It is situated high on a 19,320 SF double lot, maximizing privacy. Elegant semi-circular gated drive way with a Porte Cochere.

No detail has been missed in this completely custom-made home!


Greeting you in the foyer is the breath taking grand spiral staircase with its sandstone column. To your left a formal living room and to your right a nice sized area to take off your coat and shoes. Go through the main gallery with its custom painted barrel-vaulted ceilings to get to the heart of the home. The stately dining room comfortably seats 10 people. The room has 4 built-in corner cabinets, coffered ceilings and a double French door to take you to an open patio space. The massive 26 x 17 FT kitchen has 10 appliances, which are all high end! Behind the cook-top are steel tiles. There is a wok kitchen with a stove + deep fryer, large exhaust fan and window!

Commanding the family room is a 2-story fireplace going to the top of the vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, windows & skylights. The Juliet Balcony from the upstairs opens to this room


Upstairs on the landing is a view to Deer Lake and the North Shore Mountains. The Master suite has windows on 3 sides, skylights & a fireplace. Double French doors lead you to your private balcony. A dressing area has a nice sized make up/dressing desk mirrored area. A large walk in closet, completed with an organization system and its own heat control. The master bedroom ensuite bathroom has a large jetted tub, double sink, toilet, bidet and a large shower with a Grohe multi shower head system + rain shower. The glass on the shower door and toilet room are all custom made including the etched art work.

All bedrooms are a good size with ensuite bathrooms. A large laundry room with plenty of space to care the laundry plus extra storage is available in this room. The upper gallery ends with French doors which take you to a Juliet Balcony over the Family room.


The basement is perfect for entertaining! The wine cellar is constructed with tongue and grove cedar throughout and it can store over 1000 bottles of wine! A stainless-steel exterior door is there for easy access to bring supplies into the home. The room also has a meat hanger/cold room. The basement has a massive billiards room with a canoe skeleton light fixture custom made for the room, a rock faced floor to ceiling fireplace with art alcoves built in. But the centre of attention is the real totem pole with log beams on the ceiling From Hill’s Native Art.  A drink shelf running along the wall and there is a full serviced bar which seats 10.

There is a media room which seats 7+, curtains for the real movie experience, and surround sound. There is also games/card playing area. Most of the basement has sound proofing on the ceiling so a party can happen downstairs without disturbing those upstairs (too much!).


Outside there are 2 double heated garages (one has a workshop in it), 2 patios, one open and the other covered with propane heaters, just past the koi pond after you cross the bridge is a great gazebo
