501 MacCallum’s Lane is an amazingly unique property just minutes from the beautiful village of VanKleek Hill. 111 acres with so many opportunities for you and your family!
As the current owner says: “There is nothing like cutting down your Christmas tree each year from your own property or enjoying the fresh air and beautiful twilit skies! The best way to start your day is with an early morning coffee on the gingerbread front porch, taking in the peace and quiet.”
Read on to find out what each aspect of this property has to offer.
As you drive up the tree-lined driveway you will first see a charming century farmhouse with red brick and gingerbread porch. This home was built in approximately 1883, renovated in 1980 and has had an addition put on in the early 90’s. The exterior is solid triple brick construction and the addition has a wooden exterior. Original features include flooring, trim work, staircase and beautiful deep window sills. The home has had all the electrical and plumbing replaced and currently has 200 amp service.
Walk in the front door and immediately be greeted by the original features that fill this home with character. From the foyer, you will walk into a space that has been opened up for modern family living. An open concept living room, dining room and spacious kitchen are perfect for your family. There are new countertops in the kitchen, a sunny dining room and large living room with a WETT certified, Pacific Energy woodstove that the current owners use as the primary source of heat burning approximately 6 to 9 cords of wood per year. On the main level there is also a mudroom for family entry…so convenient when coming in from a ride or playing in the snow.
Moving upstairs via the original staircase note the gorgeous original floors. A loft area greets you that is perfect for your home office! The master bedroom is spacious and located in the addition. There is room for any bedroom furniture and the room also offers a large closet. There are two secondary bedrooms. There is also a full bathroom with second floor laundry….so rare to find in a century home.
There is a detached two car garage with extra room for storage located right next to the mudroom entrance. A covered front porch is the perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee and the side deck is a great spot for entertaining!
This barn was likely built in the 1930s using post & beam construction. It was originally used as a cattle barn and is now used as a hay barn and workshop. The workshop is heated and has loads of space for tools, work benches and more. Walking into the main area of the barn is like walking back in time…the vaulted roof is stunning! There is also a storage area that can hold equipment, tools and more.
This second “barn” was turned into stables by the current owner in 2002. There are three large box stalls, each with its own automatic watering system. The house well provides water for the barn with an extra deep well line that has never frozen. The barn is heated and there is a heated tack room. The loft serves as storage for hay which can be dropped directly down to the horses.
The Paddocks & Dressage Ring
There are two horse paddocks, each with its own shelter. There is also a central wash/grooming stall. There is a four-season hydrant providing water year round to the paddocks. The hydrant was designed in Wisconsin and will never freeze. There is also a 20 x 40 dressage ring with the fences and markers included.
The Aircraft Landing Strip & Hangar
Another amazing feature of this property is its 1500 foot runway that can land any single engine light aircraft. The runway center has been reinforced with gravel to ensure safety. The steel hangar, located beside the stables, can accomodate most light aircraft. It is currently used to store farm equipment and has also been used for large family gatherings “rain or shine”!
The “extras” on this property are endless! 111 acres with approximately 30 acres tree farmed and 11 acres of hay field. There are riding and walking trails along with snowmobile and cross country ski trails. This truly is a very special place…a horse lover’s dream, the avid equestrian’s playground, a pilot’s slice of heaven and perfect to raise a family who loves the outdoors.
Plus enjoy the village of VanKleek Hill which offers so many amenities and a wonderful community spirit. Enjoy the boutiques such as VanKleek Cottage or The Pink Bowtie. Delicious restaurants include Vert Fouchette, Blueberry Hill Bistro, The Granary Beizli and the Trillium Tea Room. There are everyday amenities such as a pharmacy, grocery stores, doctors and dentists, hardware stores and more. Schools in the area include Pleasant Corners Public School, St. Jude Catholic School and St. Gregoire Catholic Elementary School. Walk to the famous Beau’s Brewery! Access highway 417 for an hour drive to Ottawa or an hour drive to Montreal…a great spot to commute from.
