Both the house and property have the WOW factor. A rare find not another house/cottage in sight. Use your imagination and escape to the best of Canada in your dream home / retreat on a secluded water-front property. Excellent potential for many uses: country estate, hobby farm, seasonal getaway, retirement spot, or dream project such as a maple syrup operation, bed and breakfast, health, education, training or senior's facility. 63 acres of mixed forest with 80% hardwood (mostly maple). This is a beautiful piece of land on a secluded lake with a pond and creek running through it.

Only 45 min to Kanata, 1 hr to Ottawa, 3.5 hours to Toronto.

This 3,000 sq/ft stunning home and property comes complete with wild deer, loons, ducks, swans, geese, pickerel (walleye), bass, pike and wild turkeys. 1200‘ of waterfront so you can swim in total seclusion or use the giant frozen lake as a rink to play hockey or figure skate. We feed about 17 deer all winter long along with 3 turkeys.

This south facing home was custom designed to take full advantage of the spectacular view and the warmth of the sun. Immaculate, spacious open concept interior home with custom hand made 1” maple floors on both the upper (inlaid with black American walnut) and lower levels. The flooring was made from the trees that were originally stood where the house and road are today. 4 huge bedrooms, an office, 3 bathrooms, walk in pantry/laundry room and a large screen in porch finished in wavy cedar and bass wood ceiling “cottage style“. Large family room on lower level with walk-out to lawn level. Large raised deck overlooking lake. The two garden ponds in front of the house are stocked with 8 year old goldfish .

Includes a (28 x 40) heated 4 car garage, 1 car hoist with two double insulated garage doors with one being a high door. Attached to the garage are two new large horse stalls. In addition, there is a new 24 x 30 sugar shack, 16 x 24 wood shed and an enclosed small saw mill with a new Norwood 23HP band saw and power feed all in excellent condition. The maple syrup operation is fully automated with tap lines and a vacuum/sap extractor system running to 900+ of the potential 3,000 taps. Located next to the sugar camp is a large stream fed pond surrounded by flower gardens. There is a small 10 x 10 tool shed and a large and a small run in shelter and a 40‘ log round pen for training horses.
