Elegant Lakefront Chateau
Location: North of Toronto, Ontario, Canada and less than one hour from The Pearson International Airport, on the coveted North Shore of Kempenfelt Bay.
Built in 2010, this magnificent villa embodies the classic beauty and symmetry of a traditional French country chateau. A brilliant fusion of Old World architecture and modern building technology. Solid, energy-efficient ICF understructure finished with hand-cut Frontenac limestone and custom wrought iron work by European master craftsmen. Handcrafted copper downspouts, window boxes and a unique entryway reminiscent of Medieval Europe. The geothermal heating/cooling system provides environmentally sustainable and cost-effective four season comfort. The steeply-pitched hipped roof is exquisitely finished with maintenance-free composite cedar shakes, including a lifetime warranty.
This 10,000 sq. ft. home was created with expansive spaces for relaxed family living and grand entertaining. Finished with natural limestone, marble and walnut flooring. The kitchen features premium Miele/Dacor appliances, an immense island made of solid walnut and a spacious walk-in commercial pantry. There are four large bedrooms, each with lake views and full ensuite. The master bedroom is on the main level with a luxurious ensuite, walkout patio and separate dressing room. There are four reinforced concrete patios which are integrated into the ICF wall structure of the house, two from the main level and two from the upper level, each with stunning panoramic lake views.
The spacious living/dining area opens onto views of the saltwater pool and lake. The 203 foot private shoreline has a concrete platform at the water’s edge with galvanized steel docks. The reinforced concrete boathouse is equipped with two marine rail systems and remote launch.
The property is located on a secluded laneway with limited access. Completely private, yet only 5 minutes to the restaurants, bars and shops of downtown Barrie. The property is also very close to a large regional hospital, shopping and highway. Easy access by watercraft to Friday Harbour Resort & Marina for waterside dining and entertainment. The Lake Simcoe Regional Airport accommodates executive jets and is only a few minutes away. The airport is currently under a three phase enhancement program which will include charter services and eventually an air terminal. (LSRA / CYLS) see link on this site.
