Chateau des Cinq Pins (Chateau of the Five Pines) is a private hilltop estate located on the fringe of Baltimore, located just minutes north of the historic, lakeside town of Cobourg. This exquisite residence, with Lake Ontario views, sits atop verdant, rolling vistas that continue to inspire artists, filmmakers and musicians by the ever-changing scenes of nature's paintbrush.
Originally the Kraumanis family retreat, the architecture was based on a Latvian castle reminiscent of the owner’s ancestral homeland. Original, reclaimed pieces from local historical buildings were elegantly harmonized together when building this heirloom residence. Keeping much of the original character and antiquity intact, including the original, fieldstone fireplaces (hand-built from stone mined from the property), the circular staircase, the Captain's Walk and the Zen room, the family significantly expanded the living space into 12,455+ square feet of impeccable style and irreplaceable character, in 2006.
Three additional quarters reside within the chateau and its grounds. These spaces, separated from the main living space, can accommodate a nanny, caretaker, in-laws, adult children, visitors or tenants, with short-term or long term rental potential. The private grounds are enhanced by a concrete swimming pool, multiple outdoor seating areas, several themed gardens and a cloister walk through old pine and birch woodlands.
A extraordinary offering that suits multi-generational living and work-at-home lifestyles. Only 50 minutes from Toronto along the 401. Trinity College School is a 15 minute drive west. High speed internet service is available in the area for those working or studying at home. Additional land may be purchased to expand the total acreage.
