About

Formerly a one-room schoolhouse, this newly renovated home (top to bottom) is truly exceptional. It is a light-filled, serene space with many windows looking out on the yard, surrounding fields and woods. This home has three large and beautiful bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a loft for extra sleeping/play space, and a long desk/workspace tucked into one corner of the main level. New woodstove, and all new wiring, plumbing and mechanicals throughout the house. Basement is full height, with heated concrete floors; lots of room for storage or extra living space. Located in Zorra Township, Oxford County, at a rural intersection (one road is paved). The nearest small town, Embro, is approximately 8 km away; larger towns (Stratford, Woodstock, St Marys and Ingersoll) are approximately 20-25 km; downtown London is just 35 minutes away. Lots to do and see in this area: biking and hiking at various conservation areas, everything that Stratford has to offer, as well as many local historical and cultural sites. If you're looking for a quiet place to work or rest in inspiring surroundings, and if you like the idea of waking up to birdsong and possibly a deer-sighting, this could be for you. Flexible terms and conditions.
