In the fall of 2008, Fitzmaurice Brothers were approached to design and build a new cottage on a family property on Squirrel Island in the historic “Millionaire’s Row” region of Lake Muskoka. The job called for the demolition of an existing building on the site and the design and construction of a new cottage in keeping with the old-world feeling of the surrounding environment.
Featured as the cover story of the 2014 issue of Cottage Country HIDEAWAYS Magazine, This stunning 6000 square foot cottage contains 3 lavish bedroom suites and a large communal family room, kitchenette and laundry on the lower level. On the main floor is an extensive master suite and executive office, a huge great-room with a large masonry fireplace at each end and a centrally located custom built bar area. The well equipped chef’s kitchen leads to the inviting formal dining area through a thoughtfully located service pantry and is also connected to the bar area. The centrally located custom stairway is well lit by a large two-storey window providing a view to the boathouse and lake. The owners also had the foresight to install a centrally located lift.
As with any island job, it was a logistical challenge but make that much easier by our close working relationship with the local barging operators and our network of reputable sub-trades.
