Welcome to Ralston's Retreat! Occupied since 1998 by the original owners, this cottage offers unlimited possibilities. Located in the Lakeside Neighborhood on a charming and very private street, you'll find it convenient to the North Gate and all Big Canoe amenities. Since their ownership the owners have enclosed the screened porch and converted it into a formal dining room, added a sunroom/studio to the lower level and constructed a spacious two car garage. They also added a large deck with a walkway from the front porch to an unfinished bonus room above the garage. The septic tank has been completely cleaned. The HVAC System serviced, and both it and the roof are only 11 years old. In addition, the exterior of the home has recently been completely painted. Please note that the square footage reflected in the Tax Record doesn't include the Dining Room, Sunroom nor the Garage. To make this property shine only cosmetic changes are needed. If you have the vision, this home will make an ideal full or part time residence. Two additional positive factors to consider are this home has a stepless entry and is located in Dawson County which provides a tremendous tax advantage for senior citizens. This property offers a tremendous value for someone willing to make the cosmetic changes they envision. Come for a look!
