At some point in life, almost everyone has dreamed of packing up and moving to a picturesque country property with a cozy house, plush green fields, gardens of wildflowers, a charmingly beautiful barn, and maybe even a porch swing to take in some fresh country air.

Well, for anyone who's looking to make that dream a reality, a perfect property has recently come on the market.

Located at 16745 Keele Street in King, the nearly five-acre plot is home to a renovated, yet character-filled, three-bedroom, three-bathroom house, a stunning stone bank barn, a serene pond, and a carriage house. Every inch of this estate is dripping in rustic charm that makes you want to take a breath and appreciate the slower, nature-filled country lifestyle.

The grounds are accented with plots of colourful flowers and towering trees that add to the generational feel of the property. Listing agents Kim Nichols and Khalen Meredith describe it as the perfect place for a hobby farm. The barn is spacious, well-maintained, and connected to a number of fenced off paddocks.

"The century barn is a big opportunity on the property to be used for a variety of possibilities," says Meredith. "As well, the separate carriage house is also open to possibility."


Stepping inside the house, you're met with a modern renovation that embraces an elegant farmhouse design. The living room is framed by a reclaimed wood door frame, leading into a wood-panelled room with a cozy stone fireplace that's just begging for you to curl up by it with a cup of tea and a good book.

The kitchen is an entertainer's dream, with plenty of counter space, high-end appliances, a large farmhouse sink, and room for a long dining table. With several windows that overlook the property, it not only offers stunning views, but is a bright airy room you'll find the whole family spending plenty of time in.

Laundry might not be anyone's favourite activity, but the Pinterest-worthy laundry room in this home will make the chore a bit more enjoyable, thanks to its abundant storage space, wooden countertops, and quality front-loading washer and dryer.

Our Favourite Thing

This property offers the best of both worlds. It's a serene escape from the rest of the world, but is also conveniently located for when you do need to hit the town. It's just an hour's drive from downtown Toronto, or a 15-minute drive to the Aurora GO station if you prefer to take transit. It's also close to all the conveniences that can be found in Aurora, from restaurants to grocery stores, and charming shops.

The bedrooms are amazingly spacious, especially the primary suite. There, an additional living space that can be used as a sitting area or home office flows into a warm, wood-panelled room with exposed beams, ensuring you wake up to a luxurious country feel every morning.

There's no denying that this property is a show-stopper, from the pastures to the powder rooms. It's one of those properties you can see staying in the family for generations, and whoever ends up with it next will have something the whole family will love for years to come.
