An Abandoned Time Capsule House Restoration – 5064 Wellington Road 32 Guelph, Ontario
Renovation Before and After Photos from an Abandoned Time Capsule House Restoration at 5064 Wellington Road 32 Guelph, Ontario.
Back in 2015 a house at 5064 Wellington Road 32 Guelph, Ontario had been on the minds of many local explorers, this house was odd in that it always looked abandoned but there was always a light on in the porch.
Finally, one day in May of 2015 some explorers took one for the team and made an approach and discovered that this house was in-fact now abandoned and it was an Abandoned Time Capsule House, and it was full of goodies. I don’t remember right now who is was to finally get in an explore this house but word spread quickly and the most eager of Ontario explorers (myself included) made to drive to Guelph to explore this newly discovered abandoned time capsule house.
I explored this home on May 23rd, 2015 with Phrenzee and his wife MsDekay, it was an easy explore…park up the road, make your way in and lock the door behind you. Every single room was full of unique items, in the living room an upright piano, antique desks, china and knick knacks. Upstairs, rooms full of family photos, old magazines, old newspapers and an seemingly huge interest in the Kennedy Family.
The kitchen was in a very bad way and I can’t believe that someone was living in these conditions. Lastly, there was a bedroom on the main floor that smelled terribly of urine, someone advised that they were told the woman died in the bed in that room…but I haven’t been able to ever confirm that fact.
As things go, eventually and rather quickly things started disappearing from the abandoned house, whether by thieves or by family of the woman who died in this house. Then within a few months the home was taken over and it appeared that renovations would be taking place, a blue tarp was placed over the roof to prevent further water damage and the house was taken off of the exploring market….which is a good thing!!
Fast forward now over three years later and I have just learned from another fellow explorer that the home has been fully restored and placed on the real estate market for $1.3 Million Dollars.
I quickly located the real estate listing my my jaw hit the floor when I saw the extent of the renovations and restoration of the home., the listing reads:
Luxurious estate farm house nestled on just under 3 acres. This home has been renovated top to bottom with no expense spared. Old charm blended with high end finishes, featuring 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, large covered porch, all new appliances with an oversized double garage with a loft above for storage, office or rental suite possibilities. Renovations and upgrades within the house include: All new windows and sills in original structure (Centennial Windows with transferrable lifetime warranty), custom kitchen with quartz and granite countertops, ensuite (with heated floors) and main bath cabinets, new septic system and drilled well, new walls, steps, and door for original basement walkout, house was gutted to stone walls and added spray foam insulation, 200 amp service all new electrical and plumbing, the list goes on and on! This home must be viewed in person to really captivate all the work that has been done to transform this farm house into the rare beauty that it is
I quickly got to work and scoured all of my photos to see if i could match shot for shot the new updated “after” photos so I could do a now and then comparison. I’ve done my best to match room for room and shot for shot….
