Very seldom does a property like this come available on the open market. In the same family for over 56 years, it is time for a new owner to enjoy all the benefits this property has to offer. From the long private drive leading to the renovated 1854 stone farm house, to the majestic million dollar views overlooking the Avon River, this is one of the most scenic properties in Perth County! This property features 100 acres in total, with approximately 40 workable acres (randomly tiled), 3 acre building area, and the balance in pasture lands along both sides of the Avon River, two woodlot areas, and a pond. This property is ideally suited for horses, sheep, or small hobby farm operations. The dwelling is a solid fieldstone home featuring a large country kitchen with deep window sills, and a cast iron woodstove; an inviting living room with pine floors and fieldstone fireplace (propane); 2 pc washroom and laundry/mud room complete the first floor. Upper level has four generous sized bedrooms, modern 4 pc bathroom, and enclosed porch. Water is supplied from a drilled well, and conventional septic system was cleaned out about 6 years ago. Heating is supplied by a forced air, oil burning furnace. Hydro is supplied by a 100amp breaker service, with hard wiring set up for back-up generator. The outbuildings consist of a driveshed measuring 40ft x 80ft, and a metal frame barn measuring approx. 36ft x 40ft originally set up for sheep farming.
If you are looking for a property with privacy, old world character, majestic views of the Avon River, spectacular sunsets, and only two miles from Stratford and the world famous Shakespeare Theatre, this is the property for you!
