Welcome to 9393 Turk Road, a sprawling 10 acre property situated within the historic village of Baltimore - the oldest community in Hamilton Township, Northumberland County.
In addition to the gorgeous four bedroom home, this property features perennial gardens surrounding the house, an in-ground watering system, and exterior lighting; tiered armour stone steps to an updated glass-paneled front entry door; invisible fencing (a bonus for pet owners); three patios with east-, southwest-, and north-facing exposures; a fire pit in the side garden; and a split driveway to the front of the home with a parking pad, the other drive leading to a double car garage complete with an automatic garage door opener and remotes.
There is also a sauna house and a hot tub; a garden shed; a barn that can house five horses and with a corral graded for dressage; walking trails throughout the forested areas; as well as views of the surrounding fields and ravines, and of Lake Ontario to the south.
According an article written by Hamilton Township’s local historian Tom Cruikshank in September 2019, this property incorporates the only “visible” log house in the Township. Built circa the mid 1850s, the log house’s original site was in Shawville, Québec, and was relocated and reconstructed at 9393 Turk Road in 1975 by the then owners. Some interior walls have been removed for a more open concept design, but the exterior walls remain much the same as when the house was first built - and over the years, new modern additions to the home have expanded on the original footprint of the log house, without overshadowing it.
The entire home is exceptionally bright - a multitude of windows with exposures on every side allow for an abundance of natural lighting, as well as exceptional outdoor views of the greenery that surrounds the property.
The log house section features the main level living room, and still showcases the original wood flooring, log walls, wood trims, and beamed ceiling. A wood-burning Rumford fireplace faced with floor-to-ceiling marble adds contemporary flair and coziness, while the room is softly lit with track lighting. Off this room is the sunroom addition, which has a propane fireplace, cozy Berber broadloom, and three walls of windows - two which are sliding door walk-outs onto backyard patio areas. To the log house’s upper level is a carpeted staircase, and this level also features the original wood flooring, log walls in the landing and main washroom, and wood trims. The two bedrooms in this section have board and batten finishes, and the larger of these two rooms has a walk-in closet characteristic of the era the home was built in. The 4-pc washroom is exceptionally charming, featuring a clawfoot bathtub and a pedestal sink, as well as the more modern convenience of a walk-in acrylic shower area. Above the sunroom addition, a third bedroom was added, and this room (which is a wonderful guest suite or a second master bedroom) has Berber broadloom, a nicely sized closet, as well as a 3-pc washroom with wood flooring, a pedestal sink, and a corner glass shower.
A later addition to the home, the dining room has a vaulted beamed ceiling with track lighting, and the wall of windows on its north and south sides have sliding doors for access to the front and back yards. This room, as well as the kitchen area and the reception space off the tiled main front foyer, are finished with hardwood floors - and just off the reception area is a powder room and a glass-paneled walk-out to the back yard.
In 2006, the most recent addition to the home was realized - the open concept family room and kitchen.
The family room has a contemporary propane fireplace, while the incredible work space of the kitchen showcases stone countertops, with walls of windows above the counters; pot lighting; a huge island with a vegetable sink, wine fridge, and breakfast seating; as well as an extra-deep main sink. Appliances include a propane range with five burners, a grill, and two ovens; a built-in microwave; two dishwashers; and large two-door fridge.
Below this addition is the double car garage, with its access to the basement laundry area and storage rooms - and above the kitchen is the master suite.
Just like the property, the master suite enjoys amazing privacy, and walls of southwest-facing windows allow for views of the spectacular outdoor greenery. Its 3-pc washroom showcases a tumbled marble tiled floor and walk-in shower, as well as a contemporary vanity with a stone counter and tumbled marble back splash. Separate from the bedroom is a spacious office area, while the bedroom features a large walk-in closet/dressing area. The private space also features Berber broadloom and pot lighting, as well as a storage closet just off the staircase’s mid-landing.
Other important features of the home include a new large septic field; electrical panels updated within the last 10 years (all ceiling electrical light fixtures are included with the home); an alarm system; air conditioning in the renovated addition; a central vacuum system; two furnaces; as well as a spacious dry basement with a laundry room and an abundance of storage.
This home is within the catchment areas of Camborne Public School, Dale Road Senior Public School, and St. Joseph Catholic Elementary School; as well as C. R. Gummow Public School, St. Michael Catholic Elementary School, Cobourg Collegiate Institute, and St. Mary Catholic Secondary School for their French Immersion programs.
A short eight minute drive into the village of Baltimore for its recreation centre and convenience store - downtown Cobourg is a 17 minute drive, and the town also has a hospital, numerous shopping plazas, as well as a variety of dining establishments and entertainment venues - while access to Hwy 401 for commuters is just 11 minutes away.
