100+ yrs - still looking good! User friendly in every way. Perfect for cycling couples and/or explorer friends looking for a relaxing swim in a saltwater pool at the end of a day wandering. ALERTS: through the non-rental winter months, this home has live-in cats. While cleaning of the entire house and linens is done before rental, people with extreme allergies may find this home not suitable.

Propane BBQ, fenced safe area off driveway for bikes, big front porch for early coffee readers on a quiet residential street.

I live in the County full time. It was a clear choice after 'bigger city' living - and I happily share this house and experience with those who are looking for an experience 'away' that combines some choice in a simpler setting.

'Simply H..' - simply Happy, simply Heaven, simply Hopeful. This is a well cared for and maintained aged home in a great location (central for the County area) with many conveniences big and small provided. Perfect? No. But many huge attractors to make a stay enjoyable. Whether driving, cycling or walking, the County itself is an area of history - a small hidden jewel for personal exploration and discovery.
At the edge of Picton, this property is peaceful and has the iconic front porch for a sit. Far enough off the beaten track to feel like a home, close enough to walk to town. Weather permitting, the salt water pool is a quiet oasis - to start or end a day with a refreshing and cooling swim.
Conveniently located - walking distance to downtown, and central to all the County has to offer in market gardens, vineyards, beaches, other towns, natural hiking and walking areas.
