5.6 Acre Estate with 506 ft. of Waterfront on Lake Simcoe in Ontario, Canada

5.6 Acre Estate with 506 ft. of Waterfront on Lake Simcoe - $929,000

This is a highly unusual, lakefront estate just outside of Orillia, Ontario, Canada. The property has 500 ft of waterfront on Lake Simcoe's quiet and serene Smith's Bay. A 28 ft boat is parked at the small dock in the summer. It is an hour and a half drive from downtown Toronto and 10 minutes from Casino Rama. Wildlife and birds abound. The property is completely private and purposefully organic, with protected land adjoining both sides. The house is superlative, and of traditional European construction. Brick, solid wood, stone and tile are the predominant materials. The doors, staircase, railings and cupboards are oak. A stained glass window from a church in Europe is set over the front door. The entrance room has a vaulted ceiling and candelabra. There is a great granite stone fireplace (Finnish cross current design) that can heat most of the home. The great diversity of bird life makes insects non-existent in the daytime. There is an unfinished space for an apartment over the garage. It is a house of rare quality, on a truly beautiful property.
