Address: 20861 Wye Creek Drive
Neighbourhood: Fanshawe Lake
Agent: Stephanie Carson, Royal LePage Triland Realty
A bungalow-style cottage on the quiet, northern shore of Fanshawe Lake.
Ever wanted a cottage without the commute? Here’s that chance, with a quaint little bungalow cottage sold through the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority’s cottage program. And this property hits the perfect balance between rustic and modern cottage life. Featuring a loft-style main bedroom, as well as a second bedroom on the main floor, this place has all the rich wood character that you’d expect in a cottage, packaged in a cozy and unique A-frame design. And like any good cottage, there’s plenty of cozy spaces to lounge, be it in the living room, sunroom, or guest bunkie — all winterized, too.
Sold through the UTRCA’s cottage program, this property offers seasonal access, and the property comes with a land lease agreement. Owners are permitted to live on the property full-time between March 1 and November 30; during the three months in between the owner is able to stay at the cottage only on weekends. At Fanshawe Lake, this property is one of over 50 that make up the conservation authority cottage community, which harkens back to the 1950s — a program created to help Ontarians enjoy their beautiful natural environment.
