$365,000. ~ The Hill House in Avondale

It will be easy to fall in love with this exceptional home tucked away on a private 9 acre hillside. It's located in Avondale, a quaint hamlet on the Minas Basin, just 12 minutes from Windsor and within 40 minutes to the city. This property is so private, most locals won't even know where it is. You turn off the paved road and wind your way up the long, tree-lined laneway, over the brook until you reach the house. Known as the "Hill House" because of its prominent perch on the side of a gentle hill . . . you can see for miles . . . long views and southern exposure surrounded by forest. The house started out as a small energy-efficient home, but an ingenious architect came up with a wonderful plan and "Hill House" was created in 2001. It was designed with Feng Shui in mind, so there are lots of interesting angles and special features. The house itself has a traditional 1.5 story appearance but after a closer look you see that it has a great deal of Asian influence both in terms of the simple, clean lines and orientation to the exterior landscaping.
