Luxury Horseshoe Valley Retreat
A private haven in a sought after enclave of executive homes can be found at 1 Alpine Way in Horseshoe Valley. Upgraded and maintained to the highest standards, this family home boasts light-filled rooms, amazing space for guests, and a back yard oasis that will make you want to skip the Muskoka cottage and enjoy your own exclusive retreat.
The home itself is elevated from the street, hidden behind mature trees and elegant landscaping that lines the natural stone steps to the covered front porch. Just off the foyer to the right is the welcoming family room, a grand space with pine floors and exposed timber beams. A triple garden door walkout that floods the room with natural light leads you to the covered deck and pool out back. Another walkout takes you to the side screened-in porch, a perfect spot to enjoy a morning coffee or evening drink protected from the bugs. On those chillier spring or fall days, this space is warmed by a ceiling mounted heater.
The focal point of the room is the field stone surround on the gas fireplace that reaches to the top of the vaulted ceiling. Just off the family room is a cozy den/living room, also with pine floors and timber trim.
The open kitchen/dining space is the natural hub of the home with plenty of room for both intimate gatherings and large family meals. The contemporary white cabinets are nicely complemented by the granite counters and tile backsplash. The peninsula incorporates a breakfast bar and built-in wine rack. The home chef has high end professional grade appliances to work with including a gas cook top, a gas convection oven, and a panelled fridge integrated to blend in with the cabinetry. The pine floors continue here into the dining area where there is another triple garden door walkout to the back deck.
The main floor also has a good sized bedroom, currently purposed as an extra den/home office with a pantry closet hidden behind a pocket door and large window that overlooks the back yard. The main floor is nicely finished off with a 2-piece powder room and a laundry room with access to both the attached garage and back yard.
A wide hardwood staircase takes you the upper level and 4 amazing bedrooms including the master suite, set apart from the other rooms. Straight from the pictures of a home magazine, this sunken space is set behind double doors with new pine floors. Several windows provide lots of natural light while a gas fireplace gives the room a bed & breakfast feel. The 4-piece ensuite bath features palatial marble floors that match the marble vanity counter & surround on the sumptuous jet tub.
The 2nd bedroom is quite large, and could be used as a 2nd master suite, boasting new pine floors, charming dormer windows, and his & her walk-in closets. The other 2 bedrooms are similar and size and shape, both with dormer windows and double closets. The main 4-piece bath on this level is luxurious in its own right with marble floors and counter, a large tile & glass walk-in shower, and a relaxing deep soaker tub.
There is more family friendly space on the lower level, including a versatile recreation room. On this level you’ll also find a guest bedroom, a 3-piece bath with heated tile floors, a workshop, and a large mudroom/foyer with a separate entrance to the garage. The garage itself is perfect for the discerning car collector or home mechanic, built with extra high ceilings to accommodate a car lift.
Outside a resort style haven awaits, the centrepiece being the inground saltwater pool. The accompanying pool house has a convenient change room, and there is plenty of lounging space on the pool deck and surrounding stone patios. The entire property is landscaped for privacy with lots of large trees, perennial beds, and an inground sprinkler system to maintain it all.
1 Alpine Way is situated on a unique property in Horseshoe Valley with no neighbours behind and easy access to 4-season recreation including golf, skiing and trails. Horseshoe Resort is just minute away while amenities in both Orillia and Barrie are both close at hand. This home has been extremely well maintained with recent updates like fresh paint and new shingles in October 2017. It is turn-key ready to enjoy all year round in a desirable area of executive homes.
