This my friends! Was my childhood home. A home located in a wonderfully rural town of Eastern Ontario, known as Apple Hill. This house will make you feel anew! A beautiful country house fit with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, plotted on 6 acres of land that boast a verdant forest and a small stream. The property hosts a lofty barn that is perfect for recreational activities and events. Prepare yourself for a beautiful country retreat you will never forget.
What makes this humble abode unique is its rustic charms. The house was built in the 1930s by a Mr. Hughie Munroe, the local game warden (an old term used to refer to a wildlife or conservation officer). The house has beautiful maple flooring throughout with the main stairwell being made of birch. There are large wood moldings at every doorway and original stained glass windows throughout. There is exposed brick on the main and lower levels, bricked by my father Gilles - the bricks themselves are from the mid 19th century. The kitchen has been recently renovated with slate countertops; the slate slabs were salvaged from an old school in Ontario - once used as chalkboard in a classroom! The upstairs bathroom has a large antique styled bathtub that you can use to soak in and relax - looking out at the towering pine trees. All three bedrooms on the upper level are fitted with queen sized beds and fans for the summer heat. On the basement level you will find two twin beds and a second bathroom. The second bathroom has a shower as well as a washer and dryer. The home is stunning in its structure and eclectic in its history, but the land surrounding it is what is truly beautiful!

Andere dingen waar je op moet letten
Since our house is in such a rural area, the water is not potable. Unfortunately the water is supplied through a well, as is the case for the majority of the surrounding village. We do have a water dispenser in the house, please use this as your source of water for cooking and drinking. We have had a complaint concerning the smell of the water in the showers, it is simply the smell of a natural build up of sulphur. It is a common issue among well water users and we apologize for the inconvenience! Also, due to the rural location we unfortunately do not have Wi-Fi, there isn't a service provider that effectively provides coverage in our town. If you don't have data coverage we recommend that you use this as an opportunity to disconnect from the web world and ground yourself in the moment!
