On the property, it is not uncommon to see deer, wild turkeys, beaver, duck, geese and great blue herons- truly a northern Canadian experience.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1970

              About the owner: I am in my mid sixties, live in Toronto and run my own business brokerage company. This property has been in the family now for more than 40 years. There are 2 houses on the property which my sister and I share. The details listed here are for the larger of two houses on the property. The other smaller house is about 1/4 mile away, out of sight of the main house, has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and is also available for rent. I often rent the bigger house out for the entire winter for skiers

              Why the Owner Chose Clearview:
              My father bought this property as a weekend place because of its beauty, the trout pond, its seclusion and the proximity to Toronto. This was the 2nd home for our family. We have gone on weekends all year round for years and there are many other Torontonians who weekend in this area. It is wonderful in all seasons of the year for outdoor sports - see below and it is close to all amenities. Necessities can be bought nearby and there are good dining spots very near by.

              The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
              85 aces of ponds & forests all for your use. Your own tennis court, swimming pool and trout pond. Hiking in the summer and snow-shoeing and cross-country skiing in the winter on the property and just off the property. The house is a spacious, well equipped and nicely furnished with 2 Master bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. Downhill skiing nearby. The house is big enough to be shared by 8 people and so could be used for a reunion of family and friends. You could also use it as home -base for skiing venture in either Collingwood or Mansfield, a nearby ski resort.
