This Charming Farmhouse Captures The Magic Of Christmas

Picture the perfect holiday host: a happy winter wonderland where children’s laughter, the swish-swish of skates on ice and snowballs whizzing by your earmuffs are the soundtrack of daily life. That’s where designer Angela Wheeler, a former engineer, and Josh Malcolm, a fireplace retailer, live year-round with their four lucky kids, Aiden, 12, Jessie, 10, Stella Jane, 8, and Will, 3, and their dog, Griffin.

They designed and built the 4,000- square-foot, six-bedroom farmhouse on a 30-hectare property near Port Perry, Ontario, surrounded by nothing but rolling hills, forest and sky. Once the snow flies, the firewood is stacked and the pond freezes over, every day feels like Christmas here. “My holiday decorating happens slowly, over many weeks as inspiration strikes,” says Angela.
