The Story

Circa 1875, this gorgeous red brick home was the Schoolmaster's house for the adjacent SS#8. Cosmetically and mechanically updated, this country retreat will suit a variety of buyers. The large front verandah with recessed lighting gives you a great vantage point to watch the world go by. The back deck with hot tub overlooking farmers fields gives you all the privacy you could hope for. Paved driveway suitable for 5+ cars. A board and batten addition houses the enormous great room with recently refinished birch flooring and slate stone, exposed brick wall (and a floating shelf from the original woodshed) and main floor laundry. Beautiful kitchen with cherry wood cabinetry, leathered granite counters, slate backsplash and stainless appliances. Two 3-piece washrooms on the main level, one featuring a restored clawfoot tub. Stairs leading up have been recently refinished and the upstairs features cherry wood floors; a large master bedroom with enormous closet; a great sized second bedroom and a small bedroom/den/office, perfect size for a nursery. Full basement houses mechanicals and a partially finished rec room. Upgraded well pump and tank; Hy-Grade 50 year steel roof and skylights with transferable warranty (2019) and Septic system (2013). Full list of mechanical upgrades available, contact listing agent. 5 minutes to Rockwood, 18 minutes to Guelph, 10 minutes to Acton Go station and 40 minutes to Pearson airport. Someone once told me location is important in real estate.
