Once the retreat of a Latvian family, this expansive property in Ontario, Canada, is now a fully modernized estate suitable for multigenerational living. The historic home was renovated down to the studs in 2006, with contemporary additions including wall-to-wall windows, a cedar roof, reclaimed wood floors, and a two-level atrium. Original features, such as the fieldstone fireplaces-which were hand-built from stone mined on the property-and the circular staircase, add a decidedly authentic character to this heirloom residence. The multi-acre grounds also include several detached cottages, offering guest accommodations amidst rustic nature.
Perched on pink granite cliffs, a series of prefab pavilions offer a luxe, back-to-nature experience in one of Tasmania’s oldest National Parks.
