A five-bedroom, five-bathroom farmhouse built in 1910 and located on Highway 62 in the heart of Prince Edward County. It’s a 15-minute drive from Sandbanks Provincial Park as well as the region’s famous wineries, breweries and beaches.
The current owner—a company that specializes in restoration projects—purchased this property for $463,000 two years ago. They spent a year gutting the place, modernizing the interior and preserving the Victorian exterior. Now it’s back on the market.
During renos, the owner added this wrap-around porch, which touches three sides of the home.
The foyer and open-concept living area is defined by its shiplap ceilings and many windows.
Here’s a closer look at the living area, which comes with a gas fireplace and built-in shelving.
Opposite the living area is the reading nook. Those pine floors are reclaimed barn board from the Ottawa Valley.
The dining area walks out to the wrap-around porch.
In the kitchen: a two-seat island, plenty of storage, stainless steel appliances and subway tiling.
A closer look showcases the farmhouse sink, two ovens, open shelving and gold accents.
Down the hall is the mudroom with custom closets.
The den also has this adjacent bathroom with a glass shower and a rainfall head.
There are five bedrooms on the second floor. This is one of them.
The main bedroom is 200 square feet. It comes with vaulted ceilings and overlooks the surrounding gardens.
The main ensuite bathroom features a clawfoot tub, a double vanity and a pleasant view.
Moving to the basement reveals the rec room. Those stone walls are locally sourced, and the polished concrete floors are heated.
Next to the rec room is the 600-bottle wine cellar
This pergola out back was also added during the latest reno.
The backyard is serene.
Lastly, the renovated barn, set against an Andrew Wyeth–like landscape.
This is not your typical barn.
Inside, the space could be used as another bedroom—or to just watch the world go by.
