My favorite home in Frontenac is undoubtedly 42 Countryside Lane. My clients Chris and Laura Towle, together with renowned Bobby McAlpine, masterfully created this lovely home with utmost integrity and purpose. Bobby McAlpine is continually selected as Architectural Digest’s Top 100 Architects year after year. This home is A secluded and peaceful sanctuary on 1.45 private acres in the heart of Frontenac. Exquisite/Timeless/1 of a kind. An architectural masterpiece built in 2007 and situated in tandem to a peaceful abundance of acreage aka The Mercy Retreat. This is more than a custom home, it is a true testament to the McAlpine architectural design philosophy of seamlessly combining the elements of balance, symmetry, and style. Creatively designed with 5 bdrms/5 baths in the main house + a 5-star guest house overlooking prime acreage with a master suite and a mini kitchen equipped to host your special guests in style. Charming covered breezeway with custom millwork and wood-burning fireplace adjoins the main house & guest house, just steps from the 5-star outdoor amenities including pool/pool house, hot tub, and sports court.
Did you know The City of Frontenac takes its name from Louis de Buade, Comte de Frontenac et de Palluau (the Count of Frontenac), a French courtier and Governor of New France from 1672 to 1682 and from 1689 until his death in 1698? Louis de Buade established a number of forts on the Great Lakes, including Fort Frontenac in what is now Kingston, Ontario, and engaged in a series of battles against the English and the Iroquois.
