As the ‘Gateway to Cottage Country’, Lake Simcoe is Toronto’s backyard playground and has placed itself on the map as a destination for family recreational getaways and luxurious waterfront estates. A leisurely drive will have you enjoying the gourmet restaurants, boutique shops and cultural attractions of the resort city of Barrie and with easy highway access, you can be in the heart of the GTA in just over an hour. This location is also just minutes away from Friday Harbour, a 600-acre resort community currently under development, encompassing a 1,000 slip marina, 200-acre nature preserve, groomed hiking trails, 18-hole golf course and gourmet restaurants and boutique shops of the Marina Village complex. With so much to offer, Friday Harbour is poised to become the new heart of cottage country.
As you make your way through the trees of the over 6-acre property, you instantly feel your stress melt away. The hustle and bustle of the city is suddenly far behind and you start to feel at one with nature. This private, lakeside retreat is a flawless combination of luxury and comfort, designed to embody three of the homeowners’ passions: design, nature and family.
The brilliant landscape design encompasses every resort amenity while maintaining the integrity of the natural setting. The grounds are a cavalcade of colour; from the vibrant green foliage, to the pinks, whites and yellows of the flowers, to the sparkling blue water of the pool and Lake Simcoe.
No detail was overlooked with each perennial thoughtfully chosen and placed to create seasonal gardens that can be enjoyed all year long.
This exceptional waterfront estate was intended for multi-family enjoyment, with two separate residences sharing common recreational amenities. In the designer’s words, the vision was to “put a new spin on the modern family cottage…As one shared space didn’t necessarily work for all generations of a growing family.”
Both residences were designed and constructed to the very highest standards, with the finest materials, hand selected for their natural beauty and durability. Floor to ceiling windows and numerous walkouts in both homes connect you visually and physically to the outdoors while several outdoor living spaces provide exceptional vantage points from which to take in your surroundings.
A magnificent property that your family will enjoy for generations.
