Cottage of the Week: $675,000 for a waterfront cottage with plenty of beach for your buck
The Place: A three-bedroom family cottage in the quaint town of Tiny on Georgian Bay.
Bragging Rights: Finding a large, well-maintained waterfront property in cottage country for under a million can be a challenge, which makes this roomy home feel like a steal at under $700,000.
Big Selling Point: The 82 feet of sandy beach offers an unobstructed view of the bay, as well as undisputed sandcastle-making opportunity.
Possible Deal Breaker: Though the upstairs loft is just big enough for four beds, a low ceiling means anyone who sleeps up there won’t be able to stand without bumping their heads. Kids under five feet tall shouldn’t have problems, though. There are three full-sized bedrooms on the main floor, for the adults.
By The Numbers:
• $4,300 in property taxes
• 2,030 square feet
• 600-square-foot garage and workshop
• 82 feet of water frontage
• 35 years old, approximately
• 3 bedrooms
