Waterfront lots available on Bob’s Lake

A new development on Bob’s Lake, just 20 minutes from Perth, Ontario presents a great opportunity for anyone wanting their own bit of waterfront in the region. Nordlaw Cottages has been redeveloped on a site that was home to the former Nordlaw Lodge.

Sitting on 6.5 acres, this new cottage community includes 1,350 feet of waterfront and includes 18 lots of varying sizes in the design plan.

Residents would share common elements including main driveway, boat launch, beaches, docks, parking, etc.

At this point, the offering is also being packaged with a range of simple cottage designs. An 800-850 sq ft cottage would be approximately $250k.
