Stunning winery and luxury home in the heart of Prince Edward County on the market

Looking to live the dream? A rare two-storey winery in the heart of Prince Edward County’s Wine Country is on the market. The award-winning Hillier Creek Estates Winery — adorned with a restored historic barn and a custom home — is situated on a sprawling 48 acres of land at 46 Stapleton Road, only 20 minutes from a major provincial Park and 2 hours from Toronto.

The winery was built in 2005 and renovated in 2010, but its origins date back to the early 19th century — the land was once granted to Dr. James Latham, the first known person to have practiced inoculation for smallpox in Canada.

The owners are looking to retire, so winemaking/farming equipment and chattel are also for sale with this charming property.

The estate fronts onto Loyalist Parkway (King’s Highway 33), which is one of the County’s sought-after winery and beach routes.  The home has a short-term accommodation license that can generate approximately $1,000 in revenue per night and a liquor license for 205 people.

The restored 1860 barn features a wet bar, a retail store, a wedding/event venue that can accommodate 100+ guests, as well as a production facility. With 54 parking spaces, guests can arrive quite comfortably.

The home features a stone, vinyl-siding exterior finish, towering cathedral ceilings, and a wrap-around deck.

It has its own dreamy living quarters as well as separate staff quarters and offices.

The main level of the house boasts a spacious kitchen adorned with cherrywood cabinets and Brazilian soapstone countertops.

Guests can also warm up by the massive fireplace in the living room.

Outside, enjoy the patio with pizza from the wood-fired oven…or relax and enjoy the beauty of the gardens, scenic landscape, creek, and wildlife.

Prince Edward County is a much-coveted area as it’s home to over 40 wineries, Sandbanks Provincial Park, and tons of restaurants. The area is not very suitable for cycling (whether for commuting or recreational purposes) but it is great for driving, with excellent access to freeways and major arteries. The County has more of a calm, serene atmosphere, with more than 40 per cent of the population ranging from the ages of 50 to 79.

46 Stapleton Road is listed for $3,988,000 with Royal Lepage Proalliance Realty. Annual property taxes are $21,125.80.
