This $6 million Canton farmhouse comes with its own ‘party barn’

Researchers suggest humans have 30 years to double our food supply, and a local university said robots will help get the job done.

From the one-of-a-kind backyard “party barn” to the enormous 9,100 square-foot farmhouse, Canton’s latest luxury listing is a unique opportunity for any with $6 million to spare. Priced at $5,994,900, the property at 501 Old Lathemtown Road features four bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, 10 acres of land, an in-ground pool, four car garage and a separate guest house.

Known locally as October Farm, the estate is equipped to comfort and entertain in equal parts.

Upon approaching the home, visitors are met with a beautiful vision of farmhouse living.

“With upscale design and custom construction, October Farm offers the ultimate luxury farmhouse experience just a toe outside of Milton, blending traditional and modern elements to create a one-of-a-kind Southern Living-worthy setting,” the listing said. “Set on 10+/- fully fenced (with four-board and wire fencing) acres, the white-columned rocking chair front porch bookended by swings is the perfect place to read or simply take in the view.”

Once inside, the home’s expert design and stylish personality are in full force.

“Enter the front door to discover a spacious four-bedroom, four- and one-half-bathroom main house built by Smith and Kennedy featuring two tankless water heaters, three wood-burning gas-starter fireplaces, 12′ ceilings, old Chicago brick accents and white oak hardwood floors throughout, along with an oversized primary suite on the main level,” the listing said. “The gorgeous light-filled bourbon/sitting room to the left is nothing if not gracious and the dining area to the right, designed in farmhouse style with a French twist, is banquet-sized.

“Locate the five-foot-wide hardwood staircase to the upper level just past the dining area and proceed to the fireside great room with exposed beams, a brick accent wall and open views to the designer kitchen. With a Lacanche range, a True refrigerator/freezer and a True full-size beverage center, an oversized island with seating, fresh concrete Caesarstone countertops, an ice machine, a coffee bar and custom inset cabinets, cabinets made from distressed barn wood painted a soft white and white appliances with gold accents, the kitchen is built for entertaining. The sunken sun-drenched breakfast room features exposed beams, a vaulted ceiling and a herringbone brick accent floor.

Just out back, the party barn awaits.

“The level backyard and manicured grounds feature a main-level walkout 16′ by 48′ inground saltwater pool, a regulation-size pickle ball court and a sprawling party barn perfect for large gatherings (featuring a dance floor, a catering kitchen, rustic exposed beams, a stacked stone fireplace and a custom bourbon display bar),” the listing said. “The property also provides extensive landscape lighting and a full integrated sound system for the main house, the pool, the party barn and all porch areas, a darling custom-built self-watering and feeding chicken coop and public/well water access for property irrigation and watering the animals.”
