The history

Hirsh Log Homes built this and four other townhouse units in 2016. This is one of the larger ones, and it’s still owned by the developer. The buyers will be the first to live in it.

Big selling point

It’s impossible to get a waterfront property closer to Port Carling: owners are a two-minute stroll away from inhaling lakeside tacos at Grand Electric, or shopping for stylish swimwear at Frankie’s Surf Club. The home is perfect for staunch city dwellers who want a taste of Muskoka life without actually roughing it at all.

Possible deal breaker

The buyers certainly won’t be in the most relaxing of Muskoka neighbourhoods. With all that boat traffic, it could be hard to get a moment of peace in the summer months.
