The cottage was meticulously built using high-quality commercial-grade materials to guarantee both durability and insulation. Its solid concrete exterior walls and floors provide robust structural integrity while maximizing thermal efficiency. The electrical system is designed to handle a 200-amp capacity for the main server panel and 100 amps for the sub panels, ensuring a dependable power supply. Energy efficiency was prioritized through the use of well-insulated exterior walls and a stucco finish that not only enhances insulation but also adds an appealing aesthetic. Additionally, the cottage features high-end windows and doors that contribute to insulation and overall quality.
Step inside, and you’ll be greeted by the exquisite ambiance created by engineered flooring, solid pine doors, and trim that perfectly complement the luxurious finish. Designed with relaxation in mind, the cottage offers a four-season, three-bedroom, two-storey layout with a loft area. The interior boasts a spacious open concept area that encompasses a newly renovated kitchen with a peninsula complete with quartz countertops, dining area, and a great room with soaring 20-foot ceilings.

The kitchen also has a dishwasher rough-in with power, water supply, and a drain. This south-facing cottage allows an abundance of natural light to permeate the space through extensive windows and skylights.
