Private Lake for Sale

Kirkfield Lake: Private Lake for Sale in the Kawarthas 
By Kim Kerr-Dearsley

Located in the Kawartha Lakes cottage region of Ontario, Kirkfiled Lake – named after the nearby community of Kirkfield – is a very rare real estate investment opportunity for those seeking to own land in Canada.

How so? Well, not only will the lucky purchaser of this large parcel of land get a great deal of privacy, they’ll also gain private access to their very own lake.

And what a lake! Almost completely circular, this spectacular spring fed body of water covers an impressive 55-acres and is especially notable for its colour. Viewed from above, you’d almost be forgiven for thinking you were in the Caribbean as its waters are a sapphire blue in the deeper areas, and nearer the shoreline – especially in the lake’s lovely beach areas – it changes to a rich turquoise hue.


Build Your Dream Cottage

All told, this impressive property comprises an area of 230-acres, and an impressive 5,000 ft of waterfront. And the exposure? Take your pick! The lucky owner of this prime Kawarthas real estate for sale will have the opportunity to not only choose where they want to build their dream luxury home or cottage, but also whether it faces the sun as it sets over the water… or the sunrise.

Located just five-minutes’ drive from the village of Kirkfiled, this prime cottage country real estate is also just 30 minutes’ away from Casino Rama, one of the top entertainment venues in Central Ontario. Orillia, too, is an easy 35-minute drive away, as is the popular tourist destination of Muskoka.

Not that you’ll ever want to leave the grounds of your private estate! Thanks to its beautiful setting amidst a large tract of environmentally important woodlands, you’ll no doubt want to invest time in creating your own trail network… one which could also be used for cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and even snowmobiling in winter, not to mention getting in some skating on the lake.

So Much Outdoor Fun

And in warmer weather, it’s all about the fun to be had on this very private – and very large – waterfront. Activities such as swimming, snorkeling, diving, sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, kayaking, and paddle boarding all immediately spring to mind as fun things to do.
