Custom Waterfront Home

Stage: Completed

Project description

Picture a beautiful river-front property with large pine trees and spectacular views of the Gatineau Hills. The owners wanted to replace the older cottage with their dream retirement home and engaged Jim Bell to make their dream a reality. The result is a spacious, open, light-filled bungalow with a master suite and bedroom on the main floor. Thinking forward to returning sons and daughters with partners and grandkids, there are three guest bedrooms in the basement to comfortably accommodate everyone for family gatherings. When it’s just the two of them, the heat can be kept low in the basement, saving energy and cost. A lovely screened sunroom brings the outside in without all of the pesky bugs.

Since the home faces north towards the hills, the windows are floor to ceiling to capture the views and the south-facing windows are large to fill the home with light at all times of the day. The detached garage is just steps from the rear mud room entrance.
