"Quarrywood", a superbly crafted family compound is located on a very private stretch of shoreline (over 1,400 feet of deeded waterfront) literally moments from the famed Ojibway Club. It is the handsome combined efforts of the owner, a committed Georgian Bayer, the architect, also a local cottager and the contractor, a well- regarded builder.
The project consists of a main three bedroom cottage and a two bedroom sleeping cottage both sited on high ground overlooking a perfectly protected harbour with a natural sand beach. The structures were built with the view to withstand the weather extremes of the Georgian Bay climate: concrete based siding guaranteed for 50 years, high quality stains with a 15 year guarantee, chimneys built entirely of local cut stone granite and double hung custom Thermopane windows throughout.
The main cottage (approximately 2,400 sq. ft.) a compilation design effort with the owner and James MacDonald, Architect, is irregularly shaped with the an open plan living-dining-kitchen pod connected to a 3 bedroom sleeping pod by a long screened porch with sliding glass panels. The entire space is flooded with natural light..........this airy quality is further enhanced by the clear maple flooring, the blond pine wall paneling and the alabaster uplighting.
The kitchen is equipped to entertain large numbers. It features extensive counter space, wall mounted ovens, a double stainless steel sink, a separate pantry with 2 refrigerators and built-in halogen lighting. The adjoining screened porch provides for "al fresco" dining with a series of sliding glass panels.
The western pod of the structure houses the master bedroom with 3pc en-suite, 2 additional bedrooms each with sleeping lofts, a 3 pc bath with footed tub and a skylit laundry area.
The approximately 830 sq. ft. sleeping cottage in constructed to the same exacting standards as the main building. It features open plan living and dining anchored with a floor to ceiling granite stone fireplace. Guests can enjoy a measure of self sufficiency from the main cottage with a fully equipped galley kitchen, 2 bedrooms with separate walk-outs to cedar decks and an open air shower.
