Address: 9 Felsman Lane
Neighbourhood: Parry Sound
Agent: Judy Parks, Paul Heenan and Linda Heenan, Royal Lepage Lakes of Muskoka; and Mike Timmins, Royal LePage Team Advantage Realty, Brokerage
The Place: A sprawling, 5,700-square-foot cottage with a guest bunkie, located on the shores of Georgian Bay.
The History: This cottage was completed in 2012. Every window and door was customized to make optimal use of the lot, which is set on 317 feet of water frontage. Floor-to-ceiling windows, a 16-foot bi-fold door and granite flooring allow the indoors to mingle with the outdoors.
Big Selling Point: With 17-foot windows stretching across the entire back wall and a two-story stone fireplace, the great room really lives up to its name.
Possible Deal Breaker: Anyone looking for a mere summer home may want someplace a little more rustic and a lot less expensive. This place is for serious cottagers only.
