Absolutely breathtaking, designer one-of-a-kind waterfront permanent home or idyllic retreat, overlooking magnificent Georgian Bay, lovingly custom-built on a stunning property, and only a 3 hour easy drive from the GTA, K-W or Barrie. A multitude of natural materials from around the globe have been skillfully incorporated into this brand-new masterpiece, harkening the iconic limestone and white pines of the Bruce Peninsula, while pampering the homeowners with luxurious amenities and inviting conveniences throughout the three-bedroom, three-bath, 2300 square foot bungalow with walk-out showpiece near sought-after Lion’s Heads in the Northern Bruce Peninsula. Clean, architectural lines paired with a bright, airy feel make this home truly spectacular.
Key exterior features of this gem include clear red cedar siding from British Columbia, granite accents, and an upscale, metal roof ensuring years of carefree, low-maintenance peace of mind. The property has the necessary drilled well, new septic system, parking for four vehicles, and rustic landscaping for easy living.
A distinctive imported wood and glass front door invites you inside. Triple-pane, thermal, custom windows and sliding doors, imported from Germany, grace virtually every wall in this meticulously-finished home, offering up a superb view of this section of the rugged Niagara Escarpment.
Canadian made Cabico maple cabinetry in the kitchen pairs with a very large centre island, complete with seating for three. A legendary Wolf range, Vent-a-hood range hood, and extra- large apron-front stainless sink make the professional-grade kitchen a dream for the aspiring chef. High-end, Italian-imported statuario marble countertops are featured in both the appealing kitchen and the bright, main-floor laundry room. Complimentary Italian porcelain tiles grace both the backsplash and the entrance flooring, which has been laid in a striking herringbone pattern, partnered with 100-year-old extra thick, extra wide and extra long reclaimed hemlock flooring. In-floor radiant heating ensures the porcelain floors will remain cozy in all seasons. Austrian-made, modern, industrial-look hot water radiators allow for additional heating in the central main-floor rooms.
The open-concept kitchen has a fantastic view of the bay from the double row of windows set into 13’ ceilings facing the waterfront. The open, airy kitchen balances the cozy conversation area nestled in front of the quartz-surround linear-gas fireplace. A huge onyx slab from Italy, mounted over the fireplace, creates a focal point for the interior space, presenting a statement art piece, simply extracted from nature.
A chic, modern stipple finish has been used on the interior walls, providing a cohesive look throughout the home. Harmony is further accentuated with the imported wood and glass interior doors. Three inviting bedrooms, each with its own unique and well-appointed ensuite, summon a peaceful retreat, all with magnificent views of the water and pines. The bedrooms reflect a creative use of natural cork, cedar, porcelain tiles, glass and upscale fixtures -- including wall-mounted toilets and bidets from Europe -- to achieve a soothing oasis.
The great room, wet bar, and master bedroom with ensuite, are on the lower level, reached via an extraordinary wood, aluminum and glass staircase, complete with a hand-crafted oxidized copper hand rail and balusters. The great room comfort is enhanced with an electric fireplace and in-floor radiant heating under the large, Italian porcelain tiles. The master ensuite includes an impressive 60” limestone double vanity.
Extending the indoor ambiance to the large wrap-around deck has been achieved with the use of large 24” square, non-slip porcelain pavers and a thick glass railing, allowing for an unobstructed, panoramic view of your own, private limestone shoreline below.
If you can tear yourself away from the lovely oasis of this home, there are numerous year- round activities to enjoy near this property: kayak or canoe in the bay, fish for trout or salmon, hike one of the most beautiful sections of the famous Bruce Trail, explore the numerous, quaint places to shop and dine between Lion’s Head and Tobermory, even cross-country ski or snow shoe on an invigorating, sunny winter day.
