Beautiful 1828 heritage home for sale in Fallowfield


I’ve been researching old stone houses in the Nepean/Kanata/Stittsville area and was interested to see that this 1828 stone home known as “Charles Smith House” is for sale. It is a beauty, and could be yours for about $800,000. (Here’s the real estate listing.)

(All photos on this page are from the MLS listing.)

It’s on Steeple Hill Crescent, close to a couple of mid-19th century churches.  The house was built in 1828 by Charles Smith and it’s a designated heritage building.  Steeple Hill runs between Old Richmond Road and Fallowfield Road, near the boundary of Nepean and Kanata.

Here’s the real estate agent’s description:

“Rare and Remarkable! The ‘Smith House’ stands proudly on an exquisite lot, surrounded by ancient trees, stonehedge, wrought iron fence and a facade that is breathtaking. Beyond the magnificent entrance, this updated and well cared for heritage designated home, built in 1828 offers all of the conveniences of modern day living while respectfully ensuring the rich history of the era is preserved. Will not last. Do not delay – Call Today!”

There’s a reference to this house in Carleton Saga, a 1968 reference book about the history of our region:

On “Piety Hill”, Fallowfield … [built in] 1828.  This is a lovely house with an attractive blending of Nepean sandstone and limestone.  It was built in colonial style by an United Empire Loyalist wheelwright from New England.  He was James Smith.  It is now owned and used as a summer residence by a direct descendant, Dr. S. L. Everett Danby.

    So happy I came across this. That was built by my great x 3 grandfather James Smith. It is known at the Charles Smith home probably because his son did take over the farm and his name is on the property in the 1879 Beldens Atlas.
    I’ve never been inside. Nice to see some interior photos.
