Alan de la Vigne's restored 1830's Federal style home in Port Hope, Ontario was featured in Canadian House and Home's February 2010 issue. Now you can also watch a 5 minute video tour of his gorgeous home. After you recover from the fact that this daper gentleman is 81 years old and looks hardly over 60, you'll be treated to:
`
- an all white painted open staircase filled with light
- antiques in every room, including a 1712 French armoire and 17c Italian table
- beautiful moldings and
- a southern-style draped porch with exterior curtains made from a very thrifty material

To see the house tour, go to House & Home Online TV HERE.
