Meander south down the approximately 2 km private gravel roadway, pass through the meadows, forests, by one of several ponds, and you shall reach the 7,140 sq ft (+ 4,736 in the lower level) post and beam family lodge house. Perhaps the length of the drive struck you as astounding, however, the magical story of this setting continues: 681 acres of land with 2.4 kms of private waterfront along Loughborough Lake.
Masterfully constructed (75%) by John Devries Log & Timber Homes. State-of-the-art geo thermal double heating / cooling system, top rated insulated, and windows by Marvin will ensure year-round comfort in the lodge. Ready for you to complete.
An incredible private family compound without compare. It is unheard of to find this scale of land with contiguous acreage.
Near the north side of the property, as you enter from Rutledge Road, you will be captivated by the 1840’s limestone original farmhouse (3,240 square feet of a blank canvas). Much work has been taken to restore the exterior and its front porch, to period standards. Buyers will want to bring their architect or designer to envision the next chapter of its life, ideally as a future guest or property manager’s residence (interior has been completely gutted).
As a working farm, there are several outbuildings on site, including the monumental barn with ten horse stalls, office, tack room, and soaring hayloft above. The smaller second barn is currently used as an artisan workshop. Drive shed and a historic chicken coop complete the idyllic setting.
In describing the property, emphasis cannot be placed enough on the word “privacy”. You’ll get a sense of the magnitude of the land by riding the several kilometres of trails on an ATV. A veritable retreat from urban living.
Evening family BBQ’s are held in the lake front open air covered dining pavilion, which is located about half way between the family lodge and the guest house.
The adorable 1,165 sq ft guest house is set on its own interior 30 acre fishing lake. Walk-out to the oversized deck and you’ll immediately have a sense of tranquility that you may never have experienced before. In early spring, the sugar shack was created, for family adventures, to make pure syrup from the property’s magnificent maple trees. Children can pour the syrup on the fresh spring snow to make taffy or enjoy it on morning pancakes.
Only 20 minutes north of Kingston and the 401 highway. Another option would be land your floatplane onto the lake. The property is mid-point
between Toronto and Montreal.
The exceptional value of this property takes into consideration that the Buyer will wish to finish construction of the lake front lodge home, which is approximately 75% finished. All buildings are being sold on an “as is” basis.
A Hollywood actor and several professional athletes are among the 310 homes and cottages to call Loughborough Lake home, given its crystal clear beautiful waters, seclusion, and unparalleled peace and tranquility. Time to sit back and listen to the calm.
This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire an exceptional property which has been in the same family for generations.
