This 100+ year old home features 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large dining room, large living room, gourmet kitchen, large deck with barbecue, second deck overlooking the water, washer and dryer for laundry and off-street parking.
The master bedroom has a queen size bed with high quality mattress and linens, highboy dresser and matching lowboy plus closet. The second bedroom is larger and has 2 singe beds and a pull out couch. The house is really ideal for 2 couples as each would have a private bedroom. The bedrooms, desk sitting area and large 4 piece bathroom are located on the upper floor.
The main floor chef’s kitchen has maple countertops, new gas range, exhaust fan, farmhouse-style sink and a view down River and onto the outdoor dining deck with teak table and chairs. The kitchen windows open to catch the breezes and see the sunset. A second deck at the end of the garden, has Muskoka chairs and enhanced views for relaxing. From this deck you look down the Gananoque River to the oldest swing bridge in Ontario. Passing under this bridge by boat, kayak or canoe, puts you directly into the St Lawrence River and the very heart of the 1000 Islands.
The living room has comfortable, antique furniture and a 55 inch LED tv with free high speed wireless internet. There is also a Bose stereo that you can connect your iPod or computer to for music.
The automatic clothes washer and dryer is located in the basement.
