Welcome to log luxury at its best! This is an opportunity to own Ontario’s very first build and resale by the world renowned Pioneer Log Homes from Williams Lake B.C. Each full log was peeled twice, scribed & notched 3 times, slicked, stained and then assembled to perfection by hand over a period of three months! It was then shipped and assembled on site at Growler Lake, Haliburton, whose residents have a strong and focused commitment to lake conservation and forest management. A grand carport greets you at this 3450 sq ft, 3 bedroom/2.5 bathroom home flanked by a detached triple-bay full log garage with an upper level 941 sq ft, 1 bedroom/1 bathroom guest suite. Sitting at the end of the road with a gated entry and abutting thousands of acres of Crown Land and lakes these 82 acres with 1,400 ft of waterfront is more than private. A hunting & fishing luxury retreat with Russian flare!
Growler Lake is approximately 124 acres, almost 2 kilometers in length can be 30 meters deep in some areas. The socially active Growler Lake Community includes about 780 acres of mixed forest divided into 27 properties. Rock faces, marshes, beaches, creeks, waterfalls, shallow and deep water entries, as well as varied elevations make this lake unique. It is a perfect destination for the angler and hunter.
The owners of this impeccable and unique property have spent years scouring for local and international artisans who’ve created one off custom furniture, cabinetry, sinks, tubs, art, chandeliers, knick-knacks, blankets, pillows, et-al which are all included in this purchase. You can’t imagine the feeling you get when surrounded by the massive log beams, the phenomenal cathedral ceilings or the captivating black granite wood fireplaces. The incredible volumes of wood and log features of this home do not overpower all of the smaller, unrepeatable and distinctive touches.
One of the most special items in this home is the custom “Original Russian Woodstove”, that can serve as such, but also a pizza/bread oven and cook top. Traditionally you’d sit on the bench side to stay warm in the cold Russian weather. The remainder of the kitchen is an eclectic mix of antique pieces, custom cabinetry and interesting décor. The granite flooring has stamped copper inlays to compliment the hand made and highly detailed copper sink.
A common theme throughout is river stone showers with log features, bored and polished whole stone sinks, copper clad windows and doors, decorative hand carved wood doors and 100+ year old wide plank flooring that is approximately 3" thick!
The main floor master bedroom looks out to the waterfront and the ensuite features a one of a kind, amazing hand built copper tub! Travelling up the oversized stairs with custom iron railing you reach the loft overlooking the great room which is chalk full of cozy furniture. The two bedrooms and 3pc washroom carry the same, and different, custom features as the rest of the home, each with it's own character and antique furniture.
With an amazing resort style circular driveway you can park under the gigantic carport to unload the car before parking it in one of the three garage bays. All of the atvs, skidoos, etc can be stored in the "drive-up" loft above the garage.
At the end of the open, cleared and breezy yard is an interesting point of land that sits between two docks for a choice of unique vibes and views. Sun tan or swim or fish off the docks. Go boating, kayaking or canoeing. It’s all a matter of mood. Kids can sing songs by the bon-fire sized fire pit in the yard while the parents grab a soft seat around the wood fireplace under the covered side porch. There are many interior and exterior spots to accommodate several different activities at once. A true family gathering home! Don't worry, the bears in the yard are just amazing sculptures!
