A historic farmhouse with contemporary conveniences. A peaceful country setting minutes from a bustling town. Space to explore and room to rest; 6175 Fourth Line is what dream homes are made of.
Perched on a one-acre corner lot in the family-friendly hamlet of Orton, the home is surrounded by rolling hills and picturesque vistas. The close-knit community is the kind of place where you’ll get to know your neighbours.
The local community centre, which has a park, playground, and sports facilities, is the perfect place to do just that. It’s located just up the road, as are multiple farms and the Elora - Cataract Trailway. Meanwhile, the town of Erin and all of its conveniences — grocery stores, shops, restaurants, and bars — is just a 15-minute drive away.
Set far back on the sprawling property, the home itself offers modern design while maintaining its rustic charm. At nearly 4,000 sq. ft. there’s enough room for the whole family, plus weekend guests.
This is best exemplified by the great room; the space was fashioned out of the original 1800s farmhouse that once graced the property, and the mantlepiece of the grand fireplace was created using reclaimed wooden beams from the original barn.
The result is a cozy, inviting space that’s perfect for curling up on snowy Sunday mornings and entertaining on fun-filled Friday nights. The warmth of the space is literally and figuratively aided by a wood burning stove just around the corner.
The gourmet kitchen offers top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, hand-poured concrete countertops, a subway-tile backsplash, and a country-inspired island. Set beneath a large window, the dining area includes a spacious built-in bench.
A home office is located just off the main foyer, creating a peaceful environment that’s not too far removed from the action.
The expansive primary suite enjoys stunning views of mature maples, plus an enviable walk-in closet and a five-piece ensuite with an oversized free-standing soaker tub, walk-in rain shower, and his-and-hers quartz vanities.
The unique layout of the second level places three of the remaining four bedrooms at the other end of a long hallway, centred around a family room.

Throughout the home, picture windows fill every room with natural light while allowing for breathtaking views of the property.
Venturing out onto said property, you’re met with the ideal place to unwind and reconnect with nature: sprawling fields offer endless opportunities for your outdoor adventures, while a custom farm-style fence creates a safe space for children and pets to play, too.
There’s enough room on the patio for lounging, dining, and barbecuing. On the other side of some landscaped gardens and lush trees, the foundation of the old barn serves as a more intimate seating area.
Our Favourite Thing
The great room is called that for a reason! Despite the vastness afforded by the vaulted ceilings, the space is cozy and inviting. We can just imagine curling up by the fireplace, hot cocoa (or red wine) in hand, and watching the snow fall quietly outside. Amidst the warmth of the wood burning stove, we bet this space feels just like a big hug.
The three car garage is ready to welcome all your guests. The extended middle bay is large enough for a truck, and there’s enough space left over for a workbench and storage.
If you’re yearning for the cozy country life but don’t want to give up the conveniences of contemporary living, 6175 Fourth Line can offer you the best of both worlds.
Perfectly located, beautiful designed, and expertly appointed, this dreamy farmhouse is not to be missed.
