This $6 million modern home near Toronto has a pond as a backyard pool
Anyone who had a pool in their backyard growing up was elite.
While the rest of us had to make do with public pools, running through sprinklers and those sad kiddie pools that you can buy at Walmart for $10, backyard pool people were living the life of luxury.
But what's even better than a pool in your backyard? An entire pond.
5672 16th Sideroad, located in King, Ontario, has just that and the envy is real.
It's like Muskoka in your backyard, with the dock and the firepit patio, but you don't have to share it with anyone else.
In addtion, to a stellar backyard pond this home has a lot to offer, both in terms of land and outbuildings.
The four-bedroom, six-bathroom home sits on 10 acres of land.
The property also features a separate garage apartment, a four-stall barn and a domed indoor arena near the back of the property with two paddocks.
The garage apartment could easily be rented out or used as an Airbnb or guest house.
The main home is beautiful, modern and surprisingly energy efficient thanks to it's geothermal heating and cooling.
It also has an abundance of natural light, soaring ceilings and incredible views thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the home.
The main floor flows well from one room, tying in to the surrounding nature thanks to elements like natural stone walls.
The kitchen has everything you need with a pantry, breakfast bar and a walk-out to the porch.
The home also features a screened Muskoka room for when you want to enjoy the outdoors but not the bugs.
But there is of course a traditional dining room too.
The bedrooms are situated upstairs and all four bedrooms in the home have ensuite bathrooms.
The primary bedroom is luxurious with a walk-in closet and large ensuite bathroom.
There's more space in the basement with a games room, home theatre, gym, sauna and extra storage.
And while the home isn't in Toronto proper, it is only a 25-minute drive to the airport so if you ever miss city life you're just a short drive away.
The home is currently listed for $5,999,000.
