sunday mornings with my market basket is making me excited, every week you will see new producers in addition to your regular fammers.
A part of the proceeds go directly to support CreativeHub1352 arts, heritage and
environmental public programs
There are so many different vendors and the list keeps growing.
One of my favorite vendors, Kinsip House of Fine Spirits is a farm-based, grain-to-glass distillery.
Their Juniper's Wit Gin is one of my must have!
Lakeview farmers' market supports environmental public programs, bring your own basket and if you can walk there, that will be even better if you live in the Lakeview area.
My last tip is, be there early especially if you would like to get free range hen eggs from the Lady cone Hop Yard, they are committed to produce high-quality locally grown products with a regenerative organic approach.
But, not too worry!, if you miss this week there is next week until the end of the October.
