The rustic aesthetic isn’t going anywhere in 2023, and this converted barn in rural Ontario goes big on it with floor-to-ceiling wood panelling and natural textures.
Located on 10 acres of forest outside Uxbridge, 2458 Concession Road is on the market for CAD 3.795m via Royal LePage Connect Realty and was built in 2018. The seven-bedroom family home incorporates an earlier barn into its floor plan, which extends to a whopping 6,000 sq ft.
The barn’s rugged gun-metal exterior tips its hat to its agricultural roots, while interiors have an organic feel thanks to the plethora of timber on show. The great room, for example, has 27-ft-high ceilings crossed by hewn beams and a four-sided wood stove around.
Living ‘Zones’ fan out around the stove, with an area for dining, seating and a substantial open-plan kitchen. Here a 23-ft-long saloon-style island looks like it’s plucked from a bar, with seating for ten people.
The Ontario property is a short drive from ski resorts and trails, and the house has a private saltwater pool and hot tub, as well as a workshop, garage and land, offering the potential to turn it into a country B&B.
