Set amid the rolling hills of Ravenna, tranquility & privacy are the hallmarks of this impressive Century Old Country Estate, reached by a gated, paved driveway that leads you to the fully renovated and expanded Century Farmhouse. This home is ideal for active families or hobby farmers, with plenty of space to work and play on this grandeur estate.

 

 

Upon entering the Foyer, your feet will thank you after stepping on the heated slate tile floors as the sounds of the crackling wood-burning fireplace beckon your arrival.  A convenient washer & dryer are discreetly placed at the back of the foyer along with a 2 pc Powder Room with designer wallpaper and large coat closet.

 

 

The thoughtful design carries through to the pantry with undermount bar sink, bar fridge and overflow dishwasher after entertaining on a grand scale.  The Gourmet Kitchen features upgraded stainless appliances, Corian counters, a spacious island and elegant herringbone backsplash. The Kitchen is open to the Family Room with an inviting gas fireplace and glass doors and windows that open to a fenced in area perfect for children or the family pet. Additionally, rear sliding doors lead you to the fully screened-in porch overlooking the pond.

 

 

 

The formal Dining Room boasts original pegged maple flooring with a custom metal chandelier and access to an additional screened in porch overlooking the front gardens, creating the perfect place to cozy up with a glass of wine and your favourite book. The Living Room includes a large screen TV above the wood-burning fireplace, the same original pegged maple flooring and plenty of windows for natural light.
