Those in the market to (finally) bite the bullet and escape Toronto’s concrete in favour of an idyllic family home in the country have a new freshly listed and picture-perfect option. 

The timeless 4192 square foot stone and wood home at 214 Russell Street East was just listed for $3,899,000.

Located in the charming village of Thornbury -- the largest apple growing region in Ontario and the epitome of refined small-town living -- the five-bedroom, five-bathroom house checks all the boxes when it comes to the ideal family home.

For starters, it has all of that precious space and access to nature that families have been craving since the onset of the pandemic. Surrounded by trees, the home is located on just under an acre of land and backs onto the banks of the pristine Beaver River. 

Its main floor open concept design allows for plenty of natural light and is complete with peaceful forest views. The main floor also features a formal dining room with vaulted ceilings, as well as an office -- an absolute necessity these days. The kitchen is spacious and open, with high-end appliances and a large central island that families will love to collect around. 

But the star of the show on the main floor is arguably the cozy yet sophisticated great room, which features floor-to-ceiling windows and a floor-to-ceiling fireplace. 

Upstairs, the primary bedroom features a large walk-in closet and a five-piece bathroom. Four other spacious bedrooms lend themselves to entertaining and growing families.

Other notable features of the home include an in-ground swimming pool, a pool shed with heated shower, and a heated double-car garage. A finished basement features a family room bar area, perfect for a night cap (without the kids).

Perhaps the biggest draw for some, the home also shines in the location department. The postcard-worthy Thornbury -- with its schools, dining, waterfront, and skiing options -- is just a short distance away. And, if you really miss it, Toronto is still just a two-hour jaunt away down highway 400S.
