Hidden Paradise on Big Rideau Lake !!!

Sensational year round waterfront property! Unique combination of 4-season comfort, convenience, privacy, pristine nature and fabulous watersports. Ideal waterfront "Retirement Escape". Paradise for boaters and nature-lovers.

Meticulously built and cared-for, ultra-low-maintenance, comfortable 2-storey custom home on a premium, private 2-acre wooded lot on secluded Bass Bay, on Big Rideau Lake's picturesque, prestigous, highly-valued North Shore, near Perth, Ontario Canada.

Cruise anywhere from your fabulous wide, strong, sheltered docks, via the Rideau Waterway (a United Nations World Heritage site), with navigational access to the St. Lawrence, 1,000 Islands, Great Lakes, Trent-Severn Waterway, and Eastern USA's Inland Waterway.

Located among extensive not-for-development Crown Lands in a safe, natural, sheltered, secluded bay -- perfect for the canoe, kayak, paddleboat and for swimming and fishing and protected dockage for your boat. There's clean, warm water at the dock for safe swimming, your own diving raft just off-shore, and the rugged, picturesque vistas, fabulous boating and 250-foot deep, crystal-clear waters of Big Rideau Lake's preferred North Shore await just meters away at the mouth of your secluded bay.

Commune with Loons, Deer, Great Blue Heron, Osprey, Flying Squirrels, Mink, Owls, Hummingbirds and numerous other creatures, among carpets of Trilliums and other wildflowers on your 2-acre wooded lot with numerous Sugar Maples. Hike the Trans-Canada Trail and Rideau Trail which traverse neighbouring lands. In winter, enjoy the wonderland by snowshoe, ski or snowmobile, skate the smooth, safe bay, then relax by the capacious fireplace/woodstove, or build a bonfire in the outdoor firepit!

255 feet of sheltered waterfront features a natural, eco-friendly, low-maintenance shoreline. Unspoiled nature is everywhere. Neighbours (many year-round permanent residents) are near but out-of-sight. Unbelievable privacy, seclusion & solitude, with quality, year-round road access. Just an hour's easy drive from Kanata / west Ottawa, or from Kingston, or from Ogdensburg New York, or just 3 hours from the ETR in East Toronto.

The dwelling centerpiece is a 36x14 foot 2-story "Great Hall" living room and studio with woodstove/fireplace, pine walls & ceilings, hidden storage with optional laundry, balcony/loft above, triple skylight, 9 windows and beautiful lake views. Other rooms include: 3 upstairs bedrooms PLUS main floor 4th bedroom or den; 1-1/2 baths; large eat-in country kitchen with custom cabinets, lots of counter space, lake & forest views on 3 walls; PLUS separate "Butler's Pantry" with additional cabinets & food preparation area, wet-bar, built-in dishwasher, microwave & freezer; and drive-in basement/garage/workshop/storage.

Tastefully and simply finished in nature's colours and neutral tones, extensive knotty pine walls and ceilings, porcelain, hardwood and premium berber floors, varnished Philippine Mahogany, Red Cedar and California Redwood trim, custom pine railings and custom Birch, Maple and Red Cedar cabinetry, the home exudes casual comfort.

Electric and wood heat, air conditioning, top-notch safe water and septic systems, modern 200-amp all-copper electrical and high-capacity copper/ABS plumbing systems.

This is premium "Viceroy" home, engineered and manufactured to their ultimate "Superhome" residential standard, with 2x6/R25 walls, R-40 vented steel-truss cathedral ceilings, triple-glazed California Redwood windows, R2000 vapour barriers and seals, etc.

There's 1350sq-ft of finished floor space (Viceroy-rated at 1610 sq-ft of equivalent living space), plus 800 sq-ft basement with workshop and drive-in storage, plus approximately 450 sq-ft of deck and 400 sq-ft of docks, fire-pit, wood-sheds, heavy-duty cruiser-grade 240-volt electric marine railway, sea-doo lift, small-craft launching ramp/beach, and moreā€¦ and everything engineered for very low operating and maintenance cost and effort, leaving more time and budget for boating, playing and entertaining!...

PRICE includes most furnishings, most wall decor, all appliances and all window treatments. Move in and enjoy! The boat, Sea-doo, Kayaks and Canoe (some visible in the photos) are also potentially available (separate transactions) for a turn-key watersports paradise.

This property could potentially be ideal for a "Family Trust" or joint / fractional ownership scenario, or to enlarge the existing dwelling structure. The 2-acre lot is rated for up to 9,440 square feet of total living space. There is ample space on the lot (satisfying current setback restrictions) for additional structures. Existing dock facilities will accommodate multiple watercraft. Road and hydro access are excellent. While no approvals have been sought, there have been similar developments on similar property in the vincinity.
