Wired in the wilderness
Blog by Susan Brown | May 28th, 2017
What do you do if you love nature, but your lifestyle
requires you to stay connected?
Your family and you want to escape the hot and muggy city in the summers, but your executive lifestyle means that you must stay connected; two desires that haven’t been easily combined.
Introducing a contemporary, custom built 6000 sq. ft. home, nestled in 5 acres of native Canadian wilderness, that brings modernity and Mother Nature together in a elegant and luxurious, yet refined and effortless way.
Modernity and Mother Nature unite at Tasso Lake
You can enjoy access to your peninsula property on Tasso Lake with your year round, privately maintained road. The 2011, newly built home is surrounded by mature and majestic Hemlock, Cedar, and Balsam trees on land that has been left in its natural and organic state. You will appreciate the aesthetics of such a plan, as well as the knowledge that there will be no landscaping maintenance required.
1,700 ft. of unblemished south-facing shoreline meets the fresh waters of pristine Tasso Lake. You can enjoy the 2 sandy beaches and your spacious dock knowing that because of frozen development ordinances, your tranquil view will remain unchanged. Small-mouth bass abound in the clear waters, and the trails that weave throughout the property provide a multitude of options for 4-season recreation.
Algonquin Park in your backyard
And being on the doorstep of Algonquin Provincial Park is a rare luxury as well. From your cottage, you will only be a short drive away from 7,600 kms of fresh water lakes with many camping sites and numerous recreational activities available throughout the year. And as you are only a 5 minute ATV or snowmobile ride away from the Park, it really does feel like you have Algonquin Park in your backyard.
2 original 1940s era Bunkies keep the history of your property alive
The serenity of Tasso Lake surrounds the contemporary masterpiece that is this rare home. Views of 180-degrees dominate the rooms, as the architect valued highly the natural beauty outside and the way light enhances and illuminates a space. Wide vistas to your lake views are visible from almost every room and nature’s glory pours in from every angle.
The expansive windows embrace the views of nature
that surround this spectacular home.
6000 sq. ft. of living space is spread across 2 levels and features a private master bedroom sanctuary complete with a wood-burning fireplace and an oversized ensuite bath with fine details that include luxurious marble tile.
4 additional bedrooms sit quietly removed from the rest of the house and feature private ensuites and windows that embrace the light and views.
Cottage country kitchens don’t usually have all this
This kitchen has coveted features that have stepped out of a luxury designer’s wish list. And it is a gastronomist’s dream.
2 refrigerators and a wine fridge, 2 dishwashers, a propane Wolf stove, and an essential pantry make the central heart of this home functional and sleek.
Just beyond the large island work area, the high-ceilinged space opens up to a great room with an elegant stone surround wood-burning fireplace. How perfect to be able to cook up a spectacular meal, while still enjoying your family and friends relaxing close by.
The grand screened-in Muskoka room is accessed through sliding glass doors and features a comfortable sitting area and an outdoor kitchen with a Wolf BBQ.
Not your average cottage kitchen!
This spectacular home has superior technological conveniences such
- High-speed internet
- Reliable cell coverage
- A security system
- Lutron Lighting
- An automatic Window Shade Control System
- An HVAC system that includes geothermal heating for 2 furnaces
And you’ll never be unsuspectingly in the dark again, thanks to a 600-AMP electrical system protected by its 26-kW generator. And this home even has a heated, triple-car garage that features polished concrete floors, so all your vehicles will be kept in style too.
