Description: 

NEWLY LISTED - July 2020

You are in for a real treat when you settle into this amazing property, comprised of 2 separate cottages and a boathouse, juxtaposing classic with modern!! Conveniently located just off of HWY 400 and HWY 141, the 2 cottages sit nestled on 2 acres of well-treed land with 265 feet of waterfrontage, on the beautiful shores of popular Horseshoe Lake right in the heart of cottage country!

The cottage was built in the 1970’s by a veteran of the second World War. He and his wife were married for over 80 years and they were, at one point, Canada’s longest living married couple. Their names are engraved on the stone mantle and the cottage was a tribute to their love story.

Although the interior has the lines and design of the typical classic cottage of that era, they were ahead of their time in creating a semi open-concept main living space, kitchen/dining/living room, with the stunning stone fireplace as its centerpiece (the current owners have modified the function of the fireplace but have added a woodstove in the corner of the living room). Floor to ceiling windows along the front of the living room look out onto the deck and frame beautiful tree-top views of the lake while providing warm ambient light in the spacious living area. Rounding out the main floor is a lake-facing master bedroom, a second bedroom facing out to the expansive back lawn and a 4-piece bathroom.

The spacious lower level has a family room, with direct walk-out to the lower covered deck, 2 more bedrooms, a 3-piece bathroom and a large laundry room.

The guest cottage is right beside the main cottage but as you go down to the waterfront there is a row of tall trees in between the 2 cottages giving each a little more privacy. The guest cottage is approximately the same size as the main cottage but the interior is completely open concept and although modern in every way, the pine floors and ceilings give it a warm and inviting ambiance.

The main level has a bunk bedroom, 2-piece bathroom, a kitchen with modern stainless steel appliances (excluding a stove) and a spacious living room with a direct walk-out to a covered lakeside deck. The upper level is a spectacular master bedroom with a 3-piece ensuite, soaring cathedral ceilings, glass floors and a walk-out to a private lakeside deck. Although there isn't a sauna on the property, both cottages have steam showers which pretty much turn the showers into saunas!

The property itself has so much to offer to both young and old alike. With large, mostly level lawns both behind and in front of the cottage, there is literally enough room for a full soccer field, just bring the nets! And as mentioned previously, both cottages have 2 open decks and 2 covered decks, but they also have their own docks. The main cottage's dock has another covered deck and a modern spacious boathouse. Needless to say, there is an abundance of choices for the entire family to spread out and relax!

For avid boaters there is a marina just two properties away from the cottage, making it effortless to bring or rent a boat. With canoes, kayaks and a paddleboat at your disposal, be sure to get out on the water and explore, and for those brave enough to venture on a rewarding excursion, there is a great pizza restaurant on the other side of the lake. For exercise enthusiasts, combine your “Tim fix” with a fresh air 4km walk to the Tim Hortons down Horseshoe Road!

For a change of pace, head into Parry Sound where you will find all shopping amenities, quaint shops, bookstores, great restaurants and take-out options. Parry Sound is the home of the 30,000 Island Queen Cruise scenic tour and the "Festival of the Sound" (late July to mid August) which features both classical and jazz music in the beautiful Charles Stockey concert hall. The area also features many golf courses, one being the award-winning Ridge at Manitou.

However you choose to spend your days, end them back at the cottage with a BBQ on the deck and as the property lights up beautifully at night from the multitude of solar powered pot lights, sit back and enjoy after dinner beverages and watch the boats go by. No evening in cottage country is complete without gathering around the fire pit, roasting marshmallows and reminiscing about the day’s adventures and planning for another great day ahead…so what are you waiting for!!
