With 540 feet of southern-exposure shoreline on a sloping cleared and treed lot, Bellevue Estate is a jaw-dropping, 18,000-square-foot lakehouse on 40 acres in Muskoka, Ontario Canada.
The home features 14-plus bedrooms, 10-plus baths, a great room with 35-foot vaulted ceilings and two stone fireplaces and a Muskoka media room made with reclaimed timbers from a salvaged 19th century shipwreck. The main-floor master bedroom features a 30-foot ceiling with a five-piece en suite, including a claw tub.
This home is the essence of “laid back luxury with several intimate gathering areas, despite it’s formidable size,” says Ross Halloran of Sotheby’s International Realty Canada who is listing the property for $11.5 million.
Entertaining abounds with a live music private bar and games arcade, a movie theater, fitness center with a hotel-grade sauna and a yoga/massage studio.
Rounding out the property there is a two-story, two-slip boathouse with a gazebo shaded seating area, coveted sand beach, art studio, tennis court with a change house and massive sports field, a private ski hill/snowboard park, and a treehouse jungle gym with a zip line through the secluded forest.
“This home is perfect for someone who loves to entertain large gatherings of family and friends as it sleeps over 30 people,” says Halloran.
