The three season home of a noted local builder, this 5.2 acre private island, features a gracious custom built, three bedroom, two bath, main cottage, a 550 sq. ft. guest cabin, a covered, 2 slip boat shed, a dockside workshop, spacious terraced decking for waterside entertaining and generous docking for 6-8 boats.

The island offers both stunning views of open water to the south west and a natural deep water harbour on the protected east side.

The main cottage is perfectly sited atop a granite shoulder surrounded by a mixed forest of pine, maple and oak. The east facing front entrance and kitchen/pantry overlook the harbour while the principal rooms are oriented to breathtaking southwest views of the open water.

At the harbour one is greeted by open decks terraced against a dramatic, smooth rock face and a gently trickling waterfall. The approach to the front entrance is via a gently sloping boardwalk, scribed into the rock, which curves up to the entrance deck. perfect for carts and completely accessible for wheelchair or walker

Undulating curves of the entrance deck repeat the curve of the arched windows and front door.

The entrance foyer opens into a large great room; kitchen, living and dining with a sun room off the dining area. A southwest facing window wall and sky lights flood the room with light and 9' high walls and vaulted ceilings enhance the impression of airy spaciousness.

Finishing materials and the palate are muted light neutrals, pale blond, off white, pale pine ceilings, light beige broadloom, all in deference to the glorious natural surroundings.

The Living Room


The living room is oriented to the southwest facing window wall, overlooking views filtered through the forest to the open water. Upper operable transoms and ceiling fans allow for cooling air flow. On the south west wall of the great room is a built in entertainment centre and a built in propane fire place.

A wet bar separates the living & dining areas with bar fridge, bar sink and undercounter storage.

A tempered glass and cedar railing around the deck allows unobstructed views.

The Kitchen

The custom designed kitchen has a double window overlooking the harbour, and generous storage and counter areas. It features a four seat side island which functions perfectly for informal meals, and as a compact office space and a marble topped centre island on casters which works well as prep centre and storage.
