Inside a $6M waterfront cottage that might convince you to move from T.O.

Ditching the city for full-time cottage living would be easy if you’re moving into the home at 1209 Delbrooke Rd. Located in the township of Lake of Bays, the luxurious custom-built abode has 142 feet of waterfront along Trading Bay. There are three bedrooms, six bathrooms and 4,800 square feet of living space.

Another perk to this property is the short-term rental potential. The owners can rent it out for a whopping $20,000 per week during peak cottage season. Right now, it’s on the market for a cool $5.995 million.

The cottage aims to impress as soon as you step through the front door, starting with the Muskoka room.
