Situated on idyllic Ostby Road, home to renowned artists, picturesque farmhouses and pasture land, the long driveway provides time to take in the pastures on your approach to “butterhouse”. This newly built home was designed to blur the line between indoor and outdoor living. 1500 ft.² on one level, the open plan and heated concrete floor provide plenty of room to entertain without sacrificing thoughtfully appointed bedroom sanctuaries and spacious bath. Skylights and oversized windows flood the south-facing house with natural light. Want a break from the sun, a 24-foot grape arbour provides a shady retreat or lounge under the fragrant Wisteria Arbour – your choice.

A farm style kitchen and large island make cooking fun. Enjoy your creations inside at the dining table or outside at the 16-foot harvest table. Rustic beams frame the stonewalled booth too cozy to leave. After dinner, comfy linen couches draw you to the Rumford fireplace for all the ambience you can imagine. Two sets of double doors lead you onto a cement patio which holds the summer heat into the evening. Step off the patio onto a cooling lawn-perfect for bocce-bordered by garden, all framing a rustic flavoured outdoor kitchen complete with pizza oven, small bbq and a propane fire sitting area to make your search for shooting stars comfortable until late.

Given that we are a family, who, for years vacationed on Hornby before moving here full time, we are highly sensitive to your need for privacy. With that in mind, the landscaping is new and young trees are to require watering. The owners will need to access the outside/deer fenced area to water on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 2-3pm.
