Description

Location: Bittern Lake, Novar, Ontario


Welcome to the essence of cottage luxury in the heart of Almaguin Highlands on the tranquil shores of Bittern Lake. Tastefully designed with great attention to detail, the combination of modern stainless-steel appliances, beautiful furnishings, elegant antiques, and paintings gives this living space a country club feel, perfect for family gatherings.

Located just north of the town of Huntsville, this property is nestled on a picturesque western exposure setting and surrounded by over a hundred acres of untouched land, creating a natural buffer, and providing an exceptionally quiet ambiance.

Bittern Lake is a small and private lake with only a few well-spaced cottages, creating a peaceful backdrop. The lake has no public access and none of the owners use motorboats, making it very serene and clean. 

This stunning 3,600 sq. ft. one-of-a-kind custom built five-bedroom cottage boasts wonderful modern architectural features while maintaining a traditional cottage design. The foyer leads to a spectacular lake view and ambient light through wall-to-wall front windows. The spacious living/dining/ kitchen areas all face the lake with 12ft ceilings and gorgeous cherry wood flooring throughout. 

The cottage is spilt on two levels, with superb layouts catering to one or two families. The cottage has 5 bedrooms. The main level has three-bedrooms (two with ensuites) and a two-piece powder room. The master bedroom features a queen bed, a 42” flat screen smart TV, a four-piece ensuite and views of the lake. The second bedroom has a double bed and a three-piece ensuite including a steam shower. The third bedroom features a daybed and trundle frame set (single). 

The main floor offers open concept living/dining and kitchen space. A double-sided wood burning fireplace divides the dining space from the family room which has a couch, two love seats and armchairs. The dining room offers a large antique wooden table. Across from the kitchen are two extra couches, having just the right amount of space to gather as meals are prepared. The kitchen provides new stainless-steel appliances, plenty of counter space, and a large island with three stools. A laundry room is also located on this level, equipped with a washer and dryer. 

Off the main living space there is a huge L-shaped wrap around deck with glass railings, which provides peaceful lake views. Ample patio furnishings and barbeque make this an ideal spot to relax and enjoy evening sunsets. 

The lower level has a second alluring, propane, double sided stone fireplace - the centerpiece in this living space with a total of two couches, and four armchairs. The second master suite has a queen bed and gorgeous four-piece ensuite with a steam shower. The fifth bedroom features two twin beds with a small TV, dresser, and closet. A three-piece bathroom, exercise room-with a rowing machine, bar fridge and waterfront facing Muskoka room completes this walk-out level. 

With an expansive lake-facing lawn gently sloping down to a sandy waterfront and sizable dock, this property caters to both young and old alike. There are plenty of water toys for a carefree paddle, such as two kayaks, and two paddle boards. All ages can gather around the firepit as the sun dips below the horizon and evening settles in, bringing another day in cottage country to a close. 

A variety of local attractions in Huntsville and Burks Falls include Arrowhead Provincial Park, TreeTop Trekking, Muskoka Heritage Place, the Algonquin Theatre, Huntsville Festival of the Arts and the Screaming Heads outdoor Sculptures, something to explore for all ages.
