1059 Old Portage Road, Gravenhurst, ON

Lake Muskoka sunsets. This west facing 4 bed, 3 bath cottage with has a vantage point like few others on the lake. Perched atop a cliff the vibe is tranquil and private with the neighbouring properties having their residences down below. This well maintained cottage is incredibly private and features a massive deck with glass railings, stretching across the entire front of the building and offers many different spaces for outdoor eating, entertaining, kids play or just enjoying the view. Inside the cottage is cedar lined, and features an open concept kitchen, dining, living space with sliding glass doors on the deck and a large light filled Muskoka Room to boot. There are three good sized bedrooms which share 2 baths and a generously sized primary suite that overlooks the deck and lake at the far end of the building. Heading down the stair tower to the waters edge you’ll find a grandfathered 500sq ft guest cottage with 2 bedrooms, a 3 piece bath, and a kitchen, and has its own deck which connects to the top of the boat port. The deep water, one boat slip boat port is complemented with beach on either side, for young, old, and furry friends. This location, minutes from town by car or boat, offers incredible potential and is easy to upgrade to a 4 season cottage or home. The view at the top, combined with the flat table land down below and the water’s edge accommodation/entertaining space are worth their weight in gold. This property is one you simply have to see in person to appreciate just what it has to offer, and to allow you to imagine the possibilities. Sunsets, big lake boating, four season rental income potential and a lifetime of memories to be made.
