Welcome to 763-170 Narrows Lock Rd, this stunning 4 season home is located on the highly sought after Big Rideau Lake, a scenic drive 45 minutes from Ottawa.

Location, location, location, this home is perfectly located on 2.65 acres in the middle of both Portland and Westport in the Hudson Bay. A short drive by car or boat to either spend the day shopping in Westport or head to Len’s Cove in Portland and dine on the water. The 600 feet of manicured waterfront in the bay offers good calm waters for boats, swimming and fishing, as well as direct access to more open waters.
A covered porch and flagstone landscaping greet you as you approach from the private driveway. Double doors open up to a spacious foyer; straight ahead oversized windows and a patio door open up to panoramic views of the lake. The stone flooring curves gently into the hand-scraped hickory wood floors. With over 60 feet of stone spanning 3 levels, the custom stone fireplace is certainly the focal point; it provides the space with a cozy cabin quality and feel. From the floors to the soaring ceilings, superior craftsmanship is evident throughout this four-season home.
The main floor dining space is surrounded by windows for unobstructed views of the local wildlife, while dining and entertaining. The kitchen is the perfect marriage of modern and rustic design; granite counters, plenty of cabinetry, a breakfast bar and modern Bosch appliances will certainly please the family chef. Easily accessible off the hall is the main floor laundry and bath. The master suite on the main level features a stone fireplace and full ensuite bath, this private retreat evokes a quintessential cozy cottage feel.
A loft-like staircase leads up to the second level which offers three bedrooms and a unique play space for children. Each bedroom has a distinctive design with sloped ceiling and secluded corners. The generously sized main bath completes this level. The lower level is fully finished with Propane Stove, recreation room and games area, the perfect spot for family and friends year round. A full bath and guest room make this the perfect place for overnight guests, growing teens or an in-law suite.
