An Eco Cottage With a View
Summer is starting to wind down, but there are still several weeks to enjoy cottage life, and what better place than Ontario’s cottage country, (also referred to by the New York Times as Malibu North because of the number of Hollywood celebrities who have become part-time residents). I haven’t heard any news that any of these cottages were constructed in an environmentally sustainable way, but maybe this one, placed on the market recently, will start a trend.
Only a hop, skip and a jump from Muskoka, this cottage is located on one of the Great Lakes, Lake Huron, on the Bruce Peninsula (in Georgian Bay, to be specific) and provides a majestic view that is surely the envy of all of Malibu North, along with the numerous other features this cottage offers.
Originally built as a eco-lodge, there is plenty of room for family and friends without any worry of overcrowding. All this space can be especially handy for those guests who just won’t leave. This 8 bedroom (including 2 – 2 story suites), 9 bathroom, sustainable cottage features recycled douglas fir pillars that soar over the main entry as well as systems that provide radiant heating, natural cooling, rainwater harvesting and the biofiltration of grey water.
Other features include a two story library, three fireplaces, a salt water infinity swimming pool and proximity to a scuba diving haven with pristine waters and shipwrecks to explore. A great place to spend the summer! Can be yours for $6.5 million. See more pics here
