Own a home in one of Canada’s National Parks! The 1000 Islands National Park is one of Canada’s smaller parks and is comprised of a number of island properties. One of the largest properties is a significant portion of Hill Island, the island that the 1000 Islands International Bridge jumps over on its way to New York State. The park area is totally natural and unspoiled. This property is a year-round, drive to home. The property is private, wooded and serene. With only 10 other homes on this road and not being a “through road,” it is absolutely living on “a road less travelled”.
The quality of the woodwork and the soaring ceilings give this home a very cool Scandinavian and Zen-like feel. The house is in perfect condition. The property offers 197 feet of deep, clean shoreline with a 34-foot boat port with a 23-foot slip, a rare commodity in the islands. The roof of the boat port is a fabulous deck from which to watch passing boat traffic and the sunset.
There are multiple walk-outs from the main level of the house onto the deck overlooking the water and there is a walk-out from the lower level media room.
The very large master has wall to wall windows overlooking the river, a walk out to a private deck and a 4 piece ensuite bathroom.
The 2 other bedrooms in this home, whilst not having water views, overlook parkland which is spectacular.
As the house is built on a slope there is no basement per sea. The lower level is a great entertaining space complete with a beautiful stone fireplace and walk-out to a small stone patio.
The 1000 Islands is one of Canada’s best known, least visited vacation and retirement playgrounds. It is an easy drive on 4 lane highways or a quick train ride straight to Gananoque. Come and visit and you will never leave!
This home is currently listed at $889,000. For more information on this listing, please contact Georgina Ratcliffe at (416) 925-9191.
