Rockcliffe Park $6,500,000 4 BD 4 BA LOT SIZE - 42,401.28 sq. ft.

Situated in the historic Village of Rockcliffe Park, this extraordinary home stands out as one of the rarest properties ever to come to market. Nestled on a 42,000+ square foot lot, this residence boasts Kennebunkport and Nantucket-style architecture, lending it a timeless and picturesque charm. Uniquely endowed with riparian rights on Mackay Lake, this residence offers unparalleled tranquility with its private dock, serene lake views, and lush natural surroundings. With abundant southern, eastern, and western exposure, the home is bathed in light captured by its elegant windows, transoms, and French doors. The front veranda and three balconies — accessible from the family room, primary bedroom, and primary ensuite bathroom — create romantic allure and provides stunning vistas of the lake and landscape.

Inside, the house exudes elegance and sophistication. High ceilings and maple floors create a sense of spaciousness and warmth, while the all-white interiors emphasize brightness. The great room and the primary bedroom suite both feature fireplaces, adding a warm feel to the living spaces. Every room offers breathtaking views of the lake, ensuring that the natural beauty of the surroundings is always within sight. The beautifully landscaped garden and flagstoned backyard further complement the home’s aesthetic, and the three car garage is a rare and valuable addition in this historic neighbourhood.

This 4-bedroom home enjoys two significant bedrooms suites and an additional family room on the second floor. The layout offers incredible lake views throughout. Blending historical significance with modern updates, this waterfront property is a true gem in Rockcliffe Park. Its elevated position on a gentle incline gives it a commanding presence and provides sweeping vistas of the lake and meticulously maintained grounds. A magnificent circular driveway stretches across the property, while still offering ample parking in front of the rear triple garage. The grounds and gardens are magnificent, and the house is rare because it commands a private corner lot in the Old Village of Rockcliffe Park, within walking distance Elmwood School and Ashbury College. The property is also only minutes from Parliament Hill, the Governor General's Residence and fine restaurants. This unique home, with its combination of classic architectural style, luxurious amenities, and exceptional location, offers a rare opportunity to own a piece of Rockcliffe Park’s storied heritage.
