Circa 1834, this property consists of a main residence, a two-storey carriage house, relaxing heated inground pool, dry boathouse and a serviced waterfront gazebo.  Lush foliage and gardens surround the property to offer a tranquil setting that extends to the Rideau River beyond.   Set on approximately 11 acres of rolling land with an expansive water frontage, a unique opportunity is presented.

The warm atmosphere extends from the outside in where you will find classic architectural details, numerous original wood mouldings, wide pine flooring, and deep windows which overlook the serene gardens.  The practical layout exudes a charming elegance that continues throughout the formal and intimate family areas.  Filled with character, the space preserves the natural beauty of the home while providing a comfort level to suit. Highlights include a sizable kitchen with an abundance of storage and prep space, a cozy wood burning fireplace & wood stove along with three bedrooms and three baths.
