CHIC WATERFRONT LIFESTYLE
This unique architect designed home has been carefully planned with an abundance of windows to bring in light and to capture views of the mighty Ottawa River from different vantage points. A thoughtful use of natural materials of stone and wood creates a naturally elegant feel. Chamfered exterior columns & a rooftop heron weathervane are nods to the waterfront location. Interior spaces are grounded by maple hardwood flooring including 2 inch thick stair treads. Hand selected solid pine doors, maple & pine millwork continue the theme.
The main living space is wide open, unhindered by posts, highlighting the soaring ceilings with multiple vaulted areas. An efficient wood burning fireplace keeps the space warm and cozy. The Kitchen area is as beautiful as it is functional, with a large working island and seating area. An expansive screened porch running from the front to the back of the house extends your living space spring, summer and fall.
The principal bedroom is situated on the upper level of the home away from the secondary bedrooms, ensuring privacy. Reclaimed local barn beams create charm and character drawing your eye to the vaulted ceiling. Enjoy a night cap on the private deck while you watch the stars. Recently renovated 4 piece Ensuite is timeless. An office space just outside this bedroom provides an ample space to work from home. Powder room and laundry are also on this level.
The walkout lower level houses two spacious bedrooms with views to the waterside and grounds. A 3 piece main bath with custom shower has a seaside feel with whitewashed beadboard wainscotting. Plenty of storage in the utility areas on this level.
The setting of this property is equally unique. Sloping lot is high and dry with a unique flat rock shoreline featuring a huge Boulder dropped in place by glaciers. Terraced levels along the property offer tiered perennial beds, large decked areas, & varied elevations to enjoy the views from this very private property with mature trees.
Crown Point offers a year round lifestyle an easy commute to Kanata North and Ottawa. Enjoy peaceful walks, boating, swimming, paddling, snowmobiling, cross country skiing and much more.
