Welcome to Greystone at Kings Creek just West of Ottawa and South of Kanata Ontario and just twenty-five minutes from the facility where the Ottawa Senators play hockey..
This gated property includes 39.8 acres of land with extensive trailed forested areas, fenced pastures and an equestrian sand ring. An architecturally award winning horse barn that features four state-of-the-art stall areas and one wash stall. The main floor of this barn is a drive-through area with a full storage (hay/straw) loft area above.
An outbuilding/garage/workshop with four huge bays and five large industrial size doors for storage of equipment and ‘toys’ is peripherally located on the property. This building is setup for 240 V heaters as may be required. It is an impressive steel structure with concrete floors and at the side is a 50 foot RV dock with 50 amp service and ultraviolet filtered water.
There are two ‘never dry’ drilled wells on the property.
All landscaped and grassed areas surrounding the home and pool are irrigated from a drilled well that also serves the barn and associated facilities. The pool (50’ x 30’ salt water) water level is automatically maintained from this system. Landscaping includes recently installed ‘Night Scaping’ with high end LED fixtures and a twenty-year ‘finish guarantee’. All landscaping, planting and maintenance has been professionally designed and maintained.
A 20 kW Guardian Series automatic Generac generator ensures power for the home. The barn area is wired for a backup generator with a mobile generator in place.
The home is fitted with a 400 Amp Electrical panel.
Within the home there is a permanent cell signal booster system installed for improved performance of all cell phones and related equipment.
There is a monitored security system with cameras covering the gate, barn house, pool and all outbuildings. This camera system is constantly being recorded and web based accessible anywhere, anytime.
High speed Internet services are provided by Xplornet.
Within the house there is extensive coaxial cable wiring for Bell and Shaw Direct satellite systems that are supported by three separate satellite receiving antennas on the roof.
The pool area contains an enclosed cabana that houses the necessary pump, salt water generation and filtration systems. There is an outdoor shower with hot and cold running water. A water tap at this cabana has heated water as needed for cold days of pool maintenance. An automatic pool robot keeps the pool water and liner clean. A safety cover is included.
A separate installed propane barbecue is Poolside.
The pool area is fully fenced and surrounded by extensive flagstone. This flagstone is also apparent surrounding the back garden areas and walkways to the front-and back of the home. In the front and rear of the main home are majestic porch areas with custom-designed pillars and curved wood ceilings.
There are two propane furnace driven 75 gallon passively heated hot water tanks for the home.
There are twin high-efficiency propane micro-furnaces to also heat the house as well as the swimming pool water in the summer.
Basement sump areas are drained to the forest well away from the home. This drainage line is also utilized for drainage of the hot tub and is heat traced to prevent winter freeze up.
The septic system is contained within the large grassed backyard area.
There are eight entrance doors to the main house. The front entrance includes a unique custom-designed doorway with magnificent leaded glass and matching overhead and side lites.
In the covered and enclosed sunroom area is a self-cleaning eight person HYDROPOOL hot tub. This hot tub is affixed to a permanent drain for quick and easy maintenance.
The sunroom area includes a full wall of ‘Weather Wall’ windows for ease of conversion from the summer to winter climate.
Outside the sunroom area is an outdoor kitchen with sink and large professional DCS barbecue.
The Greystone home was uniquely designed by Tree House Design architects in Ottawa. Extensive stone masonry complements the inside and outside appearance of this spacious 7000 sq. ft. home. An elegant warm interior with a look of tradition (formal to country) is captured by the architecture of this home. Detailed wood work, stone and ‘built-ins’ are featured throughout the living areas of the home including the living room cabinetry, the fireplace mantle, the family room multimedia center, the office area and the cozy bar area on the second floor next to the media–pool table–card table area.
Except for the large vestibule and front hall area with marble floors, the home has hardwood flooring with extensive refinishing having been done in 2014.
Countertops are granite. The kitchen appliances include a propane Dacor 6 burner stove top with hammered copper exhaust hood, a Miele dishwasher, Dacor ovens, GE Monogram side by side refrigerator-freezer (with in-door ice and drinking water), two pop/beer refrigerated drawers, a Sub Zero dual temperature zone wine cabinet and a built in Panasonic microwave oven.
Two high-end media areas are situated within the family room and upstairs bar–living areas. The home is completely wired with high-end speakers (including areas of front porch, sunroom and pool) for audio generated within the family room.
House water is softened by a Culligan system and cleaned with extensive carbon filtration and UV filtration. Additionally the drinking water is treated with reverse osmosis.
Well pumps (2) have recently been installed with a Mono Drive system in the home that provides a constant pressure regardless of water usage.
