Mysterious Objekts: An 1840s Farmhouse (and Antiques Shop) in Ontario

Becoming a member of the parthenon of our favourite houses-as-antiques-shops (see: Nomibis Les Pénates Reims) is Objekts, housed in an 1840s farmhouse in Breslau, Ontario.

“On a chilly February early morning in 2021, I went to invest in antiques in this farmhouse,” states proprietor—and homeowner—Atta Gaffar. “I am a software package engineer by profession, but antiques have been my passion for the final 10 decades. I fell in really like with the plaster partitions peeking powering the ripping wallpaper and the cathedral ceiling of the stone setting up.” By the time he pulled out of the driveway, he suggests, “I was contacting my real estate agent for advise on obtaining this house.”

Atta and his wife, Alia Javaid, determined to acquire the farmhouse’s 5 buildings—barn, stone barn, property, summer season kitchen area, and root cellar—as their household as properly as a area to display and market antiques. “It could not have been a much better choice because it enormously helped us and our four daughters all through the pandemic,” Atta suggests. “Later that year, I misplaced my total-time job. I targeted on the farmhouse and antiques organization for a 12 months to help our spouse and children.”

Each and every of the constructions is open—by appointment—for browsing Atta’s previous, occasionally odd, at times “mysterious” finds in atmospheric surrounds. “All the properties are total of treasures,” he suggests.

Join us for a peek within.
