Living On Moulinette Island
Perhaps one the region’s best spots to enjoy life is on Moulinette Island. Situated just south of Long Sault on the Long Sault Parkway, this man-made island of roughly 75 homes is the only true waterfront availability west of Cornwall. Formerly known (and still known to locals) as Island 17, the island features executive homes, EACH with waterfront access lots. All of the lots face the water and are located on the outside of the 1 main road that encircles the island. The island’s centre is a wooded area and there is even a small park for children featuring swings and a play area.
The main road is made of gravel and gives island life a certain cottage vibe. The island features the only homes located in the St Lawrence Seaway stretching from the Moses Saunders Dam to Ault Island – a span of nearly 30 kilometers. It is a unique piece of land in the Province as it is entirely man-made and the only space to accommodate waterfront properties in the St. Lawrence Parks. A year-round living space which features access to a large beach in the summer, walking trails, boat docks and camping.
There are few islands in the St. Lawrence Seaway where homes can be built but by far, Moulinette Island is the one with the largest, most prestigious homes. Moulinete Island also features municipal sewers and water so that homeowners can live and play year-round in the parkway.
Bring able to taking in the morning sunrise and also appreciate the sunset is an incredible feature of the homes on the south side of the island. With long waterfront panoramas overlooking lake St. Lawrence, The Power Dam and the Long Sault Parkway – the island is truly a boating playground.
THE HOMES ON MOULINETTE ISLAND
Most of the homes on the island are either large, executive-style homes with a boat dock and large driveways with garages, or smaller cottage-style homes that are 40-50 years old. A large number of the smaller cottages are being renovated and repurposed to accommodate larger homes. This location is truly worth the drive out to see the properties.
Buying a home on Moulinette Island is an opportunity that doesn’t come up very often, and will fall in the range of $600,000 to $1.5 million.
