Surrounded by picturesque countryside and set on the riverfront, home was specifically d esigned and oriented to offer stunning river views and access from every vantage. First impressions are inviting - triangular transoms fit nicely in double gables, a full brick s urround promises a solid foundation, and coach lamps and wide sidelights frame the front door. The metal roof has a lifetime guarantee - every building decision was made with timeless quality in mind. Don't let home's facade fool you - its footprint lies well beyond what the eye can see - a rare 400 feet of riverfront are laid out for your leisure. A tour inside promises great things to come.

Entrances are grand; the centre hall layout exposes an open to above entry that features architectural details like cathedral ceilings, balconies overlooking social spaces and abundant natural light. Function plays a part too. Marble at your feet, garage access, solid wood doors on a double closet plus a powder room make first steps inside comfortable and accommodating.

Floor to ceiling windows all around let occupants soak in the ever changing tableau of Canada's landscape. Hang out, host family game night - there's no better place to spend time together. Nearby, casual family meals in the dinette are made extra special with a built-in credenza - java lovers will love this opportune spot for a coffee bar.

Access the backyard to extend the space during summer months. A dock awaits water toys for sports and lazy days on the river. Barbecue on the banks of the river, let kids and pets enjoy the fullest of nature's benefits that surround. Get ready to spent all of your summers outside - you won't believe you're less than an hour away from the city centre. Nearby, a functional butler's pantry leads to a large laundry room full of storage and thoughtful tools to handle domestic tasks. Beyond, find a separate wing for optimal main-floor living. A sprawling rec room features jaw-dropping potential. Host cocktail parties - the corner solid wood bar handles this task effortlessly - give young family members and friends their own space to socialize, practice hobbies, the options are endless. A main floor bedroom and ensuite leave in-laws or special guests well taken care of. Separate garage access and an ensuite leave occupants with independence and autonomy.

Upstairs, sleeping quarters are thoughtfully divided for the highest levels of privacy and tranquility. Bedrooms offer large proportions, bright windows and sweet views. The first has its own ensuite and walk-in closet. Double doors lead to the master; a generous refuge where endless views of the river and beyond greet you every morning and ensure restful nights. The private balcony guarantees quality "me-time". Equally spacious is the ensuite and walk-in closet. Handling daily ablutions with spa-like features, the ensuite plays host to a jacuzzi soaker tub perfectly placed under a skylight, a walk-in shower, bidet and double vanity. Every morning and evening routine is indulgent.

Down the hall and in a separate wing, a main bath serves two welcoming and bright bedrooms.
