Turnkey Manotick Estate
This custom-built dream property is situated in the heart of Rideau Forest; an exclusive development where privacy and upscale living are paramount. Only moments from the pretty Village of Manotick with its many shops and restaurants and twenty minutes from Downtown Ottawa, the location offers country living without forfeiting urban conveniences.
A long, circular driveway leads to the house which is set back from the road and surrounded by beautiful landscaping. It is impressive in scale and design with an elegant brick and stucco façade, a covered entry with double doors and Palladian windows. Mature trees surround the property, which backs onto a private forest offering a place to hike and cross country ski.
The house has a dramatic foyer with a 19-ft ceiling, two curved staircases leading to the second floor landing and a view of the striking stone fireplace in the family room. Elegant, rich details are found throughout the house which has a fabulous layout. The formal dining room and living room are at either side of the foyer and offer streetscape views. There are maple floors throughout which reflect light from the many windows that grace the home.
The professional kitchen is a chef’s dream. It is equipped with top of the line stainless steel appliances that compliment the custom cabinetry, granite countertops and granite flooring that is found in the kitchen and eating area. Each space has a pass-through to the family room which looks onto the patio, swimming pool and forest beyond. There is an island, breakfast bar and a separate pantry that serves the kitchen. The main floor laundry is well laid out with lots of cabinetry, a sink and Maytag appliances and pedestals.
The family room is incredibly spacious and bright with double height windows incorporated into the 19-ft ceiling. French doors open onto balconies over the family room from two bedroom suites and the landing.
Leading to the private master suite one passes a bedroom that is currently used as a playroom, and an office. The romantic master bedroom has arched entries and chandelier lighting that hangs from a raised ceiling. A double sided fireplace in the sitting area is shared with the ensuite bathroom and flanked by art niches. The ensuite is luxurious with two vanities and a make-up desk with granite counters and a raised soaking tub overlooking the garden. A separate shower and water closet complete the room. The walk-in closet is well-designed with custom shelving and a granite-topped island.
There are six additional bedrooms and a family bathroom on the second floor. Two of these bedrooms are suites with balconies opening onto the family room and gorgeous ensuite bathrooms. The remaining bedrooms are spacious and bright and all offer gorgeous views. The six-piece family bathroom is cleverly designed with a centre area containing a double vanity and make-up desk leading to two separate water closets.
The full basement is partly finished and contains a fantastic entertaining space with a bar. There is also a gym complete with equipment and a workshop. A huge unfinished basement offers many possibilities.
There are covered verandahs and a large patio in the back garden that overlook the swimming pool. The forest offers a fantastic backdrop and a private trail. This home is fantastic for family living and entertaining on a large scale.
