The Muskoka / Parry Sound region is a wonderful place to raise a family and if it’s time to expand to a spacious home with room for everyone we have a property listing in Burk’s Falls you’ll want to view. Whether you have a growing family, older kids, or multiple generations living together, the farmhouse at 227 North Pickerel Lake Rd has plenty of space, inside and out.
With 3,471 square feet, this 5-bedroom, 2-bath home sits comfortably on 3.25 acres of open landscaping. Classic farm-style architecture connects with modern comfort throughout the property. The large living and dining area is the central hub on the main floor, with open access to a cozy family room, the kitchen, a sunroom, mudroom entrance and 2-piece bath.
Wonderful family meals will be a joy to make in the spacious, updated kitchen. Designed by Cutter’s Edge Custom Kitchens, this space holds true to the farmhouse style with shaker-inspired cabinetry. Modern luxury is also included with granite countertops, a centre island and all updated, built-in appliances. The easy-maintenance tile flooring is also heated; there’s no cold toes on winter mornings in this home!
There’s also plenty of light throughout the home, with lots of windows throughout the main and upper floors. With the passthrough window connecting the living room and the mudroom directly, even in winter, this is a light& airy home. Detail features such as built-in shelving in the laundry room and ceiling fans in the bedrooms on the upper floor add both function and character to the home. The airtight wood stove in the living room not only adds to the farmhouse character of this property, but ensures everyone will be warm and comfortable throughout the colder months.
Upstairs, the bedrooms are cozy with plenty of windows to let in light, and easy to care for with the installed laminate flooring. The finely updated 5-piece bathroom includes a double vanity and full bath/shower, as well as extra cupboard space. The farmhouse style is accentuated across the upper floor with finely crafted wood paneling walls along the hallway and within the bedrooms. Wood railings, window frames and doors also add to the warmth and comfort. The full-height basement has an extra finished room, ideal for an office, games room or perhaps even an extra bedroom.
What really sets this spacious farmhouse apart as an ideal place for a large family, is the guest house and Quonset-hut style garage. When you come to view the property, you’ll also discover a “cabin in in the woods”. This cozy space comes with its own 2 pc bathroom and kitchenette; the options for how to use this space are endless. It could be the ideal “Mother-in-law” cottage, or perfect playhouse for the kids. Need a quiet place to work from home or practice yoga? This could be the spot. Add in the large Quonset-hut garage and workshop space also on the property, and you have room for everyone and their hobbies, recreational vehicles, and storage.
The farmhouse at 227 North Pickerel Lake Rd also offers the serenity of the country, with over 3 acres of private, open landscaping surrounded by wooded forest, and its own pond. From evening BBQs in the summer, to snowshoeing in the winter, it’s easy to take advantage of the location of this home and spend time outdoors. It’s also conveniently located within a quick drive to Burk’s Falls, a charming village with close-knit, community ties, plenty of recreation opportunities, and locally owned restaurants and shops.
