About This Property

As anyone who has ever taken a Sunday drive through the countryside would know, farmhouse style is not a formula with a fixed inventory of features. Special country houses have an almost intangible sense of the land and its traditions, a setting suited to a way of life. Originally homesteaded around 1862, Orchard Glen Cottage (c.2004) finds its footing in modern times through a layout that encourages a simple way of living: comfortable light filled spaces that maintain clear focus in the face of convention. The 12 acre property has been in the family for generations, making it one of the Island's longest settled homesteads. Old orchards, open pastures and mixed woods dot the land, with Blackburn Creek flowing pleasantly through the farm. Design may move with the times, but the fundamental values which underpin country living never change. Come turn back the clock just a little, and settle into a beautiful lifestyle in the Cranberry Valley.
