Big Rideau Lake | Cottage for Sale

Welcome to 170 – 763 Narrows Lock Rd; this stunning 4 season home is located on the highly sought-after Big Rideau Lake, a scenic 45 minute drive from Ottawa. Registered in 2007 as a UNESCO world heritage site, Big Rideau Lake offers more than 32km of boating with more than 50 islands to explore. Location, location, location, this home is perfectly situated on 2.65 acres with 600′ of manicured waterfront. Hudson Bay offers good calm waters for boats, swimming & fishing, as well as direct access to more open waters in the middle of both Portland and Westport. A short drive by car or boat to spend the day shopping in Westport or enjoy a cold beverage at the Westport Brewery or Schuermann’s Winery. On the Big Rideau side, you can grab a meal waterside at either the Galley Restaurant in Portland, or CC’s at Rideau Ferry.

A covered porch and flagstone landscaping greet you as you approach from the private driveway. Double doors lead to a spacious foyer; straight ahead oversized windows and a patio door open to panoramic views of the bay. 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. The main floor dining space is surrounded by windows providing 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 appliances will certainly please the family chef. Easily accessible off the hall is the main floor laundry and full bath. The master retreat on the main level features a fireplace and full ensuite bath, this private retreat evokes a quintessential cozy cottage feel. A loft-like staircase leads up to the second level with three large bedrooms, each with a distinctive design with sloped ceilings and secluded corners. The generously sized updated main bath completes this level.

The lower level is fully finished with a family room with propane stove, full bath, gym and games area, the perfect place for entertaining family and friends year-round. Directly off the lower level sitting area is access to the outdoor swim spa, deck, patio, and barbecue area. Take a stroll in the landscaped garden, through the towering pines, to the gazebo or to the expansive waterfront docks and take in the freshness of the lake air.

A winding stone walkway leads to the 30’x60’ heated garage/workshop and expanded parking area. With 2 levels, 150amp service and fully heated and insulated, this is not your typical garage. Enjoy your morning coffee with dazzling sunrises from the wrap around deck surrounded by wildlife views. Year-round activities with skating on your own private rink, snowshoeing amongst the deer, or enjoy family time making maple syrup.
