Property Info - RUSKVIEW/MULMUR HILLS
This absolutely stunning and spectacular view property is known as Ruskview, named after the original family homesteaders - the Rusks - and, naturally, attached to their name, the incredible “view” to become Ruskview. Ruskview was a small farming community in Dufferin County, first settled in 1848. Originally known as Black Bank, its name was later changed to Ruskview in 1883. Although Ruskview was small, it managed to offer a few services, such as a general store and blacksmith. A sawmill and lumber yard were opened in the late 1890’s. There was also a one-room school house and an Orange Town Hall.
DESCRIPTION-Urban loft living in the country
The original Ruskview school house was the only building to remain standing. The school house was later enlarged and extensively renovated/designed by an artist/photographer transforming it into an amazing, beautiful, classical urban-style loft with 30 foot ceilings. The loft was designed with space and light as its main focus and feature, creating an incredible ambiance of big, wide open spaces, bathed with natural north/south light spilling through 32ft x 8ft bank of south facing windows which also act as passive solar heating. This custom, spacious, uniquely designed loft is for the creative soul, and it is built to last. It has a large, modern, open kitchen; grand, open, living and dining room; and, beautiful red oak hardwood floors throughout. A beautiful, large second-floor open master bedroom has a huge ensuite bathroom, and there are two additional cool, loft style bedrooms. It includes a big, full 8ft high, finished family room and, for the romantic photographer, a professional functioning darkroom.
