Property description

This 1450 square foot gracious historic country home is surrounded by 1 acre of lawns and gardens with adjacent use of 150 feet of shoreline on Colpoy's Bay/Georgian Bay's crystal clear water.

This turn of the century 3-bedroom house has an eat-in kitchen, open living room and dining room areas; it features a hot tub, cedar decking, and a large wrap-a-round pillared porch providing panoramic vistas of the Niagara Escarpment, the water and islands of beautiful Georgian Bay. It has a large grassy front lawn and a broad open backyard looking back on the Escarpment. The screened-in waterfront gazebo offers a tranquil location for taking in the view while enjoying a glass of wine, the stars and the milky way!
Main Floor
The centerpiece of the living room is a large brick, airtight wood-burning fireplace. Two leather couches provide comfortable viewing of the television with satellite hook-up, DVD, VCR and a CD player, provided for your use.
Adjacent to the living room is the dining area with a large window providing breathtaking views of Colpoy's Bay over the front lawns. The dining room sits 6 people comfortably.
Separate from the living room is a tastefully decorated kitchen, fully equipped with fridge, stove, dishwasher, microwave, and plenty of cupboards and counter space. Also there is a breakfast bar area with 2 stools.
Outside Surroundings
The open wrap-around porch offers multiple vistas with the Niagara escarpment to the rear and the blue waters of Georgian Bay to the front. A waterside screened-in gazebo provides comfort for evening enjoyment and sits on a cedar deck complete with adirondack chairs. A perfect spot from which to dip your toes in the crystal clear waters of the bay, enjoy a glass of wine or take in a beautiful evening sunset.
