Elevated and well-planned, this bright, spacious and attractive cottage or year-round home on Lake Cecebe features an insulated, attached 24’ x 27’ double garage and is situated on a no-exit, year-round municipal road.
This leafy and private 1.5 acres has 160ft of natural frontage on beautiful Lake Cecebe, part of the 40-mile Magnetawan River system in the Almaguin Highlands.
You will love the front entry through a skylighted sunroom, and be delighted with the high pine ceiling with large single beam support and linking post and beam construction (Douglas Fir). The open concept main level offers a spacious, thoughtfully designed kitchen/dining/living space with walkouts to two separate deck spaces; both with picturesque views of the lake.
The bright, eat-in kitchen features an array of storage and a very functional layout. The island preparation area with seating space, and generous walk-in pantry add to the convenience of this workspace. The stainless steel Kitchen Aid appliances include a large French door fridge-freezer, a dual fuel stove and dishwasher, as well as a Panasonic convection inverter/steam microwave.
A walkout from the dining room grants access to a partially covered 16’ x 16’ deck and creates additional space for entertaining, or simply relaxing and enjoying the majestic views.
Step down and relax in the cozy, well-lit living room which features a wood insert fireplace and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the lake. You can also access a second partially covered 16’ x 16’ deck. This outdoor area serves both the living room and the master suite.
Escape to your private master suite which features vaulted ceilings, a generous walk-through dressing room/closet space and lovely, large ensuite. The ensuite delivers a spa-like feel with double sinks, large glass-enclosed shower and double whirlpool tub with air-massage system. The ensuite is complimented with a heated tile floors for ultimate comfort.
The convenient main level laundry room is functional, easily accessible and includes Maytag front loading washer and dryer. Rounding out the main floor is a convenient two-piece guest bathroom.
The lower level with walk out creates a great family or guest space with two additional bedrooms, a studio/exercise room, a large family room with wood stove as well as a 4-piece bathroom. The lower level also features a utility room and a large workshop where you are granted access to a 24’ x 24’ storeroom under the garage, with exterior double-door exit for convenience.
The attached, insulated 24’ x 27’ garage has an automated door and an additional exterior door. From the garage, you can enter the home through an internal door leading to the mud room (with attic above). This space offers plenty of storage for outerwear and footwear. A second set of interior stairs runs down from the attached garage to the lower level.
Follow the scenic, established path down through the mature maples to the lake. Spend your afternoons lounging on the lakeside 10’ x 10’ deck space, waterfront fire-pit space and boat dock. Swimmers have the choice of a nearby swim raft or an additional sandy swimming area offering something for all ages.
The driveway leads to an abundance of parking, with a 24’ x 12’ steel-framed/vinyl-covered garage for additional storage. The property has a drilled well, septic, a high-efficiency propane furnace, an air exchanger, and features on-demand hot water. For efficiency this home is constructed with ICF foundation and Roxul insulation. This insulation in some internal walls, together with some solid core doors assists sound suppression. The roof shingles come with a 30 year warranty.
Conveniently located, the cottage is only a five minute boat ride or six minutes by car (four kilometres) from the quaint, friendly village of Magnetawan. The quiet village provides several amenities and useful services from a public school and several churches, to a post office, hotel with an attached restaurant, general store, Ahmic Marine, Home Hardware, Community Centre/Municipal Office, library and arena. Additional dining and shopping options can be found within a 15 min drive. Boat owners will find convenient water access to Port Carmen Marina on Lake Cecebe.
While the lock system in Magnetawan allows access to Ahmic Lake and the associated lake system, boat launching is available above and below the lock.
This home or cottage is truly the complete package, and is being sold turn-key for $919,950. Spend your days relaxing on the dock, fishing or exploring the shores of Lake Cecebe, or lounging on one of two private deck spaces. Either way, there are activities here for everyone.
