The lot was purchased in 2000.... the cottage was gradually built over the 10 years following... which included all the exterior patios, decks, 2 sets of stairs etc... We are the original owners and have designed and have been directly involved with building much of the cottage ourselves..... this is what most would find interesting .... There are lots of personal touches and unique features as a result. The natural granite fireplace that originates in the basement and covers all 3 levels was built from stone on our property with the exception of a handful of larger pieces! The wrought iron gates and stair cases where specifically developed and designed by us... etc.. etc....
This is a pristine head lake.... the water is drinkable and clean! The lake is quiet and the property offers total privacy.
Views from the upstairs bedrooms and the main room.
