Cottage of the Week: $3.9 million for a big, modern farm in central Ontario

Cottage of the Week: $3.9 million for a big, modern farm in central Ontario

Address: 7303 18/19 Nottawasaga Side Road
Neighbourhood: Clearview, Ontario Agent: Patrick Prime, Sotheby’s International Realty Price: $3,900,000

The place: An old-world farmstead with modern metal and glass touches in Clearview, Ontario, with views of the Niagara Escarpment to the west and Georgian Bay to the north.

The history: Sidehill Farm, as the property is known, was built sometime in the 1860s. It’s been thoroughly modernized since, including the addition of a 4,600-square-foot studio barn. The barn, built with reclaimed posts and beams, features an outdoor shower, in-floor heating, a kitchenette, two bedrooms and even a yoga area. Another barn—this one for animals—features two standing stalls for horses, a chicken coop, two insulated well pumps and full height sliding barn doors.

Big selling point: The farm is covered in apple, pear and cherry trees—that’s a whole lots of pies waiting to be baked (and washed down with beer from the nearby Creemore Brewery).

Possible deal breaker: The farm boasts an impressive 100 acres, 50 of which are woods and 50 of which are open fields, but none of those abut a lake, and Georgian Bay is about a 15-minute drive away, which may deter buyers who love the water. If someone is looking to splash around, Sidehill Farm does feature two ponds and a plunge pool, though.

By the numbers:

• $3,900,000 • $3,900 in taxes (2014) • 100 acres • 5 bedrooms • 4 bathrooms • 3 fireplaces • 2 ponds • 1 plunge pool
