Are you ready for fresh air, tranquility, maple syrup, the Milky Way and 98 acres to call your own? This versatile property has cut trails through mixed bush for exploring on foot, snowshoes, cross country skiis, or on horseback. Additionally, there are 40 acres of tillable land to work, 10 acres of Maple Bush for tapping and a chance to raise your family where the only noise is the occasional horse neigh!

 

 

 

The main house sits at the end of a 600-foot driveway surrounded by flower gardens and glistening ponds. Built in 2004 by the current owners, it is 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. Solid doors, custom baseboards and trim, beautiful engineered pecan & maple floors with in-floor heat on 2 levels. The modern kitchen features built-in appliances, granite counter, island, stunning cherry cabinetry and breakfast nook leading to the sun filled deck. Off the kitchen is the living room with an airtight wood stove with stone front, creating a bright yet cozy space for family and guests to catch up. The front hobby room is bright so perfect to start a jigsaw puzzle or needlepoint but be prepared to be distracted by the pastoral views. In addition, the main level has a formal dining room, laundry, 2-piece powder room and inside entry to the oversized 2 car garage.

 

 

 

The second level has 4 large bedrooms. The oversized master boasts a beautiful balcony, walk-in closet, updated ensuite with in-floor heat, quartz counters, separate Jacuzzi tub, shower and double sinks. Down the hall, the 2nd bathroom has a laundry chute and a heated floor.

 

 

 

 

 

The lower level is bright with walk out from the family room to sheltered patio with tiered perennial gardens & hot tub, 5th bedroom, cold room and lots of storage. The lower level also has in-floor heat and a 4th bathroom.

 

 

 

Just a short walk from the house is the horse barn. Beautifully finished with T&G ash with 10 stalls, a wash stall, large heated tack room and the above loft can store up to 1000 small square hay bales. The 4 paddocks have automatic waterers for the horses, 4 lean-tos for shelter and the secure electro-braid fence system. Directly behind is the 70 x 150 riding arena. Close by is the huge drive shed with electrical panel, perfect for storing your equipment but a great building for almost anything.

 

 

 

This property offers so much versatility. Country living at its best, trails to blaze, maple syrup to make, wild grapes to harvest, ponds to fish in, swim in, skate on! The property is 5 minutes South of Markdale where there is shopping, banking, hospital and a planned new Foodland grocery store to replace the existing one.

 

This property is currently listed at $1,450,000. For more information, please contact Gail Crawford and Read Hilton at (705) 445-5454
