This $8.8M Ottawa estate feels more like a luxurious getaway than a home in Ontario

With its resort elements, sports amenities, and superlative layout, this incredible estate is truly unlike any other lifestyle property available.

As the weather warms up and the days get longer, many of us are yearning to spend more time outdoors, soaking up the sun and enjoying the fresh air.

And if you're looking for the ultimate outdoor lifestyle, look no further than the stunning River View Estate in Ottawa. 

Located on the shores of the Ottawa River in the community of Dunrobin, this single-family home has six bedrooms, six full baths and three partial bathrooms, and a six plus car attached heated garage. There is also an indoor pool and a two-bedroom guest house on the property, and it could be yours for $8.8 million. 


This incredible property truly has it all. From a private baseball diamond with stands and putting greens to a lighted tennis court, there's no shortage of activities to keep you busy. But that's just the beginning.



With 27.8 acres of landscaped grounds featuring water views, wooded trails, and sports facilities, as well as 835 feet of waterfront, this estate feels more like a luxurious getaway than a home in Ontario.



As you approach the gated entrance to the sprawling estate, you'll get a sense of the property's sophistication and tranquility. The perfectly-manicured driveway leads to the stunning home, where you'll find exquisite handmade light fixtures imported from Milan, built-in speakers and internet access throughout, and a state-of-the-art security system with phone, TV, and monitor access. But it's the indoor and outdoor living spaces that truly make this property special.


From the grand foyer with jaw-dropping water views to the spacious dining room and stunning arched hallways with soaring ceilings, the main floor is both elegant and welcoming. The large living room features a gas fireplace, glass-doored access to the exquisite library, and breathtaking views.



The open concept kitchen and family room offer views that take in both the water and the expansive acreage. Floor-to-ceiling windows optimize the light and space in these rooms, while the art deco kitchen features slate flooring, granite counters, and an island with counter seating.



The family room enjoys a gas fireplace and accesses the three-season screened-in porch, which is ideal for dining alfresco even in inclement weather. And let's not forget the indoor pool, which offers lounging space and a beautiful visual.




But that's not all. The entertainment wing of the home is perfect for guests and family alike. The large recreation room boasts a full bar with counter seating and even offers beer on tap. A second full kitchen makes entertaining a breeze and accommodates longer-term guests. And the large fitness room has direct access to the outdoors, so you can enjoy indoor/outdoor workouts with tranquil views.





The fabulous home theatre is a truly inviting space in which to take in a movie, while the octagonal sunroom opens to the exterior via six sets of doors, making it an incredible and relaxing entertainment space. And with an indoor wet bar and a great den, this part of the home offers endless possibilities for both work and play.




When it's time to retire for the evening, the bedroom wing offers privacy and luxury. The jaw-dropping primary suite enjoys a dream, custom walk-in closet, terrace access, and a huge ensuite bathroom. A second bedroom with its own ensuite bathroom and a laundry room complete the wing.






And if you have guests or family looking for their own private space, two amazing second-floor bedroom suite lofts with ensuite bathrooms and gorgeous river-view balconies offer the perfect solution. There's even a wonderful two-bedroom guest house on the property, offering living space, a kitchen, laundry, powder room, and full bathroom.


And if that wasn't enough, the property's waterfront not only offers beautiful views of the Ottawa River, but it has also been developed to include a beachfront entertainment and relaxation dock that's the perfect spot to unwind, soak up some sun, and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere. 



With its resort elements, sports amenities, and superlative layout, River View Estate is truly unlike any other lifestyle property available. And as the weather warms up and we start daydreaming about spending as much time outdoors as possible, this incredible estate is the perfect place to make those dreams a reality.
