Description

160 Acre Caledon Mansion

160 acre country estate in the heart of Caledon. Multiple houses, distant views, trout pond, tennis, trails, maple sugar shack, sporting clays course, spa, swimming pool. 20,000+ sq ft main residence (GFA) with associated guest houses. This property has hosted the global Who’s Who including Queen Elizabeth II, Eric Clapton, John Lennon, Henry Moore along with various heads of state and Canadian sports and entertainment legends. Garage parking for 14+ cars. The caliber of the offering has never been matched! This is a personal country resort with macro appeal. This is the ultimate multi-generational family property allowing for varied pursuits. The action never stops!

Irreplaceable!
The property is a truly compelling value proposition which will appeal those buyers who appreciate the once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire this bespoke country property created by one of Canada’s leading families. The current zoning limitations would not allow another property to have the breadth of on-site amenities as this property. The main house, gate house, plus 3 additional homes, crystal clear brook trout pond and an internationally designed sporting clays course would not be permitted under today’s regulations. Dare to compare this country property offering!

Views, Privacy, plus Location, Location, Location
The property has pastoral views across the Niagara Escarpment. You will feel you are miles away from civilization, yet the property is 20 minutes north of Pearson International Airport by car or 7 minutes by helicopter! The property has a wonderful range of on-site hiking trails which lead directly to the famed Bruce Trail. The property is 5 minutes from the family-oriented Caledon Ski Club, the historic Caledon Mountain Trout Club and many noted golf courses.

Amenities
The sprawling compound offers its owners and their guests an impressive array of pursuits including trout fishing, swimming, tennis, sporting clays, snowshoeing, pond hockey, hiking, biking, gardening, plus nearby riding, golfing, and skiing. The property includes room for a car collection and has its own private wine warehouse – a collector’s haven. The main house and related outbuildings can host an impressive number of guests to enjoy all these pursuits in a beautiful natural environment. The property attracts an impressive array of wildlife from wild turkeys to deer to waterfowl and an inspiring mix of song birds. All the wildlife is attracted to the custom feeders placed between the main terrace and the trout pond below. The property is also known for its organic on-site produced maple syrup.

The Lands – Over 160 acres
Just imagine being able to assemble over 160 acres in Belfountain!

Without question, this is the finest country offering available. Hawk Ridge Farm, is unmatched in terms of natural beauty, quality of infrastructure and proximity to Toronto (under 1 hour). In today’s regulatory environment, establishing a country estate in such a pristine setting with all of the amenities desired (multiple houses and outbuildings, proximity to your own woodlands and trout pond, range of on-site recreational activities) would be impossible!

Recently upgraded to the highest standards, the main residence is designed in the Tudor Gothic style and is sited to overlook the deep trout pond and to take advantage of the distant countryside views over the Forks of the Credit Valley.

A few of the highlights include: Mahogany windows, wall-to-wall walk-outs and sprawling stone terrace allow one to constantly enjoy the natural setting. Nine intricately framed fireplaces, plaster crown moulding, impressive ceiling heights combine to enhance the principal spaces. A dramatic two-storey foyer with a stately oak staircase creates an impressive introduction and reminds one of the grand lodges of Europe. The living room is anchored with a fireplace at either end and is a perfect room for entertaining. The 2-storey family room is located at the east end of the home and has custom stained-glass accent windows, a walk-out to the terrace and barrel ceiling. The kitchen includes a pantry, fireplace and servery and is perfectly situated alongside the dining room. The kitchen can be either open to the dining room offering views over the property or can be closed off for more formal occasions. The sumptuous master suite features a fireplace, twin dressing rooms, his and her en-suite baths and a private terrace. The wak-out lower level offers your own in-home spa including exercise studio, indoor/outdoor pool, steam room, and changing facilities.

Additional buildings include a Gate House, a luxury Coach House apartment, a Guest Cottage across the driveway from the main house, and a Guest Loft Apartment over the garden garage near the main house.
