Welcome to 720 Morton Line, an outstanding rural property and farmstead located in the Township of Cavan Monaghan, Peterborough County.
Also known as Tourie Brae Farm, at just over 200 acres in total, this property features 175 acres of land that is certified organic, and has been family-run for over 180 years. The property also includes two barns, two steel storage bins, and a silo; a long driveway encircling a massive tree outside the home; and beautiful gardens surrounding a century home that enjoys stunning views of the rolling farmlands from both its outdoor and interior living spaces.
The footprint of the original brick homestead remains to this day, while later additions of a solarium and an upper level bedroom wing have given the home additional living space. Lined with majestic trees on the west and south sides, the home features both a stamped concrete and an interlocking walkway to a covered front porch that has both a concrete and a wood floor. The 3-season solarium on the south side of the home is surrounded by a deck, which connects to the front porch for wrap-around access from the front to the back yard.
The entrance foyer is ceramic-tiled and has a double coat closet, and the tiles continue through a pocket door entry into a mudroom with a water closet, a laundry area, and access to a covered drive-in storage shed and workshop covered with ivy. The foyer opens into a traditional country kitchen with a huge breakfast/dining room, and which features hardwood flooring, wood cabinetry, a ceramic-tiled back splash, plenty of counter work space with a breakfast bar, and includes appliances.
The main level’s den has a wood-burning stove for cool weather coziness, and both this room and the adjacent family room showcase the home’s original pine flooring - which can also be found throughout much of the upper level - and in keeping with its century character, some of the original trims and baseboards can also be seen throughout the home. Most of the windows are quite large, allowing for abundant natural lighting, and this home does have a basement level - although unfinished, yet giving the home great storage space.
At the foot of the carpeted upper level staircase is the sliding door walk-out to the solarium, where the gorgeous outdoor scenery can be readily enjoyed. The upper level features four bedrooms and a modern 4-pc washroom with a skylight, built-in linen/toiletry storage, a combined bath and shower area, as well as easy care vinyl flooring that mimics the look of a painted vintage wood floor.
The second and third bedrooms are quite cozy, with the third bedroom finished with carpeting. The fourth bedroom is a later addition to the home, has a spacious sitting area, is carpeted as well, and has two walk-in closets (one is off the hallway into this room). The bright master bedroom has wonderful views of the farm and rolling hills of the countryside, and comes with two double closets.
This home is within the catchment areas of North Cavan and James Strath Public Schools, St. Alphonsus Catholic Elementary School, Crestwood Secondary School, and Holy Cross Catholic Secondary School; as well as Westmount Public School, St. Catherine Catholic Elementary School, Adam Scott Collegiate and Vocational Institute, and St. Peter Catholic Secondary School for their French Immersion programs.
Peterborough is a short 20 minute drive for shopping, restaurants, entertainment, as well as medical and professional services - while with quick access to Hwy 115, the heart of Durham Region is just 45 minutes away.
