Blue Sails Lakeside Retreat was just completed in May 2018, a rebuild of a waterfront property (formerly Willow Lake House) that has brought the lake views indoors. Enjoy a stunning double story view in an open concept great room that includes a kitchen (all new appliances) with an oversized island and two sitting areas, plus a wood burning fireplace at its center. There are three bedrooms (king, queen and bunk room) and three full baths, plus a queen pull out in the great room.
Ideal for family vacations and outdoors enthusiasts, due to expansive lawns and waterfront access on 2+ acres, close to the Millenium Trail and a golf course/water range. This property features private 150+ feet of south facing frontage on Lake Ontario, an easy walk to Drake Devonshire, local shops and restaurants.
Spectacular views of the lake greet you upon arrival, even before you open the front door. In the backyard oasis, there is a lakeside cedar deck/lounge area, plus outdoor oversized sectional and two dining areas, one on the screened in porch. There is a basketball net on the extra wide driveway.
Inside, enjoy relaxing in comfortable and contemporary furnishings with open concept kitchen/dining/living room equipped with Satellite TV and board games. The 9’ dining table seats 8-10. The home is perfect for entertaining with a well-equipped kitchen, air conditioning, as well as tankless hot water, natural gas bbq and dual fuel 30” range.
Due to the 15 foot escarpment and proximity to the water, this property is suitable for children ages 8+. The lake is accessible with cedar stairs and railing, but there is no dock permitted and water can be choppy. Down at the shoreline, limestone ledges extend into the water, which makes for a shallow entry, clear for swimming. Waterfront access is rocky, so water shoes are recommended.
Enjoy sitting out by the water, swimming or kayaking. The house enjoys an unobstructed view of the Sandbanks Provincial Park in the distance, on a sheltered bay. Other local beaches are close by.
Amenities include modern farmhouse style furnishings throughout, central air, wifi, ceiling fans and reading lights in bedrooms, 50” satellite TV, bluetooth speaker, dishwasher, washer/dryer, N’Espresso and Delfino coffee machines, natural gas bbq, municipal water (no well or septic), hot water on demand, basketball hoop and more.
