Cottage of the Week: $1.3 million for a pretty Acton Island property with a luxurious master bedroom
ADDRESS: 1046 Apiary Road
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Lake Muskoka
AGENT: Cameron and Karen White, Re/Max Hallmark Realty Ltd., Brokerage
THE PLACE: Sitting on the southern tip of Acton Island in Lake Muskoka, this cottage offers the privacy of island living with an added convenience: there’s a bridge that connects the property to the mainland.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: The master bedroom. The vaulted ceilings and open-concept living space create the chic feel of a downtown loft. But the wall of windows opening onto a private deck and the wood-burning fireplace maintain that traditional sense of rustic living.
BIG SELLING POINT: It comes fully furnished. Better to spend the last few weeks of summer on the dock rather than scrambling to decorate your new digs.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: If you want the exterior to match the trendy interior, you’ve got a lot of renovating in your future.
