Avondale Hills Farmhouse was built in the late 1800s from local stones. It sits on top of rolling hills next to a majestic Red Barn. It overlooks a winding creek, pastures and a spring fed pond. The essence of traditional farming, grazing cattle, goats, pedigree rabbits and foraging chickens meet a very modern hydroponic leafy green machine with an output of the most delicious greens!
Inside the farmhouse you will find an Entertainment room with a 3D theater projector. Recline and relax in the lush leather seats or pile on a gigantic beanbag! Watch a movie or engage in a 4 player Nintendo Switch game split across a 10 foot screen. If relaxing and reading a book or checking your email by the fire over a hot drink, then step into the café with individual tables and a full self serve coffee – tea bar. For large family gatherings or a company retreat step into the Great Room. The Great Room has a 12 foot table with ample seating for up to 14 adults. We’ve included bench seating to pile in the kids and teens. Cozy up and enjoy several games stacked in the drawers next to another gas fireplace.

Life is Better on the Farm – It’s peaceful and beautiful. There is a strong sense of serenity here. When you are here your senses will awaken and you might hear the harmonious banter of a baahing goat, a mooing cow or a clucking chicken. You’re no longer in the city or a suburan surrounding. You’re on a farm. It’s nothing like home and will captivate you and change everything lending to an experience like no other.
When reconstructing the old farmhouse we wanted to make sure to save some of the historical features of the house like original flooring on the second floor. Original staircase and exposed stone walls. We also wanted to include the most earth friendly accommodation. The house is heated and cooled with Geothermal systems underground. We have added 2 robust on-demand gas water heaters, gas cooking, gas dryer and fireplaces. We use all LED lighting and strive to leave the smallest carbon footprint on our precious mother earth.
Goats at the Goat Playground, What else? Last fall this was the view from the front porch. The Goats have been helpful in several of our fields clearing weeds and thorny bushes out of our grazing fields. The Goats also provide the Farmers and other farm animals with Milk. Farmer make Goat and Lavender infused soap, or sometimes cheese. They even made Goat Milk Lavender Honey ice cream and freeze-dried it for a super treat on the road. So many things can come from a farm!
