A more grand entrance would be hard to achieve. Home welcomes with a semi-circular driveway and leads to a sheltered formal entrance of arched stone. The three car garage is ingeniously tucked away at the side of the building, designed to maximize a stunning visual facade: double doors, custom Queen-Anne windows and a pendant coachlight establish exquisite taste.

Inside, the home's exceptional scale and character becomes a divine reality; soaring ceilings welcome upon entry, natural light plays a starring role, and rich brazilian hardwood underfoot merges seamlessly with wrought iron detail throughout. With such opulent finishes as a backdrop, functionality also holds tenure - a winning combination that serves families well. As evidence; travertine ceramic lays the foundation for a spacious entryway, double closet stands ready - whether welcoming a large dinner party or after-practice soccer team, everyone has space to get acquainted. All eyes are immediately drawn to the dramatic living room - it's hard to miss: columns frame a barrel vault ceiling highlighting perfect symmetry over a stunning stone fireplace, floor to ceiling windows proffer light - formal, but oh so inviting and livable. Close to the main entrance is a formal study - ideally secluded from the first floor's main hub, know that productivity can be achieved without disturbing the household.

Off the main hall lies a formal dining room, where clerestory windows proffer light without compromising privacy. Continue through the main hall for a guest-centric layout; a well-appointed bar with granite countertop is poised for an evening of glamorous entertainment while a sleek powder room serves the first floor. Beyond, an expansive family and open kitchen showcase home's incredible ability to answer all demands: entertain a cocktail party crowd of one hundred, or hang out with family - both events happen effortlessly under one roof. Curl up by the regal fireplace that grounds the space, or enjoy some rec time - a billiards room and separate sunroom/den lie adjacent. With so much smart living space, the opportunity to make family memories is endless.

The kitchen boasts only the best - Viking appliances, DesLaurier custom cabinets, gleaming granite countertops, an island with extra storage and a walk-in wine cellar - it all comes together for a delicious serving of elegance and function. An eat-in kitchen area is surrounded by spectacular views of Rideau Forest and provides backyard access via two french doors; mealtime is always accompanied by the best nature has to offer.

A back hallway manages life's tasks; walk-in pantry, garage and basement access, and a walk-in closet with built in shelving collude to optimize everyday organization. Further on, find laundry accompanied by ample cupboard and counter space adjacent a sunny nanny or guest suite - 3 piece ensuite included, of course.

Upstairs, the absence of a main bathroom seems peculiar until one realizes that each spacious and sunny bedroom is paired with its own three piece ensuite - early morning bathroom lineups are banished in one luxurious swoop.

Occupying an entire half of the second floor, the master suite exemplifies comfort and class - a mini fridge and snack bar are just the beginning. The room's massive floor plan allows space for an adjacent sitting room, while the ensuite presents a host of goodies: a sound-proof gym, walk-in shower, soaker tub, separate his and hers vanities, and two walk-in closets make every morning an indulgence.

Below, beyond the basement's spanning floor plan are spaces designed with children in mind: find a bright craft room and fully equipped theatre room - radiant heat flooring throughout makes this spot a welcoming play space. A second nanny or guest suite with adjoining 4 piece ensuite lies at the end of a hallway - flexible and lavish, the options abound.

Although home provides for every imaginable need, it's hard to ignore what surrounds; over two acres of bountiful nature, and a landscaped stone patio encircles home for the best in evening barbeques. Escape for the day to picturesque Manotick or take a drive into the city - your refuge estate is never far from the action. Marvel at how peaceful family life can be - see it today!
