The place

A recently built home on Sparrow Lake.

The history

The sellers, who wanted more space for their family, built this cottage in 2010. The bunkhouse alone, with three bunk beds, sleeps six comfortably. The lot was previously empty.

Here’s the dining area, with a view of the great room:


The main living area has a high, vaulted ceiling:


The dining area is continuous with the kitchen:

The home has a sunroom with its own fireplace:

And the other:


There’s a seating area in the loft above the great room:

This bedroom is in the bunkhouse. Seems like a good place to put the kids and their friends and/or a group of delightful ragamuffins and their ringleader, Annie:


Big selling point

The great room has lofted ceilings, arched beams, extra-tall windows and a terrace with views of the lake.

Possible deal breaker

Though the property comes with two docks, families who prefer a sandy entrance to the water, as opposed to a rocky shore, may need to find another place to lay their towels:
