Stone pillars and a circular drive escort you to the enchanting façade. Upon your entry you will be welcomed by the stunning curved staircase.

The principal rooms throughout the main level are generously proportioned and were designed with formal and relaxed entertaining in mind. The living room with gas fireplace is adorned with striking crown moulding while the formal dining room emanates French country charm with wood coffered ceilings and double door access to the private terrace. The refined kitchen exudes richness with travertine tile flooring, built-in appliances, biscotti stained millwork, limestone countertops, an oversized island with decorative corbels, ornate hood fan, travertine backsplash, cabinet crown moulding and built-in work station. Settle into the cozy family room or retreat to the Muskoka room through the captivating stone archways for a swim in the indoor spa or quiet evening in front of the fireplace.

This methodically planned home with a heated laneway is remarkably energy efficient offering significant reductions in Hydro and Heating Costs. Equipped with a solar energy system, propylene glycol radiant floor system, wind energy, a power generator and separate battery back-up, this estate has it all. Solar Energy: “The microFIT Program was launched in 2009 as part of the Ontario government’s efforts to increase renewable energy in the province. The program provides Eligible Participants with the opportunity to develop a “micro” renewable electricity generation project (10 kilowatts or less in size) on their property.” - Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) Propylene Glycol radiant floor system: This approach utilizes a dedicated heat source for the radiant floor. The fluid in a closed system is re-circulated around and around in a completely closed loop. There is no connection whatsoever to the domestic water supply. The main advantage to this system lies in the fact that, being closed, anti-freeze instead of water can be used as the heat transfer medium.
