Entering the drive, you will be embraced by the enchanting landscape and abundant forest of this remarkable estate. Upon entering the house through the foyer, you will be greeted by warm vaulted pine ceilings and a sweeping vista of the property and lake through a series of large windows. The focal point of the space is the impressive double stone fireplace, providing cozy fires on cold days and a delightful ambiance throughout the year. Flowing seamlessly from the family room, you will find the kitchen and dining area, offering ample room for gathering with family and friends. Alternatively, you can retreat to the four-season sitting room with its expansive windows that overlook the brook, backyard, and, of course, the lake. This room also grants access to the expansive deck where you may choose to embrace the outdoors from the comfortable lounge seating or alternately a separate area for dining or relaxation.
The three bedrooms provide spacious accommodations, and the primary bedroom, with its own sitting area, offers a welcoming sanctuary complete with a generous ensuite featuring a luxurious soaker tub and a separate walk-in closet. The large basement, partially framed and recently insulated with foam, offers plenty of space and awaits your personal touch. A separate entrance leads to a combination mudroom and laundry area, which provides access to the garage or the lakefront.
Meandering paths guide you through the property, leading to 200 feet of private shoreline, where you can revel in breathtaking views of the lake. Take it all in from various vantage points as you contemplate your daily activities or simply dip into the clean, clear waters of Buckshot Lake to rejuvenate yourself. The grounds provide a naturally tranquil retreat and have been designed to be enjoyed with minimal maintenance, despite their professionally landscaped appearance. An independent lake water system facilitates outdoor watering, while utility needs are well organized in the woodshed and picturesque shed. For hobbyists, the two-plus-car garage offers ample space to store their collections.
The attention to detail evident in both the home and the grounds perfectly compliments the enclave of uniquely designed and well-maintained waterfront homes situated along North Shore Road, in the heart of the Land O' Lakes region. Buckshot Lake, known as a premium lake, supports a wide range of recreational water activities and is home to diverse fish species, loons, and other migratory animals, providing endless encounters with nature.
Welcome to 1386 North Shore Road—a rare opportunity where the pleasures of this exquisite home harmonize with the unparalleled beauty of this natural waterfront property. Located just two hours from Ottawa, one and a half hours from Kingston, and three hours from the GTA, a lifetime of cherished memories awaits you.
