May 12,2022 | Buying

f you have been dreaming of living in the country and envisioned having a generous amount of land, this red brick home with a charming covered front porch in Puslinch is worth a visit.


4674 Watson Road South is a 5-bedroom, 2-bathroom home that is over 2,500 sq. ft. in size. Built in the early 1900s, the main floor has a nice open flow. The kitchen is bright and sunny, with large windows and an eat-in nook. A spacious mudroom will keep all of your belongings organized and even offers views of the property. On this level there is also a large bedroom with an enormous walk-in closet.



Upstairs you’ll find four more good-sized bedrooms. The top floor is a newly renovated loft, which adds even more family living space.


Many recent improvements have been made, including new windows and doors throughout the house, a new roof for both the home and the barn, a new wood stove, new wiring and a new well on the property.


The home has a lot to offer, including the impressive lot size of just over two acres. There is a small barn that is equipped with hydro and water, and a detached garage that can accommodate four cars.


The surrounding area is peaceful, with beautiful views. With this home you get all of the comfort and ease of country living—not to mention the utmost in privacy—yet you are just minutes from the south end of Guelph where you’ll find every shop, service and amenity. You can relax and enjoy the scenic landscapes at home, while also having easy access to the 401, Cambridge, Guelph, Milton and beyond.

Puslinch Township is located in south-central Ontario in Wellington County; it surrounds the south end of Guelph. The main industries here are agriculture, spring water bottling and aggregate mining. According to Statistics Canada’s latest census, the population is just shy of 8,000.

“This is a peaceful, beautiful property,” says REALTOR® Nick FitzGibbon. “It’s a spacious home with a warm and cozy feeling. You have country views and get to enjoy the sounds of nature.”

A home like this would be really well suited for a big family that has children and pets. Says the agent, “With such private country living, it’s a wonderful place to raise a family.” It could work equally well for a contractor who is looking to run his own small business.
