The history

The cottage was originally built in the 1980s. A realtor couple bought it three years ago and transformed it into a modern retreat. They turned six smaller bedrooms into four larger suites, and swapped the pine floors for engineered oak. They also added the dock and a two-car garage.

Big selling point

There are plenty of outdoor chilling areas, but with a 65-inch TV and Bose surround sound system, rainy days wouldn’t be so bad, either. Since the cottage is winterized and easily accessible by car, the new owners could potentially live here year-round.

Possible deal breaker

Or, you could buy a place in Rosedale for a similar price.
