Taxes: $3,728 (2018)

Days on the market: Five

Listing agent: Jeanette Grant, Bosley Real Estate Ltd.

This 1,600-square-foot home was designed to showcase the view and provide easy access to the dock and beach.

THE ACTION

Just 15 minutes west of Huntsville and 45 minutes west of Algonquin Provincial Park, this three-bedroom bungalow hugs 105 feet of Fox Lake’s shoreline. It sat on the market listed at $569,000 less than two years ago. This June, the sellers brought on agent Jeanette Grant, who raised the asking price, set up a broad promotional effort and did some staging. Quickly, two offers emerged.

“More buyers from the GTA than Muskoka were looking at this one,” said Ms. Grant, who lives and works in both markets.

“I sold this property $50,000 over list in five days, while a cottage in close proximity listed at the same time by another agent, took 60 days to sell for $45,000 under its original list price.”

WHAT THEY GOT

This 1,600-square-foot home was designed to showcase the view and provide easy access to the dock and beach. There is a deck off the dining room and a walkout from the 1,200-square-foot basement.

There are vaulted wood ceilings in two bedrooms and the living room. The latter also features a fireplace.

Updates include a new furnace and roof, in addition to stainless steel kitchen appliances. A dry bar is located in a lower-level recreation area.

Outside, there is 12-car parking and double garage.

THE AGENT’S TAKE

“It has a really beautiful view of a Crown island directly in front,” Ms. Grant said.

“The lovely, sandy beach and waterfront were accessible from a gentle slope, which were big attractions for the buyers.”

The rich collection of urban amenities nearby was also enticing. “It’s in close proximity to Huntsville – a truly fabulous, friendly community,” Ms. Grant said.

“It has a hospital, shops, restaurants, a brew pub, great live music and performing arts events, like Nuit Blanche North.”
