Timeless Waterfront Contemporary by Barry Hobin
This contemporary home designed by Barry Hobin in 2005 offers panoramic water views of the Ottawa River and countryside. The house is perched in the perfect location to capture the best light conditions throughout the day. The owners strove to achieve a home that embraces pure and distinct design throughout. The floors are polished concrete and the house consists of steel and glass. Warmth is created in this private home with spectacular views. The home is well set back from the road on acreage. The long and private driveway leads you to a circular drive at the front door.
The foyer opens to beautiful views of the Ottawa River, Gatineau Hills & beyond. The main living space includes a great room with a massive stone fireplace and gorgeous water views. The great room is adjacent to an open kitchen, so you can enjoy the open concept space the home has to offer. All cabinetry throughout the home is raised from the ground as if it were floating. The main floor also offers a wonderful family / media room that can be closed off from the open space. Also, in the separate master bedroom suite wing there is a study and a master suite that includes a walk-in closet and generous sized master en suite bathroom.
One of the focal points of the house is the contemporary stairway to the lower level. The lower walk out level has its own great room stone fireplace and spectacular outdoor views. There is also plenty of storage space and the area is perfect for families or those wanting to work out of their home. The main floor has a laundry room complete with water views plus a mudroom and access to one of the two triple garages.
There is a screened in porch and a small swimming pool to enjoy in the summer. Walk to the shoreline and enjoy a bonfire on the beach, or sit back and watch a breathtaking sunset. This property is beautiful, unique and contemporary. Anyone creative or wanting to enjoy spectacular vistas and sunsets will absolutely love it.
