A two hundred year old brick farmhouse stands proudly off of a country road, as traditional farmhouses in southern Ontario do. The house, barn and sheds tend 130+ acres of grazing fields, forests and marshlands. The new owners intend to conserve the integrity of the farmhouse, but also make use of the outdoor space and views available on the land, as well as expand and reorganize the floorplan to accommodate more outdoor space, an art studio, and recording studio and a workshop.


The new buildings “hide” behind the historic house, forming a U shaped courtyard open to the setting sun. Family members and artists can enjoy time together outside, and time alone to focus – all within the landscape of rolling hills, meadows and forest.
