A private estate with dock and lake access! This classic Arts and Crafts style home is situated in an extraordinary location, just down the street to Sylvan Lake, and surrounded by over two acres of massive trembling aspens. It has three fully developed levels, with 3348 square feet of living space, including 5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, three expansive outdoor living areas, and an oversized triple garage. Only the highest quality materials went into this home and the structure was completed with the skill of a bygone era. German trained craftsmen constructed the entire Cornerstone Timber frame with Eastern White Pine timbers, chosen for both strength and beauty. The home was carefully created to have calming views of the forest through every window in the home. The main floor boasts a massive great room and dining with vaulted open beam ceilings, huge windows, and an incredible Eldorado stone Rumford fireplace. The sun room is a refuge for reading, sleep, or breakfast. It captures the morning sun through a sea of beautiful sash windows. The bright custom built kitchen with full bar area opens directly to the large BBQ area. Completing the main floor is the master bedroom (and ensuite) with garden doors onto the huge back deck. The top two floors feature wide plank Douglas fir hardwood and African slate. The second level of the home is an expanse of timbers with two large and very unique bedrooms, both with antique stained glass interior transom windows bringing in the natural light. One features a timbered hideaway with ship’s window, and the other has a ladder leading up to a large loft that sleeps two or three, all railed for safety. They are both always popular with children! There is a sitting area open to below that can be used as an office or additional sleeping, and also a large bathroom. The lower level is built for entertaining. A full walk out, it is sun filled with spectacular views! There is a large family room with wet bar and gas fireplace, leading out to beautiful patio with the hot tub and fire pit. Two additional bedrooms, and a laundry room complete the space. Wit’s End, as the home is known, is reminiscent of an Old English Cottage, but with all the upscale modern conveniences and enabled with the latest technology. Fiber Optics have been installed underground to ensure high speed capability all the time. The exterior of the home and triple garage is beautiful Eldorado stone and Hardie board. The yard is impeccable, with extensive landscaping of natural rock and beautiful gardens. This timeless and breathtaking property is a true sanctuary and offers a rare opportunity to enjoy both the utmost in privacy, as well as the convenience of a short walk to the quiet shoreline with a shared dock and your own boat slip on Sylvan Lake. The summer village of Birchcliff has recently guaranteed lake access and management of the dock. Don't miss your chance to experience and own this exquisite, truly one-of-a-kind estate!
