Waterfront, Sunsets, Sandy Beach
This beautiful family home is situated on Loch Isle Road in prestigious Crystal Bay at Crystal Beach. It is one of the only true beachfront properties in Ottawa being just steps from the Ottawa River and owning the beach to the waterline. The interior has been designed to take advantage of the breathtaking views, with large picture windows in all the main rooms and a generous water-facing balcony off the master bedroom. The owners have renovated the home extensively and have created many exterior seating and dining areas from which to enjoy the views and tranquil setting. There is a covered dining area on the main deck and two seating areas, one of which has a clear railing that provides shelter from the evening breeze without compromising the scenic vistas. Composite decking assures minimum maintenance, as does the interlocking brick pathway that leads to a beach-side patio set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens. The property is beautifully and meticulously landscaped.
Renovated with the finest craftsmanship and materials, this residence is sure to impress. The vestibule, with its inlaid marble floor, opens to a long foyer exposing river views beyond. Off the foyer are a sunken living room, a family room and a library. The living room and family room share a sloped 16-plus-foot ceiling with large skylights that flood the space with light. The dining room and library combine their large picture windows to give a panoramic view extending across the back of the house.
The spectacular John Brathwaite custom maple kitchen is a chef’s paradise. It meets every requirement for gourmet cooking and large-scale entertaining as well as family living. Kitchen-Aid appliances with a meteorite stainless steel finish that does not show finger prints; a large “Red Dragon” granite island with under-mount sink, wine rack and storage; an eating area with an etched glass bay window; and a built-in computer area off the main part of the kitchen are among its numerous features. A beautiful marble powder room and a laundry with a tumbled marble floor and granite counter-tops complete the main floor of the house.
The spacious master bedroom and three other generously sized bedrooms occupy the second floor. The master bedroom is accessed through double doors and has hardwood floors, a gas fireplace with a wood mantle and marble surround and a large walk-in closet. A beautiful balcony overlooks the water - the perfect place to relax in the evening and watch the sunset. The six-piece ensuite bathroom has a black and white Thassos granite floor with radiant heating, custom ‘early” Beckerman cabinetry with “his and her” granite counter-top vanities, a jet tub and separate shower with custom oil-rubbed bronze faucets. The remaining bedrooms have hardwood floors, crown mouldings and large closets (one of which houses a secret cubby!). The upstairs bathroom also acts as an ensuite to one of these bedrooms and has custom Italian cabinetry and a tumbled marble floor. This is truly a unique beachfront Dream Property!
