We are NOT in the village of CREEMORE...but very close - 7k west along County Road 9, two stunning houses, right in the middle of the wee hamlet of DUNEDIN, on the banks of the Noisy River....
Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: I am an artist living in Dunedin and Toronto....ran the Creativity Art Retreat from 2000 until 2015, teaching and painting with hundreds of artists at these very houses in Duned, and co-founded the Majengo Children's Home with 85 children in Tanzania in 2007 to the present. Please see: majengo.org. I have 3 kids, and 5 grandkids...
Why the Owner Chose Creemore, ON, Canada:
I fell madly in love with this property back in 2000; rickity and old, nothing worked, but the bones were there. It is huge, open, airy, and stunning, right on the banks of the Noisy River. I rented my house in Toronto, and moved up with the first snowfall in November, no head - the furnace, ducts and fireplace unusable. The water was silted in the well, had to carry buckets from the river. Slept on the floor with a heater, as we worked all that winter pulling down walls, adding a huge bank of north facing ceiling to floor windows, a massive skylight, re doing electricals, plumbing...it sparkles today. The River House next door came up for sale a few years later, right next door. Fully renovated now, with fabulous windows, cathedral ceilings, pine floors...steps from the river...both places are breath taking, awesome...
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Once, Dunedin's prime general store built back in 1840, both properties are right on the road...with ample parking. But inside, you feel as thought you are far away, private, quiet, facing and steps from the river....trees, clean air...open, bright, up until now it has been filled it with artists and great energy...pine floors, skylights, unique, original paintings, lots of space...looks small and normal from the outside, but inside, it makes you feel you are in Tuscany... Please contact owner re rates...my houses can be rented together or separately...the nightly, weekly or month prices vary depending on number of houses you need, and length of stay. plese call me at 416 951 6528.
