Welcome to 796 Regional Road 21, a one-of-a-kind property and multi-generational home set on 10 acres land in rural Scugog.
Extremely private, the property is surrounded my mature trees and backs onto a large body of water. Being set well back from the road gives it exceptional frontage, and allows for a long driveway with ample exterior parking. The front yard has a pond, while the massive backyard is an amazing playground for adults and children alike. There are three separate back decks; raised gardening beds; a fire pit; a wood gazebo covering an interlocking patio area; and through the gazebo is a fenced-in area that encloses an in-ground pool surrounded by interlocking, and which has one of the three wood decks, as well as a cabana.
The entire house is actually encompasses two custom-built self-contained homes - the main household is a 3,400 sq. ft. (approx.) two storey with four bedrooms, and attached to it is a 1,200 sq. ft. (approx.) bungalow with two bedrooms - making it ideal for multi-generational families. The massive lower level is shared between both homes, yet there is a set of double doors that can give each home its own distinct recreation space, if desired. The home also features a brick exterior with siding; oversized windows throughout with multiple exposures for maximum natural lighting; separate main entrances to each home, both which have arched decorative glass inserts for their door and sidelights; and a triple car garage with both a double and a single door, as well as a separate single car garage, which has been converted into utility and storage space for the bungalow (can be converted back to a garage, if needed).
Both homes feature pot lights, ceiling fans, and elegant ceiling light fixtures; garden door walk-outs onto their respective back decks; double coat closets with mirrored doors in their main foyers; functional utility spaces; generously sized principal rooms; as well as hardwood staircases to the lower level - with the main house having another hardwood staircase to its upper level..
The main home showcases ceramic and hardwood flooring on its main level, and directly to the right of the foyer is a formal living room with a vaulted Cathedral ceiling. Across the foyer is a baker’s room, which has a built-into the wall pantry behind sliding barn doors - yet this room is also ideal as a den, home office, or a formal dining area.
The baker’s room, kitchen, breakfast room, and family room all enjoy backyard views. The breakfast area has a turret-shaped wall filled with windows, and the family room has the walk-out onto the backyard deck. The gourmet kitchen showcases functionality and beauty, and includes wood cabinetry with some glass-paneled uppers and under cabinet lighting; a tiled back splash and stone counters; a centre island; a 5-burner gas cooktop, two wall ovens, a dishwasher, and a double door fridge with bottom mount freezer; as well as a stainless steel double under mount sink.

The family room has a French door entry, wainscoting, and a ceiling fan, as well as updated vinyl plank flooring. The master bedroom is bright and generously sized, and this retreat showcases a papered accent wall; a built-in make-up vanity next to the walk-in closet; and space for a sitting area next to the turret-shaped wall.

The bungalow’s kitchen features wood cabinetry; an island with breakfast seating and a stainless steel double sink; a 4-burner gas cooktop, dishwasher, wall oven, and fridge; as well as a servery area adjacent to the dining area.
