Cottage of the Week: $9.85 million for a 50-acre private estate in Georgian Bay
The Place: A millionaire’s playground in Georgian Bay that includes half a kilometre of sandy beach, a private harbour and a large stretch of forest filled with nature trails.
Bragging Rights: The 50-acre property, aptly named Faraway, offers more than enough room to be alone. There’s even a separate 1,900-square-foot house for visiting friends and relatives, so they won’t interrupt your Zen-like solitude.
Big Selling Point: The list of inclusions includes three snowmobiles, two ATVs, three off-road vehicles, one pontoon boat and two custom 30-foot boats. Just pray that gas prices don’t spike.
Possible Deal Breaker: The luxe furnishings are also part of the package, which animal lovers might not see as a good thing.
