Country Home Exterior & Expansion

This home's thoughtful expansion is a testament to its simple rural pedigree.

Having first spotted this house on the rolling hills of Erin, Ont., a number of years ago, one of its present owners fell hard for its pretty proportions and irresistibly romantic setting. Buillt in 1840, the house was surrounded by intimate gardens and pathways that led to a nearby stream. The modest three-bedroom house was soon enlarged to accommodate visiting children and grandchildren as well as the couple's six canine companions. The design of the newer parts of the country house were based on the original stone farmhouse.
