This week's "Home of the Week," is all about location and that is why it's $5.2 million. It's not for me, much too modern and I don't think the photos do it justice. I do like the kitchen though, but otherwise I'll pass on the rest.
This week's "Condo of the Week," is also all about location and that is why it's $1.5 million, and for that you get the privilege of people looking at you from all the surrounding buildings. Talk about living on top of one another. It doesn't mention the monthly condo fee, but I am betting that is also quite high. Even when inside it is nothing exciting, so again I'll pass.
This week's "Cottage of the Week," is as usual mansion-like rather than cottage-like and has the price tag to match at $4.9 million. It's all very nice and I do like the black sheep on the front lawn, but it's not a cottage. I am also "confused" about the decor. I realize they want it to be cottage-like with some rustic touches, but overall it's very modern and I don't think it works.
Now back down to reality and Gill's "Cottage of the Week." is under $300,000 and you get an island as well as the property on it. It is only water access, but at least you can say "I OWN AN ISLAND." It's on Sturgeon Lake, near Bobcaygeon, so not miles and miles from civilization, and actually the property is quite nice. The boat access would put me off a bit, as it does not mention mainland parking etc. However if you want no neighbours and peace and quiet this would be perfect!
There are more "realistic" cottages here as well.
