Location: Balsam Lake, City of Kawartha Lakes, Ontario, Canada
Completion timeframe: 10 months
Perched on tranquil Balsam Lake, this stunning custom build project features a main cottage, boathouse, bunkie, and additional guest cottage. This transformation is both contemporary yet traditional – keeping with the surrounding neighbourhood’s aesthetic.
The main cottage is complete with a spacious master suite, large eat-in kitchen perfect for casual gatherings and entertaining, and generous floor-to-ceiling windows that provide a jaw-dropping lake view. There are also spectacular finishes throughout the home, including custom cabinetry in the kitchen, bar, and two entertainment centers with quartz countertops. The exterior of the house is finished with natural granite stone, custom timbers, and black aluminum to create an eye-catching appearance.
The boathouse features a natural granite stone exterior with custom wood timbers, soffit lighting and custom sized windows for the entertainment/bar area.
The newly renovated guest cottage seamlessly compliments the main home, and features a vaulted ceiling, custom kitchen cabinetry with quartz countertops, luxury vinyl flooring, and a natural wood ceiling.
"Henley Contracting renovated a cottage for us to live in and then built a completely new cottage, boathouse and garage. We had an excellent experience. Construction was high quality and the project was completed on time and on budget." - Darryl C.
