5 bedroom / 2 bathroom nostalgic & charming cottage very close to the beach in Oakwood Park - where you don't see much under a million these days!
This is a photo of the beach in Oakwood taken on June 18, 2019, barely a 2 minute walk from your front door!  It would appear that only Oakwood's beach is safe from today's high water levels.
Notice the superb privacy at the rear patio.  This lot is surrounded by privacy!
Even the large front yard is sheltered into a bit a cedar cove - great for the kids! So much privacy!
A great price tag in Oakwood given how well this cottage can handle large and extended families!
Just look at the size of that front yard - massive!
Truly old school. So cool.
A favourite room has always been this pine sunroom, ideal as an evening dining room to catch a dazzling sunset settling through the trees. Great sunsets here just 2 rows back from the lakefront!
Nice roomy living room with hardwood floors, pine ceilings, and a field stone wood fireplace.
Quality well-kept stonework on the fireplace.
Notice the modern windows (updated in recent time) beside the fireplace.
Roomy dining room to accompany the galley kitchen.
Notice the condition of some of the original kitchen fixtures - a true original!
Also notice the vast lenght of this galley kitchen, fully equipped with a fridge, stove, dishwasher, and a dryer for all those wet towels (all appliances included)!
Main floor master bedroom - nice and big!
Yet a 2nd main floor bedroom - I told you, this old beauty uses its space very well!
Let's head upstairs to check out 3 additional bedrooms, two of which are quite large!
Bedroom #3 - second level
Bedroom #4 - second level.
And finally, a 5th bedroom, also on the second level!  Notice the gorgeous pine ceilings found in almost every room in the house!
Recently updated full bathroom with low level tub surrounding the shower.
With the hose run shower head, families with small children and toddlers will still get the benefits of a tub, but with the lower rise, the grandparents can use it too!
A second bathroom, a half-bath, closer to all of the bedrooms.  This second bathroom is crucial when the whole family is up!
Let's head back outdoors and check out this incredible property before we head down to the beach.  Here, you see the expansive and very private rear patio.
Here, with the front driveway, you can fit at least 3 cars, probably 4 (comfortably) if they aren't trucks.  That's excluding the parking space in the garage. But wait...there is MORE parking!
This is a shot from the privately owned space at the rear accessible by a laneway.  You can fit at least 4 more cars back here, a boat or two, etc. - very unique feature for Oakwood Park!
This rear parking area, in addition to being quite handy because of the parking, adds a lot of privacy at the back of the property.
Notice the nice landscaping features as you approach the property from the rear parking area.
The original field stone wall separating the back patio from the lower parking area is still in great shape!
There's a close up that shows the wonderful condition of this great feature.
The original 1 car garage with an open back - great for the beach toys or any type of recreational cart or small vehicle.
Keep in mind that smaller & inferior cottages are now selling in downtown Grand Bend well into the 400s, which makes this price seemingly quite fair in Oakwood Park!
Because, where are ever going to find a yard like this in downtown, esp. 1 row back from the lakefront?
But in Oakwood, you'll get a yard like this, and still have an easy walk downtown to all of downtown's fantastic amenities.
But you know I was saving the best for last!  Let's take that 2 minute stroll down to Oakwood's stellar beach.
And remember, only the private property owners near these paths in Oakwood Park have access down to the beach at the locations you are about to see.  These are not public beach paths!
Here is your beach just to the north...
Wait for it...
And boom!  Look at that beach, literally seconds from your front door if you jumped on a bike!
June 18, 2019 - water levels have peaked beyond their peak, and this is your beach!  Wow.
And here is another superb deeded beach path, just to the south and equally as close to your front door!
Wait for it...
And boom, just as good on the south side!!!
This ain't no myth!  Right from that phenominal beach just shown, this is what you'll get...
Unbelievable! Seriously, what are you waiting for?  There is hardly ever anything for sale in Oakwood.  Get up here and make your family's dreams come true before it's too late!
Oh yeah baby!
And form Oakwood, you're just a short walk down to the main pier for one of these!
You're also a short walk to a nice harbour sunset too!
And of course, Oakwood is a short bike or drive to one of Ontario's greatest provincial parks for some summer or winter recreation.
And yet one more great thing about being in Oakwood - you're on the better side of that crazy summer traffic. From a world class beach to a bustling downtown in mere minutes!

Remarks

Step back in time with this 5 bed/2 bath charmer in the exclusive & sought after Oakwood Park - Grand Bend's premier private lakefront community. Loaded with the nostalgic features you'd expect with one of the Park's original beach houses, this Oakwood treasure will surprise you with its excellent use of space. However, the remarkably large capacity of this lovely cottage isn't half as exciting as the location itself, nestled into a secluded lot just 1 row behind your choice of TWO deeded beach paths leading to a sprawling sandy beach barely a 2 minute's stroll from your front door! Look at those summer '19 beach photos - best private beach in town! Even with water levels at their peak, Oakwood still boasts a MASSIVE sandy beach. And for your beach guests, boats, jet skis, etc., you have loads of additional parking with rear access to the property via an exclusive right of way. Septic system pumped & serviced within the last year. Various updates, including NEW shingles! A must see! (id:27)
