Nestled in the heart of Kawartha’s cottage country, lies this breathtaking lakefront cottage. Comfortably situated at the end of the bay, this property can be accessed by a private lane lined with towering white birch and spruce trees. This private 4000 square foot home backs onto open acres of Crown land and has plenty of nearby recreational activities for every season. It is the sole cottage at the end of the bay and shares its western shoreline with only one other property.
This warm and welcoming 4-season home boasts a spectacular waterfront view and has all the amenities a vacationer could desire! The interior of the house showcases natural pine, a vaulted ceiling and pristine hardwood floors throughout the kitchen, living room and master bedroom, while the remaining five bedrooms and upstairs loungeroom have carpeting. The wide, two-story windows overlook the expansive deck, firepit, barbeque area, private dock, and beach. The large kitchen and connecting living room, with a second-floor lounge area that is separated only by a railing that overlooks the main floor, allows its guests to feel both accessible and secluded from anywhere in the house. The open concept creates a feeling of luxury and space, while the casual furnishings beckon for comfort and relaxation.
Set in tranquil natural surroundings combined with comfortable accommodations, this property is a lakeside gem waiting to be experienced! The windows, large deck and second-floor balcony have south-facing exposure with a perfect view of the private dock and waterfront. The easily accessible private beach has warm sand and a shallow walk-in, making it an ideal spot for young children to play.
Crystal Lake is a spring-fed, five-star, feeder lake with clean water free of debris which makes it perfect for swimming, fishing, waterskiing and a myriad of other water sports. The cool, clean, deep water provides lots of food and is an ideal habitat for lake trout, largemouth bass, pickerel, and rock bass.
