Cottage of the Week: $6.2 million for a six-acre compound on Lake Rosseau
The Place: Built in 2012, this massive, 6-acre compound on Lake Rosseau has 490 feet of south-facing shoreline, 5 bedrooms, 6 washrooms and a three-slip boathouse.
Bragging Rights: On rainy days, the gourmet cooking can happen indoors in a kitchen fit for Ina Garten. A massive centre island is perfect for congregating around, plus there’s tons of counter space, a gas-burner stove and an oversized sink.
Big Selling Point: It’s not as if cottage life is particularly stressful, but if the owners find the weight of the city and work is still on them when they arrive, there are two soothing soaker tubs to wash those cares away. Or, for laugh-your-cares-away types, check out the lower-level screening room, with its massive projector screen.
Possible Deal Breaker: The three-slip boathouse promises another bedroom right at the water’s edge, but it’s still under construction. There’s an oversized suite above the garage, though, so the owner shouldn’t have too much trouble figuring out where to put guests.
