760 Concession Rd 2 West, Warkworth
Breathtaking views are the cornerstone to this remarkable property. Situated on a meandering country road at the edge of Warkworth, the enchanting 70 acre hobby farm is surrounded by million dollar views, pasture, rolling hills, woodland, trails, a pond and cabin and Burnley Creek that flows year round.
The property is both striking and peaceful. Rolling pastures unfold as you enter the cedar hedge lined drive. Glorious perennial gardens frame the courtyard and Owen Sound stone patios surround the farmhouse. Originally dating back to 1870, the main house was expanded and lovingly renovated in 1997. Chic and uber-comfortable, the farmhouse presents open and intimate living areas that create a relaxed sense of space.
The welcoming wrap around covered verandah gives way to the interior where the sun room with slate flooring and tongue and groove ceiling is bathed in light offering a favoured place to languor with a good book.
Handsome wide double French doors offer access to the great room, showcasing 4 deep view windows where lovely painted plank floors and a brick fireplace with efficient wood-burning stove invite both conviviality and relaxation.
Nearby, the charming well-appointed country kitchen provides a backdrop for meal preparation and welcomes gatherings around its centre island. Wooden painted floors and vintage appointments such as the tongue & groove ceiling, metal counters, vintage enamel sink and transom over the original wooden entrance door are reflective of years gone by. Appliances include Bosch built-in dishwasher, a built-in cooktop stove, built-in oven, refrigerator, warming oven & microwave.
The kitchen flows easily to the spacious adjoining dining room where warm painted wood floors, large windows, wall sconce lights and a beautiful overhead premium fixture create a wonderful backdrop for dinner parties.
The main level is completed by a sunny three piece bath with shower and a well appointed, functional laundry /mud room with access to the out of doors. The laundry incorporates a wall of double closets, large front loading side by side washer, dryer, wash tub and space for freezer.
Cheerful upper level comprises a lofty den area at the top of the stairs, a spacious master with sitting area, and two additional guest bedrooms, each with large sun-filled windows providing glorious views over the farm.
The main bath is an oasis of deluxe vintage style with its stand-alone claw foot soaking tub, corner shower unit, fabulous vintage pedestal sink and antique recessed mirrored medicine cabinet.
The horse paddock and small barn /run in shelter welcome equestrian pursuits.
A generously sized greenhouse provides an opportunity for horticultural interests and a delightful garden building , with original chicken coop is ideal as a studio or for gardening equipment storage.
This remarkable hobby farm or retreat celebrates its rural lifestyle inside and out. Located near the destination arts village of Warkworth, the farm is within a 35 minute drive to Cobourg, and just over an hour to the GTA! Rarely Does An Opportunity Such As This Present Itself!
