This picture shows you the distance to the closest boathouse which is to the south.
This picture shows that the cottage to the north is a long distance away, allowing this cottage to 'borrow' more than 300 feet of privacy both at the boathouse level and at the cottage level.
The land to the north of the cottage is empty of structures on the waterfront or on the land, right back to the end of the bay. A cottage and boathouse can be built right at the end of the bay.
Some hard packed sandy spots are close to the shore where young children can enter the lake. Deeper water at the end of the dock.
You can catch some sunsets from the seating at the side of the boathouse
The orange tape on the rialings marks about 66 feet off the waterfront. The sides of the lot are all marked with orange tape.
Sandy bottom on one side of the boathouse.
The dining room is flanked by the kitchen and a huge pantry/laundry room to the rear and the living room to the front.
This picture shows the boathouses along the shore to the south.
When the snow flies you will be happy to have the propane fireplace in the living room and the second propane fireplace below in the recreation room.

This 3000 sf 5 bedroom 3 bathroom cottage, or full time home, is located on a quiet bay on Lake Joseph just north of Foots Bay. There is easy access from Toronto via Highway 400. The property has 105 feet frontage, with a single slip boathouse, however the large size of the neighbouring cottage property to the north provides more than 300 ft of borrowed privacy on that side, both at the waterfront, and at the cottage level. The cottage was last added to in 1987 and requires a bit of finishing and some refreshing. The main rooms are spacious enough to support a large family with lots of guests. The septic is rated for 4 bedrooms. There is also a main floor office and a storage/baby's room/second office on the upper level. Dont miss seeing this excellent opportunity to secure a permanent home or winterized cottage on spectacular Lake Joseph. (id:27)
