Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: I am a woman of the 21st century: self-reliant, independent and curious.I'm a mother and a designer.
I have always believed that life itself is one of the greatest treasures that we have been given to enjoy.
With every passing day I strive to recognize more beauty around me, no matter where I am at the moment.
I am fortunate to be able to travel to many destinations on our wonderful planet. Some more exotic that the others....for example, I was always curious about desert but I never thought that I will be able to visit it one day - and then my life had lead me to Persian Gulf where I worked and lived for over 4 years :) Life is amazing with all the surprises that waiting for us every day.
Today I am living between 2 continents - North America and Europe. Can't sit still for too long :)
I am very conscious about our environment and I believe that we all have a responsibility to protect it for our future generations.
Why the Owner Chose Balm Beach: I remember when I was searching for a property that I will like to buy... I had a list of requirements in my mind. Most important to me was location. I wanted a place that will be easy accessible from Toronto, but it would feel like a different reality all together. I wanted wilderness but safe for a small child. Close to nature but with all comforts of modern living.
I was lucky that I found my perfect location, then I just redesign, remodel and renovated the place :) It took quite few years and lot of effort but I'm very happy with the results today.
The Unique Benefits at this House: When my son was born I have purchased this house so we will have some roots somewhere, even if we kept on travelling.
I have named this house KOCHATKA which means a Love Cabin in loose translation; and it represents our family love for each other and for all great things in life.
The red maple tree at the front of the house is our family protector and a happy beacon.
Our family is 3 person/ 3 generation combo. When I travel my mom take care of the house. When we travel all together I ask my wonderful neighbors to look over the property. We are great hosts, respectful of boundaries but very open to new experiences.
