Centered on the 5.5-acre private island is a 4,914-square-foot home designed by architect David Gillett and built by area craftsmen in 2003 for the owner, a former National Hockey League player. The landmark home, with elegant Muskoka style and finished in local natural Muskoka materials, is encompassed by lake views from every window.
With over 3000 feet of shoreline, 2 sand beaches and 100' water depth at the north end of the island, one will find the best fishing in the Muskokas, a haven for walleye.

All of the island's buildings are an updated take on Old Muskoka design. As David Gillett, the architect says "We envisioned the complete group of new buildings in the tradition of the grand old 'camps' of the Adriondacks and the cottage compounds that have dotted the Muskoka lakes for a century." Gillett took inspiration from the old buildings that would be replaced and designed a collection of buildings that celebrate the breezy solitude and quiet privacy of summertime island life with wide verandahs, detailed woodwork and cool shaded spaces.
The classic Muskoka 7 bedroom cottage is nestled into the level landscape and is encompassed by lake views from every window, finished with a timeless elegant Muskoka style. The cottage is only 25' on any side to the water's edge. The interior features marble counters, wood floors, Muskoka granite fireplace, marble counters, stainless appliances with Sub-Zero refrigerator and Wolf stove. There is a large screened in dining room that overlooks the beautiful views of lake Joseph. Cottage also includes an office and den to accommodate work, or further guests. Boathouse has 3 slips and additional boatport with living quarters above with a Queen Bed.
Bunkie has been newly rebuilt and has grandfathered proportions and an entertainment center of its own as well as sleeping for 4.
A Caribbean sand beach and crystal clear Lake Joseph waters surround for the epitome of island privacy and relaxation. The beach is a perfect location for the kids to play and swim.
