Welcome to 123 Murdoch River Road in Alban, Ontario. Located along a quiet piece of the Murdoch River, this cozy year round waterfront home is a true find. Enjoyed and cared for by the same loving couple for the past 17 years, the home has retained its cottage feel while offering all modern amenities. The home is found just a short 45 minute drive south of Sudbury and 2.5 hours north of Barrie with the waterway giving easy access to the French River.
Located on a private road shared by only a dozen home owners and summer residents, the house sits on a .54 acre lot that gently slopes down to 103' of water frontage and also features several outbuildings. The home features a wooden exterior with a steel roof that was installed just 7 years ago. The interior is all wood staying with the cottage style and its open concept design makes the space much larger than it may appear on the outside. The home is centred by the great room consisting of the large living room with vaulted ceiling and WETT Certified wood burning stove, the dining area and the kitchen with moveable island and included appliances. Just off the kitchen is the all season sunroom that will no doubt become your favourite place to sit and relax. On the backside of the home, you will find the 2 well-sized bedrooms with a full 4 piece bathroom located between them. Completing the home is a small addition that was added on the backside of the sunroom that holds the laundry facilities and a short hallway leading to a second 3 piece bath.
In addition to the steel roof, recent upgrades and improvements to the home include all new windows in 2016 and a new forced air propane furnace that was installed in 2015. Road maintenance is completed by the Murdoch River Camper's Association at a cost of $180 per year.
On the front of the home, facing the lake is both a fully enclosed screened porch and a brand new deck (2018). The front yard features a multitude of mature trees providing extra privacy and summer shade. There is also a beautiful perennial flower garden. Outbuildings in the front yard include a small sleep bunkie and a storage shed near the water referred to as the boathouse. At the waterfront, you will find the brand new (2018) included dock that you can cast a fishing line from and also a beach area that is the perfect swimming spot for all ages.
Outbuildings on the backside of the home include a fully winterized sleep cabin with kitchenette and 3 piece bath plus a detached single car garage. The gravel driveway easily parks 8 or more vehicles for all the friends & family who are going to want to visit.
