AGENT: Gail McCormack, Kawartha Waterfront Realty Inc., Brokerage
THE PLACE: This quaint and homey one-storey cottage sits on 2.5 acres of waterfront property on Head Lake in the Kawarthas.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: Head Lake is known for its fishing—with walleye, small and largemouth bass, trout and muskies swimming its depths—and the dock provides the perfect place to catch your own dinner.
BIG SELLING POINT: A real cottage, in the traditional sense of the term. With wooden walls in every room and stone fireplaces in the living room and the master bedroom, the space exudes comfort and warmth.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: The 2.5 acres of property may be too much for some, especially given the rocky shoreline and the wild vegetation that surrounds the property.
