Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Living and working primarily in Toronto this property is a welcome escape in a wonderful and vibrant community.

Why the Owner Chose Picton, ON, Canada:
As a second property we decided living in town was the way to go - close to the shops, grocery stores, great restaurants as well as in quick driving distance from all the wonderful wineries, galleries, beaches and attractions in the County. We love the historical feel of the house and the quiet neighbourhood that it's in. The pool gives it that feeling of a resort - it's a great spot!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Guests that have stayed at this house have really enjoyed the screened porch and the pool, of course, but they have also loved the old fashioned feel of the house complimented with modern conveniences like great beds, sofas, flat screened tv, Keurig coffee maker,etc. They like the gardens with both flowers and herbs and vegetables and the very modern outhouse and have enjoyed what the area can offer such as bike rentals, yoga, massages, wine tours, old time movies - and a drive-in! - basically the feeling of small town 'yesterday' in 2015.
