Property description

Located on Lake Ontario in the heart of Prince Edward County’s Hillier wine district, this 4 bedroom, 3 bath all-season waterfront retreat is ideally located for families, beach lovers, cyclists, golfers, equestrians, wine enthusiasts, antique collectors, bird watchers, hunters, fisherman, cross country skiiers and those who enjoy fine cuisine.

Nestled on a shady two-acre lot with over 300 ‘ of private waterfront surrounded by vineyards and farms, Morganshire Glen faces south and offers unobstructed blue water views of Lake Ontario. Watch the sun rise over the famous Sandbanks Provincial Park and be mesmerized by the waves breaking along the 300’ of private waterfront that features a gently sloping limestone shelf that is perfect for wading and swimming.

As you enter this central-hall two-story home, you are greeted by a large living room with cathedral ceilings, pine floors and a collection of unusual artifacts and antiques including an upright Grand Piano. Looking out of the large picture windows, you will be treated to sweeping views of Lake Ontario from almost every room. The formal dining room seats eight and the bright, colorful kitchen features Paderno and includes everything required for the cooking enthusiast.

Completing the main floor is a spacious bedroom with a double bed, a 4-piece bath, a laundry room with a washer / dryer and your very own home-office with wireless Internet and a picture-perfect view overlooking the lake. There is also an attached two-car garage ready to store your bikes and beach gear.

The second floor has three more bedrooms--two with double beds and a shared 3-piece bath plus an exceptional master bedroom with a large private bath, a queen size bed, a gas log stove, and a private library with a cozy balcony overlooking the garden and the lake.
For parties over 8, there is a rustic 'bunkie' secluded in the lilacs on the waters edge that sleeps two additional guests who are treated to outstanding views and crashing waves. Featuring a double bed, a tiny kitchen, a screened porch and a private outdoor shower with hot and cold water, It is available for a modest additional charge who just want a romantic place with lots of privacy.

The landscaped patio has table seating for six and lots of outdoor chairs and tables for lounging around the waterfront. For the kids, there’s ping-pong, foosball, badminton.

And given that it’s only a 2-hour drive from Toronto and 4 hours from Ottawa, in no time at all, you can get away from it all.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I am a IT Program Manager who loves nature and loves living in the country. I am an avid hiker, soccer and ball hockey player. I am a patron of the arts and attend the many concerts, theater, TIFF and films that take place in the area and beyond. Having lived in many countries and currently work in Toronto Ont. I have two children - my daughter is in medical school in England and son is in high school in Toronto. Both love coming here for holidays.

Why the Owner Chose Wellington:
I bought this place because it is only 2 hours from Toronto by car or train and for me the best life of all is living in the country with easy access to the city. What was most appealing about this particular area is that although it is largely rural, it is surprisingly sophisticated with very fine restaurants, a vibrant art, music and literary community all within minutes of my house. Being an avid outdoorsman, my house is located in the country right on Lake Ontario but is very private. When I am standing in front of the house looking at the lake I don't see any other houses or signs of civilization. In three minutes, I can be at a beach at the end of my road where I can walk for a mile and not see another human being .

The Unique Benefits at this House:
My property faces south so the house gets great light streaming in from the many large windows. Also, the beachfront is a limestone shelf that gradually extends out into the water so you can wade out into the water about 100' before it's over your head. Swimming is great. No sand, no rocks, no moss, no vegetation of any kind in the water. And no people walking along the shoreline. It's very private. People who own property along the shore keep to themselves and there is no public access anywhere nearby. Also, there is great fishing for bass, pickerel, pike, and sunfish just a few minutes away. My favourite thing in the morning is taking my dogs for a long walk along the beach or riding my bike into town (5 K) and having breakfast at the Tall Poppy where they have extraordinary coffee from Costa Rica, Ethiopia, you name it. In the same little town these are two very fine restaurants, a grocery, LCBO, drug store, antique shops, art galleries, boat rentals, tennis courts, golf course, and a public beach--all just a 3 minute drive from my house. So, even though I live in the country, the little community of Wellington has just about everything I need. Also, when I want to sample some wine, there are 8 vineyards within 5 minutes of the house, When I'm feeling more adventurous, Sandbanks is only 15 minutes further and so is Picton--a quaint town of 5,000 that has lots of cool shops, restaurants, galleries, a movie theatre, bars with music--all within walking distance of each other.
