The Municipalities of Grey Highlands enjoy one of the best natural wonders Ontario has to offer. Translated to our quest for respite from the daily hubbub of the city - it offers Beaver Valley, a majestic segment of the Bruce Trail; Waterfalls; Golf Courses - Ferns Golf and Country Club and Townsend Lake Golf Course & Country Range (both minutes from our Compound. For the more actively inclined, there are kayaking in the Beaver River or just paddle in Lake Eugenia, Irish Lake, Wilcox Lake or Bells Lake for a relaxing day of canoeing. And then there is skiing in the World Class Talisman Resort.....just to name a few. Minutes to shopping, restaurants, schools in Flesherton (I think they have the best French Fries at South Grey Inn and Restaurant).
The Bennies Compound comprises of three Bavarian Stucco and Stone Architecture, plus raised Inground Pool with surround deck and wet bar, on approximately 5 forested acres overlooking looking the river. Extremely private, yet only minutes to Flesherton, it is well hidden by a lush curtain of majestic trees and accessed via two Stone Pillars and 8' Steel Gates. Tons of area lime stones used to construct walls gardens and patios - two as an extension of the Pillars.
The Main Residence is about 5,000 sq.ft. with a self contained two level apartment on the Second and Third Floors. The latter can be accessed via a wide side exterior stairs to the Second Level. The Principal Unit has two kitchens as the Bennies like to entertain; and a walk-out to a Patio that leads to the River from the Living Room. Both Units have large Sun Rooms, 41' 3¼" x 9' 6¾" and 37' 3" x 4' 5¾" respectively, with the Principal Unit having more of the River View and the Apartment Unit overlooking lush greens and the pool.
The Secondary Residence houses a two-car garage. The Great Room is 13' 9" x 27' 5" with a Flag Stone Wall-to-Ceiling Fire Place and walk-out to a huge terrace overlooking the river. It also has an Steel and Glass Gated Atrium with 6 Skylights and Indoor Flower Bed.
The Third Structure is another two-car Garage with a Work Shop.
All-in-all, I think the Bennies Compound is incredible value with the epitome of rustic charm and green space.
