A 2.9 Acre Private Country Retreat



Welcome to 6414 Line 2, Ramara, located within an hour and a half of the GTA. This is a great place to cottage, or retire to, as it is only 10 minutes outside Orillia, a city that’s got everything, a new Rec Centre (coming soon), hospital, summer weekend events and even a new Costco!



The property includes 342 ft of waterfront and is the only section on the lake that is not zoned Natural Area Protection or Agricultural. The charming stone century home is the only principal residence that’s been allowed to be built beside it. The rest of the lake is bordered by a few farms.



The 1,925 sf, 2-storey 3 bedroom, 1½ bath home was built in 1910. It offers you plenty of charm and character. It was built with 6,000 pieces of quarried limestone from Longford Mills, nearby.



The mature trees make for a lovely setting overlooking a 175-foot wide sandy beach perfect for volleyball, sunbathing or just relaxing. The river that flows from this lake to the next one is a lovely canoe, kayak or paddleboard route, very relaxing and enthralling. There’s even a popular waterfront restaurant located at the end of the river.

The fishing is phenomenal with lots of largemouth bass, pike, pickerel and crappie. The wildlife is prolific with moose, deer, mink, otter, turtles, loons and many varieties of ducks and birds.

Dragonflies perform a special dance for you in late May when they emerge out of their nymphs. This the perfect place for outdoors people, naturalists, hunters and/or people who enjoy fishing or living in a thriving natural habitat. It is truly one-of-a-kind!

Located in Ramara township, the property for sale is located just 10 minutes from Orillia, 10 minutes to Casino Rama, 45 minutes to Barrie and within 1.5 hours of Toronto.

Travel down the enchanted lane way bordered by Hawthorne trees and Elderberry shrubs and you will come across this charming century home. The unique look of this home is due to the 6000 pieces of limestone cladding the exterior of the home*. The home has 1,925 square feet of living space (approx. 600 sq ft is still available to be finished in the loft space), 3 bedrooms, 1 and a half bathrooms and main floor laundry. There are many original features like hardwood flooring, birch bannister/handrail, 7.5″ baseboards and solid hardwood doors.
* Apparently the same limestone used to build Martyr’s Shrine in Midland.

At the top of the stairs is another unique feature of homes from the 1900’s. What was once called a Parlour, this room has a peek-a-boo opening in the wall that overlooks the staircase and has no door. It could be used as an office space, library or sitting room.
