The Place: A large, five-bedroom family cottage on a sprawling green lot on Fairy Lake.

Bragging Rights: Built in 2009, this cottage has a classic Muskoka-style design, complete with timber frame and reclaimed hemlock floors. The nod to tradition only goes so far, though: the open-concept layout is completely modern.

Big Selling Point: The property has 350 feet of west-facing exposure, which, aside from giving the owners an expansive view of the lake, also ensures that the house is bathed in sunset light in the evenings.

Possible Deal Breaker: The asking price for this large chunk of land doesn’t include the cost of the riding mower and team of landscapers the owner will need to keep it all in check.
