Solitude and serenity is what you will find on this 11.4 acre property. Dubbed the Katz Log House, this architecturally restored log house was designed by Mel Shakespeare of Tradition Home Designs, and strategically sits atop 6 acres of protected land on the Niagara Escarpment. When Mel Shakespeare designed this home, he brought 2 period log homes together to create an incredible 3,332 sq ft home with separate garage, boasting 4+1 bedrooms and 3.5 baths.
Originating from Kitchener, “Morning Glory” is one of the log homes that makes up the entirety of the large country kitchen. With a long island, flanked by a beautiful wood burning oven, wood beams across the ceiling and exposed log walls, the kitchen is perfect for the chef of the family. With endless counters, a large dining space, incredible amounts of storage and direct view of the sun room, the kitchen will no doubt create many memories with family and guests. Off of the kitchen, you have a very large mudroom, lined with stone flooring with access to the laundry and powder room.

The living room features a gorgeous Rumford fireplace, built with an exterior granite stone façade attributing to the gorgeous architecture of the home. The formal dining room on the other hand, features hardwood floors throughout, large bright windows, a vintage wood stove with an incredible stone surround, exposed logs along the walls, all a perfect homage to the home’s historic past.

"We can't say enough about Lisa, Andrew and their awesome team. They did such an amazing job of staging our house. We sold within one day of listing and for more than expected! If we decided to move again one day we will 100% be using the Roach family."

“The Roaches are a great team. They helped us find our forever home so quickly that we had to list our house much faster than anticipated. They were there for every step of that crazy adventure. Late night meetings, texts, visits to Lowe’s, de-cluttering and all. It was exhausting and we couldn’t have done it without their expertise and friendliness. We were very lucky to have found them!”
