Cottage of the Week: $2 million for a Haliburton new-build with plenty of lake frontage
The Place: A sprawling family cottage in Haliburton, with wood interiors.
Bragging Rights: Building wasn’t permitted on the west shore of Kennisis Lake until about a decade ago, so all of the cottages along the strip are shiny and new. There are no dilapidated shacks to mar the two-million-dollar view.
Big Selling Point: With 3.17 acres of land and 200 feet of water frontage, this place is a particularly spacious getaway for the cooped-up city dweller.
Possible Deal Breaker: The lower level is currently unfinished. Adding a fourth bedroom or a rec room would require some extra cash.
By The Numbers:
• $7,986 in property taxes (2013)
• 3.17 acres of land
• 4,284 square feet
• 200 feet of water frontage
• 6 bathrooms
• 3 bedrooms
• 3-car parking
• 1 wood-burning fireplace
