At times, the endless blue waters of Lake Huron’s picture-perfect Georgian Bay can resemble those of the Caribbean, complete with the same tranquil vacation vibes and unforgettable sunsets. You just have to be lucky enough to be there to enjoy it.
Thankfully, a newly listed beachfront home in Wasaga Beach takes full advantage of these soul-soothing vistas, offering a peaceful beachfront haven that seems worlds away from the city grind – yet sits less than two hours from downtown Toronto.
Nestled in the serene and secluded shores of Brock’s Beach, on the coveted west end of Wasaga Beach, 2084 Shore Lane offers a peaceful year-round retreat with all the trappings of modern lakeside living. Set back from the road for optimal privacy, the sophisticated – yet still comfortable and easy-breezy – home is designed (thanks, in part, to a recent renovation) to offer multiple vantage points of breathtaking views of the water that stretch as far as the eye can see.
In short, the star of the show of this property is the postcard-worthy beach, lapped by the never-ending and piercing Great Lake. Its stunning views – complete with epic sunsets that paint the horizon in various shades of pink, orange, and gold – can be enjoyed from the kitchen, dining room, a tiered back deck, or even the bathroom (we told you Toronto seems worlds away at this spot).

In particular, the recently renovated (2022) kitchen offers prime vantage points and a seamless connection between inside and out, with two sets of QFort sliding doors that reveal panoramic waterfront vistas – a breathtaking backdrop for the aforementioned sunsets that make reliable appearances from June through September. The open kitchen is made more remarkable with its exquisite powder-blue millwork, quartz counters, and stainless steel appliances.
The home’s talking points include impressive wood detailing throughout, whether that means exposed beams, built-in shelving, or sophisticated barn doors. No shortage of stone elements – from a dramatic fireplace (one of two fireplaces), to a bathroom backsplash and a cozy bar – complement the wood accents.
Perfect for hosting, the property features multiple wide-open and inviting living spaces. Two bunkies on the property are complete with gas and hydro and offer a ‘together but separate’ experience for visitors. Back in the main house, a modern and finished basement offers additional living and lounging areas, so guests enjoy ample personal space.
Other notable features of the property include a pristine laundry room with a modern washer and dryer, a charming front veranda, and a private loft space accessible from within the upstairs bedroom closet (a "magical" crowd-pleaser for children).
Our Favourite Thing
Our favourite thing about this property is definitely the newly renovated kitchen and the incredible panoramic views it serves up -- in addition to memorable meals, thanks to its top-of-the-line appliances. With its soothing vantage points and large central island, this is the type of kitchen that would inspire even the self-proclaimed "non cooks" to hone in on their culinary skills. Furthermore, with its double sliding doors leading onto a peaceful deck, this space easily brings the outdoors – complete with the sound of lapping waves – in.
This home is the type of spot that – once you settle in with a crisp glass of wine to complement the sunset – you won’t ever want to leave. If you do (somehow) need a change of scenery – or a grocery run – Collingwood sits just 10 minutes to the west. So do all kinds of activities for the year-round activity enthusiast, from hiking and golf, to Ontario's best downhill skiing.
Whether you’re in the market for a peaceful weekend retreat from the city, or a permanent home on the water, this shoreside abode encapsulates the very best of lakeside living.
