PROPERTY sits nestled on the shoreline and graced by cooling, sweet lakeside breezes amongst towering cedar and maple trees on a quiet Lake Huron cove on Bruce Peninsula with grounds extending outward beyond other properties on a point to water's edge affording a unique panoramic 180 degree viewing over water facing westerly and breathtaking sunsets. Pristine Lake Huron with immeasurable fresh clean warm waters, beautiful gardens around the entire property and a quiet, private courtyard. Stone walkways/steps and raised stone ledges enhance the strolls around the premises. Shallow entry water edge ideal for children with frogs & tadpoles and lots of minnows are also exciting. Bass come to the quiet of the bay to spawn in spring! Enclosed stone campfire pit facing water for evening family gatherings to end each perfect day at the lake. Very spacious, well landscaped property with lots of room to explore, especially for children, as 260 feet from roadway to water's edge and dock and 150ft wide! Very calm, protected bay allows for safe boat mooring in bay or docking. 3-4 foot of depth close to end of dock even in these unprecedented low water levels. Other owners located out further in bay toward open water are moored all summer.

Stunning traditional English style 13 room stone dwelling of ageless beauty nestled in perfect harmony. A full 2 storey, with immense character and antique charm. This building is larger than it looks, approx. 2281 sq ft building size, (42' x 34' irregular) with approximately 1813 sq ft of living space. Use as a 4 season cottage till retirement, then enjoy year-round residency as this owner due to it being solidly built, fully in summer, toasty in cooler months. Includes convenient individually room controlled electric heating plus romantic wood burning floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace. Captivating soft evening lighting with stone and glass backgrounds.
Dwelling has 5 bedrooms, or 4 bedrooms and a stunning den, all upstairs, 2-4pc baths, one on each floor, spacious main floor laundry, front entry with stained glass door and skylights, etc. etc. Clean, safe endless fresh cool drinking water from deep drilled well. Separate lake pump for gardens. (Pitched roof not visible in photos...not a flat roof)

A uniquely beautiful well laid out property, with lots of history. For those wishing a nice tidy consistent income, to one side of the property you also have a completely self contained original summer cottage with its own sandy warm water access for kiddies plus dock and campfire area, and driveway. Typically this investment is fully booked from June till September with well-screened clientele in very limited numbers for occupancy to maintain quiet. Possibly the income will assist the new owner with an early transition from the city? All this separated from the main dwelling by a tasteful natural wood lattice fence and an abundance of very tall and dense trees. Or this cottage can serve as overflow accommodation for just close friends and relatives. Maybe even a studio for hobbies, or the kids private domain, at any age.....or simply alone time to contemplate lifes vicissitudes.
For the handyperson you also have a workshop with its own hydro panel, measuring approx 22ft x 22ft with garage door for larger projects like building of flowering vine trellis', and an abundance of windows. This building initially was a another 2 bedroom summer cottage (2) total, all the plumbing was simply capped off.

At the shoreline and dock, a very substantial building also with hydro and concrete floor used as a change house for before and after a swim. A great structure as a beginning for a sauna or hot tub.

Approximately 1200 s.f. of out buildings in addition to the main stone dwelling, all with hydro. Property supplied with 200 amp underground service with circuit breaker panel. Survey available showing all buildings. Property taxes just $3291.42

**A must see, and with possibilities, as both dwellings could easily be rented together to hand chosen summer folk, or a B&B...if you are contemplating a transitional scenario with a personal future in mind at the spectacular lakeside.
