A Stately Abode On The Rideau

February 15, 2019 2 min read

Tucked away in the charming town of Manotick, ON this 2 storey residence sits beside the picturesque Rideau River and alluring historical buildings. Designed for year round living this impressively finished home has had no details left unaccounted for, from the warmth and coziness of living spaces and see-through fireplaces to the open concept and integrated outdoor space for the summer months.

The property sloping towards the river lends itself to optimal interaction with the outdoors. The kitchen, living/dining room and master bedroom situated on the upper level are placed in a way to maximize the views of the river and allow easy access to the outdoor space.Expansive windows and 12’ high ceilings give the interior a lavish feel and allow large swaths of natural light to flow in. Wide plank hardwood floors throughout help emphasize the tile/slabbed areas in key places such as the foyer featuring a see-through fireplace donning matching slab material. The finishes are impeccable from the custom made kitchen, marble staircase and stand-alone bar with waterfall style countertops.

The attached Lanai space with moveable glass doors system allows the natural feel of the outdoors into the home while giving a living free feeling. The outdoor ambience is complete, encompassing a hot tub, infinity edge pool and open fire pit area while never being more than a few steps from the indoors or out of the scenic sites of the river. The luxurious feel continues throughout the home from the walkout basement where a large rec room with a bar, billiards table and TV room are again open to the views of the river.
