This rural property is nothing short of epic. Located just past Burgoyne, ON, the convenience of in-town living is hardly sacrificed to make way for the pastoral life. Not too far from Port Elgin, Southampton and Paisley, (except during those extreme winter months when we are all buried under ten feet of snow and ice, and any venture into the harsh conditions may end in calamity… BUT, then again, nature does not discriminate. Whether in town or not, leaving your home just isn’t an option!), it’s the perfect home for the Clampett family wannabe; hillbilly at heart but with all the modern conveniences (minus that nouveau riche aura).
At 3000 sq. ft., the property provides antiquity; a memoir of 1854, when it was constructed. Shadows of the past accenting the modern addition through the details of exposed brick, century-old pine floors and a charismatic Butler’s staircase.
There are 3 bedrooms upstairs as well as a recently updated 4-piece bathroom. The main level is composed of a spacious family room with beautiful views of the natural surroundings, a breakfast nook/sun room with patio doors to the backyard, an updated kitchen, large formal dining room, a formal living room with gas fireplace and a full bathroom/laundry area with crawlspace access. There is also a traditional farmhouse basement which houses the electrical and heating systems, and functions as a small work space.
The property itself is stunning; meticulously maintained, its edges adorned with perennial groupings. A recently constructed outbuilding currently operates as a music studio, with heating and electricity; it could also be set up as a completely fantastic workshop.
This house has it all.. and more! It’s sure to make you ‘happy as a gopher in soft dirt.’
