Welcome To Peony Hill Farm

168 Bethel Sdrd- 145 Acre Farm in Georgina

168 Bethel Sdrd – 145 Acre Farm

168 Bethel Sdrd – 145 Acre Farm Georgina is known as Peony Hill Farm an L-shaped parcel of gorgeous gently rolling farmland in the Township of Georgina. The house is situated on the high point of the local area and has magnificent 360-degree rural views. There are two-road frontages being Bethel Sideroad and Kennedy Road.

105-acres is farmed by a neighbour who leases the land. An additional 15-acres can be cleared for farming.

The house is an original Ontario Georgian home built by Andrew Morton between 1840-1842. The exterior bricks were made using the clay from the property. The interior of the home projects a feeling of casual elegance as the principal rooms display “sophisticated” features that have been preserved from its original state.

Some of the gracious features typical of a Georgian design include:

  • 10.5 ft. ceiling height on the main floor and 10.2 ft. ceiling height on the upper level,
  • Pine wood flooring thru-out,
  • 17” to 18 ½ “ high baseboard trim and,
  • An abundance of large windows that maximizes the natural light that floods every room
  • Double hung six over six pane windows with each pane 12’ by 18”, and
  • All walls are solid plaster (lath removed in 1966)

 

The current owners have lovingly cared for the home for the past 55-years.  Over the years several upgrades and improvements have been completed including:

  • Roof shingles replaced approximately five years ago,
  • Main bathroom renovated in 2010
  • Powder room renovated in 2015
  • All new copper plumbing thru-out

  • Wood floors were refinished in 1966 and periodically since

Natural gas was installed on Bethel Sideroad in 2000 at which time the current owners hooked-up to natural gas and replaced their furnace with a new forced-air gas system and subsequently in 2005 added a new central air conditioning system.

Peony Hill Farm offers good arable land, gracious country living in a well-preserved original Ontario Georgian home and a great location with Highway 404 only 6-minutes away.
