18R12 Florence Island, Lake Rosseau, ON

Listed at $ 4,479,000 – SOLD

First time offered for sale.  Steeped in history that reaches back almost a century, this South Lake Rosseau island cottage is located between Port Carling & Windermere. It has spectacular long lake vistas, deep water for boating & swimming, and an adjacent sandy beach perfect for kids and furry favourites!  With 1170 feet of west and north facing frontage on two adjacent lots there is no shortage of incredible potential.  The architecturally designed sun-filled and winterized cottage was built with family in mind. Referred to as Pinerocks it sits perched atop a rock shelf with towering pines all around. With 3771sq ft, there are 6 generously sized bedrooms and 3.5 baths spread over 2 separate sleeping wings with an open concept main floor  and incredible vaulted ceilings below. A separate guest bunkie with the most fantastic views allows for overflow.  In addition a 2.5 slip boathouse with accommodation and sundeck plus a separate oversized covered boatport give ample space for all the toys. An inclinator and diesel backup generator add convenience, and the original clifftop tennis court footprint from the 1920s is waiting to be updated and put to good use. Westerly and northerly facing, sun all day somewhere. A stone breakwall and level lawns amongst rocky pines and private points over 8.16 acres give everyone a spot to find their very own sanctuary. Decks and docks call out for sunbathing, reading, games, family meals, and social spaces are abundant. Property is comprised of 2 separate parcels of land; the 2.83 acre lot contains all the buildings while 5.33 acre lot located in the channel facing Wellesley Island has no development on it.  Better yet, this channel has 2 yellow markers marking rocks which deter boat traffic. Incredible pieces of land with footprints that one would kill for in this day and age. Property being sold as is where is. Renovate or rebuild to suit. Florence Island has less than 20 properties on it and is a 5 minute boat ride from Parkers Marina where you would leave the car.
