This Island Cottage in the Kawartha Lakes Brings a New Meaning to “Waterfront”
Encircled by tall trees and lily pads, this cottage on Big Bald Lake offers up quintessential calm. The bungalow-style property is perched on an island of its very own, with a 360-degree lake view quite literally at its doorstep.
At 574 sq. ft and with only one bedroom, the home itself is humble, but the surrounding scenery is undoubtedly the selling point.
A multi-level deck — spacious enough to accommodate a dining set, lounge chairs, and a fire feature — wraps around the entire perimeter of the home and overlooks the tranquil waters. From the deck, residents of the home can access and enjoy a private dock. With Catalina Bay just 300 metres away, it’s the perfect vacation home (or forever home!) for anyone who loves to swim, fish, or boat. It’s more perfect still for someone who would enjoy a downsized way of life.
The interior of the home is cozy but bright, with all of the features and fixtures that you would need and want from your home away from home. The living room accommodates plenty of seating and the kitchen is fully outfitted with all major appliances and a freestanding kitchen island. Both the living area and bedroom have walkout access to the deck.
Our Favourite Thing
What this property lacks in interior square footage, it makes up for with a roomy, multi-level deck and private dock. The outdoor features add livable space to the home, and are perfect for entertaining guests, spending time with family, and suntanning solo. And with that view, who would want to spend time indoors, anyways!
For the remarkably low price of $599,000, this quaint island cottage could be yours. All appliances, light fixtures, and window coverings come with the sale of the home.
