THE RAVENSCRAG ESTATE

Lake Rosseau

$15,950,000

This historic point of land offers 870 feet of privacy. It has everything you could ask for in a classic waterfront estate, including windswept pines, meandering stone pathways, beautifully terraced rock gardens, water's edge stone walls and lovely granite patios for dining and entertaining. The grounds are immaculate and the westerly views across Lake Rosseau are wide open and offer spectacular year-round sunsets. 

 

The buildings are meticulously maintained and sit upon the original point that Timothy Eaton’s family chose for their summer home over a century ago. This Windermere locale is one of the most sought after shorelines in all of the Muskoka Lakes. Golf, tennis, dining and the villages of Port Carling, Windermere, Port Sandfield and Rosseau are all just minutes away by boat. 

 

This architecturally designed and built cottage compound is a mixture of traditional Muskoka and Bar Harbor. The large main house has just been appointed with a new kitchen, baths, living room, entertainment room, bedrooms, chef’s grade appliances, high end audio visual components and an array of beautiful furnishings all created by designer Christopher Caterer. The lakeside facade offers a spacious covered verandah, a screened Muskoka Room and summer dining area plus a fabulous built-in stone barbecue patio off the kitchen. Primary rooms are large and airy with beamed ceilings, wide plank flooring, painted v-joint walls and ceilings, and French glass windows and doors.

 

The principal bedroom suite is located in a private wing of the cottage and enjoys its own stone fireplace with fireside sitting area, office/den, cathedral ceiling and covered verandah. The one bedroom lakeside guest cottage has a cozy living area with stone fireplace, kitchenette and a Muskoka room. 

 

At the waterfront, over 150 feet of dock frontage offers lots of room for all the water toys and includes a brand-new 1 1/2 storey boathouse. This well-designed structure has full living quarters above with two covered porches and a delightful open sundeck. On the lower level, you will find two oversized boat slips, a unique covered entertainment space for dining or lounging away a summer's day. The sliding glass doors lead out onto the expansive swim dock. The back side of the boathouse has the paddle board and canoe dock, which is closer to water level for easy launching. 

 

A 2-bay garage is large enough to store the ATV's, snowmobiles, bicycles plus a car or two. 

 

This type of property comes by only once in a generation.
