628 Big Bay Point Rd. (Innisfil)
Asking price: $10.5-million
Taxes: $30,000 (2012)
One of the best features of 628 Big Bay Point Rd. is the privacy that the more than five-acre waterfront property provides, the homeowner says.
A stone fence and electronically controlled wrought iron gates open on to a winding driveway surrounded by woods, says listing agent Natalie Kopman of Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd.
The property has 330 feet of water frontage and includes a main house, a 1,200-square-foot guest house and a four-car garage. A tennis court, a pool, a change house and a gazebo are other features.
The main house and guest house have stone exteriors and slate roofs. “Views from entertaining areas and bedrooms offer wonderful lake vistas,” Ms. Kopman says.
The Cape Cod-style main house has approximately 8,500 square feet of living space on two levels plus a 2,986-sq.-ft. lower level.
The foyer has a double closet and the library has a vaulted ceiling, a fireplace and a walkout to a garden. A moulded ceiling, a centre island, a breakfast area and a fireplace are features of the open-concept country kitchen.
The combination dining room and sunroom has a stone floor and a walkout to the garden.
A main-floor bedroom has a fireplace, a walk-in closet, a sitting room and a walkout to the garden.
The master suite has a vaulted ceiling, a two-sided fireplace, a gym, a sitting area and his-and-hers ensuite bathrooms. A fireplace, a sitting area and a four-piece ensuite are features of the other two bedrooms on the second floor.
“I believe this home would appeal to someone who loves to entertain. It has an open-concept design with a wonderful flow,” Ms. Kopman says. “My favourite room is the sunroom/dining room, which has floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the lake and views of beautiful sunsets.”
The property’s location within about an hour’s drive of Toronto is another bonus, she says, adding that the area offers many other properties that are in the same price range or more.
