In the Garden of Eden
Located on 60 glorious acres surrounded by ponds and with Noisy River Provincial Park on both sides, this utterly quiet, private retreat embodies tranquility. Its location makes it a rare find. The 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom 3,300-square foot home provides plenty of room for extended gatherings, but at the same time it’s cozy enough for two.
Step back in time
Rolling hills, starry skies, clean air—this is a place where life bubbles along at a comfortable pace. Set out long tables and gather on the lawns for lobster boils, BBQs, wine tastings and picnics. Or stroll in uninterrupted tranquility, arm in arm. This place is a haven for all ages, a place to relax as well as a gathering point for family get-togethers. The way it used to be. Visiting nearby Creemore reinforces the impression of a bygone era, bringing you back to an unhurried tempo where neighbours stop to pass the time of day.
Outdoor pursuits are the feature here: stroll the forested paths or the Bruce Trail deep into the adjacent Park, walk across the lawn to the multi-level deck for a paddle or swim in the closest of 3 immense spring-fed ponds, like glorious lakesframed by weeping willows. You may prefer simply to soak and relax in the in-deck hot tub. Your Garden of Eden is rural wonderland in a sea of tranquility just 18 minutes from Creemore, Mad River Golf and Devil’s Glen Ski Club.
An ideal layout for all ages
A cheery powder red, this bright home is exceedingly well laid out with primary living spaces on the main level including a main floor master/en suite with walk-in closet. On the main floor you’ll find a high, burnished wood ceiling complete with skylights, huge windows facing the main pond and a lovely open plan. The well-appointed custom kitchen features ample solid wood cabinetry and a large island—plenty of room for preparing feasts. The adjacent dining area and living room combine to create an expansive entertaining space with views over the pond anchored by an oversized stone wood burning fireplace. Off the kitchen a breezy screened sunroom, perfect for quiet reflection or a game of cards, completes the home’s central hub. Two other main floor bathrooms service guests and the additional bedroom on this level, while the third and fourth bedrooms occupy the loft and share the 4th bathroom. Steps down from the main level is a spacious recreation room with stone wood burning fireplace and walk out access to the rear table land and deck.
Directly adjacent to the main house, the screened gazebo is an ideal location to be still, watching the sun come up over the ponds, a cup of coffee warming your hands. Later in the day it’s a natural gathering place to watch the kids running from the ponds to the pool to the hot tub, paddle boating, rowing, canoeing…or hooking trout after trout, enough for a big fish fry.
Entertainment central & room a-plenty
From the open floorplan and incredible views to expansive lawns, wooded trails and enormous ponds, entertaining is a delight. With 4 bedrooms and screened porches, you won’t be wanting for guest accommodation. Storage and utility is not an issue either, with dedicated in-house basement storage space, separate garage, greenhouse and additional storage outbuilding.
Superb location, solid long-term investment
This country retreat is located just southwest of Creemore, closest to the intersection of Highway 124 and County Road 9, just 1¾ hours from central Toronto, 20 minutes to private ski and golf clubs and 80 minutes from Pearson International Airport. This is classic farm country amid rolling hills. Surrounded as it is by Noisy River Provincial Park, this forested property benefits from a massive ‘extended’ back yard. It’s also well protected from threat of development.
For those looking to unplug yet re-connect with nature, family and friends in a pristine, safe environment.. you have arrived.
