The surprise of a lifetime fell upon these long-time lottery participants in last year's Princess Margaret Cancer Centre Home Lottery. Fully furnished and boasting three bedrooms, this stunning waterfront cottage on Peninsula Lake is a real winner.
The lottery winners and new homeowners are delighted with their new property, which was designed by Linwood Custom Homes. Built on an existing footprint, the cottage overlooks the lake and is a short walk from Hidden Valley ski slopes.
Inside the eye-catching cedar-sided cottage, an impressive open-concept living area looks out large, lakeside windows. The kitchen's dining bar and cabinetry, by AyA Kitchens, enjoy natural light from a large cupola at the peak of the building. A master bedroom outfitted in the same beach theme as the living room is on the mainfloor
A large family room on the ground floor features an adjoining games room. Three sliding glass doors open to the front yard, overlooking the lake. Two bedrooms are located on the ground floor, one furnished with bunk beds and one guest space for visitors.
Down by the water, a screened-in gazebo is the perfect place to relax or visit with friends. Its users can look up at the cottage and its magnificence as its many windows reflect the sunset or admire the peaceful lake while listening to music. Some of the family's favourite spots on the property include enjoying morning coffee in the sunny great room, the impressive lake views from the ground floor deck and the dockside gazebo.
Since it has already been a family tradition for over ten years, this family plans to continue supporting the lottery, for a good cause.
