There’s beautiful real estate, and then there are architectural marvels: homes that are truly elevated — works of art made for living within — that will leave you simply swooning.

1641 County Road 13 would undoubtedly be defined as the latter.

Bauhaus-inspired and designed by blackLAB, this five-bedroom, seven-bathroom, over-,5000-sq.-ft Prince Edward County home boasts optimal privacy. The abode, positioned on a natural terrace, sits discreetly in 43 sprawling acres. One can explore well-managed forest, beautifully landscaped grounds, and — not to be overlooked! — over 400 feet of pristine, accessible water frontage. An array of recreational activities, from boating to kayaking to swimming, are waiting to be enjoyed.

A gorgeous lakeside pool, complete with an infinity edge, almost serves as a metaphor for the property’s blending of wildlife with chic, carefully considered craft.

Indeed, the home’s private setting, abundant with lush nature, is balanced by its sleek and modern design. Described in its listing as being “without rival,” here is a place where one can be swept away by organic beauty without ever losing access to contemporary conveniences.

Upon entering the home, you’re greeted by a striking double-height entryway, which opens into the main floor and serves up awe-inspiring lake views.

The dining, living, and kitchen areas are found across the home’s open-concept main level, and are hugged not only by floor-to-ceiling windows, but clerestory windows as well, all of which invite the sunlight in. (Once again, nature and sleek design are invited to mingle.) It’s not uncommon for a bald eagle or an osprey to quickly catch your attention, flying by at eye level.

The main level also accommodates four bedrooms, each with their own unique views and spa-inspired ensuites. Of these, we’d be remiss not to spotlight the primary, located in its own private haven-like wing. This serene sanctuary features a walk-in closet and a sunken sitting area overlooking the water — ideal for lounging with morning coffee or evening wine. Direct access from here to the pool makes for effortless daily living.


A fifth bedroom is located on the home’s lowermost level, which itself has been crafted along the site’s natural terrace, and — as you’d have it — really doesn’t resemble a lower level at all. On this floor you’ll also find a recreational room with a wet bar, a fireplace, and walk-out access to the grounds.

Speaking of the grounds, it’s time we draw attention to the largest of the home’s three patios; this incredible space — overlooking the bay — is where you’ll find that aforementioned shimmering infinity pool. Elegant and ideal for entertaining, this patio invites you to bask in the luxurious-meets-natural setting.

Our Favourite Thing

Have we mentioned yet how taken we are by this property’s blending of nature with modern design? While the abode holds its own as a contemporary art piece, the way it’s balanced by its lush surroundings is what truly brings the property’s personality forward. There’s a yin-and-yang quality waiting to be enjoyed here, where tranquility and contemporary connectivity are alive in equal measure.

Standing as its own oasis in the heart of PEC cottage country, this address brings a refreshing sense of savvy design to the region’s remote and peaceful shores. With very little motorized boat traffic, this lakeside location is especially serene — but still, all the conveniences of downtown Picton are just a few minutes drive away.

Whoever this home’s discerning buyer turns out to be, we can ensure one thing: they will be wise to let their life mimic the art that is 1641 County Road 13.
