A Muskoka Classic,

BY MARTHA UNIACKE BREEN

N

estled into a granite slope high above the water, this sprawling cottage, with architecture by Richard Wengle and interior design by John David Edison, gives little hint on first glance of just how big it really is. Yet every detail has been carefully considered to make the big, beautiful view of Lake Joseph – and the utmost in comfort while enjoying that view – the main object. The topography of the site, in keeping with a lot of prime Muskoka waterfront property, features a steep slope that rambles down to some 470 feet of frontage. To make the best use

of the big six-plus-acre property’s breathtaking views, Wengle’s guiding principle was to spread the building out over a series of “pods” or pavilions, joined by bridges and stairways. “The building really reacts to the site,” Wengle says. “The view itself really helped us establish the parameters of the cottage.” When you first alight by the garage – a considerable structure in its own right, with three bays, two storeys and room for a gym, sports court and roomy guest quarters – a stone path leads through the woods to a relatively modest entry “pod.” In what will prove


F E AT U R E L I S T I N G

To make the best use of the big six-plus-acre property’s breathtaking views, Wengle’s guiding principle was to spread the building out over a series of “pods” or pavilions, joined by bridges and stairways. to be a repeating motif in both the exterior cladding and Edison’s subtle but engaging interiors, the entry pavilion is clad in grey cut-stone boards and black metal trim, providing a contemporary complement to the rugged Muskoka landscape. It also provides a clean backdrop to the landscape through huge, floor-toceiling curtain walls throughout. From here, the cottage swells to stairs that lead down to the full two-storey expanse that is the main “pod” of the building, with great room at one side, kitchen and dining areas and beyond, through subtly slatted doors, the Muskoka room at the cottage’s far end. A huge swath of windows stretches from one end of the room to the other, yet each area gains unexpected warmth – even a surprising coziness, for such a large space – from natural, softly toned materials and details. For example, a swooping ceiling treatment of downward-curving panels evokes billowing sails, while the Jean-Paul Gaultier-designed modular sofa in the sunken living area invites cuddling up en famille to watch TV or just gaze out at the water. The Muskoka room itself deserves special mention, for its gleeful

reinvention of this Muskoka cottage mainstay: windows on two sides fold back completely to let in the breeze, while barnboard wall cladding gives it a certain rusticity. From that point on it’s pure modern luxury, with a big wood-burning fireplace and strikingly patterned granite floor tiles. A stairway discreetly panelled in

translucent onyx next to the living area leads to the third and most private “pod,” the principal bedroom wing. A double-sided fireplace warms both bedroom and ensuite, while exquisite details add more coziness: wall cladding of four-inch-by-eight-foot stone tiles that resemble barnboard in the ensuite, and a built-in slatted canopy over the bed.

For designer Edison, what makes the space special is the care taken in its construction, and the combination of contemporary finishes and references to classic Muskoka style. At water’s edge, the boathouse is designed as much for entertaining as for housing boats. “Boathouses these days are no longer just utilitarian spaces,” says Taylor Moore, president of Sherwood North, which built the cottage. “In the old days in Muskoka, they were purely work/ storage and utility spaces, but now they double as entertainment and leisure space.” Along with another comfortable guest space, it’s equipped with bar, bath, sound and entertainment systems, and a unique platform-lift boat storage facility: boats are lowered into the water at the push of a button, allowing for the full boat deck level to be used as an entertainment or play space. For designer Edison, what makes the space special is the care taken in its construction, and the combination of contemporary finishes and references to classic Muskoka style. “Every design process is an exploration,” he says, “and it will be interesting to see how this project will age well as the years go by.”

SUSTAINABLY ONTARIO:

Goin

Green In The Modern Market By DC Rutherford

I

bought a house recently, a Craftsman built in 1910 in a rural community. The region is one many of you will find familiar – it’s susceptible to the unpredictable swings of a four-season climate. The polars of stifling summer heat and humidity and crippling winter storms are both what make the area a delight and a challenge. I felt as a 21st-century homeowner it was my civic responsibility to reduce the carbon footprint of my new abode. But where to begin?

My first inclination was to pad my roof with solar panels, build a greenhouse, order some goats, and ensure the integrity of the existing well and septic tank – though this seemed more inclined to apocalyptic fears as opposed to a desire for sustainable living. But the breadth of sustainable practices turned out to be beyond my imagination.

Continuing to explore the possibilities of sustainability within Ontario landscapes is Baldo Gucciardi, CEO and co-founder of International Landscaping Inc. Since ILI’s beginning in the early ’90s, the team has maintained a focus on testing, developing, and adapting sustainable practices in their work. Baldo shared how the team took initiative within the past decade to shift to zero-emissions equipment, which established ILI as “the largest landscape company in Canada to provide electric maintenance services.” It was a landmark achievement for the company, and since that time they have expanded into automated (robotic) service equipment and mobile solar charging stations. ILI encourages and trains their staff to see the value of "green waste" and the debris, leaves, and grass clippings that are gathered in their day-to-day work are composted at their facility and returned back to the sites they service as new rich soil. More recently the ILI team has been developing digital tools for both their teams and clients, which produce metrics that aid in further reducing their carbon footprint.

ILI encourages and trains their staff to see the value of "green waste" and the debris, leaves, and grass clippings that are gathered in their day-to-day work are composted at their facility and returned back to the sites they service as new rich soil. ILI’s Landscape Designer, Sharon Carlson notes, “Sustainability has really grown in terms of the services we offer with zero-emission; all electrical equipment reduces our carbon footprint. It’s more friendly for not only our staff, in terms of the health benefit of reduced noise or not inhaling any fumes or handling gasoline or the fuels, but it’s also better for the clients because they’re not getting any of those fuels in the air.”

Guelph Solar is another GTA-based company whose ambitious approach to sustainability is setting the pace for the industry, led by president Steve Dyck, “a dynamic leader who wants the best for his customers, his employees, our province, and our planet.” Carlson continues, “Some of the [initiatives] that we offer are more eco-conscious and -minded in terms of weed control and winter treatments. On our construction and advancement side, there are lots of different ways that sustainability can apply. Some of the big things are really promoting to our clients using local materials; anything from stone, local wood, local plants, and not just that the plant is grown locally, but also whenever possible using live plant species. In general, they’re more adapted to our environment, our winters and so with that in mind, they can also require a little bit less maintenance, maybe less watering. [And] looking at ways that we can manage water on a site; trying to incorporate ways water can be filtered back into the ground, back into subsurface reservoirs and back into the water table.” Guelph Solar is another GTA-based company whose ambitious approach to sustainability

is setting the pace for the industry, led by president Steve Dyck, “a dynamic leader who wants the best for his customers, his employees, our province, and our planet.” Guelph Solar has been installing solar power since 2009. Dyck and his company are truly dedicated to the community, active in the Citizens Climate Lobby, and he even was a candidate in the 2011 provincial election in Ontario. Whether it is Steve’s commitment to our community by supporting a host of charitable and neighbourhood-building efforts or his passion for making environmentally aware choices, you will find Steve ready to help you go green. Guelph Solar’s holistic approach goes beyond their practical work. They also believe in social responsibility and boast such leading practices as guaranteeing a living wage for employees and contributing to innumerable charitable initiatives.

Some simple construction methods can have an enormous impact on the sustainability and durability of a home or cottage. 26

Aaron Miller of HummingbirdHill Homes agrees. The company has been a leader in holistic building in Ontario. “We are both PassiveHouse™ and WELL™ AP certified and work with the leading architectural firms to fuse together stunning architecture with materials and methods that promote health and wellness

Miller also notes, “Some simple construction methods can have an enormous impact on the sustainability and durability of a home or cottage such as mitigating air leakage, transitioning towards renewable energy vs. the burning of oil and gas, optimizing options with glass and orientation of natural light

for both our clients and the environment. We can now measure [the] embodied carbon of different material options and help guide selections that are both costeffective and environmentally friendly.”

that reduce unwanted heat in the summer yet allow this passive heat to warm the space in the winter.”


Planning and longevity are just part of a sustainable living initiative - a tacit understanding of environmental impact is essential to responsible building. Planning and longevity are just part of a sustainable living initiative—a tacit understanding of environmental impact is essential to responsible building. Ashley Smith of Enviroshake, an eco-friendly roofing manufacturer, asserts, “We recognize that demand for cedar roofing is a major factor in deforestation. We are driven to provide a sustainable alternative to natural cedar without sacrificing its timeless beauty. That’s why Enviroshake was formulated using 95% recycled materials to combine the authentic appeal of cedar shakes with the engineered longevity and performance that natural cedar simply can’t match.” Smith adds, “Each Enviroshake roof provides property owners with the peace of mind offered by a market-leading engineered material as well as the knowledge that they have made a stand to protect our planet’s natural resources. Enviroshake roofs also generate significantly less waste than a natural cedar shake roof with a waste factor of typically less than 10%. Compare that with the 20% or higher waste factor of a natural cedar shake roof. Further, water runoff from an Enviroshake roof is nontoxic and even meets WHO drinking water standards. In contrast, the chemicals used to treat natural cedar roofs render their water runoff non-potable.”

and professional services firm focused on water safety, “As alternative housing models are pursued (community housing initiatives, tiny homes, modular homes, etc.), opportunities for communal servicing are available including cluster systems, centralized disposal systems, greywater systems, and more. The sustainability benefit of centralized onsite sewage treatment and disposal versus individual well and septic systems for each home is that the sewage effluent plume can be isolated in one area away from water sources (such as a neighbour's well).”

The scope and breadth of innovation in home sustainability promises the future of our homes and our planet is in good hands. According to Kathryn Stasiuk Riddell of KSR Engineering, an engineering

“Steel and concrete production account for a good percentage of global greenhouse gas emissions (approximately 8% and 7% respectively). While concrete tanks are the fan favourite in many parts of

Photo: Enviroshake

Ontario, alternate tank materials may offer an overall reduction in greenhouse gas emissions for new installations. A life-cycle analysis of HDPE (plastic) tanks could be compared to concrete tanks. Plastic septic tanks have not been around as long as concrete though, so we aren’t sure yet if they can last as long as a concrete tank can.” All of which is to say: My understanding of sustainable living was a fraction of what the practice includes. Knowledge is power and I was powerless in my own endeavour to be more sustainable. Educating yourself with the assistance of experienced local business owners is the best way to protect you and your home from whatever the future has to offer.

Kentucky mule B

y brewing a blend of three gingers from Nigeria, Cochin and the Ivory Coast, we have created an award-winning ginger beer that has been highly acclaimed by gastronomes and critics alike. Not too sweet on the palate and with a deep, long-lasting ginger character, it's perfect in a Dark & Stormy, Moscow Mule or simply as a soft drink on its own. A distinct, fresh ginger taste predominates. It is refreshing and clean tasting without being overly sweet. As the liquid passes through the palate, the ginger will fill the whole mouth, leaving a warmth at the back of the throat. To achieve the fiery, full-bodied taste of our Ginger Beer we selected three types of ginger for their complementary, yet distinctive, flavour profiles. From Cochin in India, we source a variety that lends a warm and spicy flavour. From the Ivory Coast, we get a fresh green ginger that has an incredible lemongrass freshness. Finally, our Nigerian ginger brings a deep, intense flavour to the blend.


INGREDIENTS: > 3/4 Fever-Tree Premium Ginger Beer > 1/4 Kentucky bourbon > Garnish: lime wedge or mint sprig

Method: Add the bourbon and squeeze of lime to a Mule mug or a highball glass. Fill the mug or glass with ice and top with Fever-Tree Premium Ginger Beer. Garnish with lime wedge or fresh mint sprig.

Here YOU MIGHT ASK, HOW IS a MOSCOW MULE DIFFERENT THAN a KENTUCKY MULE? The answer is simple. The original Moscow Mule recipe is made with vodka, while here it is made with whisky. Try tequila for a Jalisco Mule.

A GENERATIONAL ADDRESS BY DC RUTHERFORD

W

hen William Botsford Jarvis and his wife, Mary, settled in what would become known as the Rosedale Estate in the early 1800s, Canada—and Toronto for that matter—were barely ideas on the periphery of the Commonwealth. So named for its luxurious wild roses that freckled the property, the affluent neighbourhood that grew around it became Rosedale, one of Canada’s most desirable addresses from nearly the moment Mary titled it. It has been preserved by time and landscape, owing its bucolic suburbia to bordering ravines and committed denizens. It is a beautiful anachronism, maintaining its character and singularity as the city and country grew around it. Its architecture and construct are as timeless as its sanctuary, and its newest addition is built upon—and builds upon— the traditions that make Rosedale so unquestionably unique.

30

SOUTH | FALL 2021

Rosedale will soon add 7 Dale to its traditions. “We wanted to respect the area while borrowing certain elements from it to create something entirely new,” notes Josh Shteiman, VP of Development Operations for Platinum Vista, who oversaw the project. “The front facade facing Dale integrates a heritage planter wall that was originally part of the home at 7 Dale. We are also restoring the original teahouse that will be integrated into Janet Rosenberg’s landscape design and become a shared amenity for the residents.” 7 Dale is the culmination of a peerless collaboration between some of Toronto’s most sought-after talents. Siamak Hariri, Allessandro Munge, and Janet Rosenberg are world-renowned artists, whose partnership has resulted in a residence that promises to not just continue Rosedale’s

legacy but define it for a generation. “Each collaborator is at the top of their class in their own right. The cohesion and synergy between the 7 Dale team were impressive. It was almost like a relay race with the baton passed from one person to the other, seamlessly,” says Shteiman. Hariri is the architect behind some of our most treasured edifices and residences including the Art Gallery of Ontario, The Ontario Pavilion for Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games, and the Richard Ivey School of Business, among others. Munge is one of the world’s preeminent interior designers, boasting work at addresses in New York, Chicago, Las Vegas, and Halifax, though his work and influences are most prominent in Toronto where nearly every part of the cityscape bears his hand. Janet Rosenberg is a peerless landscape architect whose work—built upon a legacy of sustainability, functionality, and respect for nature— adorns Canada’s most precious locales. Together, the three represent a collective that is responsible for the aesthetic of many of our most celebrated cultural landmarks, and 7 Dale is the unique beneficiary of their collaboration. Shteiman adds that Toronto developments “are doing things out of the ordinary [...] 7 Dale has a heavy focus on both design and sustainability. There are many green elements implemented into the residence like the restoration of the ravine and energy efficiency building components—a smart design that fits seamlessly within the neighbourhood, yet offers buyers the opportunity of not compromising on the luxuries they’re used to in their homes.” The result is truly singular, and yet entirely Toronto, “and this development provides a rare opportunity for people to live in Rosedale without the maintenance or upkeep of living in an older home. We wanted to create residences that offer the luxury of living in a large space in Rosedale that provides the amenities and lifestyle of a high-end hotel/condo. Residents will have access to a first-class spa, gym, yoga studio, and 24-hour executive concierge.” Come Fall 2022, this could be home— the Toronto of yesterday and tomorrow, in the heart of the city. www.7dale.com

True, this sensory overload (in the best possible way) may be slightly elevated by my impulsive Bath and Bodyworks Candle haul. But even undeterred by overpriced 3-wick bliss, parented by Mother Nature herself, the natural, autumnal aroma has arrived. And I am here for it. Goodbye, smoggy heatwaves. So long, malevolent wasp nests. ’Til next year, sugary seltzers. For we are entering a season of sophistication. A season

By Brooke Madden

of colourful landscapes, a season of butternut squash and other savoury soups, a season of children returning to the classroom, a season of giving thanks for (among other things) children returning to the classroom. Perhaps, most notably, a season of boozy elevation. Say farewell to your seltzers, radlers, coolers and frozen fiascos, and indulge with me in some of the best wines Ontario has to offer this season. I’ve yet to discover an autumnal pairing more calming, more well-deserved, more joyful, more emblematic of tranquility, peace, and a long, long exhale, more poetic even, more harmonious than a crisp fall day, and a large glass of wine. And while, with no judgement (though perhaps mild envy) from me, your favourite bottle can be enjoyed on the couch in front

of a Harry Potter marathon; sometimes, it’s best to go all out. And with the virus that shall not be named subsiding, certain Ontario wineries have begun offering exciting, educational, tasteful (no pun intended) experiences this Fall/Winter season. Gather your partner, your girlfriends, your sister, or any other sommelier-intraining you may be acquainted with. Adorn yourselves with blanket scarves, flannels, and beanies. Enjoy the scenic drive to wine country. Support your local vineyards. Educate yourself about your favourite beverages, and maybe get a little tipsy along the way. Soak up that remarkably fresh autumnal aroma that pairs so decadently with a glass of vino. Because the vineyards I’m going to introduce you to are colourful, creative, and thriving at this time of year.

From November onward, Megalomaniac is excited to be offering a Winter Wine Bar. Though not an indoor, fully-heated experience, a cozy, wine-bar patio option will be available, overlooking the vineyard’s stunning views. In addition, Megalomaniac is excited to introduce their new tasting rooms. “We’ve taken multiple spaces within the winery and turned them into private (or small group setting) tasting rooms. Guests have a selection of four different tastings to choose from. Each of the tasting rooms is designed with breathtaking views in mind,” explains Erin.

P

erhaps one of the most iconic vineyards in the province, Peller Estates has historically offered exclusive experiences for wine lovers. Located in Niagara on the Lake, this winery and restaurant has creatively adapted to this last couple of years’ one and only* constant: change. *It should be noted that the quality and superb deliciousness of a glass of Peller Estates wine is also one of life’s constants. Year round, Peller Estates proudly offers their “Greatest Winery Tour.” Peller invites you to “immerse

yourself in everything our world class winery has to offer from vine to cellar on this leisurely and engaging tour experience.” The tour begins with a glass of sparkling wine, taking you through the underground barrel cellar, exposing you to Niagara's only igloo-like lounge, the 10Below Icewine Lounge, and concluding in Peller’s stunning boutique - the tour is dubbed the “greatest” for a reason. Further experiences that are not limited to the summer months include a Seated Tasting Experience, where you’ll be able to select three wines and engage for 40 minutes with a wine consultant to learn more about your favourite glasses, and aid you in realizing your at-home wine rack dreams.

If you’re feeling festive, it should be noted that Megalomaniac is planning on curating a robust, impressive offering of items for Christmas shoppers this year. “How great would it be to come to Niagara, do your shopping, and then while you’re here, hang out at the Winter Wine Bar and enjoy a beautiful glass of wine looking over the vineyard?” Erin suggests. To me, that sounds infinitely better than a trip to a crowded Eaton Centre during the holiday season!

If you’re looking to gift an experience this holiday season, a trip to the Peller Estates Winery & Restaurant is sure to impress. “We will most likely offer specialty dining events during the fall/winter months too, depending on COVID restrictions.

We have created wine experiences at our newly built ‘Veranda’ overlooking the vineyards that run about 45 minutes and allow our wine consultants a deeper conversation and tasting experiences of back vintages and current portfolio with each guest.” Architecturally influenced by Italian Renaissance design, a visit to Two Sisters Vineyards is a visit to a European oasis, in the heart of wine country. “It was a pure passion project for our family that has evolved into a very special, personal and rewarding endeavour,” say the sisters.

Melissa and Angela proudly maintain a personal connection with each element of the vineyard - part of what makes an experience at Two Sisters particularly special. “When guests come to spend their time with us, it is like us inviting them into our home and all of our team members understand the importance and dedication to the customer experience.” From the way the winemaker crafts their wines, to the ingredients in the dishes, to how the candles are arranged in their barrel cellar, the sisters are involved to create sensory, educational experiences.

In addition to the Veranda experiences, the sisters are working diligently to perfect their tour program, launching late fall. “We have a private and corporate events program that includes both wine and culinary experiences and can be customizable to the wants and needs of the host. We have planned exciting masterclasses that will have guests tasting through cellar wines together with our TSV esteemed estate sommeliers in our intimate barrel cellar. These experiences are very wine focused and educational. Winemaker dinners have been scheduled to take place this fall and winter which will showcase our culinary creations from our popular winery restaurant, Kitchen76, carefully paired with our range of library and current wines by our winemaker, Adam Pearce, who will host the dinner.”

s one of Canada’s most awarded wineries, Jackson-Triggs has made a real impact on the Canadian wine scene. With an emphasis on inclusivity, diversity, and fostering a brand that includes all Canadians, Jackson-Triggs is one of my personal favourite wineries to support – not only for their commitments to better the Canadian wine community, but for their seriously delicious products! I had the opportunity to speak with Abby Wood of the Jackson-Triggs Niagara Estate to learn a little more about what the winery has to offer this upcoming Fall/Winter season. Abby told

me about their Wine Club subscription, and how it can elevate your upcoming visitor experience. “We offer really great experiences for our Wine Club members. It’s like a magazine subscription, but instead of a magazine, you get wine delivered to your door, and complimentary experiences throughout the year,” says Abby. Wine club members experience exclusive perks like holiday dinners as well. “We always do a holiday party for members - a seven-course dinner, all complimentary. Members get the winery to themselves, and can explore different food stations,” she explains. If you’re not a Wine Club member, there is still plenty to enjoy at Jackson-Triggs.

Jackson-Triggs is also hoping to offer workshops this year - a Thanksgiving floral centrepiece workshop, and a wreath-making workshop for the holidays. According to Abby, the “Explore Your Senses” experience is not one to miss. “We do these quite a lot for corporate bookings. It’s a stationed dinner event. You’ll get a map of the winery when you arrive, the full menu, and there’s a wine bar at each food station so you can try multiple pairings throughout the evening. The decor is always unique. You really get a lot of flexibility here with such a large facility to be able to accommodate individual wants!” says Abby.

f you’re anything like me, you’re a huge fan of Wayne Gretzky Estates’ wines, beers, and whiskies. I’ll admit, I’m not a hockey person (I know, I know, revoke my citizenship). But if I can get my hands on a decanted glass of Wayne Gretzky Whisky Oak Aged Red (a seamless blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Cab Sauv) while the game is on - I’m going to have a very nice time indeed. While my hockey-playing boyfriend and I appreciate the acclaimed legend for different reasons, a date to Wayne Gretzky Estates is always a hit for the both of us. “There’s always something happening at Wayne Gretzky

Estates in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Choose from wine and whisky tastings with a twist, interactive classes, memorable meals, festive fetes, icy winter fun on our skating rink and so much more!” says Wayne Gretzky Estates. In addition to the aforementioned awesomeness, Wayne Gretzky Estates is also home to a whisky bar, where patrons can enjoy their experience “from the stands” - an excellent way to warm up after winter fun outdoors.

Another exciting event JacksonTriggs enjoys is the “Mom Market,” a large event with multiple pop-up vendors. Abby is looking forward to their Halloween-themed adaptation of the traditional Mom Market on October 23rd. Kid friendly, with a screen projecting Halloween films, it's geared so that parents can relax with their favourite glass of Jackson-Triggs wine and browse the local vendors.

t’s rare that properties come up for sale on the shore of Puslinch Lake, a hidden gem of a community just fifteen minutes outside Kitchener-Waterloo, and less than an hour down the highway from Toronto. And it’s even rarer that they appear in the multiple listing directory.

LIVE THE COTTAGE LIFE ALL YEAR ROUND, AT

By Martha Uniacke Breen

SOUTH | FALL 2021

As Cayman Marshall agent Mike Arnold says, “These properties are in such demand that often homes will change hands among friends or family members before they go up for sale publicly.” So when a beauty like this one comes up, with 145 feet of shoreline and designed for comfort and leisure living, you can be sure it won’t be on the market for very long. Puslinch Lake is that rare combination: both a great vacation destination and ideal year-round bedroom community. Geologically, it’s what’s known as a kettle lake, formed by underground springs during the last Ice Age. The lake also has a colourful history as a tourist spot, and old-timers have great stories to tell about its glory days as a destination glamorous enough to rival Muskoka or upstate New York.


THIS HOME HAS BEEN A LABOUR OF LOVE FOR THE CURRENT OWNER.

But the resorts didn’t completely go bust. Once cars became the main form of commuter travel in Ontario, Puslinch took off. By the 1930s, famous bandleaders like Guy Lombardo regularly performed to dance crowds that sometimes reached 400 people. Some of the grand old resorts still stand today; annual events such

as boat tours, local fairs and other recreational activities offer residents and guests a chance to celebrate the area’s heritage, its current attractions, and just get together and have fun. For nature lovers, there’s plenty to enjoy winter and summer. There are direct connections to miles and miles of Grand River Authorityprotected walking trails, with nearby wetlands and unique local flora and fauna. In summer, there’s great boating on the lake’s exquisite still water; you can sign up for waterski lessons at the McClintock ski school, run by former Olympians. In winter, when the lake freezes over, this closeknit community bands together to create skating trails and other fun community events.

Back in the early 1900s, George Sleeman (yes, of the beer-making family) saw his chance to make a fortune when he financed a streetcar line all the way here from Guelph. He figured that with easy transport, the lake would become a tourist Mecca, improving the value of the family’s holdings of recreational and resort facilities in the area. Alas, it wasn’t to be, and George lost his shirt.


T FOR NATURE LOVERS, THERE’S PLENTY TO ENJOY WINTER & SUMMER.

SOUTH | FALL 2021

his home has been a labour of love for the current owner, a retired landscape contractor and builder, who painstakingly retrofitted and renovated over more than two decades. “Everything to me is about the land and the water,” he says, “so the whole house is oriented towards that.” The home features maintenance-free red metal roofing and rustic board-and-battenstyle siding, while the front entry features a timberframe portico and natural granite walls, materials that are continued throughout the interior, blurring the distinction between indoors and out. Large folding doors and covered verandahs along the lake side allow for outdoor living all summer long, while screened rooms and floor-to-ceiling windows put you close to nature twelve months of the year. “The whole house just has this warm, relaxed feeling,” says Mike. Beautifully landscaped, the property includes no less than three firepits, each with its own distinct character and mood. Exterior lighting throughout has been carefully considered, especially around the pool and hot tub,

making for views that are as romantic by night as by day. One of the home’s many special features is the boathouse, a short walk along the water’s edge from the main house. “It’s the last true boathouse on the lake, originally built in the 1930s,” explains the current owner. “I preserved and restored it, with two-storey living quarters and a spiral staircase. It’s a great place for having friends visit.” The modern, roomy garage features a goodsized workshop and storage for ATVs and other equipment, with living quarters above that feature a fully equipped movie theatre, pool room and play area. The current owner betrays a bit of wistfulness at moving on, but has his eye on a new building project, and knows that this house will be a very special opportunity for a new family. “This is a great community where you can be very social if you want to be, but the lots are big and private if you prefer bit of a quieter lifestyle as well. There’s a lot of variety here.”


IT TRULY IS YEAR-ROUND

And, as Mike Arnold observes, “Puslinch Lake is this well-kept secret just a few minutes away from some of the most populated areas in the country. You come here and you’d swear you were in Muskoka, with this truly beautiful lake dotted with islands in the distance. Yet it’s an easy commute to work in Waterloo, Oakville or Toronto. It truly is year-round cottage living.”

Surrounded by loved ones in a packed bar (remember those?), champagne in hand, I know I definitely couldn’t’ve. While 2020/2021 was a seemingly ludicrous time for us all, one of its silver linings, or rather, a little gift it gave us, was forcing us to find strength under unpredictable circumstances.

Emblematic of personal growth, strength, creativity, authenticity, and love, Kortney Wilson’s last couple of years show us all what a truly brave, courageous woman looks like in times of uncertainty.

ortney Wilson is the co-host and lead designer of HGTV’s Making It Home with Kortney & Kenny and the Canadian Screen Awards-nominated Masters of Flip. Known for bringing her creative vision to each renovation, Kortney isn’t afraid to go bold with her design choices and transform a space from unremarkable to inspirational. Originally from Sudbury, Ontario, Kortney moved to Nashville, Tennessee in her late teens with a record deal soon in hand. Her storybook entrance into country music became a search for a different creative and entrepreneurial outlet; however, as she started a family, she became drawn to interior design. Short on cash, Kortney started teaching herself through online guides and magazines as she worked toward her real estate license. Shortly after, she started an award-winning real estate team and incorporated her passion for interior design into flipping and restoring run-down homes. Now 15 years in, Kortney has flipped over 150 houses and has been a leading force in revitalizing East Nashville into the hugely desirable neighbourhood it is today. She credits her success as a Realtor, TV host, author, and entrepreneur—she’s also the creator of home décor line Kort & Co.—to her biggest accomplishment: being a mom to three children and learning to juggle life one day at a time.

“I’ve gone through a lot of personal stuff over the last couple of years, so it’s exciting to be back to work, and it’s also a fresh start, with a new host and he’s amazing,” Wilson discloses. When Kortney started the second season of Making It Home, she knew things were going to be a little different this time around. With a new co-host by her side, Kortney was initially apprehensive about the transition. “I was a little nervous about getting to know my new co-host. I’ve been on screen with Dave for many, many years and I know that’s always the elephant in the room when we’re discussing the show, but the reality is, it was time to move on for both of us. But it

made me sad. I was wondering if I could have a chemistry with anyone else on camera, because I’d never had a co-host other than Dave,” she admits. After their divorce in mid-2020, Kortney set off to find a new screen partner that would not only complement her design prowess on the job site, but complement her personal energy on camera. And she feels so grateful to have found Kenny to be just that. “I definitely connect with him like a sibling, we push back on each other in a way that is healthy and fun!” Wilson says. “He’s so funny – he’s absolutely darling, and we have such a great banter. Behind the scenes, he and I would just mess around and sing Barbra Streisand in the car. We would save all the design talk for screen so everything was super authentic,” she adds. Not only is their personal relationship a highlight of filming for Kortney, but the new energy Kenny adds to the show genuinely benefits Kortney’s design vision as well. “Being able to see everything

As a longtime lover of HGTV Canada and Kortney Wilson’s work, I needed to know what we could expect this season. As per titular suggestion, Kortney and Kenny work with couples to turn their houses into homes. “When people have gotten in over their heads, or dreamed of doing a certain renovation and can’t quite get there, or can’t agree on things within the couple, they ask for our help. We transform their homes for them,” explains Kortney. “First and foremost my goal is always to appease the client,” the designer clarifies, but Making it Home has other goals in mind too. Kortney wants to reach a very broad audience of people who are dreamers. "People who go on Pinterest and go online and think they can’t turn it into something - I want them to understand that design is not rocket science. Any design that you make can be changed. People have this fear of ‘Oh my God, what if I get it wrong?’ and my answer is always ‘So what if you get it wrong!’, try something else! We’re talking about paint. The fear needs to go away. I really do believe that - even if you don’t have “Being able to see the vision that I have,” everything fresh Kortney emphasizes. through his eyes, things The designer is excited for her show I have been doing for to influence the way years, was a gift.

After long days on the job site, Kenny loves spending time with his dog and exploring the remote Canadian wilderness. Whether he’s in his beloved fishing lodge in the centre of Newfoundland or on a rooftop terrace in the heart of Montreal, home for Kenny is wherever there is creativity, big laughs and music you can dance to.


While aesthetic dreams and client vision are at the heart of the designs we can expect this season, Kortney is also sure to apply her years of real estate expertise to ensure her clients are making a solid investment with their renovation. Spending a large portion of her career flipping houses for profit, Kortney knows creating a home for a specific client requires a different approach. “I was able to take a lot of big chances and risks with my choices when flipping,” Kortney says. Whereas renovating homes for a specific client can be “risky business, because eventually I’m going to hand the home back over, and they’re going to have to live in it,” she says. “As a Realtor, I do have a different perspective, because I want to maximize their investment,” Kortney explains. “Though I want their [home owners’] personalities to shine through, I have to balance it. If they want pink polka dots, maybe I don’t put pink polka dots on every surface all over the house. If they eventually want to sell the house, I need to know the home is going to appeal to the masses,” she continues.

Though Kortney is an acclaimed expert and utilizes those skills throughout the show, fresh-faced Kenny isn’t afraid to contradict her opinions...which she appreciates! And let’s be honest, we the viewers love a little playful banter as well. Laughing at my implication that the co-hosts seemed in sync on set, Kortney clarifies, “Oh, we’re often not on the same page!” ...which makes this HGTV Canada fanatic so intrigued to find out more. “That’s actually one of the reasons he stood out in casting,” Kortney discloses, “When the production asked him ‘What do you love about Kortney Wilson?’ he replied, ‘I mean...I like some of her stuff...’” she explains, laughing. All this to say, I think the fresh dynamic on season two of Making It Home is going to be even more engaging than the original duo we’ve seen year after year on HGTV Canada. “The reality is, things change, and things evolve, and it doesn’t mean that you forget your past, it doesn’t mean that you don’t recognize it, but it does force you to


“There are all of these shows out here now that show you exactly what to do. Take one of the designs that you love and apply it.”

– Kortney

embrace the future. So from that perspective, having the show come out now is part of the healing process. And I’m not going to say it’s always easy. Healing sometimes is hard.” Kortney shares, vulnerably.

The last year or so has been difficult for us all, but watching brave women like Kortney in the public eye, sharing their stories, can help us all feel a little less alone. Wilson wants us to know that, “just because I’m on TV doesn’t mean that I don’t go home and cry, or listen to a song and it reminds me of something emotional, or that I don’t get nervous about going to set for the first time with somebody new; these are all real emotions.” To my fellow creators, dreamers, HGTV Canada fans, or anyone who has felt a little bit alone during this time, I invite you to support, engage with, and listen to stories like Kortney’s. Be inspired as she picks herself up, creates a new start, works her butt off, and changes the lives of her clients for the better. Because if any one can make a house a home, it’s someone who has, in spite of it all, finally found her own - in herself, in her kids, and in her passions.

Making It Home with Kortney & Kenny airs Wednesdays at 9pm on HGTV Canada. Also available on StackTV. Follow: @allthingskortneywilson @kennybrain

THE BENEFITS OF LISTING EXCLUSIVELY WITH CAYMAN MARSHALL

M

ost brokerages advise you to put your property into the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) system, in order to get it in front of the greatest number of prospective buyers possible. But when it comes to Muskoka property – especially in the current market – that may not be the best, or even most desirable, route for you. Cayman Marshall has a better way to market your property, which not only ensures that only serious, wellqualified buyers view your property, but allows you to maintain your privacy and avoid the stress and hustle of listing with MLS. With a Cayman Marshall exclusive listing, your property will only be visible to members of our proprietary database. Personal viewing appointments are only scheduled after our agents have taken prospective buyers through a careful pre-screening process.

Our system works equally well for buyers. Rather than enduring the “feeding frenzy,” panic-bidding and sometimes, disappointment that accompanies desirable MLS properties, you have the assurance of knowing the property is only being seen by serious, well-qualified prospects like you, and managed exclusively through Cayman Marshall’s offices. The success of our system speaks for itself: since last August, we’ve sold well over $133 million in exclusive sales alone. Allow us to show you the better way to sell your Muskoka property!

A look at what’s trending in 2022 with Cassis Design Studio’s senior designer, Meredith Parsons. Looking towards a new year is always empowering. It’s a time of fresh starts, ambitious goal-setting, and re-invention. But the invigoration one feels when the clock strikes 12 does not have to be limited to personal development. As you look ahead to the start of 2022, it’s also the perfect chance to re-invent your space. New style trends appear each year, of course, but this year’s emerging design trends truly offer something for everyone. According to Cassis Design Studio senior designer Meredith Parsons, whether you’re

SOUTH | FALL 2021

looking to design a space from scratch and strive to keep up with what’s trending, or re-inventing and refreshing a space that you’ve already made your own, 2022’s looks are timeless, and sure to give your home the elevated touches it needs this year. Parsons starts by taking a high-altitude look at the three main categories of design – traditional, transitional, and modern – and the new developments happening with each in 2022. She then zeroes in on how to make these general styles reflect your own individual style.

One of the prime trends in the past few years has been traditional farmhouse style. Meredith observes that though this trend is beautiful and supremely comfortable to live with, it doesn’t always suit the architecture of every home. So how do you achieve a traditional farmhouse feeling even in a modern-day house? Here are some tips.

THE FIRST BRAND TO COME TO MARKET FOCUSED SOLELY ON HEMP-DERIVED CBD PRODUCTS IS WHOLEHEMP.

104

SOUTH | FALL 2021


WHOLEHEMP:

High Quality & Naturally Grown Canada legalized cannabis in 2018 and since, the conversation around cannabis has predominantly focused on marijuana. Less talked about is that two decades earlier and with a whole lot less fanfare, Canada legalized hemp. Yes, hemp is cannabis. However, by legal definition it must contain less than 0.3% THC (the ingredient that marijuana is so famous for) and as such, is non-intoxicating. Few plants can boast as many uses and beneficial properties as hemp. Historically, it was the world’s dominant fibre crop and Canadian hemp is mostly grown for its nutritious seed, to name a few. One of the most remarkable aspects of hemp, however, is that it is naturally high in CBD (cannabidiol). As a safe, non-addictive and non-intoxicating substance, CBD is one of more than a hundred "phytocannabinoids," which are unique to cannabis and endow the plant with its robust therapeutic profile. It is these properties that have made hemp so attractive to a new cohort of cannabis businesses

now bringing high quality, value priced, hempbased CBD products to Canadian consumers. The first brand to come to market focused solely on hemp-derived CBD products is WholeHemp. All of WholeHemp’s products are made with high CBD hemp flower grown outdoors by Ontario craft farmers, all of whom are women. Their products are all full spectrum CBD, meaning they contain CBD as well as other trace cannabinoids and terpenes (aromatic molecules found in the essential oils of plants). Together, these properties have a synergistic effect commonly known as the entourage effect. Their flagship product and the first to market is their all-botanical, artisanally produced WholeHemp CBD Cream. This cream achieves its great feel by whipping full spectrum WholeHemp CBD oil into pure Shea Butter, giving it a high viscosity and light texture. It is packaged in a beautiful, reusable amble glass bottle, characteristic of the company’s commitment to sustainability.

WHAT’S

NEXT BY TODD ADAIR

I’ve been noticing a strange phenomenon as the pandemic drags well into its second year. It’s hard to describe, but it seems to have seeped into almost every part of life these days. It’s this pervasive sense of… I guess the best word for it is uncertainty.

106

SOUTH | FALL 2021


A

lot of things that we took for granted would always be available, simply aren’t. I’ll give you an example: the other day I went shopping for a bike for my ten-year-old (he’s outgrown his old one, and it’s a matter of pride for him). We drove to every bike shop in the region, and no luck: not a single bike suitable for a ten-year-old was to be found anywhere in Muskoka. Same thing when I went with a client to buy a boat to go with their new property; no boats available for sale, new or used. Tradespeople whom I could always count on to be as good as their word seem to be a lot less certain these days, too. With some of them, it used to be when they said they’d be there on Wednesday, you knew they would be. Now you might get a call early Wednesday morning, saying something’s come up and it’ll be this afternoon or tomorrow. Or maybe they don’t call at all. There are rational explanations for these things, and I am not really blaming the bike store, the boat dealer, or even my friends

in the trades. It’s just part and parcel of the brave new world of Covid. Supply chains, and all kinds of normal processes, have been hugely disrupted by the pandemic and it’s had ripple effects all through the economy. But I think that’s only part of the reason this is happening. For many of us, everything we relied on as part of the normal workings of the world has changed, and it’s had a profound psychological effect. In the worst case, it may have involved the sudden death or illness of a loved one, or even contracting the disease yourself. But even if, so far, you’ve been blessed enough to escape its direct effects, there’s a weariness that comes with protracted vigilance. Here’s my point. What’s next? Where will the uncertainty and tentativeness we’re feeling right now lead? Is this really just an unpleasant but temporary symptom of the pandemic, and once it passes, we’ll all go back to the way things were? Or are we on the vanguard of a complete paradigm shift?

WHETHER YOU’RE THINKING OF BUYING OR SELLING, YOU SHOULD FORGET EVERYTHING YOU’VE HEARD ABOUT “TIMING” THE MARKET. SOUTH | FALL 2021

forced to start new careers). The point is that everything we thought was settled fact is due for reconsideration.

I

’m not suggesting I have an answer or even a strong opinion, but it’s hard to imagine that none of these changes are permanent. After all, I know people who never thought they could work out of their homes, and discovered that not only was it possible, it led to a better work/family balance. For others, it’s led to a reevaluation of their career choices, and some have quit their jobs (or lost them, and been

SOUTH | FALL 2021

Now, it’s an old cliché that uncertainty is the enemy of markets, especially the stock market and the real estate market. (The fact that the stock market has continued to climb as the pandemic has worn on is another of the ironies of the current situation, but that’s another article.) But I do think it’s interesting to think about how real estate could be affected. It’s always been notoriously difficult to predict where prices will go in high-demand markets like the Big Three Muskoka lakes; every time we thought that they couldn’t get any higher, we’ve been confounded. But I think it’s possible that this time, it’s different.


BUY (OR SELL) BECAUSE IT’S RIGHT FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY NOW, NOT BECAUSE YOU THINK YOU MIGHT DO BETTER A FEW MONTHS OR A YEAR FROM NOW.

F

or one thing, as prices lurch into the stratosphere at least for the primary markets, the pool of increasingly wellto-do buyers that form the audience for these properties will shrink, and along with it demand, and therefore prices. (I’m not talking here about what we call the sub, or niche, markets – the smaller lakes and surrounding areas of cottage country, such as Georgian Bay.) I’m not sure if we’ve reached that upper limit yet, or whether prices will stabilize or even fall, but I suspect we are close. That’s why I’ve been telling my clients that, whether you’re thinking of buying or selling, you should forget everything you’ve heard about “timing” the market. There’s no such thing even in a less volatile market than this one, and it’s particularly true now. Buy (or sell) because it’s right for you and your family now, not because you think you might do better a few months or a year from now. There truly is no way to know what’s next, especially in times like these – but that’s one piece of advice I feel confident about sharing. – Todd Adair
