Treasure Point is a spectacular custom-built log home set on beautiful Chandos Lake with 385' of lake frontage, tall trees, and outstanding views - including sunset views from the covered porch. This executive log home is on a double lot with 1 ½ acres of seclusion and privacy.
The cottage was a childhood dream that led to an architect's inspired design with 26' high vaulted and beamed ceilings, hickory floors, cherry cabinets, beautiful stonework and custom designed fixtures like the real wagon wheel chandelier in the dining room.
Beautifully furnished and finished with over 2,000 sq. ft. on the main floor and 4,500 sq. ft. total under roof, this home can be your personal retreat away from the city. The living areas and three bedrooms are on the main level with a fourth spectacular bedroom in the loft area overlooking the living room and lake, while showcasing the hand carved log structures.
Walking into the cottage for the first time is an awe inspiring experience for everyone. The massive size of the logs, posts and beams are not immediately apparent in photos, but are brought to life when you stand next to them and look up. Views of the water are seen through the huge lakefront picture windows (16’ wide by 20’ tall) in the living room. The centerpiece of the living room is the 14’ tall stone fireplace, complete with accent lighting for dramatic evening viewing.
The kitchen and dining rooms are located off the living room and include expansive cherry cabinets, a 6-burner gas/convection antique replica stove, an island and a huge dining table 9 ½’ long. All kitchen appliances, pots, pans, utensils and miscellaneous tools are brand new and ready to use.
A lovely 400 sq. ft. covered porch off the kitchen overlooks the lake as well as our secluded private point. A second deck, larger than the first overlooks the lake and dock. A third smaller covered porch greets visitors at the main entrance with a stone pathway to the driveway.
There is also an unfinished basement with a walk-out to the lake. The satellite TV and DVD player are in the basement, along with a comfortable sofa and coffee table.
Our dock is ready to swim from or lounge on. The U-shaped dock is 28’ x 30’ with a large slip for your boat. There is an angled ladder that makes exiting easy for everyone. The water is approximately 6’ deep off the end of the dock and has a soft sandy bottom. We include a canoe and kayak for your exploring (you will need to furnish your own PFDs for safety reasons).
Live in 'rustic luxury' with all of the modern amenities. Our family also has a 50 acre animal sanctuary behind the cottage with resident deer and the occasional moose.
Approximately 10 minutes to Apsley.

About Tim Nugent
My dad built a log cottage in the late '60s nearby, and as a youth I hiked through the woods and swam in the lake dreaming of my own log home.
My family and I realized our dream and have designed and built our own spectacular log home on the lake. As a Professional Engineer, I had a pretty good 'design eye', but we still hired an architect to ensure that the building was proportional and would work properly.
Now we're inviting you to come up and relax on our wonderful point of land.
Tim Nugent purchased this cottage in 2009
Why Tim Nugent chose Anstruther Lake
Chandos Lake is a large spring-fed lake filled with bass, trout, walleye, pike and perch located about 2 hours northeast of Toronto. It's the greatest place on earth (in the summer)!
What makes this cottage unique
You'll be serenaded to sleep in the evening with the calls of the loons to their mates after the sun sets on the lake. You will also be able to enjoy a morning paddle on the glass calm waters and watch beavers and herons at work catching their breakfast.
