Welcome to Tallpines – a spectacular contemporary four-season cottage built on the shores of Soyers Lake, one of Haliburton’s finest lakes located on the five-lake chain and known for being both quiet and clean. This property is conveniently located between Haliburton and Minden approximately 2.5 hours from Toronto. It offers year round access with easy accessibility, a gentle sloping lot and over 300’ feet of unobstructed water frontage.
The home was designed with cottage life in mind – the entire floor plan was laid out so that the principal rooms have expansive views of the lake. The home features 4-bedrooms, 4-baths, 4,200 sq ft of living space, a large eat-in kitchen, spacious great room with a large modern STUV limestone fireplace and walnut ceilings, a covered outdoor eating area with automatic screening provision, and a large recreational area in the basement.
This exceptionally rare lot is filled with beautiful tall pines that lightly shade the property providing the perfect cottage setting with ultimate big lake views, similar to Algonquin Park. The property has been landscaped with large armor stone with several entertaining areas including an outdoor dining area, firepit and walking trails. The lakeside entertaining area provides the perfect setting for those warm summer nights including a sitting area, large dock and ‘boathouse’ that includes a hot tub, sauna, outdoor shower, and storage area.
The exterior of the property was designed for durability to withstand the elements and age gracefully with the land. The metal-paneling and composite wood siding offer the perfect contrast to the large limestone fireplace. The floor-to-ceiling wood clad, aluminum windows provide exceptional natural light throughout the entire home.
Designed and built by Tact Architecture, this home is not only stunning but it is also an eco-friendly home with an emphasis on sustainability and energy efficiency. The house was designed with a lake loop geo-thermal heat pump offering both heating and cooling, radiant flooring throughout, and electric back-up. The upfront costs were intended to provide years of cost savings and a healthy living environment.
The home features all of the modern home conveniences that you would expect including a multi-zone in-ceiling speaker system, home theatre system with a 22′ foot drop-down high resolution screen, Starlink high-speed internet, durable stain-resistant carpet in the great room, walnut feature walls, and so much more.
