Point Lot Mansion Features Ample Boat Dockage and 1,600 Feet of Water Frontage
THOUSAND ISLANDS, Ontario, July 21, 2015 /CNW/ -- Platinum Luxury Auctions, a leading auction firm specializing in the sale of non-distressed, multimillion-dollar properties, has announced the August 22, 2015 auction of a magnificent, 15-acre point lot mansion known as Eagle Point, located in the Thousand Islands, Ontario, Canada. Previously offered for C$22.9 million, the estate will now be sold to the highest bidder at or above the auction's reserve price of C$7.9 million. Platinum is conducting the sale in cooperation with listing agent Robert R. Stephens of Ontario firm RE/MAX Real Estate Centre, Inc.
Creating the Eagle Point estate was truly an undertaking, and required extensive modifications to prepare the site for development, including the use of dynamite blasting. Much of the stone removed in the blasting process was repurposed to create the beautiful walls, pillars, and water features of the estate. Once the site was prepared, the property's living structures were built to the highest standards of quality and construction. "I've never seen such whistle-clean mechanical and electrical control rooms than those found at Eagle Point. It speaks to the owner's high standards and dedication to maintaining the estate," noted Trayor Lesnock, Platinum's president and founder. "I hate to sound cliche, but you could eat off of the floors."
Upon entering the private gates of Eagle Point, one is welcomed by a beautiful expanse of handsome landscaping, gently flowing streams, and rock waterfalls, all surrounded by majestic views of the Saint Lawrence River. Living quarters at the estate consist of a tri-level, 13,975-square-foot main residence and a 5,761-square-foot guesthouse. The main residence has 6 bedrooms, 6 full and 5 half baths, while the guesthouse adds an additional 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths, along with three oversized garage bays for large automobiles, boats and other recreational vehicles.
Interiors of the main estate are lavish, with finishes consisting of stone, marble, and various custom-carved woods. Additional features include a snowmelt system, LiteTouch® lighting, in-floor heating, security system, two-story grand salon, home theater, elegant spiral staircase spanning three floors, full generator backup, executive study, two gourmet kitchens, an in-law suite, multiple fireplaces, and custom built-ins.
"This estate is much more than another large, waterfront property," said Brad Pruitt, Platinum's director of business development. "Eagle Point blends Old World elegance with modern technology and amenities, while offering incredible boating accommodations in one of North America's most unique waterfront markets."
To be sure, the estate is designed with the boater in mind. With 1,600 linear feet of total water frontage, a commercial-grade, concrete dock providing more than 300 feet of dockage in deep-water Bucks Bay, a boathouse, and multiple boatlifts, Eagle Point is truly a boater's paradise. "In the Thousand Islands, boating is an integral part of the lifestyle," added Lesnock. "In fact, quite a few of the island homes there are only reachable by boat."
In addition to its boating features, the estate's vast outdoor living areas include a heated pool and spa with stone waterfall, two levels of covered patios, a waterfront fire pit, summer kitchen and cabana shower, and plenty of additional land for a tennis court, putting green or private helipad.
Eagle Point is located within the 1000 Islands Parkway community, one of the premier locations within the Thousand Islands. True to its name, the Thousand Islands are a collection of 1,864 islands on the Saint Lawrence River, which divides the banks of Canada and the United States. Long considered one of the best kept secrets of both upstate New York and lower Ontario, the area is home to many historical vacation homes that were built by industrialist barons from New York, Chicago, Pittsburgh and Cleveland, who chose the area as their preferred summer home location.
