This year-round property has been comprehensively and tastefully renovated and will work equally well as a home or weekend cottage. You will be delighted by the bright and cheerful interior and the compelling vistas of the waterfront and lake afforded by the large windows and patio doors in the main living and kitchen areas. Practical features include expansive deck and patios on both sides of the cottage, insulated crawlspace with poured concrete floor, propane fireplace and central vacuum. High speed internet is available. There is a detached garage, Bunkie and shed (all with electricity), and the newer aluminum dock has wheels for easy take in/out. The west-facing waterfront is good for swimming and the sunsets are spectacular. Balsam Lake is an easy boat trip through the famous Kirkfield lock, and Lake Simcoe lies a short distance westward along the Trent-Severn Waterway. The property is located just off of Hwy 48, with easy access to Orillia, Newmarket and the GTA.
