Cottage of the Week: $3 million for a Lake of Bays getaway with an architectural pedigree
The Place: A modern, spectacularly designed steel, wood and glass structure on Lake of Bays.
Bragging Rights: This cottage was designed by Shim-Sutcliffe Architects, a firm probably best known for its work on Toronto’s Integral House, a home so famous that it’s now the subject of a documentary.
Big Selling Point: Though we wouldn’t recommend splashing around in it, the reflecting pool is a nice alternative to a swimming pool, and it’s one of the cooler water features we’ve seen at a cottage.
Possible Deal Breaker: The wall of windows in the main-floor living room lets nature inside, but good luck binging on Say Yes to the Dress all afternoon without feeling guilty about missing a day of sunshine.
By the Numbers:
• 2,667 square feet
• 6 years old, approximately
