Known as the “Old Avery Homestead,” this special and unique MUSKOKA property offers a deep connection to local history, with shore frontage of 233' on a navigable creek with access to Lake of Bays & Paint Lake. Two-storey, 3-bdrm home (1967 sq ft) consists of an original (circa 1898) square log core (present day living/dining area) together with a framed addition (circa 1921), which all brims with country character and charm. Most of the 2.15 level acres are fenced for dogs, with gates allowing access to forested paths down to the water and along the banks of Paint Lake Creek and Tramway Creek. A small dock out of the way of traffic is a perfect spot to park your boat for trips into Dorset on Trading Bay or water-skiing & bass/pike fishing on Paint Lake. There's an extremely well-built and thoughtfully designed 30’x40’ garage (built in 2013) with an oversized, winterized 2 car bay, a large separate workshop/hobby area, 3 climate zones with heated floors and heat pump, security system and an approx 760 sq ft second floor above the garage finished with drywall and beautifully trimmed in pine, presently occupied by tenants. Solar panels fuel a battery backup system that runs the entire house in the event of power failures, and also feed power back to the grid on a transferable contract that pays out approx $4,000 annually until 2033. Very level and mostly cleared, west-facing backyard is lined with 44 lilac trees along one side and plenty of space for a huge garden in full sunlight. Great abundance of crown land & public trails in the area for seasonal activities, which include snowmobiling, ATVing, cycling, snowshoeing, hunting, hiking, etc. The town of Dorset is only 5 minutes away, where there are Canada's Best Country Store (voted as #1 by The Toronto Star), public beach, numerous stores, church, lookout tower, marinas & docking, etc. Located only 2.5 hrs from Toronto. The house will need some TLC. 24 hour notice for showings is required. (id:49585)
