The West Coast Meets North Bay at this Vast Waterfront Timber Frame


Overlooking Four Mile Bay (Trout Lake) in North Bay, an authentic west-coast timber frame waits to serve as your cottage country escape.

Designed by BC’s famed Sticks and Stones Design Group, 1875 Northshore Road is timeless and sprawling, offering 2,800 sq. ft. of living space atop a level, 2.5-acre lot.

Complete with two guest bunkies (one with its own half-bath), a convenient storage shed, and a separate, insulated, triple-car garage, the address is equipped to meet and exceed not just the entire family’s needs but those of beloved guests, too.

With 310 feet of southwest facing shoreline providing all-day sun and spectacular sunsets, this listing provides an opportunity for lakeside living at its finest.

Directly to the west of the property, 2,000 feet of adjacent crown land provide a lush cushion of trees and greenery, adding even more privacy to an already remote location. But even with its vibe of solitude, the address remains a convenient less-than-20-minute drive from North Bay’s town centre. There, you can stock up on eats, drinks, building supplies, and lake toys, or sip coffee on a café patio.

That said, coffee will taste just as good — if not better — when enjoyed in the cedar Muskoka 3-season room on the property’s main estate.

Other stand-outs in the main house include a 30-foot skylight over the front entryway, which leads to the soaring Great Room and bedroom wing. With rustic, engineered wood flooring below and 22-foot high ceilings above, the airy and bright interior feels both cozy and incredibly spacious.

The kitchen boasts a full suite of stainless steel appliances, including a KitchenAid warming drawer, a Jenn Air gas stove, electric oven, dishwasher, fridge, and a compactor. As the kitchen leads into the main, open-concept living area, you’ll be invited to savour your snacks and sips around the central wood-burning fireplace, made of Canadian Shield granite.

Looking up, you’ll take in high-end, lodge-style lighting fixtures and a wrought-iron loft area the kids are sure to love. Underfoot, flagstone walkways carry you throughout the property, over to the shoreside bunkie that sleeps four and a guest cabin.

Down at the waterfront, more than 90 feet of dock are paired with a sandy beach area, providing space for sunbathing, cannon-balling, and sandcastle-crafting all at once. Out on the water, a floating swim platform offers a place to jump into the lake from… And also serves views of the low-maintenance landscape, complete with a mixed forest of birch, cedar, maple, aspen, pine, and spruce.


Stunning elements of the west coast combined with the tranquillity North Bay is beloved for at this pristine property. If you’re a lover of both, this listing was crafted just for you.
