This outstanding property is offered for sale at $1,690,000.
A Unique Opportunity
The opportunity to possess property on beautiful Lake Edith is rare. In fact, there are only 50 privately held lots. In 1957 the government shut down the building of any new cabins in the park. In the last 10 years there have been only five sales on Lake Edith. The steady increase of sale prices has reflected the increasing desirability of the cabins.
A Remarkable History
The cottage on this 25,440 sq.ft. property was built in 1923 and was purchased by the Martin family in 1953. An addition was added to the cabin in 1960 expanding the total area to 1170 sq.ft. and providing seasonal accommodations in the form of 3 bedrooms, an open living area, dining area and kitchen and 3-piece bath. Heating continues to be by propane space heater and rustic fireplace.
An Impeccable Setting
Nestled at the north end of Lake Edith, the property offers spectacular views of Mount Edith Cavell. The jewel, framed by the lake and trees provides a view from the living room window with no other cabins in sight.
Ownership in Perpetuity
As outright private property ownership in a National Park is not allowed, the cabin and land are held under lease with the Federal Government. The lease was renewed in 2007 and is valid for 42 years, renewable in perpetuity, and allows for 7 month occupancy from April 1st to October 31st of each year.
