NEWLY LISTED - April 2019

Welcome to this amazing 3,000 sq. ft., 5 bedroom cottage, nestled on a half-acre of well-treed land. The owners started renting cottages many years ago and with each passing year they would say “one day, when we have our own cottage”…and now they have their own slice of paradise on the tranquil shores of Walker Lake! Loving the serenity of cottage life, they were mainly drawn to Walker Lake as it doesn’t allow speed boats or jet skis.

The active search began 7 years ago and took 2 years to find “The Barn” as the family affectionately calls it. The cottage needed a total makeover inside and out and after a 5 year process of living in, while renovating, their first class labour of love came to fruition as they completed the renos. The most wonderful part of the end result is that from the outside it truly looks like a pristine, well kept barn and when you step through the back entrance from the driveway, your initial response will be “Wow”!

Gone are the worn-out shag carpeting of every colour, peeling faded wall paper, dark wood walls, lack of kitchen cupboards and storage space and small closed off rooms, except for the large open unfinished lower level.

The main level is now bright and spacious with an open concept kitchen/dining/living area where the family gathers together to prep meals, dine and hang out while relaxing and watching movies in the living room in front of the gorgeous stone wood burning fireplace. The kitchen is every chef’s dream with plenty of granite counter space, cupboards, modern stainless-steel appliances, a large centre island and many extra gadgets including a food processor, toaster oven, blender, a large stand up mixer and a hand mixer.

Rounding out the main level is a renovated 2-piece bathroom and a screened-in lake facing Muskoka room, the owner's favourite and most used room of the entire cottage in the summer. Between morning coffees, kids doing arts and crafts, mealtimes and then evening board games, they feel like they are in a tree house, one with nature, even on inclement days.

The upper level has a 4-piece bathroom and 4 well-appointed bedrooms, with the generous-sized inviting master bedroom stretching across the entire front of the cottage with beautiful tree-top views of the lake from a wall of floor to ceiling windows.

The lower walk-out level has a 3-piece bathroom and bedroom and every child’s fantasy play room, with an abundance of toys and games for a range of ages, and every teen/adult’s ideal entertainment family room, complete with a pinball machine, 70”TV with a DVD and a large library of DVD’s, as well as satallite service.

The great outdoors at this property also has an abundance of things to do and places to sit back, relax and enjoy. With a southeast exposure, head down to the dock in the morning, coffee cup in hand, and watch the glorious sun rise as the mist comes off the lake and nature starts to awaken.

The 150 ft. of natural shoreline has 2 waterfronts to cater to both young and old alike. At one end is a traditional dock where the water is 8 ft. deep, great for the older kids to jump into the refreshing water to swim, and at the other end the owner’s built steps for the younger kids and elderly to safely enter the lake where it is quiet and shallow with a sandy bottom.

With the lake being quiet and small, be sure to take advantage of the paddle boat, canoe and 2 kayaks at your disposal and get out on the water and explore. For afternoon naps there is a screened-in lakeside deck with a hammock and if the young ones are still not tired out, there is a children’s playset behind the garage. Something for everyone day in and day out!

For a change of pace head into the charming and historical town of Huntsville and for longer day trips, drive to Algonquin Park, especially in the fall when the colour of the leaves is spectacular! So, what are you waiting for!!
