This spectacular Waterfront property on Whippoorwill Rd, Northern Bruce Peninsula is an easy 2.5hr drive from the GTA, KW, or golden horseshoe areas. The breathtaking view from the new architectural floor to ceiling windows looks out to Whippoorwill Bay and the limestone climbing cliffs with their famous rock formation known as the Lions Head. Often called the Caribbean of the North, the Georgian Bay is known for its' crystal-clear turquoise waters. Maybe you want to try your hand at repelling the shear 400-foot cliffs, or take a kayak out for a serene paddle? If you enjoy hiking, your front door is only a 2-minute walk to one of the most beautiful sections of the Bruce Trail. This property has been an important part of local history. The original settlers of 86 Whippoorwill built a simple cabin in the late 1800s, which still stands and serves as the Bunkie. The main home was built in several stages, beginning as a log home built in the early 1900s. The master bedroom still has the original fireplace. Around 1967, a prominent construction magnate acquired the property and built the great room, loft, and flagstone patio. The great room with its 14 cathedral ceiling and Western Red Cedar beams, boasts what is said to be the largest stone fireplace on the Peninsula. Surrounded by other prestigious homes and cottages, it is no wonder that the locals describe Whippoorwill Rd as Millionaires Row. This tree-lined dead-end road is by far the most desirable road in the region. Greystone Cottage is currently operated as a premium Bruce Peninsula cottage rental. Main floor 2 bdrms, 1bth, upper loft with added sleeping space, detached 1bd, 1bth bunky. Current income derived from rentals is approximately $60K/yr when rented 30% of available dates. Offered turn key with or without rentals, this tastefully decorated home is offered with all furnishings included even the Jukebox! (id:20994)
