The foyer is finished with light coloured wide board floors, beamed ceiling and exposed log walls. A well placed powder room and guest coat closets are nearby.
The great room is reminiscent of the classic lodges of the Canadian west or Adirondacks. The massive windows, beams, and 2-storey stone fireplace make this room stand out. The views and natural light are sensational.
The large kitchen is open to the great room and breakfast room. The kitchen is finished to the highest calibre. The solid cabinetry woodwork is top notch and the large centre island offers ample seating in addition to the breakfast area. The kitchen has Subzero refrigerator, Wolf six-burner gas stove, Miele dishwasher plus built-in microwave. Alongside the kitchen is a large pantry/mudroom offering additional storage. The architect placed the kitchen in the perfect place in the floorplan as it captures the morning light, has views over the front gardens and is open to the main eating and living spaces of the home.
Alongside the kitchen’s breakfast bar is a large breakfast room which opens onto the main glass-panelled deck. The deck is spacious enough to comfortably accommodate 12-20 people with large outdoor sofas, tables and chairs plus a barbeque.
The original home was expanded and now includes a sun room with superb views over the property. The large picture window makes this room a perfect place to relax and enjoy your newspaper or favorite book. Large format slate floors and exposed log walls are in-keeping with the home’s elegant design. Heated floors.
The expansive dining room is impressive! The dining room can accommodate a dozen or more people and opens onto a covered Ipe deck with hidden retractable screens and glass panels offering clear views over the property.
In addition to adding the den to the home the owners also expanded the footprint to add a large mudroom/pantry off the kitchen. The mudroom with heated slate floors also includes a dog shower, storage space and additional pantry storage. The addition’s window design and material selection perfectly complement the original home.
The main stair showcases the carpentry skills of the craftsmen who built the home. The second floor has a large loft office/living area plus 2 bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and roof top decks.
The master bedroom has vaulted ceilings, 3-piece en suite bath and its own private deck which enjoys views over the property. A special stained glass window was created for this room.
Similar to the master bedroom, the large second bedroom has vaulted ceiling and a 4-piece bathroom with an antique bathtub. This bright bedroom has views in several directions and also has a custom crafted stained glass accent window.

Additional Lands Next Door!
To the east of the main lot is another separately deeded lot which can be acquired. This additional lot would bring the total acreage to over 72 acres! This neighbouring lot has 2 road entrances, a large pond plus a hockey cabin placed alongside a lighted skating rink. The covered porch on the hockey cabin proudly displays a “hotstove league” sign which recalls famed broadcaster Foster Hewitt’s lively intermission discussions about hockey issues around a pot-bellied stove. The hockey cabin is your own “hotstove lounge”.
The lands can be expanded even further! A second house on a 24 acre lot with pond and private drive can offer additional flexibility to this offering. This offering provides the opportunity to acquire 2 houses on three lots totalling 96.24 acres!
