1618 Browning Island, Lake Muskoka, Bracebridge, ON

Listed at $ 2,450,000 


Meticulously maintained Lake Muskoka island gem. Enjoy absolutely incredible wide lake vistas up Lake Muskoka from inside the cottage, deck, dock or anywhere on the 435ft west facing shore! Beautiful Muskoka rock outcroppings abound on the lot. This 5+1 bed, 1.5 bath 2000 sq ft cottage with single slip boathouse has been in the same family for 50+ years. The open concept layout and bunkie accommodates large gatherings of friends and family whether sleeping 13 or entertaining for 20+. The wrap around deck and wall of windows across the front of the building facing the lake provide endless views of both sunsets and storms! With a gentle 30+ steps up from the dock to cottage door, there is plenty of easily traversable table land for kids and dogs to roam. At the waters edge the single slip boathouse and spacious dock accommodates parking for 3 boats and the shoreline has a gentle slope with many points of entry, all clean and increasingly deep water -8 ft end of boathouse. Note: straight-line frontage is over 300ft so zoning would allow for a larger boathouse. The cottage was gutted to the studs and added onto in 1986, it’s since had a new roof, dock (cribs included) and decking in the last 2 years. We seriously can’t decide whats better; all day sun and those sought after Muskoka sunsets or the proximity back to mainland; it’s a quick 5 minute boat ride back to Allport Marina (additional $2625/season). This is truly an A+ property where memories will be made for years to come!
