Plus, a cou­ple more ski coun­try stun­ners

Richmond Hill Post - - Dream Homes -

Per­haps the best (or maybe most chal­leng­ing) thing about shop­ping for a recre­ational prop­erty is the sheer va­ri­ety. If a con­tem­po­rary style chalet isn’t ex­actly your speed, there are var­i­ous uniquely de­signed homes to con­sider, namely log cab­ins (like the two beau­ti­ful ones at right). Whether you’re in the mar­ket for some­thing a lit­tle more se­cluded or some­thing with a lot of char­ac­ter, you’re guar­an­teed to find some­thing beau­ti­ful.

A lit­tle his­tory les­son

How about this for a story? 20 years ago, two 1870 log cab­ins were trans­planted to a Colling­wood prop­erty, then com­bined to make the home you see now. Sit­u­ated on five acres of land, this $1,595,000 home fea­tures an open kitchen area with 19th cen­tury Welsh cab­i­nets and a large, screened-in porch that’s ideal for sum­mer din­ners. 495395 2 Grey Road

When in Cale­don

Lo­cated in idyl­lic Cale­don Hills, this $749,000 log home was built with the na­ture lover in mind; the Credit River fronts the house, and the Bruce Trail is ac­ces­si­ble from the rear. In­side, the dual floor-to-ceil­ing fire­places and the ex­otic African floor­ing and stair­case make up the place’s high­lights. 1511 Forks of the Credit Road
