Nestled on six breathtaking acres in the heart of South Gillies, this immaculate and very spacious residence and heritage building was originally the community's schoolhouse and then municipal offices. Now this exceptional country home showcases a generous 3,600 square feet of immaculate living space, all on the main floor and with a soaring 10-foot ceiling, featuring large picture windows that frame impressive nature views, an open-concept living room, dining room and kitchen, four bedrooms, and more.

A wood-burning fireplace serves as a centrepiece in the open-concept living room, formal dining room and eat-in kitchen, which also feature large picture windows that face south and bring in plenty of warm sunlight throughout the day. In addition, the living room conveniently also has a propane fireplace, for quickly providing some extra heat and ambiance. The cabinets in the kitchen are gorgeous black ash that was sourced locally, adding to this home's character and heritage appeal.

The home has four large bedrooms, all with large picture windows, along with two updated bathrooms. The primary bedroom and second bedroom each has two closets.

In addition, there is a large room that is currently used as a hobby room. It could be used as a family room, rec room, den, hobby studio, work room or as something else. The home also has a main-floor laundry.

The basement is unfinished and offers an abundance of storage.

The home has a newer maintenance-free metal roof, as well as some new windows, and is handicap accessible.

Plenty of space exists on the property to build a dream garage and other out-buildings. There is a wood-storage shelter and wood is included.

The rural location is in the heart of South Gillies, a 30-minute drive from Thunder Bay and city amenities.
