Cottage of the Week: $4.9 million for a modern retreat on Jack Lake

Cottage of the Week: $4.9 million for a modern retreat on Jack Lake

Address: 465 White Tail Drive
Neighbourhood: Apsley Agent: Anthony Peter Halcovitch, Bowes and Cocks Limited, Brokerage Price: $4,900,000

The Place: A massive and modern five-acre property beside the Peterborough Crown Game Reserve on Jack Lake.

The History: This four-year-old home sits on 1,370 feet of shoreline and has a massive 7,469 square feet of interior space. Built by Discovery Dream Homes (with direction from the current owner), the log and timber frame may look familiar to parents and campers at Camp Arowhon, which was also a DDH project.

Big Selling Point: The screened-in room above the boathouse provides an amazing view of the lake and fits a 10-seat dining table, the perfect place to have an almost-outdoor dinner—but without all the pesky bugs.

Possible Deal Breaker: Google puts the drive from Toronto at almost three hours. That’s a longer trek than the Muskoka crowd may be used to, but the benefits could be twofold: the homeowner can almost guarantee there’ll be no “pop ins,” and, more important, the lake is almost certain to be quieter and calmer than the buzzy Lake of Bays and Lake Joseph.

By the Numbers:

• $4,900,000 • $22,501 in taxes (2013) • 7,469 square feet • 1,370 feet of shoreline • 7 bedrooms • 6 bathrooms • 4.98 acres • 3-car garage • 2-slip boathouse
