OTTAWA VALLEY LANDMARK
Solid, stately blue limestone manor overlooking the Ottawa River at Sand Point dates to 1837, a time when the river was critical for transportation & trade, and lumber barons flourished. This magnificent home retains the architectural detail & character of its origins, including sizable millwork, ceiling medallions, 12-foot ceilings, interior window shutters, marble adorned wood-burning fireplaces, exposed stone walls, & a unique hand-carved stair rail & balusters. The main house features 5 large bedrooms on the 2nd floor. A respectful addition in what was originally the working kitchen & servant quarters allows for a fabulous sitting room with stone fireplace & a loft for a 6th bedroom with an ensuite bathroom. The size and layout make this dwelling ideal as a B&B. The grounds at 2.9 acres include a private in-ground swimming pool, ancient trees and a garden area with unusual plantings owing to the microclimate of the property. What a lovely venue for weddings or other special events. Views of the Ottawa River are stunning, especially sun & moon rise over the river. This well-maintained home has many updates (roof, wiring, plumbing, septic, furnace etc). Sand Point is located near Arnprior, just 30 minutes to Kanata.
