Block 13 Lot 11, West Hawk Lakefront (Howe Bay)



A lot of love has gone into this gorgeous lakefront cottage and it shows! These out-of-province owners have done a magnificent job, spending hundreds of thousands on upgrading and improvements. When you make your appointment to view this one don’t forget your cheque book!

The Lot – This higher profile natural growth lot is pure Canadian Shield with undeveloped views across Howe Bay. Rectangular shaped 100 x 164 feet deep, this lot offers great privacy at the water. Howe Bay is often the first water to open up in the Spring and this location offers great protection from ice damage. As windy conditions have increased over the years… it’s always calm in Howe Bay. Poured concrete stairs from the parking pad/garage have wide treads and are easily navigated (as is the newer stairway going from the cottage to the boathouse).

The Cottage – Originally constructed in the late 1950s, this building has undergone an extreme makeover! At 1255 square feet, the cottage offers 4 bedrooms including nice size primary bedroom with large windows facing the lake. Pined-out interior warms up the cottage nicely, as does the high efficiency wood-burning stove in the living room. All newer flooring throughout including carpeting and cork. Vaulted ceiling in the main living area features stain glass skylights that are solar powered back lit at night. The kitchen offers birch cabinetry, granite peninsula counter, and matching stainless steel appliances. The large upgraded bathroom features a double one-piece shower stall. The sunroom facing the lake will be your favourite room offering spectacular views and custom bar area with mini fridge. Happy hour anyone? Dual access from the sunroom and living room to a beautiful Brazilian Mahogany deck. The wood siding exterior is in great shape and the roof shingles were replaced on all structures in 2012. Extra sleeping quarters are provided with a bedroom with bay window built into the garage and a separate bunkie which makes for 6 bedrooms in total. If you thought this property couldn’t get any better you’d be wrong as the owners are virtually leaving all the high quality furnishings, appliances, and accessories with the cottage!
