The place

A six-bed, five-bath farmhouse off Highpoint Side Road in rural Caledon. The property comes with a garage designed to fit two G-Wagens, plus an EV charger. The layout includes a first-floor bedroom with ensuite, which could be converted into a nanny or in-law suite. And the basement, while unfinished, could be renovated to add two more bedrooms and a bathroom. Also hidden within the walls: a medical-grade air purifier, a whole-home steam humidifier, a reverse osmosis water system and UV water filtration.

The spot is a short drive to downtown Orangeville, the Pulpit Club and the Caledon Ski Club.

The history

The current owners bought the land in June 2021, hiring Caledon Build and interior designer Nathalie Thorel to create a modern family home with plenty of amenities. Construction began in the fall of 2021 and was completed by November 2022, when the family moved in. Now, just four months after taking possession, the owners needs to move back to the city for work obligations, so they’re selling the farmhouse.

The powder room is just across from the office. It has a dark marble vanity and half-tiled walls. The nautical wallpaper is an ode to the East Coast roots of one of the owners.
