What you should know about this house

Amenities and special features of this house

The property that eminent Canadian architect Donald Chapman created to be his personal residence is an architectural masterwork in the Mid Century Modern Organic style.Set in a 1.5 acre estate lot with over 320 feet of Niagara River waterfront, this brilliant ~5200 square foot home appears to grow from the landscape, echoing the natural features in a fashion that establishes a beautiful marriage between its striking facade and parkland setting.It is a house of courtyards and colonnades, of grand spaces with soaring ceilings that still retain the intimate warmth of an embrace, of tall white masonry walls softened by oak timber framing and grounded by the earthy tones of its polished brick floors.Ceiling to floor glass windowed colonnades connect four functionally distinct pavilions organized around accessible exterior courtyards; each pavilion designed to augment a different facet of a measured thoughtful lifestyle. And, every space presents its own incredible views onto the river and into the Carolinian forest of the riverbank. This tour de force design creates a gestalt that generates a sense of Zen which has rarely been produced in North American architecture. A gestalt that seamlessly transitions through winter, spring, summer and fall to deliver the very best experience of each season.And, for the first time, the Chapman family has decided to pass their father???s legacy on to its next custodian.Everything Muskoka has to offer, while being surrounded by vineyards and award-winning wineries, famed restaurants, cultural venues and history of Niagara-on-the-Lake??? the Estate of River Zen is truly a place for those of discriminating and sophisticated taste.This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for you to live and enjoy life in a one-of-a-kind design masterwork.
