Eight exciting properties await your discovery

The Eighth Annual PEC Christmas House Tour is focused on the southeast part of the County, inviting you to explore the area where the first United Empire Loyalists, fleeing the American Revolution, landed in 1784.

Here are examples of the homes you will visit:

  • This picturesque white frame Ontario cottage, set on 20 acres with a small vineyard, has many admirers. It has been restored with great care and attention to detail by the present owners. Field stone from the property was used in one of four fireplaces. And an old barn, which fell down, lives on in repurposed ceiling beams from its floor and beams from the barn serve as fireplace mantels.
  • A lovely stone house, attached privy/smokehouse and stone outbuilding were built by one of the township’s pioneer cheese makers. Isaac Striker’s United Empire Loyalist father purchased the property in 1829 and it remained in the Striker family until purchased by the current owners in 1999. Also on the property is an 1830’s log house originally built in the Ottawa valley. The very large logs are notable. The hearth and bake oven are still used, especially on Christmas Eve.
  • An exciting new-build, comprised of three modules manufactured offsite, overlooks the waters of the cove. The modules were transported on flatbed trucks to their final destination, hoisted by a giant crane, then “buttoned” together. The home reflects the owners’ minimalist aesthetic, and love of contemporary architecture. The focus in the principal living space is on the views outside, and on bringing the light inside.
