My Country Farmhouse – 1872 Stone Farmhouse

This farmhouse was originally built in 1872 and is located in Trent Hills, Ontario.  It has a couple styles of stone on the exterior, multiple porches and a balcony. The house overlooks fields or farmland that offer serenity and natural beauty.

When you enter the house there are 3 things that stand out:

1 – The floors are to die for – solid hardwood in every single room original to the house.

2 – Every single room in the house is yellow.

3 – The detail in the wood work is spectacular.

I entered through the side door which has a covered porch. While I stood on the porch the rain came down making the most beautiful sound.


This is where I first saw the floors. And as I move from the back room to the kitchen, dining room, living room and a library I took note of the 14″ baseboard, window trim and front door.

As you turn to go upstairs you are greeted by a beautiful curved wood staircase with gingerbread spindles.  And as you head up to the landing a cathedral shaped door way with stained glass out to the balcony.

Some of the bedrooms have cute little old closets that are the length of the room. And even the attic hatch had been given a little diamond detail.

This house is approximately 3800 square feet of beauty and character.  It would make a great family home or even an inviting B&B.  I hope you enjoyed the mini tour.
