Looking for a refuge from your busy life? Or perhaps a place to spend quality time with family and friends? Nestled under the shade of the trees behind the seven hundred and fifty feet of natural shoreline with long views across Lake Joseph, you can enjoy the ultimate level of solitude at 4558 Muskoka Road.

 

 
 
This handcrafted cottage was custom built in 2007 for the current owner with great attention to detail, along with warm wood textures throughout.  The dining room section of the cottage is enclosed with sections of logs from the original circa 1893 cabin.  The remainder of the logs were milled and used in the flooring of the upper level of the cottage.
 
 
 
 
Casually sophisticated style is reflected in the unique design elements of this building.  Hemlock flooring, various textures of pine throughout, stone fireplaces, hemlock kitchen cabinets and black granite counters give this cottage a feel of elegant comfort and blends harmoniously with its natural outdoor surroundings.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Three of the spacious bedrooms each have their own ensuite bathroom and walk-in closet.  There are several quiet areas for working on your business while you are spending time in Muskoka.  The fourth bedroom is ideal for young children or an artist’s studio due to its proximity to the master suite.
 
 
 
 
The boathouse (refurbished in 2005) exudes “olde” Muskoka charm with all the comforts.  Take in the gorgeous views down lake Joseph and listen to the call of the loons on the covered porch.  Let your guests enjoy their own private suite on the second storey of this charming boathouse retreat.  The two covered boat slips are accommodating for splendid watercrafts given their width of 10’2 & 12’ and length of 27’.
 
 
 
 
There are acres of level, gentle land to roam and run and play or just enjoy the serenity of nature. The possibilities for the use of the lands are as endless as limits of your imagination.  Two separately deeded lots allow for the building of a second cottage of a minimum of 750 square feet up to the maximum of 7,500 square feet as well as a second boathouse on the existing cottage property….or leave everything the way it is and enjoy!
 
 
 
The large garage allows for plenty of storage for all your toys as well as space for a woodworking shop or whatever else your hobby interests might be.  The garage is also the home to a 45KW (75 hour capacity) diesel generator which will power the entire property, both cottage and boathouse.
 
This property is currently listed at $6,600,000. For more information on this listing, please contact Jim or Iris Gardiner at (705) 765-6867.
