The big sell: According to agent Tanya Rankin, lakeshore properties such as this secure some of the highest prices in this area. It is easy to see why, as the home is just feet away from the water, and the lure of water-skiing and beach activities. Set on a gently sloping lot, the rancher has a fully finished basement. The main reception rooms – including the master bedroom – are positioned so that the views pour in, and an oversized deck provides a venue for entertaining and summer gatherings. The sellers lived in the property for the past 30 years and there is evident pride of ownership.
