This is one of Ottawa's most impressive waterfront properties. A park-like setting with beautiful landscaping, water access and unparalleled 180 degree water views make this offering truly unique. It is the perfect setting for a couple or family looking for a lifestyle change. A boat launching ramp, dock with protective mole, swimming pool and hot tub overlooking the river, and a three-car garage are but a few of the enticements for an active family.
The grand foyer sets the tone for the house – space, light and unifying warm tones. The main floor is spacious in the extreme. The living room has a fireplace with classic white plaster and black marble surround bracketed by built-in display shelves, and lovely moldings and baseboards. The dining room, up two steps from the living room, is of a size suited to formal entertaining. The spectacular white kitchen is designed for both function and form. It is bright and inviting – ready to support large-scale entertaining when required. It has exquisite white cabinetry including the centre island, contrasting Corian counter tops, dark hardwood floors, and a desk area for organization. The appliances blend in superbly with the rest of the kitchen, creating a feeling of elegance. The kitchen and family room open to a solarium that currently serves as a casual breakfast room. It has floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides, eight skylights, and sliding doors that access the beautiful lawns, gardens, pool and hot tub, and watercraft area.
The main floor also includes a fabulous master bedroom suite with a superb walk-in closet with extensive built-in cabinetry. The ensuite bathroom is luxurious and enjoys his and her sinks, a separate shower and a wonderful soaking tub. The main floor is also home to a conveniently located private study with gorgeous water views. The study shares a two-sided stone fireplace with brass inserts with the adjacent family room. The family room is large, inviting and has lovely river views. A bright, well-organized laundry also has water views, and two beautifully decorated powder rooms complete the main level.
A beautiful circular staircase leads to the second floor from the foyer, and there is a second staircase for convenience. This level has four additional bedrooms and two family bathrooms. One of these bedrooms has a sitting room and a five-piece ensuite bathroom that is perfect for guests or as a nanny suite. The basement is for storage only.
