The place

A custom-built three-bedroom, two-bathroom modular home sitting on the Bay of Quinte in Rossmore. Winter-proof, the place has a show-stopping deck, eight skylights, striking views of nature and 36 metres of shoreline. It’s a five-minute drive to Belleville and Highway 401 and another half hour to Sandbanks Provincial Park.

The history

Realtor and general contractor Anita Springate-Renaud spent the past five years building this house with her father, Horst. A long-time Prince Edward County resident, Horst started the project in 2018, but supply chain delays forced construction to drag on until this past spring. He’s since opted to live closer to Toronto for the city’s amenities, so Anita is now putting the property on the market.

The tour

An illuminated steel roof tops the shiplap home—configured into two pods to accommodate guests who enjoy a bit of privacy.

Copper-enforced double doors with a 300-year warranty give way to the foyer, which has oak floors.

Tucked behind the oak staircase is the kitchen. It comes with stainless steel appliances and a five-seat marble island with storage.

The dining area overlooks the front yard through wall-to-wall windows.

In fact, massive windows, like this six-panel walkout, surround the home and dominate the design of the main floor.

This hallway has six panels of windows.

Both secondary bedrooms are downstairs, each with a view of the front yard.

You can see the front yard from each of the secondary bathrooms

Upstairs, the main bedroom is equipped with oak floors, floor-to-ceiling windows and its own ensuite bathroom.

The main bedroom takes up the corner of the house

Here’s that ensuite, with a marble glass shower and basketweave tiles.

The bathroom connects to the suite and the hallway

There are lofts atop each of the two pods. This one is staged for a rollicking chess match.

The pods are topped with lofts that could be lounges or rec rooms

The second loft is a twin of the other.

A guest house, with a bathroom and a two-car garage, also sits on the property.

The guest house out back has its own garage and bathroom

Here’s what the guest house bedroom looks like.

The reinforced deck at night: it’s ideal for big parties and can easily support a hot tub.
