(Just prior to press time 2 offers came in. Property is now Sold Firm!)
Huntsville is the heart of the Muskoka region. For many this means being able to have the best of a tranquil life among the woods and easy access to the community and amenities which Huntsville offers. This is precisely what is waiting for a buyer at a property located at 785 East Waseosa Lake Road. The current owners, Louis and Gail Tusz, have literally built a tranquil family retreat, surrounded by the beautiful hardwood forest in the Lake Waseosa area.
This 14-acre property sits above Lake Waseosa, providing spectacular seasonal views. The surrounding woods include trails for walking or biking, with some bike ramps built into the trails for the mountain bike aficionado. Winter won’t keep you bundled up inside on this lovely property either as the family has built their own ski jump on the land so year-round recreation is easily at hand. There is even a maple sugar shack on the property. Fresh, homemade maple syrup can be yours, just a few steps away from the house.
You may be picturing a home surrounded by the woods with a lake nearby. You would be partially correct in this vision. While the property is located within a naturally wooded area, the home itself sits on a small hilltop which has been cleared and landscaped, providing a lovely wide-open area, where one can take in a breath of fresh air and feel the expansion of nature all around, without feeling closed in by the forest.
Louis and Gail established their property this way for a reason, to raise their family in an ideal setting. In fact, the home on East Waseosa Lake Road is how they met. As Gail told us, “We both moved to Huntsville for teaching jobs. I met Louis the summer that he started to build his house. I had come here for a teaching job and one of the first social events where we met each other was at his roofing party.” Twenty-eight years later, with 4 children grown and on their own, the Tuszs have decided that it is time for another family to enjoy the home they built together.
The home combines Victorian architectural style with farmhouse features such as board and batten & wainscotting, making for a home full of character and comfort. The angled rooflines also delineate the shape of the upper bedrooms and bathroom, giving each room a unique feel and style.
There are 3 bedrooms, with the master bedroom and the two other bedrooms on the top floor with a large bathroom. There is a study on the main floor, which could also be used as a 4th bedroom, perfect for guests. The main level also features a full bath, open kitchen with breakfast nook and spacious a living and dining room – all very inviting spaces. The lower level includes a full garage with workshop space, as well as a family room and rec-room. There are plenty of closets throughout the house; ample room for storage needs.
Of all the rooms in the home, The Tuszs’ favourite spaces are the kitchen with its windows which provide some of the best views of the property, and the cozy screened room which is just off the kitchen. From here many a sunset has been enjoyed, and the tranquil sound of birds singing compliments the deer which are known to cross the property throughout the year.
Another favourite feature of the property is the open space which surrounds the home. The home sits across the road from Lake Waseosa, with a winding paved drive leading up to it. There has always been plenty of room for the children to play without the worry of traffic. Add in a fire pit and backyard deck and you have the perfect setting for entertaining friends too. Outdoor hobbyists can also take advantage of the charming chicken coop, built to match the home, and the ample space in the storage shed for recreational gear.
This property on East Waseosa Lake Road offers the best of both worlds; a tranquil retreat in the woods, with easy access to the thriving community of Huntsville. Here, you can get away from it all without feeling isolated. If this sounds like paradise to you, this home at 785 East Waseosa Lake Road could be just the property for you.
