Sometimes, a place just sells itself; there’s no need to convince potential buyers of a property’s value when the home genuinely has it all. Standing tall on Lake Rosseau and offering all you could ever ask for, It’s a Wonderful Life is one of these listings.
Across the property, seven bedrooms plus six bathrooms — all featuring high-end finishes — beckon for the whole family to get comfortable and to invite their friends, too. The main floor master bedroom enters into a luxury home-spa bathroom, while downstairs, a home theatre, chef’s kitchen, and private wine cellar await.
Those who prefer to work up a sweat outside the sauna can do so in the indoor gym, after which they’ll be invited to go jump in the lake. But only to cool off, of course.
As you make your way down to the water, you’ll be inclined to stop at the massive, outdoor kitchen. Equipped with a covered roof, bar, fridge, warming oven, and large BBQ with separate searing grill, burners, and warming oven, the setup is picture-perfect for a fish fry, burger night, or more upscale seafood pasta dinner. Leading down the lot are extensive granite stairs, all surrounded by meticulous landscaping. A jaunt off the path takes you to the two-car garage, where a dedicated gas bar makes refilling the ATV or snowmobile easy.
Down by the water stands a two-storey, three-slip boathouse, which features upper accommodations and an oversized boat dock and sundeck; when it comes to space for entertaining, lounging, and living it up, it genuinely feels like there’s no end. Other stand-out features the property boasts include a granite fire-pit area near the shore, a private fenced-in volleyball court, and little boat traffic thanks to the quiet location and large lake expanses.
Speaking of the lake, we’d be remiss not to mention the opportunities to catch incredible sunrises, and all-day-long panoramic views of Lake Rosseau this place provides. Location-wise, the listing rests in the heart of Muskoka, with Minett, Rosseau, Port Sandfield, and Port Carling all nearby. Also close is the JW Marriot, where additional dining options, corporate retreats, special events, and the option of hosting overflow guests are all available.
