Rockwood, near Guelph and Milton, Ontario
Part of the original "Jolliffe" homestead, atop what was once known as “Vinegar Hill” in the town of Rockwood, this charming updated 2240 sq ft. home has the appeal you expect from a Century home from the Ontario Blue Limestone floors in the foyer & kitchen (which carry the heat from the wood stove through the home) to the light fixtures to the stately custom “Shaker” craftsman kitchen with commercial grade appliances, they all offer a taste of yesteryear with modern-day convenience. This will be just one of the many areas family or guests will want to gather: by crackling wood fire in the colder months or spill out to the large deck in the warmer months. How many century homes offer four bathrooms: each one renovated to compliment the character of the home, in a timeless manner with custom showers and pump styled fixtures!
Enjoy the amazing ambiance of the living room with the library paneling, beamed ceiling & wide plank oak floors. The basement is finished with a walk-up and the possibility of adding an in-law suite. Sitting on almost an acre, the property is just as grand and unique as the home and boasts four outbuildings. Detached garage has a heated man-cave loft with pool table and bar area (approx 22'x18' with hydro) and the cutest stone “She-Shed/Hobbit house” – the kids will be fighting mom for the key! Can’t forget the "Saloon" with hydro, and the single-story workshop (both approx 15'x30'). Surrounded by trees, there is a large cleared area at the top of the hill, for tobogganing or snowboarding and after relax by the fire-pit or take a dip in the hot tub!
The property has lush perennial gardens, large raised garden beds, rain collection barrels, and composting area. Sitting on nearly an acre, there are possibilities for solar and wind energy systems.
Come on out and see this property for yourself. It's located only 15 min from Guelph, 10 min from Acton, and only 40 min to get to Toronto Pearson.
Rockwood offers many amenities including grocery store, gas stations, many restaurants, and the Rockwood Conservation Area is just mins away. This amazing village hosts the Famous Farmers Tractor Parade in Dec and they have a great Farmers Market from May-Oct weekly in the heart of the village. It's easy to get around town on foot from this property- it is centrally located- and the kids can walk to the local schools.
