This is a well-maintained year-round home or cottage located on the Trent Canal just a short lock-free boat ride to beautiful Balsam Lake. Located on a large 0.65 acre gently sloping lot, this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home has 1,200 sq ft of living space, forced-air propane heating and a deep crawl space with a concrete floor. Recent updates include new roof (2019), carpet in living/dining areas (2019), updated kitchen and bathroom (2017) and a steel roof on shop/garage (2017). There are two driveways on either side of the lot with one leading to a 24x36 ft shop/garage, and the other to a single garage with an attached carport. The shop is insulated and heated, with a hoist and built-in air compressor. Taxes are exceptionally low as the waterfront is not owned. However, one just needs to cross municipally maintained Trent Canal Road for deep, weed-free swimming. The $50 annual Homeowners Association fee provides access to a boat dock a short distance west on the Canal. Fibre optic internet has recently become available. There is easy access to Highway 35, and services in Coboconk, Fenelon Falls and Lindsay are a short drive away.
