Chandos Lake Cottage
North Kawartha, Ontario
Situated on the original Chandos Estates property, this cottage replaced an old single-storey cottage that was hidden from view by a large perimeter hedge. The hedge was removed to reveal wonderful views of the lake, and a new home was designed to take advantage of this and connect with the landscaped spaces and the dock on the waterfront.
The cottage features large social spaces designed to host the extended family. A spacious kitchen and dining room lead to the screened porch by way of a large sliding door that pockets into the wall. An outdoor kitchen with a built-in grill and smoker is adjacent to the screened porch, protected by a roof and privacy screen. And a large deck is positioned in the same place as the original cottage deck, and provides both full sun and shade throughout the day.
