Richard's Notes


I know the title of this property is a bit "off".  I swear I can hear Beethoven's notes as I approach the farm.  The composition of the different environments of fields, forest and river with a century home and barn is like a symphony of bucolic charm to me. And the "Little Britain" of the title, it seems all the Scotsman called each other up one day in the U.K. and emigrated en masse to this hamlet.

I took the scenic route on Zion from HWY 2 off Port Perry on the second visit.  It didn't hit me as much the first time as I was zooming across the dirt road - the sheer majesty and luxury of having a couple of hundred acres of gently rolling "green carpet" with the tiny house at the very end.  The .7 acre "set back" from Valentia at the cul-de-sac of the tip of Zion is superbly private.  Having a couple of houses leading to the property adds to the appeal of not "absolute isolation".

I hiked along the trail to the river banks in the wooded area.  From the "big smoke city folk's" perspective, it has a marvelous "rain forest" appeal.

I like the idea of a "Gate House".  It is common to subsidize the rent for a working couple to look after the house and the land if this is to be an occasional weekend home.  The previous owners had done an exquisite job renovating the Main House.  I quite like the relatively larger sizes of the principal rooms and the magnificent view each window commands - like a woven tapestry laid-out with different shades and textures of green.  Additionally, the Living Room along with the Master and another bedroom all enjoys the pond view.  Then the high-ceilings are absolutely marvelous.

The additional benefit of having Port Perry's restaurants just 15 minutes away would be great the the evenings that one does not feel like cooking!
