The open concept living room showcases a wood-panelled vaulted ceiling with two ceiling fans and track lighting - and full wall of windows for fantastic lake views. The wood-burning Heatilator fireplace is surrounded by a stacked stone facade, and the walk-out opens onto a balcony with steps down to the ground level, as well as a privacy wall and glass railing to optimize the lake views.

Construction on this home was completed in 2000, with the interior completely renovated top-to-bottom between 2014-2017. Exterior renovations include Maibec shingle siding; windows; new eavestroughing with rain guard and downspouts; new roofs; and the entry system and porch on the roadside elevation.
Other great features of the home include: R50 ceiling insulation (added during the renovation); a drilled well with a water filtration and softening system; double walled oil tank (installed in 2013); central air conditioning and HRV (heat recovery ventilation); an installed security system; all existing window treatments, as well as 3M coating tint on the lakeside main level windows to repel summer sun, preserve heat in winter, and to prevent fading.
This home is located in an exceptionally family- and pet-friendly neighbourhood, is close to the Rice Lake Conservation Area, and will have quick access (via County Rd 9) to Hwy 407 when the extension to Hwy 35/115 is completed in late 2020. Access to Hwy 401 is a short 16 minute drive by car - with Port Hope and Cobourg being 20-25 minutes away (respectively), for shopping, entertainment, everyday essential needs, as well as for recreational or professional services and facilities.
