Whether embracing the tradition of seasonal Island living with family and friends or embarking on a development journey to create a private family compound or tourist establishment, this property offers a boundless canvas of potential. Meandering pathways adorned with flagstone accents lead to a cluster of seven original cabins, each close to one another on the south side of the property. The lay of the land is gracefully accentuated with natural granite rock, slight elevation changes and an expansive open field while having panoramic views of Lake Muskoka, punctuated by the quaint silhouette of nearby islands. A collection of seven snug cabins awaits, with five meticulously refurbished to exude a charming rustic cottage vibe. Among them, a combined Kitchen, Living, and Muskoka Room cabin boasts an elevated deck offering picturesque views of the lake. Additionally, there are five cabins with bedrooms, two bathrooms, laundry facilities, a work shed, and one original cabin situated at the water's edge, its unique footprint holding intrinsic value. Fronting on 800 feet of pristine Muskoka shoreline, graced by two existing docks and a charming flagstone waterside patio, this haven invites one to envision summer on the lake. Come discover a wonderful offering on the north side of Taylor Island, where privacy meets opportunity. (id:11731)
