3286 County Rd 8, Waupoos, ON
It’s one thing to have a dream house. But it’s really what happens- and what is offered- beyond the four walls of a property that creates that intangible infrastructure around lifestyle.
What’s a day in the life like? How might you begin your day? What experiences await? What sights, sounds and aromas will draw you out? What memories will you make?
Where you live is fundamental to how you live. That’s why this dreamy home (and additional beach house), located on a long stretch of sand beach, is marvellous and magical, because of what it is- and where is- that offers opportunity for a richness of living.
With sweeping waterfront vistas, this expansive, resort-style home brings new context to lakeside living. And it is located close to all the sensory delights that Prince Edward County avails.
It’s worth noting that these compelling qualities are alluring for homeowners who plan to live in this sweet abode- and for homeowners that hope to rent it out in the robust PEC rental market: proximity to an incredible host of amenities, that offer the unique and coveted lifestyle that can only be found in Prince Edward County.
A location with the lifestyle you’ve dreamed of
Nestled pleasantly in the hamlet of Waupoos, this location offers much to the lucky homeowner and their guests.
Waupoos is central to much of Prince Edward County- and all it has to offer. Award-winning wineries, sustainable farmers with high-quality food, and endless list of eateries, fun and fabulous retailers, a vibrant art and music scene make this a truly enriching place to live.
Waupoos is known for its agricultural richness and is home to several orchards and farms.
Feel like dining out? There will never be a shortage of choices, and the culinary scene is one to be experienced in PEC. Close to home are Stella’s Eatery and the Lake of the Mountain Brewing Company. Some other area favourites include Angeline’s in Bloomfield, The Waring House in Picton and Drake Devonshire in Wellington.
Nearby is the Lake on the Mountain Provincial Park, great for a day trip.
In terms of life’s necessities, there are lots of options for artisan products and local farm-fresh fare with the many farms and orchards located close to home. Specialty shops abound in the neighbouring villages.
Galleries and unique retailers dot the countryside. In Waupoos, may we recommend Joe Clark Fine Arts, and The Cutting Factory.
Having good schools at hand is a necessity, and Prince Edward County has a few to choose from. In Picton there is St. Gregory Catholic School and Sonrise Christian Academy for elementary school, as well as CML Snider School in Wellington. High school is at Prince Edward Collegiate in Picton.
Benefits of living close to the water
Living on (on near) the water isn’t just about incredible scenery (although that is definitely a benefit). There are numerous studies on the mental and physical health benefits of living in proximity to the water. The gentle sound of the water and the lapping of the waves. The gentle breezes rolling offshore. The sense of greater well-being being surrounded by calm influences. It’s not surprising to learn that living near water has been proven to lower blood pressure, improve sleep quality, lower stress and also offer a number of mental health benefits.
And when these benefits exist beyond your own front door, because lakefront living is simply part of your daily routine? That’s something else altogether.
Two incredible properties in a prime location
This large acreage not only offers beachfront living, sunny southern exposure on Lake Ontario, but also has two separate residences. It’s the perfect arrangement for a family compound, a luxe rental property, or both.
This dynamic property is all about curb appeal and alluring outdoor space. With 560 feet of sandy beachfront in a naturally protected cove, a meandering 700 feet of treed entrance drive extending an elegant welcome and rolling lawns, and beachfront seating in the secondary property, and a covered porch plus a second-floor, clear-railing deck in the main house to take in the views of the water and the countryside around, it’s breathtaking from dawn until dusk.
At approximately 4290 square feet, the main home is a study in design that makes the most of its natural setting. With vaulted ceilings and tons of large windows to embrace the vistas outside, sightlines extend into forever, blending the line between indoor and outdoor connection. The design also pulls through natural light and unspools it strategically, lending an undeniably light and airy feel to this expansive home.
Steel beam construction and attention to design detail add visual interest throughout. This home features a huge primary suite with floor-to-ceiling windows that frame the views beyond, along with access to the deck and Juliet balcony through elegant French doors. There is also a smartly styled and spacious in-law suite, along with a studio, perfect for working from home, exercise or for pursuing creative passions.
The kitchen is a home cook’s dream, with tons of prep space, quartz countertops and stainless-steel appliances.
The second floor is home to three sizeable bedrooms and two bathrooms, along with an expansive 2000 square foot great room, featuring soaring 22-foot ceilings, celebrating all the space offers in its entirety.
There is also a heated six-garage garage, perfect for guests or to store all your outdoor toys.
Beyond the main house, beachfront bliss exists in the three-season, two-bedroom beach house. At 1200 square feet, this lovely home offers a dreamy sunroom, a dining pavilion with an Indonesian teak table, and outdoor kitchen, creating the ultimate environment for al fresco dining.
Imagine whipping up a gourmet feast, sourced with numerous fresh, local (local like down the road) ingredients, while sipping on one of the many fine vintages produced in the area vineyards, all while taking in the beachfront vistas in the distance. Sublime. It gives a whole new meaning and style to farm-to-table.
However, if you’d prefer to eat inside, there is a large kitchen with quartz countertops, stainless-steel appliances and counter seating for a crowd.
If there was ever a property that shouts ‘seize the day’ this is the one. Close to the amenities that make the PEC lifestyle enviable, tons of stylish space for you and yours, beachfront paradise, as well as substantial rental income potential, this is an opportunity that only appears once in a rare while.
