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

• $7,830 in property taxes (2012)
• 1.3 acres
• 4 bedrooms
• 3 bathrooms
