For about the same price as a luxury three-bedroom condo in Rosedale, an office space in Moss Park, or even an empty lot in Hoggs Hollow, you could potentially own a private waterfront estate. water with six cabins, a beach, a marina, a restaurant, several boats and a magnificent 12,000 square foot pavilion on Lake Nipissing.
That’s real estate in Ontario, for you — completely unbalanced, especially when comparing property prices in and around Toronto with those in Northern Ontario.
The property I have my eyes on today isn’t cheap at $4,999,000, but it’s a complete four-season resort (or “family resort,” for wealthier buyers.)
“Even the most diehard city dweller might find it hard to resist the urge to visit our stunning Nipissing Retreat/Family Compound!” reads a listing for the idyllic 32-acre estate at 513 Lemieux Road. in Monetville, Ontario.
“This spectacular property is nestled against a breathtaking backdrop of Northern Ontario and complimented by the crystal clear waters of a protected cove on the West Arm of Lake Nipissing. A truly rare private lakefront estate.”
Private, unless you want to earn extra money by renting out your winterized cabins to 40+ people at a time.
Summer, winter, spring and fall, it seems.
The estate currently operates as Saenchiur Flechey Resort, offering “friendly service, well-appointed accommodation and a host of activities to delight the whole family”.
A lengthy description of the property on real estate agent Kimberly-Ann Narozanski’s website suggests the resort’s owners are selling everything, calling it a “turnkey business” for ambitious buyers who want to keep the resort running. or, better yet, restore it to full capacity.
As it stands, the resort business is only partially operational – the majestic main lodge has been moved into a home for the current owners of the property, but functioned as a full amenity space on three levels with a conference center, bar and “top commercial kitchen.”
According to the listing, the lodge once hosted events, conferences, weddings, regattas and banquets, as well as its own “five-star, four-season restaurant.”
Inside the lodge there is also a bar. . .
A training room (I don’t know if the inversion table or the massage chair are included in the price of the property)…
A “private bunker place for wine stains”…
And a dedicated “pub and games room”.
The main lodge also has a self-contained owner’s suite and on-site apartments that can be used as staff quarters or additional rental space.
Nostalgic dream terms dot the list: “Canadian stone hearth”, “Douglas fir post and beam construction”, “Multi-screen decks with many enclaves”.
I could also come on board with a large legal household…
Sauna Slash, hot tub, boardwalk, beach, boat launch…
Yes, this place would make a great summer camp for adults.
You can get a better look at the entire estate with this non-embedable drone video, and the real estate agent can send you a full list of chattels if you really have $5 million and are seriously considering a move. buy this magnificent property.
You won’t be able to sunbathe on the docks all day and expect this place to run on its own – lots of moving parts and probably people you should hire – but it looks like a really nice place to spend 100 % of your time. time, if I have to choose a place.
Perfect for another pandy, if you have the resources and tons of Carhartt in your closet.
