While having any kind of backyard can make a home even more livable, is there any way it could be better? What if your backyard had a beach in it? This Ontario house for sale offers exactly that, along with lots of space, for a pretty reasonable price.
The 2,200-square-foot home located at 2168 Havilland Shores Dr. in Goulais River, Ontario (just a 40-minute drive from Sault Ste. Marie), is a private piece of paradise.
What immediately makes this place so attractive is the fact that just steps from the back door is a beautiful, sandy beach, surrounded by lovely greenery overlooking Lake Superior.
It's the perfect spot to spend a summer day, but even when the weather starts to cool down and the leaves begin to change colour, your outdoor options won't be limited.
You can cozy up by the home's firepit, staying warm on a chilly autumn night and listening to the waves lap against the shore.
Aside from the main house, there are two detached two-car garages, one of which is insulated, wired, and heated. It would make an ideal hangout spot for catching a hockey game or having a poker night.
Stepping into the home itself, you'll immediately be struck by all of the natural light from the plentiful windows, as well as the towering cathedral ceilings in the living room, which is accented by a rustic wood fireplace.
The kitchen has everything a home cook needs: two sinks with faucets, a giant island, a generously-sized fridge, and a dishwasher.
The main floor also provides laundry and a sunroom with in-floor heating.
Upstairs, the master suite features a walk-in closet, as well as a private balcony.
This home may seem like it should cost millions of dollars, but it is actually on the market for the fairly reasonable price of $475,000.
If your dream is to always be close to the beach, no matter what time of year it is, then this is the home for you!
