Cottage of the Week: $2 million for a log cabin with a sunset view of Lake Simcoe
ADDRESS: 362 Murray Boulevard, Innisfil
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Big Bay Point, Lake Simcoe
AGENT: Mykhaylo Arkhypkin, Sutton Group-Admiral Realty
THE PLACE: An upscale, two-storey log cabin on the shore of Lake Simcoe in Innisfil.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: While your Muskoka-bound friends are stuck in traffic, you’ll have been at the cottage for hours. This place is about an hour’s drive from the city, letting you sit on the dock, not the 400.
BIG SELLING POINT: The log cabin exterior belies a luxe interior, with features like a 48-inch gas stove, a hand-crafted solid wood staircase, nine skylights and a separate shower and tub in the master ensuite.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: An enormous and very contentious resort has been proposed for Big Bay Point. This could be seen as a plus for those who like fancy amenities, but if you’re looking for peace and quiet, the area may soon get a whole lot more crowded.
BY THE NUMBERS:
• $8,728.64 in taxes (2012)
• 134 feet of waterfront
• 9 skylights
• 4 bathrooms
• 3 bedrooms
