Welcome to TOLL GATE FARM!. Steeped in history, this c1881 stone farmhouse once served as a toll gate for travellers along a dirt road between two flour mills located in Galt and Dundas. Today, this 4BR home on 27 acres is a family home/hobby farm. Centrally located to Cambridge, Guelph, Hamilton & Brantford, the house has been updated mechanically while carefully preserving the architecture of yesteryear, such as 9' ceilings, original plank flooring, window & door mouldings, 13" baseboards, unique curved bannister staircase in centre of the home, and original doors with original crafted hardware etc. The focal point is the 600 sq ft family room off the kitchen, which once served as a summer kitchen in the late 1800's/ early 1900's. This room features cathedral ceiling, exposed beams, 2 skylights, exposed stone wall and an impressive stone hearth & fireplace, with stone gathered from the property! The fireplace is a high-efficiency wood-burning stove from RSF Energy and has been featured in an issue Popular Science magazine . Modern updates include main floor laundry, updated kitchen with new SS appliances, 200amp service, aluminum shingled roof with 32 years left on 50 year warranty, updated plumbing, raised head well with new submersible pump & piping to house&barn in 2018, and a top-of-the line NORWECO HYDRO-KINETIC septic system in 2019. A 3 box stall horse barn with tack room, 5 bay garage/ drive shed, 3 paddocks, and large hayfield complete the picture. (id:32152)
