Sitting right on the water, surrounded by sweeping views of the serene Bateau Channel, is a home like no other, dubbed Nokomis. The lifestyle at 967, 985 & 995 North Shore Road, Howe Island is luxurious to say the least.
Amenities include a boat house able to fit watercrafts like a 125 foot yacht, expansive docks with lakefront access, and a private beach for float plane landings – and that’s just outside.
Moving beyond the near-25-acre lot, and passing through the doors at 967, 985 & 995 North Shore Road reveals a 8,742 sq. ft home featuring five bedrooms, each with its own ensuite bathroom, plus two half-baths, three grand fireplaces, and a kitchen fit for a gourmet chef.
This stately lakefront mansion maintains a warm feel, with vaulted ceilings to reveal the stunning views outside. Wood accents and white walls would give any guest the sense that they’re sitting in a traditional and elegant lodge.

There is nothing left to chance at this pristine island paradise; everything has been considered, from smart home technology and geothermal climate control through to the provision of a caretaker house and underground sprinklers for the property.
Our Favourite Thing
If we had to choose just one, our favourite feature would have to be the grounds. The house features multiple walkouts, which invite guests to take in the gorgeous sunsets on the channel. A number of wooded trails, gardens, a greenhouse, a private gazebo, beachfront fireplaces, an outdoor kitchen, and other hideaways on this stunning property encourage one to explore and relax, all within the gated lot.
Masterfully designed by architect Michael Preston, this home is perfectly crafted for a private getaway — or to host a slew of your favourite guests.
Surreal is the only appropriate word to describe Nokomis. The level of thought and detail evident in every element of this waterfront marvel will leave one truly in awe.
