One for the lifer list.
Perched privately on the edge of paradise, 1121 Osborne Point Road, with 9 glorious acres on renowned Lake of Bays, is equal parts fascination and function.
A jaw-dropping marvel of engineering and design, this 5-bedroom and 3.5 bath residence is the ideal summering grounds for the family seeking quality, privacy, and exquisite design. Only your parked cars remind you of a busier life. Fly into Dwight in under 10 minutes or bee line to Huntsville in 15. Wonderful neighbours walk dogs and greet you at the roadside.
The magnet of this property is the boathouse. With its view of Wee Island, the boathouse ends your forage for stillness and accessible convenience. With high floors summer life unfolds at the water’s edge. Wired for fun and games (and, if necessary, the occasional email) the boathouse provides spectacular sound, internet, and amazing lighting. (But if medals are being handed out give the gold to the night-time up-lit hemlocks…so dreamy!) The heart and soul of daily life at 1121, this is a boathouse unlike any other.
Family memories incubate at 1121. The calm water of Walker's Bay is magical for adults and children alike. A fully retractable waterside awning keeps any harmful rays in check and a gently angled ladder makes the water accessible for all or leave your troubles at the surface as you dive into 25 feet of Lake of Bays clarity.
The James Ireland cottage design mates perfectly with the local environment: guests can often be found lingering at the ‘window wall’ lost in thought and mesmerized by mother nature. The smart architecture is conducive to experiencing the glories of Muskoka: the serenity of water, the security and warmth of granite, the call of mixed forests, and the dazzle of summer sun - each available from every perch.
With whisper-silent geothermal heating and cooling you’ll spend just pennies a day to live in all-season comfort while a 400 ft drilled well delivers the freshest H20. Be ready to create a masterpiece at the top-of-the-line Miele steam oven or Wolff range with induction cook top. And after dinner? Perhaps a hot tub under the stars? A gathering at the granite firepit? Or linger beside the Stuv fireplace. Whatever calls…let your senses be your guide.
Osborne Point Road is where function informs form, dreams hatch, and guests flock. Complete with main cottage, original Viceroy cottage/Bunkie, smart garage, engineered boathouse, and over 600 feet of discreet water frontage - you’ve found the family compound that goes beyond your wish list.
The search for a unique Muskoka family experience is complete.
Pack up, fly north and land at 1121 Osborne Point Road.
