156 Barden Street, Guelph/eramosa

From the highpoint of this 160 acre swath of rolling farmland running right to the boundary of storied Eden Mills, you can look across verdant countryside to neighbouring Rockwood and beyond. Yet stroll down the grassy hill to where the cedars start and through which the Eramosa River marks your boundary from villagers on the other side and you can't help but wonder how life can be so good. This combination of some 100 acres of productive farmland in concert with another 60 or so of idyllic river lands, does not come often on a paved road in one convenient and affordable package just 15 minutes east of the University of Guelph and 45 minutes east to Pearson airport and the whole world. To complete the picture, a modest 1880's stone house is tucked up the lane amid towering century old maples as you would kind of expect. Nearby, a conundrum awaits. Do you restore the picturesque ruins of the old stone barn or rent them as a movie set? Decisions, decisions. But one should be easy to make... do I want to miss this opportunity for a lifetime of fresh air, organic gardens, the orange flash of orioles at the feeder, land to work, more to play on, bonfires in the backyard, cooling dips in the river... and a tidy investment return down the road ? NO. No, you won't want to miss any of this. But remember, while good things come to those who wait, properties like this come to those who call first. (id:6289)
