Property description

An original, circa 1860s farmstead, Side Hill Farm combines old world heritage with contemporary architecture and design in an ever-changing, rural Ontario landscape.
The expansive use of rustic stone, metal, wood and glass in the striking reclaimed barn addition is a natural complement to the original red brick Gothic Revival farmhouse. Full of light, this home was designed to bring the landscape in.
Stylish country living

6,075 square feet on two levels

Side Hill Farm was conceived as a home for relaxed entertaining and enjoyment of private country living.

The main house is perfect for a couple but large enough for a family. All rooms have views of the surrounding landscape.
• Master Suite with Propane Fireplace & Two Ensuites
• Open Galley Kitchen with 6 appliances
• Great Room with Wood-burning Fireplace

The natural qualities which make Side Hill Farm special are a unique combination of topography, healthy ecology and abundant wildlife. Fifty acres of open fields and fifty acres of mixed woods deliver the seclusion of your own, private 100 acre park for hiking/snowshoeing.
Side Hill Farm enjoys spectacular views of the surrounding countryside with sunsets over the Niagara Escarpment to the west and the blue waters of southern Georgian Bay to the north. Rolling pastures and two ponds surround a carefully planned and sited homestead, an architecturally-designed principal residence. There is also a hilltop studio barn residence on site which may also be available for rent from time to time.

Apple, pear, cherry and crab apple trees are scattered over lawns and fields. Dry stone walls delineate the entrance to a long, winding driveway, a potager garden and a stunning water feature and plunge pool. Thick, heritage hedgerows boast a variety of trees and provide absolute privacy from the quiet country road and neighboring farms.
