Winter in the city feels like it’s lasted months already, and it’s barely just begun!
The answer to the issue of feeling trapped in the urban cold-season, naturally, is to relocate to a place where snow and ice are celebrated instead of feared.
Less than a two hour’s drive from the GTA, the lakehouse — asking $4,900,000 — is nestled on a private point of land in the sheltered Lake Muskoka bay, and features more than 345 feet of breathtaking, western-exposure shoreline. Meanwhile, indoors, the property provides nearly 6,700 square-feet of living space, inclusive of six stunning bedrooms and four bathrooms.
On the main floor, the Chef’s kitchen is complete with stainless steel appliances and a walk-in pantry, while boasting an open-concept floor plan that lends itself to the adjacent Great room. There, massive windows present stunning lake views, while a two-storey stone fireplace serves as a centrepiece, bringing a sense of coziness to the otherwise massive space. The central hub of the home makes for an ideal winter hangout, where family and friends can stay warm alongside drinks and snacks. Come springtime, those same massive windows will just beg to be thrown open, to allow the lake breeze to move through the estate with ease.
Also on the main floor, one of the bedrooms — the private master — is complete with a walkout deck, a luxe ensuite, and a stone fireplace. Meanwhile, the home’s lower level is an ideal recreation space, with room for pool, shuffleboard, movie setups and more.
Outside, extensive stone patios and walkways — made from locally-sourced Muskoka granite — lead down to the waterfront, while the lower patio introduces access to the two-storey, post-and-beam boathouse. The lower level provides space for three vessels, while the upper level offers an optimal vantage-point from which to take in covetable long lake views.
