Enjoy the tranquility of waterfront living in this two-storey family home that is situated on a 2.16 acre lot just south of Manotick Village. Well set back from the road, a private driveway leads to this circa 1978 residence that offers traditional charm and a picturesque backdrop that overlooks the Rideau River. The setting benefits from western exposure which allows for warm afternoon sun and beautiful waterfront sunsets.
An extended front porch welcomes you to the foyer that is accented by a solid paneled wood door and antique stained glass sidelights. A timeless centre hall layout enfolds into the spacious living areas that are ideal for family gatherings and incorporate classic architectural details along with views of the grounds and waterfront.
The eat-in kitchen is spacious in size and features ample workspace and a striking brick veneer accent wall housing a wall oven, stove top, barbeque grill and microwave area. As you continue to the back of the home, the open concept floor plan unites the formal dining room to the sunken living room allowing you to entertain with ease. The living room benefits from a natural wood burning fireplace with floor to ceiling granite stone and raised hearth, and the dining room is accessible to the wrap around deck, backyard and waterfront. Opportunities are endless to make modifications to the existing footprint or remodel to reflect your own unique personal style.
The second level of the home is ideal for large families or multi-generational living. Six bedrooms are featured along with a five piece family bathroom. The generously sized master bedroom incorporates a wood burning fireplace, dressing area/cedar lined walk-in closet and a five piece ensuite bath. There is also a balcony that is accessible from both the master bedroom and secondary bedroom that embraces the outdoor vistas.
Downstairs, the lower level has been partially finished to extend the living space. This multi-purpose area displays a recreation/media room and includes vintage wood paneling and an abundance of built-ins for electronic and family storage.
As you step outside, a serene waterfront setting is showcased that backs onto the Rideau River. This charming outdoor space is surrounded by mature trees and combines a patio walkway and a garden pond amidst the flourishing gardens. There is also a sunroom that connects to both the deck and to the garage.
Situated in a wonderful location, this waterfront property offers great potential and a considerable amount of living space for you and your family to experience.
