Many properties may be lakefront; however, very few own their entire lake. No motorboats. No noise. No pollution. Crystal clear spring fed approximately 30 acre swimming lake (40 feet deep) stands in the middle of this unbelievable back-to-nature 306 acre secluded paradise. Swim out to the floating platform in the middle of the lake or take the canoe out fishing. There are no neighbours around. Forests of hardwood and evergreens flourish to create complete privacy. Take the ATV out or go for a hike along the kilometres of trails cut throughout the property. With light pollution and urban sprawl everywhere, McGibbon Lake is Eden personified.
You will not be the only family to make McGibbon Lake your home. Families of deer, rabbits, ducks, loons, and Canada Geese have enjoyed the seclusion, serenity, and forests of the property for many years. A place where time stands still. Where you can enjoy a glass of wine on the dock at night and gaze at the constellation of stars above. In the morning, while coffee is brewing, there is nothing as enchanting as the call of the loon from the lake.
Behind subdued entry gates and set back about 800 metres from the main road, the two all seasons residences are very much understated and sympathetic to the surrounding environment. Rustic on the exterior yet enchanting and meticulous on the interiors.
The main 1,999 square foot red cedar main house (built in 2001) is quaint and unpretentious, with view onto the lake. The tongue and groove sun-filled Muskoka room, off of the kitchen, is the perfect spot to read a book. Open concept living / dining / kitchen has cathedral ceiling. Fully finished lower level adds additional living space.
A 800 metre walk away is the 1,588 square foot post-and-beam guest house (built in 2006).
Both houses have independent heating & cooling systems, hot water tanks, 280 foot deep wells and septic systems. Internet and TV. The separate garage measures 60 x 40 feet. The three buildings, as well as the lands, have been expertly attended to and are in superb condition.
