Luxury always comes with a price, but in the case of SunPoint View -- a stunning new waterfront listing in the Kawarthas -- you get to choose it.
To a degree, anyway. The gorgeous property at 299 Bear Creek Road is available on two tiers: one listing, which encompasses the estate's entire 29 acres and features 1507 feet of family-friendly shoreline, prices the property at $4,995,000; the other, which covers three acres of land and offers shoreline spanning 230 feet, seeks to sell the space for $2,995,000.
Pick your pleasure, and either way, you'll be the owner of ample space for living, playing, and entertaining -- the latter of which this home simply begs you to do.
Covering 6,300 square feet, the stone and timber lake house in the heart of Kawartha Lakes is any host's dream come true. With seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms, the property overlooking Pigeon Lake used to be a charming bed and breakfast, before it hit the market to become a family's ideal haven.
Thanks to its past life, which was filled with welcoming excited guests and playing house for the many, this luxe home comes equipped with a cook-ready open-concept kitchen and dining room; gatherings with friends and family are sure to be easy, regardless of the season.
The living room, too, will make any crowd feel cozy. The open-pine ceiling is 18-feet high and the "Vivior" ceilings soar to 22 feet, all while the structure's solid timber frame boasts vaulted ceilings by Confederation Log. Think cabin-vibes meets cavernous ceilings, with natural textures woven through the space, which bring the outdoors in. Following in suit with the nature vibe, warming solid wood trim is showcased throughout the home, serving as a frame for the hardwood floors made of beautiful -- and durable -- solid ash, maple, butternut, and hickory.
When it's time to escape the crowd, several master bedroom options beckon. On the main level is one hideaway, featuring 20-foot cathedral ceilings, a raised soaking tub with a view of the lake, and radiant floors to keep you cozy. The second floor of the Coach House wing awaits with two bedrooms boasting 9-foot ceilings, each with its own private ensuite bathroom, meanwhile, two upper-level master bedrooms offer soaring ceilings of 15 feet as well.
And whether you're taking time to enjoy the lingering seasonal warmth, or you're gunning for a breath of fresh autumn air, there's plenty of reason to spend time on the back patio overlooking the lake during these transitional months. Head out with your morning coffee or for marshmallows around the fire in the evening, and be sure to spend sunny afternoons with a book at the end of the dock.
Those keen on exploring should zip the kayak over to the half-acre private island, which waits just off-shore, to enjoy an autumnal stroll... and maybe a little bird-watching.

Back on the mainland and separate from the primary lake house, a 1600 square-foot, three-bay workshop awaits. Fitted with an upper level ideal for a yoga or fitness studio, or even a recreation room, this additional space is just one other aspect of the property begging for a crowd to gather around. Whether it means the kids inviting their friends over for a weekend escape, or the whole family gathering round for Thanksgiving or Christmas festivities, this home was (literally) made to play host.
If the last several months have, for you, highlighted the importance of having a safe haven where nearest and dearest can savour each other's company, this listing is sure to land with you. Take a gander through the virtual tour below, and if your heart strings are tugged (they will be), don't wait -- cottage country waterfront is the cream of the crop, and this property won't last long.
