On the northern hills of the scenic Oak Ridges Moraine sits a truly spectacular heritage home that blends rich history with the ultimate in contemporary design. 42 Victoria Drive, a 19th-century Victorian statue set in sprawling grounds, is anything but cookie-cutter; any passer-by can’t help but admire its pointed gabled windows, flanked by intricate millwork, and chic charcoal slatted exterior.

A covered porch provides the perfect place to admire the sunrise over a steaming coffee, while enjoying the charms of the surrounding village.

Inside, it’s obvious that no attention to detail has been spared; the interior has been lovingly updated, with many subtle yet luxurious architectural elements that pay homage to the house’s heritage.

On entering, you are invited to hang up your coat in the warm cloakroom, equipped with a heated slate floor and practical built-in shelves. Beyond the industrial farmhouse’s rustic sliding door, the focal point immediately turns to the staircase – an architectural triumph incorporating metal and timber beams, which connects the upper and lower levels, which make up a total of 3 500 square feet of living space.

In contrast to the rich palette of the exterior, the home’s living spaces are filled with natural light, thanks to 10-foot vaulted ceilings, a light and airy aesthetic, and blond hardwood flooring. Architectural details such as coffered ceilings in the den and living room, elegant archways and structured wainscoting add a sense of quality.

The open concept living room and dining room provide both an elegant and intimate setting for family gatherings or entertaining in style. The kitchen, located at the back of the house, is a chef’s dream, with quartz countertops and a breakfast bar, white cabinets with gold fixtures, and sleek subway tile backsplashes. The space is as functional as it is beautiful, outfitted with commercial grade stainless steel appliances. West-facing windows ensure diners will enjoy a beautiful sunset in the background, while a convenient exit provides direct access to the 165-square-foot backyard.

On the spacious second floor, five bedrooms await, with three additional bathrooms including two shower rooms, each with their own unique attributes. A dream-worthy master suite is the ultimate private enclave, with a 15-foot vaulted ceiling, large windows, and a four-piece bathroom.


Located in the township of Uxbridge in Durham Region, it is the perfect escape for those seeking the peace and quiet of a rural setting, without compromising on luxury. Less than an hour’s drive from Toronto and the cottage country, you’ll love the convenience of this well-located city, which itself has a rich cultural and arts scene. Locals can spend an afternoon shopping in Uxbridge’s quaint high streets, catch a live music or comedy show in one of the many historic community halls, or jet off for an afternoon on tracks.
