Cottage of the Week: $330,000 for a pint-sized cottage with a dock and a sandy beach

Cottage of the Week: $330,000 for a pint-sized cottage with a dock and a sandy beach

Address: 1089 Thumb Creek Trail
Neighbourhood: Dwight, Ontario Agent: Sue Morrison, Re/Max North Country Realty Inc., Brokerage Price: $329,900

The Place: A cheery, farmhouse red cottage sitting above a packed sand beach on Oxtongue Lake, between Lake of Bays and Algonquin Provincial Park.

Bragging Rights: The property is proof you don’t have to spend millions to get a view of the water, a private dock and even a (miniature) guest house. Friends will praise your real-estate savvy.

Big Selling Point: The same family who built the cottage in 1957 have owned it ever since. They’ve maintained it beautifully and have renovated the kitchen, roof and the bathroom in the past decade.

Possible Deal Breaker: At 750 square feet, the space is bigger than many city condos, but it may still feel tight when forced inside on rainy weekends.

By the Numbers: • $329,900 • $1,687 in taxes • 750 square feet • 56 years old • 2 bedrooms • 1 bathroom • 1 bunkie
