Dunrobin$15,000,00014 BD16 BALOT SIZE - 60 acres

The approach to the grand stone-walled entrance to Stone-Ayr - flanked by stone pillars labelled with the house title and address - builds a sense of anticipation. This impressive, 60-acre waterfront resort property only improves as you drive down the street-grade asphalt driveway that leads through the trees towards the water.

Reminiscent of an old-world European estate property, this superb home is on a scale unlike any to have to the market in Ottawa. The property boats 1,000 feet (+/-) of frontage along The Ottawa River, bordered by a seawall. The property has been developed for lifestyle living and enjoys equestrian facilities, a lighted tennis court, a floating boat dock, two swimming pools - one indoor and one outdoor - as well as superlative views, both from the grounds and the house.

In addition to the main house are a 3-bedroom guest house, guest cottage with loft, a beach house (currently unused), a pool cabana, gazebo, pool changing facility, barn and two workshops. Stone-Ayr is the epitome of refined elegance, with sophisticated, spacious rooms taking in jaw-dropping water views. A circular driveway leads to the front of the main house. At the centre of this driveway is a picturesque raised stone seating area. The imposing double door entrance features stained glass sidelights and opens into a beautiful slate-tiled foyer. This first step into Stone-Ayr is simply breathtaking: a tiered staircase with unique custom oak spindles and railings leads upwards; a feature stone wall on the second floor borders a wood-burning fireplace; the sense of space and timelessness in this room is unparalleled. The main floor of Stone-Ayr features spectacular, expansive rooms richly detailed with Douglas fir-paneled ceilings, exposed stone elements and large Palladian windows with jewel-like cremone bolts and mahogany trim. The hardwood floors throughout are of custom made 5 1/4-inch wide plank oak with walnut plugs.

The living room features a soaring ceiling, grand reception space with water views and a beautiful fireplace with stone surround. A picturesque wrought iron grated detail looks into the elegant dining room. Two staircases to the upper level - home to the dining room and kitchen - provide a wonderful separation between the entertaining and family spaces in the home. Each of these areas has its own elegant powder room and there an elegant main floor study. A wonderful playroom, steps away from the kitchen, makes daily family living convenient. The laundry room is also located on the main floor, near the kitchen. A breezeway connects the main floor to the second entrance.

The upper level features a gorgeous dining room with birds-eye view into the living room, and impressive water views. The adjacent kitchen was designed by André Godin and manages to be both grand and intimate. The granite oversized kitchen island enjoys a sophisticated custom beveled edge, and the rich cabinetry throughout the kitchen is comprised of cherry wood. A picturesque breakfast room enjoys a fireplace and access to a fabulous balcony with glass flooring. The balcony looks over the water and has a beautiful wrought iron circular staircase that leads to a private terrace.

A half-level up is a beautiful second study, with gorgeous views of the grounds; a wood-paneled, bookshelf-clad library; two private bedroom suites; the exercise room; a cedar closet; another office and a hobby room. The second floor of the home enjoys the private sanctuary-like primary bedroom suite, with its spacious sitting room with fireplace, beautiful bedroom with balcony and large marble-clad ensuite bathroom with heated floor and two vanities. This suite is reminiscent of a 5-star European boutique hotel with stunning water views, expansive rooms and a large walk-in closet. There are three additional bedrooms on this floor, as well as a spacious family bathroom.

The walkout lower level of the home has a large family room with Palladian windows and a wood-burning fireplace; a billiards room with wet bar; a beautiful sitting room with a fireplace; and the indoor saltwater swimming pool with its dramatic cedar wall elements. This level of the home walks out to a picturesque terrace and also has its own separate entrance. Two staircases connect the lower level to the main floor.

The pole barn is equipped with a walk-in stall with hay feeder, tack room, insulated automatic float valve water system for horses and is supplied with electrical. The two workshops are propane-heated. The beach house has not been used for years and is in need of repair.

This superb property in completely unparalleled in its scope, views, manicured acreage and proximity to the shops and restaurants of Kanata. It is simply one of a kind: a rare masterpiece offering a superb lifestyle.
