Manotick Long Island Waterfront
This fantastic waterfront property is situated on a rare, treed 38,718-square-foot lot and feels like being in Maine! Set far back from the road down a private drive, the home has been grandfathered into an extraordinary position on the water’s edge. As a result, it enjoys breathtaking views from a superb wraparound porch and the principal rooms!
The home has been updated amazingly renovated and is perfect for yearround or seasonal living. It is best known as the onetime residence of Harvey Sadd, an artist whom the Canadian Government hired to paint Rideau Canal and locks scenes.
