The Woolcott Team has officially moved into Waterdown’s historic Pearson House.
After months of painstaking renovations to preserve the heritage and history of the building, the team has finally moved in to their new office space.
“We are thrilled to be in a new location that offers great access for our clients, space to grow in the area and the opportunity to foster a sense of community within the walls,” says Drew Woolcott, broker of record with The Woolcott Team.
The Woolcott Team, run by Drew and Jayne Woolcott, is Waterdown’s top-selling real estate team.
Woolcott says a big attraction to the Pearson House, located at 493 Dundas St. E., was the historic designation and the history that comes with it.
Pearson House was the original home of Avonsyde Dairy, a dairy that was started by George Pearson in 1918 and delivered milk in glass bottles to the Village of Waterdown before expanding to Aldershot and, later, Burlington.
Woolcott will be giving a nod to his building’s historic past as he will be making spaces available within the building for community groups to use for meetings and social functions.
Community space was a big part of the renovation of the historic building, which saw the building’s footprint grow to just shy of 8,000 square feet. This increase was accomplished by adding two-storey additions on the rear of the home.
Throughout the project, Woolcott maintained the need for preserving historic elements of the building. Woolcott was able to incorporate the exposed brick throughout, refinish the original hardwood floors and weave in original buildings for a stunning aesthetic.
The Woolcott Team will be holding a grand opening when the building is complete, but Woolcott welcomes the public to drop by for a sneak peek during opening hours.
“We want the community to come through the doors and experience the Pearson House in its modern iteration,” says Woolcott.
The Woolcott Team’s office is open Monday to Thursday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
