The historic Severn River Inn, Muskoka, Canada, currently in use as multigenerational waterfront home, is ideally positioned close to Highway 11 for easy commuting and set back from neighbouring properties within a beautifully maintained English style riverside garden of perennials, mature trees and herbaceous borders. Built in 1907, at Lot 1 on the site of the original homestead of James Jackson, first Reeve of Muskoka, the Inn has been comprehensively reconfigured by the current owners in recent years. Architecturally, the building is a significant example of the early Muskoka Store and Inn construction, its red brick exterior featuring a store front façade of two six-panned windows common to the style of its day. The current owners remained true to its architectural significance with particular reverence for its rounded windows, original woodwork, high ceilings and fireplaces that create a sense of grandeur and warmth throughout. The Inn now offers over 4,800 sq ft of internal living space, beautifully proportioned across two floors in a flexible floor plan that includes two self contained apartment style suites with kitchenette, plus spacious common rooms, main kitchen with walk-in pantry and laundry, an office, 7 bedrooms and 6 ensuite bathrooms. Current zoning reflects the commercial/residential uses that have been embedded since the mid 1800s and includes B&B, personal services, retail, business office and many more options. Be sure to ask your realtor for more detail. Situated on the storied banks of the Severn River this unique location affords one the opportunity to cruise to Sparrow lake and onward to Lake Huron or down the opposite way through the Trent Canal to Lake Ontario. Minutes to Gravenhurst or Orillia for Opera Houses, shopping, restaurants, fitness facilities, hospital and other amenities. Contact now to arrange for your personal tour! (id:27)
