Situated on 103 acres in the village of Shedden, this country estate blends modern design and features with old-world materials and craftsmanship. Conveniently located near highway 401 between Detroit and Toronto, Millshire offers easy access to world-class amenities without sacrificing the tranquility and privacy of a country property. Approximately 5 acres around the main house and other buildings has been cleared, with an adjacent 90+ acres of workable farm land and 5 acres of unspoiled forested brush for exploring. Day-to-day shopping and services are short drive away in nearby London and St. Thomas.
Access to the manicured grounds is afforded through a classic wrought iron access-controlled gate. After travelling the gently winding private drive to the 9,100+ sq. ft. main house, you will be welcomed by a spectacular light-filled foyer, complete with classic wood accents and curved staircases. With large principal rooms afforded beautiful views of the property and abundant natural light, the main floor is both elegant and practical, equally suited to the rigours of everyday living and entertaining. In addition to the large gourmet kitchen with an informal breakfast nook and adjoining family room, you’ll also find a large dining room and sunken formal living room that are perfect for entertaining. When the party heads outside, family and friends can access a spectacular deck (rebuilt in 2018) with views of, and access to a hot tub and the property and grounds below. When quiet time is on order, you can retreat to the beautiful sunroom or work in the dedicated office, which features one of the three fireplaces on the main level.
The upper floor offers a master suite with an adjoining luxurious ensuite, complete with two-sided fireplace, skylights, and a huge soaker tub. As a bonus, the master also features a balcony constructed out of Brazilian Ipe wood that is both stunning and functional. All bedrooms feature walk-in closets and ensuite privileges, plus access to a dedicated gym with a reinforced floor to handle all of your equipment. Heading downstairs to the lower level, you’ll find an entertainer’s paradise with room for a media centre, games room, plus a dedicated office, hobby room, and workshop. From the walkout on the lower level to the backyard oasis, your family and guests can easily enjoy everything the grounds have to offer, including the inground pool, stone patio, and artfully constructed stone water effects and landscaped gardens with a dedicated fireplace retreat for nights spent around the campfire.
Designed with the hobbyist in mind, in addition to the attached four car garage this property also adds a dedicated workshop building with its own heating and cooling, plus a hydraulic lift. With four bays total, one of the bays is oversized and can accommodate a RV, boat, or other large vehicle. The workshop also has a gardener’s suite on the upper level and its own full washroom. There is a separate horse barn with four paddocks, plus a large 50 x 100 ft. drive shed to store equipment. The main house has dual furnaces and air conditioners, and the property is protected with a backup generator.
Elegant but functional. Private but close to everything. Pick up the pen and make Millshire Manor the next chapter of your story.
