HOUSE

Thoughfully situated to enjoy the sunny pastoral views of Trincomali Farms and Bluff Park beyond, all rooms in this home have a lovely view of ponds, pasture, or the forest of Bluff Park. Designed by Hank Schubert, the heart of the home is an expansive kitchen with bee’s wax finished cedar ceiling, an AGA stove, custom oak cabinetry, a large pantry, office nook and a expansive wall of floor to ceiling windows which face out into the pond of the sheltered courtyard.

A few steps down past the kitchen is the sunken living room with 14’ cathedral ceilings, a grand stone fireplace and floor to ceiling windows overlooking Trincomali farms. Sharing the same view is the sunroom and dining room. All bedrooms are contained in a separate wing with views of a small pond with foot bridge amoungst the backdrop of beautiful Bluff Park.

Facing the forest is the mudroom, flex room, and 2 car garage, with roughed in plumbing for 2 change rooms and additional bathrooms as the previous had plans to build a pool.

ACREAGE

Bordering the property and lined in large ferns is Murchison Creek ( with water water rights) and a stunning forests of cedar, fir and birch trees. This gorgeous forest lines one side of the property. In the centre is a large gravel pit with 80-100 yards of gravel. On the other side bordering Montague Road is more forest and another idyllic pond. Mid way through the property is another perfect building site with more views of the sunny pasture of Trincomali farms as well as a small meadow. Lots of potential for livestock, gardens or additional structures. Approximately 6 acres of this property is cleared, the remaining is forest.

Pasture and fruit trees surround the home with extensive rockery retaining walls, stairs, paths and encased ponds which were completed in 2004.
