Cottage of the Week: $2.7 million for a Georgian Bay getaway with a pirate ship

Cottage of the Week: $2.7 million for a Georgian Bay getaway with a pirate ship

NEIGHBOURHOOD: Georgian Bay

AGENT: Bob Emmett and Fred Shaw, Royal LePage Four Seasons Real Estate Centre, Brokerage

PRICE: $2,650,000

THE PLACE: A unique (how many homes greet you with a totem pole at the front door?) and grandiose (check out the chandelier in the bathroom) cottage that still maintains a home-y feel, thanks to wide-plank wood floors, reclaimed wood-beam ceilings and that old cottage staple, a moose head on the wall.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: The 14-seat movie theatre means you won’t have kids underfoot on rainy days.

BIG SELLING POINT: We’ve seen a lot of cottages, but none with a cooler water feature than this offshore pirate boat and floating dock. It’s the kind of thing the kid from Blank Check would buy. Avast, ye mateys!

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: As one of the most kid-friendly cottages around (see movie theatre and pirate boat, above), you’re going to have a lot of the neighbourhood rugrats jumping around your property. Better invest in the services of a lifeguard.

BY THE NUMBERS: • $2,650,000 • 4 bedrooms • 5 bathrooms • 315 feet of waterfront • 3 stone fireplaces • 2-slip boathouse • 1 grand piano • 1 pirate ship
