Always loved the idea of a cottage in the woods? What about a home by the river?
This lovely Royal Home provides the best of both worlds with its 3 acre wooded lot on the Saugeen River! The cozy and welcoming sunken living room with fireplace keeps main level warm. Lots of windows, skylights and glass doors allow for lots of natural light and bring the outdoors in. A galley kitchen with a breakfast bar sits adjacent to the dining area and a walk out to a deck that’s the perfect spot for your BBQ. The master bedroom offers a walk out to a deck that’s large enough for a patio set and a seat in the sun while you listen to the river gurgling nearby. The rest of the spacious lower level rooms are currently set up to comfortably hold as many overnight guests as possible plus there’s a large family room, big enough for everyone to gather for popcorn and a movie or a rowdy game of ping-pong.
A short walk through the cedar woods takes you to a generous guest cabin/bunkie with its own toasty wood fire, sleeping loft and a great view of the water – the perfect spot for teens and visitors to hang out in their own space. An awesome tree house keeps the younger set occupied and the dock is in an ideal spot, beside the river that runs along the northern edge of the property, for adults to supervise from a distance while enjoying the beautiful private setting!
This R2000 home received a new 50 year steel roof in 2005, which is still under warranty. The carport at road can be used for parking or firewood and there’s a garden shed for outdoor storage. This is a great location, close to the Beaver Valley Ski Club, and all the amenities offered by the towns of Flesherton, Markdale and Durham. Whether you’re looking for a cottage or year-round home, everything you need is right here in the West Grey countryside!
