Stepping into this airy getaway, you are instantly transported by the striking lakeside view and sweeping westerly vistas that display the spectacular summer sunsets. This home evokes images of Cape Cod with a touch of Europe. The century old pines frame this view and can only be described as 'classic Muskoka'.
Prominently featured in the August 2017 issue of House & Home magazine, this sprawling lakefront home on Lake of Bays is a serene escape from the everyday world. First of all, there's the 390 feet of frontage and expansive deck that's perfect for relaxing, entertaining, catching a spectacular sunset, or if you're so inclined, bird watching.
Lake of Bays is also home to the historic Bigwin Island, an exclusive world class golf course. The island is the social centre of the lake with many events taking place and a great setting to meet and make friends. People call Lake of Bays “the quiet money". Membership can be transferred to buyer.
Then there's the cottage itself. A stunning 4-bed, 4-bath lakeside-living showstopper on 1.7 acres that offers total privacy and incredible views. The luxury builder and design team tasked with the renovation have completely captured the intended vision that bridges a modern design with natural accents, featuring custom millwork, a one-of-a-kind kitchen, and luxurious baths. The main level's exquisite great room, with a magnificent stone fireplace, has a warm and comfortable flow. A Mediterranean-style patterned tile backsplash and blue and brass accents highlight the gourmet kitchen’s stylistic plan. 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-beds, 3-baths and a lounge-style rec room with fireplace.
The dining room with its Log Cabin feel leads to the lakeside deck, offering optimal views of the glorious sunsets that are so famous in this part of the world. And because of the western exposure, they’re on full display for you and your guests. The two-storey boathouse is a perfect extension of the cottage and abuts the Canadian shield rock lining the shore, with entertainment area, roof-top terrace and breathtaking water-lined views. A renovated bunkie makes a welcoming respite for extra guests.
This luxury dream cottage, with its refined elegance, is the ideal location for those commuting from the city. It's the perfect getaway because it has it all. And isn't that what you're looking for?
