Available for immediate possession and move-in-ready, this custom renovated timber frame cottage is in sheltered Jackfish Bay at the north end of West Hawk Lake. This 5 bedroom, 3 full bathroom cottage has approximately 2,900 square feet of developed space (under roof) including its covered front deck, and is located on a south-facing level lot close to the water with beautiful unobstructed views, 100’ of private lake frontage, a pipe dock with attached floater dock capable of securing 4-5 boats, 9’ swimming depth off end of the dock, a sandy beach to the side of the dock area with shallow waters which are ideal for young children, and an 8’x8’ dock shed and pumphouse at water’s edge for storage of water toys, boat accessories and the all important beer fridge.
This cottage was extensively renovated and expanded by Bill Benson Carpentry in the 2009 to 2014 period (copies of all permits and surveys are available) and has many features that make it a truly special and unique cottage – a large 18’x24’ custom kitchen and adjacent 16’x20’ screen porch both facing south overlooking the lake, a large private 18’x18’ living room at the rear of cottage with beautiful cliff views, custom timber frame work throughout, custom rock work, vaulted ceilings throughout, skylights, engineered hardwood flooring throughout, tiled and heated bathroom floors, large private master bedroom and ensuite on second floor, a convenient separate utility room including extra fridge, deep freezer, washer/dryer and extra storage, custom interior window coverings and ceiling fans throughout, Restoration Hardware light fixtures, marble bathroom vanities and storage towers, and 3 wood burning fireplaces including a unique Rumford fireplace in the living room with custom cement hearth and cold rolled steel surround, and a Jotul wood stove in the screen porch. The kitchen features granite countertops, 2 dishwashers, 2 sinks, a large island, garburator, new fridge, new stove/hood fan, microwave, separate wine fridge and coffee bar area, corner pantry, ample cupboards and storage space, and custom cabinetry. The kitchen adjoins a beautiful screen porch that has 10 screened windows (timber framed) all with mylar panels and blinds.
The exterior of the cottage features cedar wood siding on the entire cottage, cultured stone rock work, a new shingle roof less than 10 years old, new metal clad windows throughout, a large 340 square foot timber framed covered front deck providing shelter from wind and sun and beautiful unobstructed views overlooking the lake, a large grassed backyard with trampoline and swing set and raised herb garden, a professionally landscaped rock patio and fire-pit area, a covered and sheltered BBQ area and a Northern Lights cedar soaker hot tub overlooking the lake.
A significant feature of this property is its modern septic system at the rear of the property built by Grant Mason Plumbing in 2014 (copy of permit available) consisting of an underground holding tank, automatic pump system and large buried septic field. All grey and black water is discharged into the septic field (all sinks, flush toilets, showers, bathtub, dishwashers and washing machine) meaning no pump outs and no outhouses. This modern, approved septic system and discharge field promotes environmental stewardship and adds significant value as well as safety and convenience to this property. The Province of Manitoba crown lease for this property was recently renewed for a 21-year period ending 2040 with an annual lease/service fee of approximately $1,490 for 2021.
This is a water access property that is only a 30 second boat ride from convenient Big Island Landing, and typically there is a well-maintained winter ice road right to the property for those interested in winter usage. Call Thor at 204-250-6654 to schedule your appointment today!
