This historic property offers a rugged, natural northern Ontario forest, with its own 100 acres abutting 200 acres of Crown Land. Situated in Powassan Ontario, 25 minutes south of North Bay. 215 Oakwood Road is a magnificent 4100 square foot custom log home that sits on the location of the original barn foundation going back 100 years. Locally designed, built and sourced, there is true Canadian pride evident in this home. This property has a rich history.

 

 

 

The structure of this home boasts massive white pine timbers that were identified in the Temagami Forest. Some spanning close to 2ft wide. The modern interior finishes and fixtures in the kitchen and bathrooms were designed to contrast magnificently with the massive timber structure itself. It is a brilliant combination of rustic luxury. From the home to the natural landscape surrounding, the current owner’s intention was to always ensure the structure blended into the surrounding forest. They were inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s abiding credo, to never allow it to compete in any way, including its height, with nature itself.

 

 

 

The open concept layout is both stylish and functional. The kitchen was designed with comfortable entertaining in mind, from the generous island to the Sub-Zero fridge, Miele dishwasher and Wolf Stove and double wall oven. The principal rooms are highlighted by the soaring ceilings and beautiful wooden beams. The spacious living and dining rooms boast an abundance of natural light from the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the forested property. The stone used for the feature wood-burning fireplace in the great room comes from the coastline of Georgian Bay. 

 

 

The master bedroom, set in its own wing, has an office or optional sitting area just off the main part of the bedroom. Gorgeous views overlooking the pond and forest offer such a sense of peace and stillness. The tranquil ensuite includes double sinks, glass shower and soaker tub with a pretty spectacular view out the large windows with nature as the backdrop. Just off the master is a walkout to your own private screened-in porch area with access to the outside. Each of the additional two bedrooms have access to a screened-in porch overlooking the forest, offering a place to chill and take it all in. Bedroom 1 includes a 4 piece modern ensuite and bedroom 2 includes a 3 piece ensuite with glass shower.
