Maxwell Schoolhouse

453964 Grey Road 2, Maxwell, On

Classroom days may be over, but this Grey Highlands Schoolhouse has maintained the character and integrity of the original building right down to the blackboards and lighting.

It has undergone a stunning renovation and offers open concept living with flawless white oak oiled flooring and 14’ ceilings. A spacious foyer houses the original schoolhouse door and leads to the great room. A perfect entertaining space with modern kitchen, island seating for 4 and room for a family size dining room table. A butler’s pantry is hidden from view and conveniently hides the messiness of entertaining.

The living space is a conversation piece with original blackboards and schoolhouse lighting. The girls’ and boys’ entry doors remain in place, a reminder of what was. On this level is a small den or office and 2 bedrooms. The guest bedroom has an additional blackboard, original to the house. A new addition provides a huge master suite with vaulted ceilings, ensuite bathroom and walk out to the south facing deck. Peaceful and quiet with sunshine most of the day it is a favorite place to sit.

The laundry/bathroom combination are easily accessible down the hall. There are several walk outs, the front, east facing deck is a new addition. It is sheltered from the elements and has great sunrise views.

The upper level has 3 more bedrooms and a full bathroom for a total of 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms. There is plenty of space for more beds for those special events. There is a partial basement that provides space for noisy kids to play and it has heated floors. It could be set up as a 6th bedroom if needed.

Everything is meticulously cared for from aesthetics to the mechanical. A wired in generator gives peace of mind and could come in handy on a stormy winter weekend. The property is just under 1 acre with plenty of room for fun and games and even a pool.

The entry is gated for extra security and on the property is the old barn, now a great storage place for wood and tools. Just outside of Maxwell, the schoolhouse is 20 minutes from 2 private ski clubs. Beaver Valley to the West and Devils Glen to the East. Centrally located, it is an easy drive to Collingwood and all its amenities. The buyer of this property will be very lucky to have found it!
