Have the best of all worlds in this spectacular waterfront year-round 5-bedroom 3-bath home. Enjoy this rare gem as your residence, cottage, and/or investment property. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live, work, or retire in a private resort-like setting right on 223 ft of waterfront nestled in this genuinely friendly Muskoka community. Highly accessible year-round. Less than a 2-hour drive to Toronto’s 401/400 and only 10-15 minutes to Bracebridge or Huntsville. Home is connected to ultra-fast 1Gb fibre optic internet, with easy courier, mail service, and curbside waste collection. The stunning wall-to-wall water views from inside this open concept interior draw you to the 2000+ sf grand terrace, sauna, stone fire pit, perennial gardens, matured tree double lot. This superbly rejuvenated home offers new appliances (2021, 2022), furnace (2022), updated water treatment system, fully made over kitchen, bathrooms, and finished basement with laundry, family/game room, workshop/studio, bedroom, and dry cellar. Plenty of storage space with outdoor storage buildings and a double height 2 car garage with paved drive. ***JULY UPDATES include a 3rd shower finshed with tiled stone, new insulated entrance door, and a large new thermal bedroom window for comfort and views. *** Forever leave behind the mania of weekend warrior cottage traffic. Start your day from the water view office, greet sunrise with coffee in the solarium or the water facing Muskoka room. Swim from the gently sloped sandy beach, lounge on the dock or paddle the gentle Muskoka River. Fully turnkey option also negotiable for a fast summer posession or for immediate reliable vacation rental investment income. (id:33600)
