This much-admired private Musoka retreat - fancily dubbed 'Edgestone' - has never before been offered for sale! It boasts 2,000 feet of private, idylic Lake Joseph shoreline, composed of natural sand beaches, and dramatic granite outcroppings reminiscent of Georgian Bay. And since it's situated on a cove, it's protected from both prying eyes and rough days on the water!
The compound is actually a collection of 4 vacant lots totalling 29 acres, with one luxuirious 7,000 square foot cottage at its centre. There's also a large garage, two shoreline boathouses, and, of course, a dock!
Built and furnished with a traditional 'stone and beam' cabin aesthetic, the cottage is a rustic retreat with quality finishes and modern amenities that hint at the contemporary without overwhelming the outdoorsy feel. Panoramic west and southwest views offer picturesque sunsets and stunning treetop vistas - how sweet is that?
With seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms, this is the ultimate extended family getaway that's also perfect for hosting a crew of vacationing friends! Take a Look:
And that's just what is existing on the property! The real value - which may justify the multi-million doallr price tag, is in the opportunity it represents. With so much acreage, one would be able to built multiple cottages and out buildings - essentially, a compound - and still maintain the semblance of remoteness and privacy.
Muskoka continues to be a choice getaway for Canadians, Americans, and travellers from all over the world! It's remained immune to urban real estate dips and drops, maintaining a healthy - and accellerating - luxe cottage market!
Whether it's a day trip or an extended vacation, if you have the cash, we definitely recommend checking out Muskoka - 'The Hamptons' of the North!
