About the Property
Private Point In The Heart Of The Thousand Islands
You will see all the personalities the river has to bestow from this wonderful property! From granite cliffs over swift, deep, crystal clear running water to a calm quiet bay with a gentle sloping shoreline boasting a 700 sq ft dock with deep water for boaters leading to a 'cozy' beach. The dock is overlooked by a picturesque custom built stone 'Light House' shaped fireplace. A favorite of the tour boats passing by.
Our home faces south towards the U.S.A side of the river with FULL SUN ALL DAY LONG!
One of the biggest challenges of your day will be from what vantage point do want to revel in!
The property is surrounded with many well appointed decks and seating areas. One of these decks is high set and offers some of the most outstanding views, we believe, of the St. Lawrence River.
Artists, photographers and fisherman will have all of their senses thoroughly satisfied here. Everyone will want to lounge back and watch the freighters go by in the shipping channel or the smaller water craft, fisherman, water skiers, kayaks or paddle out to a near by island or keep their eyes on the countless species of birds, including our favorite, the blue heron that grace our over 350 foot private shoreline. Don't forget to take a swim!
Not only do we have almost an acre of property with a big back yard to explore across from a beautiful 18 hole golf course with curling rink, bar, restaurant, and banquet facilities to boot!, but a spectacularly charming, custom built home equipped with all the modern comforts.
EVERY ROOM OF OUR HOME HAS A RIVER VIEW!
This ranch styled home has a King Sized Master Suite that boasts 700 sq ft of HARDWOOD and PORCELAIN floors, FIELD STONE WOOD BURNING FIREPLACE , spectacular 4 pc 'spa like' bathroom with heated floor, a soaking tub with a wonderful vista and pretty much an 'outdoor shower experience' with a very special view of the river below! The suite has a private living area with luxurious down filled seating and pullout bed. A fully equipped kitchenette with heated floor and a gas barbeque right out on the deck.
Take the view inside out to the outdoor 6 PERSON HOT TUB one step away! Or take a plunge into the river off the 20ft high jump platform or a dunk from the lower slide.
The main 2 bedroom side of our home features a large open living room /dining room and proudly displays a HUGE GRANITE WOOD BURNING FIREPLACE with a big comfy cough, a chaise lounge and numerous
chairs. A unique live edge dining table provides seating for 10 with lovely shabby chic slip covered dining chairs.
The room is surrounded by exposed brick walls, arches, stained glass lighting and beautiful woodwork and cabinetry. This room also opens to a bar with a cozy bar height nook - great for conversation or game playing, making this room the heart of the home with wall to wall and ceiling to floor views of the St. Lawrence River.
The semi open to living room, fully equipped, fully custom eat-in kitchen with center island, all granite top counters, custom laid ceramic floor and a very large walk in pantry boasts a fully exposed stonewall and unique lighting fixtures and opens to a family room with TV and a spacious and welcoming foyer. You will truly want to cook till your heart's content!
The rest of the home is bejeweled with WARM RUSTIC HARDWOOD floors and lovely throw rugs.
You will find two beautifully appointed bedrooms one queen sized and one double sized and the previously mentioned Master suite with King sized bed and a twin pullout bed.
The den and the unique exposed brick built bar enjoy a wall to wall down filled sectional for watching tV or reading a book from the book filled bookcase!
The heated porcelain floor, 3 pc bathroom with wall to wall glass shower doors are a nice backdrop to the lovely marble top wood cabinet and sea grass arched mirror.
Last but not least a snazzy fully equipped laundry room completes this very special home.
This wonderful property is located in the heritage town of Brockville which has it's own attributes of things to do and sites to see. We are central to Ottawa 1 hr away, Kingston 45 minutes, and Montreal 2 hrs away. Gananoque with the OLG Casino is 20 minutes. Toronto is 3 hours and there are two international bridges to the United States 15 minutes on either side of us.
Our home is not only enjoyed in the fair weather months. The fall is quiet and explodes with vivid colour and the winter is absolutely breathtaking with its ever changing landscapes. We have cross country skiing at our door step and there are many terrific down hill ski areas within 1 1/2 hours away or visit Mount Tremblant in Quebec 2 1/2 hr away or the Olympic Ski Mountain - Whiteface, in Lake Placid NY less than 3hrs.!
So what are you waiting for? The easy part will be getting here the hard part will be leaving!!

Year Purchased: 1980
About the owner: My wife and I have lived in the Brockville area all of our lives. Our home was my family home and my wife and I purchased it when we were married. We have lovingly renovated throughout the years to what you see today. We have been very fortunate to make our living in Brockville and have owned and operated a furniture business. Like our home, it has had many changes through out the years. We first manufactured patio furniture and wholesaled it throughout Ontario and Quebec and we retailed the furniture in Brockville. We eventually sold the wholesale side of the business and continued with the retail (actually purchasing from the company we sold to) and expanded into other lines of patio furniture and accessories. In 1994 we moved into the location we are in today and expanded into a full line furniture and home accessories store called Casual Living. (Find us at www.casualliving.ca and on Facebook!) 2013 marks 30 years of doing business and serving the people of Brockville and area. We have raised 3 great! boy,s one of which works with us at our store and a 'much loved' dog, Docker, who is a fixture at our store!
Why the Owner Chose Brockville, ON, Canada:
It has been a joy and a privilege to live at our home in Brockville. We believe our home, like Brockville, to be a very warm and welcoming place and has been a wonderful back drop to countless family events and parties with family and friends! We are so fortunate to have the property this home sits on. The river and the scenery outside our windows is in a constant dance of change but there is always something old and familiar... invigorating, inspiring, peaceful and comforting that seems to sustain our souls.
