Cottage of the Week: $1.7 million for a sprawling lakefront spread in the Kawarthas

Address: 108 Fire Route 96
Neighbourhood: Galway-Cavendish-Harvey, Ontario Agent: Greg Ball and Judy Ball, Bowes & Cocks Limited Brokerage Price: $1,699,000

The Place: A wooded property with a four-bedroom cottage, a guest house, a bunkie and a boathouse on the Kawarthas’ Pigeon Lake.

Bragging Rights: Nobody wants to work during the weekend, but if you must there’s a pleasant, loft-like office that looks out over the nearby treetops.

Big Selling Point: Space to stretch out. The property comprises 1.3 acres, with nearly 300 feet of waterfront and a private beach.

Possible Deal Breaker: Maintaining a large property is a lot of work—though at least with a year-round cottage, you can spread out the upkeep.

By The Numbers: • $1,699,000 • $7,830 in property taxes (2012) • 1.3 acres • 4 bedrooms • 3 bathrooms • 3 fireplaces • 2-car garage • 2-bedroom guest cottage • 1 bunkie • ½ basketball court
