Guelph is home to perhaps five legitimate mansions. Idylwyld located at 27 Barber Avenue is one of them. In 1878, Scottish craftsmen were called upon to erect from local limestone an imposing three storey nearly 8500 sqft Second Empire French Mansardic style residence on a 13 acre special piece of land close by the old fairgrounds, now Exhibition Park. It took them two years to complete every scrupulous detail, intended as it was to showcase the importance of the Williamson family for whom it was built. As we would say today, Mission Accomplished. The skilled workmanship has withstood the test of time, the exterior limestone masonry, ornate decorative wood cornices and unique tower with slate roof and cast iron cresting. Inside, the solid walnut millwork, elaborate decorative plaster ceilings (13 feet high on the main and 2nd levels, and 11 feet even on the 3rd), the grandly curved 3 storey walnut staircase to the 8 bedrooms up, even seemingly minor detail like the exquisite brass door and window hardware, each one a work of art. Admittedly, you may want to add some modern touches of your own now, remembering that this home is a treasure not to be enhanced without careful consideration. Yes, Idylwyld on its maturely treed 3/4+ acre lot, has been a Guelph treasure for 140 years and can now be treasured by your family too, for far far less than its cost of replacement, not that you ever could.
