Located across from the Guelph Auto Mall, this century farmhouse is an unexpected gem.
Offering impressive space, this 3,000-square-foot home hosts five bedrooms and 4 bathrooms on a sprawling seven-acre farm. It is actually the childhood home of the current owner, who was born there and, now grown, moved in with his own family only two years ago.
You will certainly be in awe of the beautifully designed space as it was recently featured on HGTV’s Farmhouse Facelift. Before the renovations, the space was very compartmentalized and broken up into specific rooms; post-renovation, the space is much more open giving it modern accessibility while still maintaining elements of a classic farmhouse.
The pièce de résistance is certainly the kitchen, which the owner describes as the centrepiece of the home. There is a unique island that is u-shaped and adds modern elegance to the kitchen, along with new windows that brighten up this space. An incredible spot for entertaining, this spacious kitchen can seat up to twelve people and is a favourite hangout for the owner and his family.
A two-level home, the upstairs features what was once a “servants’ quarters” and an additional apartment, which is a new element added by the current owners.
Throughout the home, you’ll find delightful elements of the original farmhouse including 16” baseboard trim that now lines the windows. The small accents reminiscent of the original home add a unique and nostalgic feel to this picturesque farm paradise.
Don’t forget to check out the backyard—the home has been beautifully landscaped and includes recent renovations you’re sure to love.
