Once in a while, a very special offering comes along. Springpark, near Belfountain, is such a place. Down a long private drive is this restored century stone home with associated guest house and pool. The site enjoys long views, meandering stone walls, mature landscaping and a setting which reminds one of the English countryside.
Springpark was crafted of local stone by early pioneers to the area in the 19th Century. The old stone barn foundation even remains in the garden on the north side of the property. Mature trees surround the property and all neighbours are large acreage country properties which offers Springpark total privacy.
The home is a perfect retreat property which is convenient to the Caledon Ski Club, Devil’s Pulpit golf course, area riding establishments, and hiking trails.
The Century Stone Home
The original stone home has been adapted to today’s living style into a comfortable home with a modernist living room addition with massive windows and heated stone floors, a gleaming kitchen and Muskoka Room. Springpark is a perfect couple’s home.
The master suite is on the second floor with exposed beams and a walk-in closet and 3 piece bath. The main floor of the home has a “wee” guest room and 4 piece bath. The remarkable attraction of the home is how well the floor plan functions with the new living room and kitchen plus the Muskoka Room & original dining room. All rooms have lovely views and all principal rooms open to the rambling stone patio or gardens which surround the home. The dining room with plaster walls retains its original charm with wideboard floors & stone fireplace.
The large 3-season Muskoka Room with woodstove, pine floors and beamed ceiling was added to the west of the original stone home and is well integrated into the landscaping and floorplan.
The lower level of the home has a large wine room, laundry and full height storage room.
The Springpark Lounge
The recent history of Springpark takes an interesting twist in the form of the guest house which was brought to the property. The owner’s grandfather started an exceptional stable of show horses in the 1930s and he built himself a lounge on the original farm to entertain friends and family. This gentleman’s lounge was moved in the 1950s to the “new farm” in Brampton. Time marched on and the “new farm” was eventually sold, but the owners decided to move the Lounge again. With meticulous care, the building was taken apart, numbered and then reconstructed on today’s location and is now used as a wonderful guest house and entertaining space. The historic photos show the lounge looks much the same today as it did over 80 years ago!
The lounge has a large open concept living space/bedroom, wet bar, 2 closets and 3 piece bathroom plus a 2-car garage below.
