At the entrance to the Thousand Islands, on the sought-after Bateau Channel with over 160’ of level shoreline, this beautiful property is offered for the first time in over 60 years.
In the 1970’s, a two-storey home was added to an existing cottage. On the main floor is a spacious kitchen with an adjacent family room that opens out to the deck. There is a formal dining room and living room. Down just a few steps is a 3pc bathroom, laundry room, and part of the original cottage. This has served as a fabulous rec room with a kitchenette, and very generous screened in porch.
On the second floor of the main house, there are three bedrooms and three baths. The Primary bedroom has a balcony overlooking the grounds and waterfront, and the bedroom is thoughtfully designed with two ensuite bathrooms and a walk-in closet. There is an undeveloped full height basement below the main house, which has a walk-out to the grounds. Double attached carport and double detached garage.
The grounds are what make the property truly special, with sand beach, cocktail deck, dock and boathouse, pool area and gazebo, with trees on either side providing privacy from neighbouring properties which are also year-round residences.
This property is an estate sale offered in ‘As is’ condition, but there is a great deal of potential for creating a magnificent year-round retreat.
Howe Island, at the western entrance to the magnificent Thousand Islands, is a richly diverse recreational paradise, with world-class sailing, power boating and water sports. It is also a great place for running, cycling and walking in a rural setting.
Two ferry services connect the island with the mainland year round. Either ferry runs on demand and takes 5-10 minutes to board and cross the channel. The main ferry (west) is just 17km from Kingston City Hall, and the east ferry is just 5 minutes from Gananoque, making the resources and amenities of these two communities convenient to the residents of the island.
