Welcome to Oliphant
Oliphant is located on the west side of The Bruce Peninsula; Oliphant is a small hamlet nestled amongst the Fishing Islands of Lake Huron. Cars travel a little slower, people are a little happier, it’s a place to create memories–it’s a place where time stood still.
Regardless of the season, there’s always something to do. During the summer, the lazy days of summer can be spent swimming, fishing or just relaxing. In the winter, there are an abundance of activities; there are cross country ski trails and snowmobile trails close by or you can be adventurous and hike, snowshoe or ski across the frozen lake to explore the icebergs. And regardless of the time of year they’re always the fabulous sunsets.
This is what the Sellers have to say when asked what they loved about the area:
“The region will surprise you with the quality and spectrum of professional health services and facilities that are easily within your reach.”
“It’s easy to say that a lot of fun can be had just 10 minutes away from the house. A walk to a local beach, a drive to Sauble Beach or a drive to Wiarton and the deep fishing/boating waters of Colpoy’s Bay.”
This Oliphant property offers not just a home but a lifestyle.
When you pull up the driveway you will notice the low maintenance garden at the front of the home and this is a theme that follows throughout the exterior of the property. Along the sides are stone walkways, raised rock gardens and the backyard is partially fenced. The yard itself appears to be much larger than it actually is as it is adjacent to a green space that provides much shade and lovely trees which can all be enjoyed from the back of the home, on the private wraparound deck or the three season room—both invite comfort and relaxation.
The home has a generous living space, you’ll enjoy it’s perfect setting for relaxing and entertaining. The large family room, with is gas stove, is the Heart of this Dwelling with most the the living spaces branching off of it. The kitchen is well laid out with a window view to the road a view over the peninsula back into the family room and access to the dining area. The open concept dining room/living room flows nicely to the back deck through garden doors; regardless of the season there is always room to host large or small gatherings.
The master bedroom is off the back of the family room and it has everything one would desire: a walk-in closet, an onsite bathroom with jet tub and a private sun room.
Also off the Heart of the Dwelling (the Living Room) there is the front foyer with the laundry facilities and utility room; there is a hallway to the attached double car garage and the second main level bedroom that is current being used as a two person office.
The library, also off the Living room, is a nice quiet spot and leads to the powder room, the Art Studio and to one of the two accesses to the upper level.
The current “Art Studio” is a fabulously renovated room with a gas stove and a garage door that has a full size screen insert for summer to welcome warm breezes. This room is limited only by your imagination.
With two accesses, either stair cases will take you to what is currently being used as a “Guest Suite” but this area also has unlimited potential: currently a bedroom & sitting area, it could be one big bedroom, it could be divided into two bedrooms or it could simply be a living room away from the main floor. Lots of storage, 3 pc bath and balcony off the back.
The bottom line: this unique home is better appreciated if seen.
I live here, work here and play here full-time, year round.
