Perched atop the escarpment, minutes from the ski hills, and combining ultimate privacy with long views over the Beaver Valley, this 52-acre hobby farm boasts more than 5000 square feet of thoughtfully laid out living space exuding warmth, taste, craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail.

 

 
The main floor features a large open plan kitchen/dining/living room lit by large windows on all four sides, plus a generous mudroom with heated floor, a full bathroom, and separate library/sitting room.

 

 

 

 

 

The second floor features five bedrooms, including an expansive master with views of the sunrise, a walk-in closet, and a full en-suite bathroom with a claw-foot tub.

 

 

 

 

The fully-finished, cathedral-style attic features Gothic windows, and provides plenty of space for a full home office, while the basement features two guest bedrooms, full bathroom, large recreation room and separate music or AV room with 5.1 hookup.

 

 

 

 

Three porches surrounded by lush perennial borders allow you to watch the sun come up over the valley and go down over the forest and wetlands. More than an acre of gently rolling lawn for kids to play on leads down to the equestrian area: a horse paddock with run-in shelter, a riding ring, and a generous pasture field with solar electric fencing, plus a tack shed, hay storage and year-round water. A spacious steel building provides space for a workshop, and storage for bikes, skis, boats and recreational vehicles, and there is also a garden shed. The property also features a network of trails, ideal for mountain biking, running, hiking or cross-country ski-ing, connecting to the Bruce Trail which runs around two sides, along with a year-round creek, beaver dams, wetland areas which attract herons and egrets, and several acres of mature hardwood forest including sugar maple suitable for making your own syrup.

 

 

 

It’s the perfect place to bring up a growing family, entertain guests, indulge your favourite outdoor pursuits, or simply relax and enjoy the serenity of nature.
