Property Evolution

This property started with an two-storey 4 bedroom waterfront home built in the late 1800’s. The current owner renovated the entire home top to bottom in 1990, and bought the additional property next door, removed that house and then built very solid additions to the property around 1996 to 1997 which more than tripled the size of the home resulting in the expansive stone manor estate that you see today!

The House Summary – over 6000 square feet of above ground living space and that’s not all!

Hard to describe adequately in words – this home really must be seen to get the full appreciation.

From the moment you enter the large interlocked courtyard you’ll feel transported to another type of living.  The double front doors offer a welcoming entrance in between the two main wings of the house, with direct access to the patio and views down to the water.  Walking to the right you’ll find a large bedroom on the left (currently used as office) with a full 4 piece bath with stand-up shower directly across the hall from it. (ideal for live-in care or in-laws).  Step further to pass a large kitchen pantry and then enter the main floor of the original home to find a open kitchen, dining and living area with a natural stone gas fireplace.  Directly off of the kitchen is a 4 season sun-room complete with wet bar, with windows on all three sides giving great views of the yard, water, docks and boathouse. Lots of room in there for dining living and enjoying the views.  It also looks onto a patio to the left and walks directly out to the deck on the right.  Enjoy lunches or dinners either inside or out while watching the activities on the water.  Also on this main level, you have two powder rooms one in the sunroom, a laundry room, a convenient drying/ironing room, and then upstairs in this wing you have 4 spacious bright bedrooms and a four piece bath with walk-in shower.

If you venture left from the expansive main foyer – you’ll enter a truly enormous great room with a second gas fireplace and windows overlooking the domain.  Easily large enough for the biggest family gatherings! From that room, step through the double doors to the primary suite with two addition walls of windows (East and South facing).  Attached find two separate but connecting en-suites, one with a walk-in closet, the other with a wall of closets,  one with a luxurious soaker tub, one with a walk-in shower. Enjoy great peaceful separation from the rest of the occupants or guests of the home!

From the great room there is also a second foyer which leads directly to the garages and subsequent 3-storey workshop.  There is also a stair case down to the partially finished nearly 1600 foot recreation room flooded with natural light and with it’s own covered entrance to the outside.

Also directly off the Great Room, a door gives access to the foyer and stairs leading to the second floor apartment. The second floor apartment also has direct private access to the outside from this foyer.

Two Bedroom Apartment

Above the garage and storage areas lies a lovely two bedroom apartment of approximately 1500 square feet – easily larger than many bungalows.  The bedrooms, one currently used as a den, both overlook the front courtyard.  The primary bedroom fits a king-size bed, includes a large walk-in closet and direct second door access to the full bathroom.  The apartment also includes a very large kitchen, dining and living area all with gorgeous water views south and east as far as the eye can see.  There is also a laundry room and direct access from the laundry room to the top floor of the workshop which has a lift making it easy access to bring furniture in or out.

The Main Garage

The main garage is an oversized double and has a electrical and water room behind plus storage and work rooms plus a powder room with washtubs for those wanting to clean off from outside.  The garage is directly accessible from inside the house or through the 2 garage doors, or the walk-through door next to the garage doors or from the workshop.  It is in pristine condition. Whether you like to collect cars or collect boats – you’ve got the place to have them here and work on them all winter long!

The Workshop/Studio/Warehouse/Extra Garage, Craft Space/Storage

Originally intended to be a warehouse for the owner’s business, it’s a really unique space to which its uses are only limited to your imagination.  What would you use it for, entertainment studio, dog training, workshop, car museum, crafts? There is an 11′ garage door to enter from the front, a large part of the main level is two storey’s in height with a mezzanine above and a large basement below. Storage cabinets abound everywhere. The is also a large lift serving all three levels.  The main level easily allows for inside parking of 4 or 5 more cars or vehicles! Car Collectors? Boat Collectors? Let your imagination run wild – there’s enough space for the whole family’s hobbies!  400 AMP service also means you have the power available to do it!

The River, Seawall, Dock and 2 slip Boathouse

Down at the shore of the St. Laurence you’ve got a beautiful steel pile driven seawall – cantilevered dock, decks and a 2 slip boathouse with lifts for both boats and a double garage door.  Space to walk around the boats inside with storage and a convenient sink that can used pumped river water for fish or pet cleaning etc.  Besides the large dock you have a large deck, retractable awning and gazebo, and close-by a large shed to store more of the beach or water toys.  New restrictions on waterside constructions would mean trying to add such a seawall, dock and boathouse to a property today is not a very likely possibility. But it’s already here and grandfathered.  So much fun to be had here, so much convenience with structures built to last a very long time.

The wonderful location across from St. Francis Island means that the current is a bit gentler than when you are right on the main channel. Yet you are still able to enjoy watching the cargo ships pass the island, or the private airplanes coming from the nearby airstrip, or the family enjoying the water activities.  Easy boat access to go out to dinner or marinas or friends!

Description of Utilities – 400 AMP Service plus 200 AMP

The property has two septic systems both newly put in in the 90’s, it also has two wells, but one is currently not in use, as one has been more than sufficient for the water needs of the property. The home addition and the two bedroom apartment are each separately heated by a high efficiency propane furnace, the original two storey is heated by an electric furnace. Central air is also installed. There is 200 Amps power to the original house and 400 AMP brought in underground to power the addition, with a separate panel and meter for the 2 bedroom apartment. So lots of power for whatever you wish to do in that workshop!  You’ll likely be pleased to note Hydro is provided by Fortis – not Hydro One.

Location Location Location – 6780 Pilon Point

This is really the land of resort and relaxation and fun here – and you’ll get that feeling as you drive the gorgeous scenic route #2 along the water east from Cornwall.  It’s about 10 or 15 minutes east of Cornwall, just west of Summerstown and well back from the highway and traffic. Roughly an hour and 20 minutes from downtown Ottawa, and the same distance from downtown Montreal. Very close to Akwesasne and upper New York State. Great location for swimming and boating.  You have pretty well open boating nearby as the far shore across the river is still part of Canada (Quebec) and of course being located on the St. Lawrence River, the great lakes, the seaway and the rest of the world now becomes your oyster boating wise!

School bus comes to the top of the property – so the kids can wait in the warmth inside while awaiting it’s arrival. Garbage pickup is at the curb right from your stainless steel bins!
