Cottage of the Week: $720,000 for a modern escape on the banks of the Muskoka River

Cottage of the Week: $720,000 for a modern escape on the banks of the Muskoka River

Address: 23 Shellwood Shores Avenue
Neighbourhood: Huntsville, Ontario Agent: Andrew Bulloch, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd., Brokerage Price: $719,000

The Place: A bright, modern cottage built five years ago on the banks of the Muskoka River near Huntsville.

Bragging Rights: Thanks to Altius, a Liberty Village-based architecture firm that specializes in homes that blend into their natural settings, this cottage has several green features, including passive solar heating, natural ventilation and scores of reclaimed and recycled materials.

Big Selling Point: The modern and airy design proves that a cottage doesn’t have to have wood paneling and a dead moose on the wall.

Possible Deal Breaker: The house is on a river, not a lake, which helps to explain the relatively low price tag. However, two major lakes, Mary and Fairy are both a quick boat ride away.

By the Numbers: • 2,200 square feet • $719,000 • 3 bedrooms • 3 bathrooms • 1 garage workshop
