On a quiet country road, across from the Grand River Conservation Area and the magnificent Elora Gorge, you find the hidden jewel of Elora. The gated entry leads up a winding lane to a secluded, five plus acre, hilltop retreat. You may catch a glimpse of whitetail deer, geese, herons, hawks and wild turkey traversing your own private enchanted forest. As you enter, a serene oasis awaits you in the Great Room. The karma flows through you like a gentle rain, massaging each thought into serenity. Inhale the warmth of the square log beams and the rustic stone fireplace, the fire welcoming you with its rich tapestry of colors. The master bedroom offers a triple French door walkout onto a private deck, with the most verdant of views, overlooking the rolling hills, dotted with trees and flowering shrubs- the perfect place to share a sip of champagne. The ensuite boasts an oversized Jacuzzi and skylight. Enjoying the solitude, you sit out on the deck, under the stars, a bit of chill in the air, the sound of rushing water from the outdoor tiered aquascape lulling you to sleep. A midnight candlelit swim tops off the evening. This is our idea of HOME.
