Welcome to 3274 Concession Road 8, an impressively sized property of approximately 89 acres, and with a scenic rural location in north Clarington.
Situated within the Oak Ridges Moraine, this property includes 55 acres of farmed land - for which the current owners benefit from the Ontario Farm Tax Credit - as well as wooded areas and a creek running through the property.
The original home on this land was built as a farmstead in the late 1800s. The current two storey brick and stone home has been in the same family since the 1960s, and features three bedrooms, an open concept main level, and a huge covered front porch with a wonderful south-facing exposure that overlooks an expanse of fields across the road.
The main level has laminate flooring throughout the kitchen, dining room, and living room - with ceramic flooring in the laundry area and washroom. A centre hall plan divides the living room from the kitchen and dining area, while large windows in these rooms capture the abundance of natural light.
The kitchen has a centre work island, plenty of cupboard and counter space, and includes the existing appliances. Off the kitchen is access to a large cellar with incredible storage space; a laundry area with washer and dryer, as well as additional storage; and the main 4-pc washroom.
The main level also has a separate side door entry opening into a spacious ceramic-tiled mud room with custom wood storage cabinets, and which gives direct access to the kitchen area.
Extra wide solid wood stairs lead to an upper level which features a large linen closet; a 2-pc washroom; and second and third bedrooms that are quite spacious, have laminate flooring, and come with cedar-lined closets. The master bedroom is also finished with laminate floors as well as a wood beam ceiling, and comes with a spacious mirrored door double closet, and plenty of space for a cozy sitting area.
With an idyllic rural setting, this property is the opportunity for peaceful respite from the hustle and bustle of the urban lifestyle. Surrounded by mature trees and farmland, this home is just a short drive to Hwy 115 for the commute to Lyndsay or Peterborough, as well as for access to Hwy 401 and the once-completed 407 extension; while the urban centres of Orono, Newcastle, Bowmanville, Port Perry, and Oshawa are all within 10-30 minute drives away.
