The Place: A gargantuan estate on Lake Rosseau, complete with a cottage, guesthouse and boathouse.

Bragging Rights: The neighbours won’t be able to compete with all of the luxury extras at this place. Aside from 90 acres of open space, there’s a private airstrip, a private beach, a putting green and a driving range.

Big Selling Point: The boathouse doubles as a second cottage. Built by McCormack Architects, it has nicely designed living, kitchen and dining rooms, sleeping quarters, three covered decks and three boat slips. A 50-foot wall of accordion-style glass doors lets the breeze in on nice days and keeps the rain out on not-so-nice ones.

Possible Deal Breaker: Maintaining this property means keeping three separate living spaces in good repair, mowing a lawn the size of a small golf course and keeping weeds away from the airstrip. The buyer will have to leave room in his or her budget for an entire staff of helpers.
