Enjoy Muskoka in comfort and style. This stunning cottage and 2-storey boathouse were specifically designed to blend into their gorgeous woodsy backdrop while taking full advantage of the magnificent views and the rejuvenating natural surroundings.
Constructed with the highest quality materials and completed in 2013, this modern cottage exudes enveloping warmth and cottage charm paired with an elegant, contemporary flair. The atmosphere feels luxurious, while at the same time, it invites people to relax, unwind, and have a great time. Engineered maple flooring extends throughout the main living areas, and absolutely stunning arched wooden beams embellish the soaring vaulted ceiling. The towering wall of windows in the Great Room brightens the entire space with natural light and provides wonderful views from the main floor and the second floor landing. A custom gourmet kitchen with a massive island and breakfast bar area is open to the spacious dining area. Walk out from the dining room to the expansive front deck or into the Muskoka room with “Weatherwall” windows. The main floor master suite has sliders to its own private deck overlooking the water and a lavish ensuite bathroom with heated floors and free standing soaker tub. An open maple staircase leads up to a sitting area on the landing. Two upper level bedrooms have lovely lake views and their own private bathrooms. The lower level family room can be used a media room or games room and features a walkout to the spacious stamped concrete patio. A kitchenette and full bathroom offer added convenience for the occupants of the large bedroom on this level, which has an attached bunk room that is great for kids.
A few steps outside the cottage is the recently refreshed bunkie, which is a delightful place for overflow guests to rest. Low rise, easy stairs lead past a breathtaking rock wall down to the user-friendly, level land at the waterfront, home to a beautiful two storey boathouse. Two interior slips have electric lifts, and the exterior covered slip has a manual lift. The boathouse is equipped with everything needed for a day at the lake; the main level has a full size refrigerator and a BBQ area, while the living space on the upper level has a full bathroom, living area, and kitchenette, plus a bedroom and loft area for overnight guests. Three sets of French doors face east, north, and west, frame three different, amazing lake views, and lead to the incredible 1000 square-foot, wrap-around Duradeck which enjoys plenty of sunshine. Along the shoreline is a separate swim dock and sheltered swimming cove.
Life at the cottage should be comfortable, but more importantly, it should be fun. This property offers several ingenious features that up the fun factor big time. One wall of the Muskoka room has an opening to its own bar area, perfect for serving morning coffee or evening beverages. In the lower level, surround sound is wired in for a maximum home theatre feel, while the kitchenette ensure snacks are close at hand. The “Treehouse Lounge” gazebo also has Weatherwall windows and is an enchanting space in which to relax, chat, play games, or even camp out for the night. The lakeside bon fire pit built into a lovely stone patio will be the setting for many nights under the stars. The beach area will entertain kids for hours. Those who dare can enjoy a plunge into deep lake water from high on the boathouse deck. This is a retreat for fun-loving souls who appreciate comfortable amenities while living cottage life to the fullest.
Not only is this property conveniently located between Bracebridge and Port Carling, in the desirable Beaumaris area, it is also easily accessible year round directly off of a municipally maintained and plowed road. Four season enjoyment is complete with a massive dry stack wood burning fireplace in the Great Room, a remote controlled propane fireplace to warm the lower level family room, and of course a forced air propane furnace with an “Ecobee” thermostat; turn the heat up at the cottage from your smart phone as you leave the city so it’s nice and cozy when you arrive. The oversized, detached garage offers plenty of storage for cars and toys.
With an insulated concrete form foundation pinned to bedrock under the cottage, cedar siding and exterior trim, and pine timber framing, this cottage was built to last, just like the memories that will be made here. Loaded with features for comfort, convenience, and fun, located on a beautiful piece of private land in an unbeatable location, this wonderful cottage retreat truly has it all.
