The last week of summer. For some, cottaging is becoming a memory. Last week a delightful 3 bed cottage with bunkie came to market. The land level and welcoming, with shelving rock across its shore. The view, wide open, graced by sunsets. At 150′ of lakefront the property wouldn’t be considered large, but with neighbours on both sides at the far ends of theirs, it felt like 350′. Privacy assured!
The building was erected in 1959 and owned by the same family the whole time. More than 60 years of memories. Not large and definitely not current, it was still a nice year round space that harkened back to the mid-century with genuine design touches, that if not to be treasured, then certainly to be remembered. The view? Timeless.
By the end of the first day, there were 2 offers. By next afternoon there were 5. I’m sure the sellers were pleased by the response which must have made leaving a little easier. The question, though, remains unanswered. How much over ask did it go for?
Great properties are hard to come by. Take a look and see if any great properties came to market this week…
