A Work of Art (on Acres)!
Located just a few hundred metres from Toronto shopping centre and perched high on a hill overlooking the lake, you will find “Puntei Cottage". Locals will recognise this landmark property instantly however the current owners have added significantly to the original home. An elegant circular drive provides comfortable visitor parking but also access to a 45 square metre carport and down the drive to five-car garaging.
The L-shaped front veranda has hinged lattice panels for privacy and temperature control whilst adding a heritage touch to the space. A central front doorway leads to the original four rooms which have been repurposed to make a glorious master suite. Its beautifully appointed ensuite has delightful heritage touches artfully blended with modern design elements. The other two rooms retain their high ceilings and decorative fireplaces. The home also features a study.
The ground level of the extension comprises a great room featuring island bench country style gas cooking range, handcrafted joinery, high ceilings, and stacking doors opening on to a spa enclosure. There is also a butler’s kitchen meticulously fitted out with handcrafted cupboards and a restored enamelled double sink.
Head upstairs to find an enormous space (large enough to be a house on its own). With its own kitchen and bathroom, this could be a self-contained flat, short-term rental accommodation, games room, studio, library or pretty much anything else you could think of. This space also enjoys its own balcony and predictably, lovely lake views.
The large spa enclosure is fully screened, and the spa is giant sized and more like a small, heated swimming pool complete with swim jets.
Behind the garage and workshop is a very smart enclosure for your poultry or bird collection.
You can then expect the unexpected as you stroll down through the balance of the 8,264 square metre parcel of land discovering terraces, a tree house, flying foxes, even a semi-permanent creek. There is also a clear walking track taking you in either direction through the bush wilderness - a complete surprise considering you may have been enjoying a coffee in the shopping centre five minutes ago.
Again, so many ways to enjoy this space. Develop your lifelong passion for an azalea garden, let the kids run loose with their BMX bikes, or set up a permaculture vegie garden.
