This 4.8-acre property on the southern half of Ruby Island features a modern Frank Lloyd Wright inspired 3-bedroom main cottage and a one bedroom guest cottage in similar style, each overlooking water views and each discreetly located for privacy.

MAIN COTTAGE:

The main cottage, a 1500+ sq. ft. cedar post and beam "Lindal" custom cottage was designed in collaboration with the owners. Lindal considered the plan so successful that they incorporated the design into their own repertoire of featured styles.

Built in 2012 the three-bedroom cottage reflects many of the design elements typical of the Frank Lloyd Wright style; flat roof, rectilinear volumes; functional, clean and spare with emphasis on large glass walls which frame views, fill the interior space with natural light and bring the 'outside in'.

A natural stone and boardwalk pathway from the harbour leads to the roofed entry portico at the rear of the structure. Manicured lawns, a path of square cut pavers and ornamental plantings set the stage for what lies within and beyond.

Entry brings one immediately into the central core of the home, the Great Room, its full height glass walls revealing breathtaking views over the southern shoreline. A spacious and airy room with 13'ceilings and clerestory windows it accommodates a living room with a built in zero clearance wood burning fireplace, a dining room and a galley kitchen with central island.

Fifteen foot sliding glass doors open from the great room onto the outdoor deck sheltered by the projecting roof overhang. The main deck steps down to a lower entertainment deck and ultimately to the shoreline.

Bedroom wings, flank each end of the great room; to the east, the master bedroom and ensuite, to the west a fully screened porch, two guest bedrooms, laundry/utility room and 4 pc bath.

The cottage has been designed to accommodate an addition onto the guest wing for additional bedrooms.

HARBOUR:

The harbour, located in a cove on the sheltered leeward side of the island, has two docking areas, the main L shaped dock which can accommodate a 40' boat and a secondary 28' finger dock. A shallow entry swimming area is located close to the secondary dock.

GUEST COTTAGE:

A 450 sq. ft. guest cottage is perched on piers at the water's edge close to the primary dock.

The space accommodates a combined living room/bedroom with pull-down queen-size bed. The room is anchored and warmed by a granite stone fireplace. There is also a kitchenette with sink and small fridge, a 4-piece bath with claw foot bathtub and shower head and a utility room. For cooler days heat is provided by electric baseboards. Three sets of sliding glass doors open onto a surrounding wooden deck and a wooden staircase leads up to a 450 sq. ft. roof deck with outdoor granite stone fireplace.

LOCATION:

Ruby Island is located in the very desirable cottage community of Sans Souci. It is a short boat ride to the Sans Souci Cottagers' Association headquarters on Frying Pan which sponsors a Children's camp & pickle ball courts. The SS Tennis Club is also located here as is a local marina for provisions and LCBO and the famous Henry's Fish Restaurant. Ruby is ~20 minutes by boat to all the full-service marinas in Parry Sound and approx. 2.5 hours from YYZ via the 400 4-lane Highway.
