At the water’s edge, along 390 feet of shoreline, this landmark boathouse and expansive dock is cantilevered out from the rocky face of the Canadian Shield. As you wind your way up through the trees to this welcoming country home, you are treated to stunning westerly vistas and sunsets of this historic Muskoka lake.
Entering the 4-bed, 4-bath cottage, you’re struck by the impeccable design that finds the perfect balance between raw natural beauty, with the log-lined Muskoka room and river rock fireplace, and modern eclectic with custom millwork, luxurious baths and a one-of-a-kind gourmet kitchen. Prominently featured in the August 2017 issue of House & Home magazine, this property is definitely a study in contrast: clean, white lines inside are set against the most vibrant reds, purples and oranges of the sunset; brass accents and the Mediterranean-inspired tile backsplash in the kitchen make way for incredible forest views through the large windows beyond. You feel at home in the most private forest escape, while being simultaneously immersed in culture and design excellence.
The master bedroom wing has its own private balcony, steam shower ensuite and laundry room. A second laundry room is located on the lower level, along with 3 bedrooms, 3 baths and a lounge-style recreation room. To top it off, a renovated bunkie makes a welcoming respite for extra guests.
This incredible property is definitely not for the faint of heart, perched atop a cliff, overlooking the rugged landscape and beautiful Lake of Bays. But the adventurous are rewarded with a private getaway of refined luxury and natural beauty unlike any other.
