This unique property is located on a gem of a lake – Temperance Lake, approximately 3 miles long and 1 mile wide with deep bays and 17 uninhabited islands.
On 3 sides its shoreline is heavily forested and vacant land. 80% of the buildings along the north shore of Temperance Lake Road are permanent year round homes. This lake is like something you would find 100 miles north – peaceful, private, very quiet, good for kayaking, fishing and tubing.
This property consists of 8 forested acres made up of 3 deeded lots, each comprising approximately 2.5 acres. The centre lot has 5 buildings and is bordered on each side by vacant lots that have already been approved for building. They can be retained for privacy, passed to family members or sold for profit. Each lot has approximately 300 ft. of shoreline and the same frontage on a year-round maintained paved road.
The centre lot also includes a private 1/4 acre island, accessed by a footbridge, and having a private, working, 14 foot stone lighthouse. The western shore of the island provides excellent swimming with a walk out into the lake on flat sandstone bedrock in water that deepens gradually from 6 inches to 8 feet.
An hour and 10 minutes from Ottawa, the property is about a 15 minute drive from highway 401( exits 675 at Mallorytown and 696 at Brockville). The area provides a full function hospital, churches of all faiths, multiple golf courses, Arts Centres, movie theaters, the St. Lawrence River waterfront, the Aquatarium, hotels, fast and fine good eateries, and shopping venues ( Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Home Hardware, Loblaws Superstore, Canadian Tire, etc.).
The centre lot comprises 5 structures. The main cottage, a 3 season construction, is well-insulated and easily heated with electric heaters and cooled with wall-installed air conditioners. This building includes 2 bedrooms and 2 ensuites (a 3 and a 4 piece). The master bedroom and ensuite are new construction. While completely functional, renovations of the second bedroom and ensuite are as yet incomplete. There is also a utility room with laundry facilities, a living area, an updated eat-in kitchen, a small screened porch, and a 26′ × 16′ winterized sunroom ( with living and dining areas) and 3 decks. There is also a 2 piece bathroom with outdoor entry only for kids and anyone staying overnight in the guest cottage. The two room guest cottage has its own screened porch and deck. There is also a tool shed/shop building with an outside breezeway leading to a separate storage shed and storage deck for large outdoor tools. This structure also has an attached unfurnished bunkie. Adjacent to the tool shed is a smaller structure which provides for garbage and recycling storage. Weekly garbage pick up can be arranged. Otherwise a municipal dump and transfer station serves the community. The final structure on this property is a 4 vehicle carport which provides ample winter storage for boats and utility trailers.
