French Chateau Inspired Estate with Sprawling Acreage
Down a private half a Km long drive that purposely wraps around a manicured spring-fed pond, this exquisite French chateau inspired estate with nearly 14,000 sqft of living space is set back + overlooks the pond to perfectly capture the manor’s beauty + reflections at dusk. From almost every window in the home, enjoy the infinite picturesque views within the nearly 14-acre grounds with wildlife commonly seen. Stadium-type lighting illuminates the pond at night for large-mouth Bass fishing in the summer and skating in the winter or any other recreational activities of your choosing. The breathtaking natural surroundings of dense forest with hidden trails are waiting to be explored, along with access to 100 conservation acres of walking and biking trails accessed from your backyard.
This is a storybook estate like no other.
Mirrored after a timeless French aesthetic and crafted in a manner that is rarely seen. True brick exterior with keystone corners, copper chimney toppers, iron-detailed dormers and an immaculate custom forged iron and glass front entrance with biometric hardware are a few unique features. The interior welcomes with a bright 2-story, 2-tiered foyer showcasing a classic Scarlett O’Hara open staircase.
The transitions from the centre are seamless; each living space expertly curated with a blend warm walnut + doweled oak hardwood flooring, milled entranceways + panelling, plaster crown moulding, custom built-ins, natural stonework and elegant designer lighting.
The gourmet kitchen is a chef’s delight with an abundance of custom stained solid cherry wood cabinetry with book-matched quartzite counters and backsplash, commercial grade appliances and a solarium-style breakfast area. Seamless transition to the family room with central stone wood burning fireplace and direct access to a rear courtyard. Enjoy a bit of the tropics with private atrium complete with lush tropical vegetation, cedar sauna, spa, cold plunge pool and stream – a breathtaking escape.
The primary retreat is tucked away and features rear terrace overlooking the immaculate grounds and forest, 3-sided fireplace, custom dressing room and spa bath. Three additional bedrooms are generously sized, one enjoys an ensuite and two share ensuite privileges. A finished attic space provides a great flex space and a separate, self-contained and fully equipped guest suite provides two levels of living space.
Luxurious finishes are carried through to the expansive lower level. Fun games room, a cozy media room, two additional beds, gym and 1.5 baths – there is ample space for a large family.
The detached workshop with lift offers plenty of space for vehicles, equipment and toys or the everyday car enthusiast.
An oasis in itself, the rear yard features expansive natural stone patios, bistro and lounge areas, beautiful perennial gardens and a fenced salt-water gunite pool area with dedicated flagstone lounge, flat grassy area and lush perennials.
Astonishing natural surroundings with sprawling acreage and just a short drive to both Guelph and Cambridge, major highways and the local airport. Incredibly connected, while also a private timeless estate with ultimate serenity.
