2550 Concession 6 Uxbridge

 

Perched on one of the highest elevations in the Oak Ridges Moraine, this spectacular 56.2-acre forested property offers both long and short views of the forest and of the Toronto skyline and Lake Ontario.  As you enter the wrought-iron entry gates your love of the land and your curiosity will be heightened as you meander up the .4km private paved tree-lined lit laneway which graciously climbs to the crest of the rolling land where the house is situated.

A private lit gazebo; which is located on a grassy knoll one-third of the way up the laneway, is a tempting spot to spend quiet time to connect with nature and enjoy the plethora of birds that have also chosen this place to call home.

There are conservation lands that completely surround the property to ensure the natural beauty of this magnificent setting is protected for years to come.  There are incredible walking and riding trails on the property with access to the Durham forest and the trail system, which is literally located in your own backyard.

Custom built in 1983 by Bernie Loates, a well-known Canadian artist, lithographer and publisher; the house was built with his recognizable attention to the smallest of details right from the initial design stage.  It would appear that Mr. Loates spent considerable time deliberating over many aspects of the property including the positioning of the house on the property much like where an eagle builds its nest in order to maximize views in all directions.  Mr. Loates spared no expense to ensure he had unobstructed views and buried all hydro services to avoid obstructed views from hydro poles.

This home is the quintessential “country house” that you see in country living and architectural magazines. Tastefully designed with five fireplaces, large picture windows, vaulted ceilings and offers approx. 8,900 sq. ft. of finished living space.  This is a great home for both indoor and outdoor entertaining.  The backyard offers a spa-like oasis with a large inground salt-water Gunite swimming pool and a large patio.

  • All windows and south facing doors replaced in 2004 using Pollard top of the line windows.
