Set back from the street, stone pillars announce the laneway and expansive lawn. Stone and stucco frames large, contemporary windows; the marriage of traditional and modern yields a welcoming result. A two storey portico harbours a transom-topped double door entry - the best is yet to come.

Within, a magnificent two storey entrance reveals an open to above staircase and vaulted ceilings in the open living room. Relish a floor plan that has been customized to optimize space and flow. Smart, simple design coupled with luxurious details are the baseline of outstanding quality that is the hallmark of this dwelling. Fixtures from Fine Art Lamps, metallic foil ceilings, engineered hardwood, and custom stone and tile work throughout is a tasteful evidence of this ethos.

To the left, a hard working trio - a front hall closet fitted with built-ins, powder room, and a study that acts as home work area or conference room. Here, sleek Roche-Bobois built-ins are stylish essentials. Adjacent, the open living and dining room are entertaining-ready and offer sightlines to home's quiet masterpiece; uninterrupted views of a rolling verdant yard with direct access to the Rideau River. With nature's stunning vista as a backdrop, evenings are filled with class and enjoyment.

Nearby is the heart of home, and this locale's unique design answers all family and entertainment needs with aplomb. It's hard to believe this space is as beautiful as it is hard-working. Take the sprawling quartz-topped island illuminated by Murano glass pendant lights; perfect for a casual dining spot, late-night conversation starter or meal prep station. Grey shaker cabinetry keeps kitchen essentials at bay, complementing stainless Miele, Dacor and Thermador appliances. An eat-in area allows for hosts and guests to be in constant contact - the party never loses momentum. An over-sink window and double patio doors overlook the spacious patio granting inspiring scenery. You've never experienced outdoor living like this before - a cottage-like sanctuary stretches before you. Go for a spin on the water then reap the benefits of a covered outdoor kitchen, accompanied by living and dining areas on a luxe terrace. Guests won't want to leave after experiencing delights from the Kalamazoo grill - never choose between gas, charcoal, or wood again. Or maybe it's the homemade pizza they're after from the ceramic pizza oven. Hosting is taken to a whole new level. Back inside, find an open living room - watch your favourite show, chat with the kids, and prep dinner at the same time. Smart maple built-ins handle storage, a Town & Country fireplace with oversized cement tile is chic and cozy. Family movie night? Epic.

Know that home is automated beyond the norm - Control 4 panels throughout allow control of security, lights, climate, and sound - connect it all to your phone for ultimate efficiency. Nearby, a mudroom hosts laundry, space saving cabinetry and huge closets to keep your clan's comings and goings organized and out of sight. Find also access to the four car garage - there's storage for water toys, of course.

Don't forget to look up on your way upstairs, the silver foil tray ceiling paired with a custom mother of pearl chandelier is exquisite. A large landing features a seating area overlooking the main floor, aesthetic continuity maintaining home's distinct flow.

Each bedroom resembles a suite given their ample footprints - generous enough to host a King size bed - walk-in closets, and personal ensuites. Sweeping picturesque views and luxe finishings like chrome fixtures and glass tile accents handle mornings. For entertaining, the third suite has a smart cheater door to the main hallway.

The master suite is like no other - a true sanctuary in every sense, home's private orientation allows the vast windows to be open at all times - relish the view. Pewter foil in a tray ceiling and swarovski crystals sparkle, while a stone dividing wall hosts a Town & Country Fireplace and intimate seating area - it's almost enough to tear you away from the beautiful terrace. Disconnecting never came so easy - and you don't even have to leave the house. Walk-in closet and ensuite work hand in hand for effortless mornings. The soaker tub beneath a bank of windows or walk-in rain shower presents an indulgent choice. A striking white gold mosaic tile wall and double vanity inject panache into the every day.

Built on the grade, a walk out basement offers patio door access to the Rideau, plenty of windows and a space that is ready for customization. Let your decor dreams soar.

Find a home that is unique in every sense - from it's incomparably peaceful locale, proximity to daily amenities, and inimitable combination of sophistication and functionality - this winning family refuge is an exceptional opportunity to live a beautiful lifestyle. Make an appointment today!
