This wonderful country property is in the hills of Mulmur.
The pool has a beach entry of flagstone in granite. A hot tub perches at the highest level and water cascades over a series of Manitoulin stone steps into the salt water pool. Granite walls edge the pool, Owen Sound flagstone set in concrete forms the patio and the coping for the pool, and Manitoulin stone steps connect the patio to the upper lawn area. A built-in barbeque and serving area is also constructed of granite with Owen Sound coping. A timber frame pergola anchors the outdoor kitchen and bar. Underwater seating allows people in the pool access to the bar area.
Over 1000 tons of granite bounders were moved from local farmers fields and hedgerows to form the series of drystone walls which define the areas around the log home. They serve to anchor and age the landscape; and draw your eye to the beauty of the surrounding countryside.
The existing pond at the bottom of the hill was shallow and weedy, and over the years topsoil had contaminated it. It was enlarged, dredged, lined with clay, and engineered with an overflow system. A series of small ponds, waterfalls and connecting rivers were set into the existing hillside, with tons of granite creating watercourses and spillways. Two large pumps were set into a precast concrete pump house on the bottom of the pond to run the ponds. Over fifty spruce trees were planted along with some native shrubs and the area was seeded with a native flower mix. A sodded perimeter along the pond edge allows the homeowners access to their two favourite Muskoka chairs, where they can sit in serenity and solitude.
