Property Details

This cottage overlooks Muskoka Bay on Lake Muskoka. Located only 10 mins from the town of Gravenhurst and 20 mins from Bala. Only a 2-hour drive from Toronto.

Built on a shelf of Precambrian rock overlooking Lake Muskoka, this outstanding property consists of a spacious main cottage, a separate two-car garage, flagstone pathways and terraces, cedar decks and well-maintained perennial gardens. Below the main cottage sits a two-slip boathouse with upstairs living accommodations. The two large "morning" and "afternoon" docks extend the living space, and offer unbeatable views of the surrounding lake. The west-facing dock is a favorite place to gather for cocktails at the end of the day and watch the sunset. With its perfect south-west exposure, this property enjoys all day sun and breathtaking Muskoka sunsets.

Determined to maintain the natural beauty of the surrounding area, well-known Toronto architect Jerome Markson incorporated the original Precambrian rock into the design and structure of the cottage. The spectacular 7,200 sq.ft. main cottage features a light wood exterior and a bright, wood-paneled interior with high ceilings and elegant stone flooring.
Built with entertaining in mind, this cottage boasts spacious principle rooms, two Muskoka rooms, plenty of indoor and outdoor sitting areas, and a separate Master Wing; complete with an indoor hot tub and sauna. The open-concept Great Room is equipped with an impressive floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, oversized windows, sophisticated minimalist decor and doors leading to the outside deck. The original shelf of Precambrian rock was left completely intact and now extends, fully-exposed, across the entire back wall of the Great Room. The tasteful dining room is located just beyond and features an oversized wood dining table that seats 10, and a ledge with six stools that extends across the entire length of the room. Adjacent to the dining room is a bar area, complete with a sink, five bar stools, a flat-screen TV, and elegant wood countertops.
The sophisticated Games Room is just beyond this and is equipped with an extra large pool table and a stone fireplace. The larger of the two Muskoka rooms can be accessed through the games room or kitchen, complete with screened-in windows, a stone fireplace, a BBQ and a variety of lounge furniture. The sleek kitchen, tucked in behind the bar area on the main level, features top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, a large wood-paneled island with stone countertops, doors leading into both Muskoka rooms, a double-sided stone fireplace, and a separate kitchen table with six stools. An additional sitting area is located on the other side of the fireplace, with a door leading into the second, smaller Muskoka room.
