1146 Eilean Gowan Island, Bracebridge, ON
Listed at $ 1,900,000
This cherished Lake Muskoka island gem has been loved by the same family for over 30 years. Situated on the west side of Eilean Gowan Island (boat access) with 340 ft of shoreline, the long lake south west sunset views are the perfect spot to start creating those Muskoka memories. The 0.79 acre lot is situated on a point with mature trees, a gentle granite shoreline, has few stairs and lots of tableland to run around easily. The cottage has 3 bedrooms, including a massive master with ensuite, and large private balcony overlooking the lake. The open plan kitchen, dining, and living areas offer fantastic entertaining space and great space for family gatherings and cozy nights around the stunning stone fireplace. The wall to wall windows bring the outside in, and fill the entire cottage with sunlight. A large multi level deck provides loads of space for barbecuing, hanging out by the fire table, or just chilling and reading a book, appreciating the fantastic views and sun. There is also an oversized bunkie, with a large deck, 2 piece bath and outdoor shower. With wall to wall windows it’s a great spot for additional guests or kids and feels spacious and light filled. Use the spaces as they are or add on/rebuild to suit. Better yet, at the waters edge is a newly rebuilt 2 slip dock with boathouse potential and a generous dock house to to store water toys. A covered mainland slip at Spirit Bay Marina near Bracebridge is a quick 5 minute boat ride away. Eilean Gowan is one of the biggest islands on Lake Muskoka and offers a great hiking trail which meanders through the woods around the island, so there is never an excuse to not be active. Sailing School for the kids (6+) nearby; a racquet club (separate membership) and yoga /fitness classes are offered at the marina; and Kirrie Glen golf course is a quick boat ride away. This spot is eagerly awaiting its new family to add to its happy history.
