This welcoming house sits proudly on almost 2 acres of glistening Gatineau River shoreline and offers gorgeous unobstructed views of the water. It has been the birthplace of many happy memories and hosted innumerable gatherings. At the heart of the house the slate adorned fireplace warms up the main area where sit the living room, the dining room and an elegant kitchen. Upstairs 4 bedrooms happily lull the family in their sleep. In the basement, the vast playing areas are witness to the best ping-pong matches. It is also where yoga mats are spread out or ready for exercises. The best Chelsea has to offer within 20 minutes to Ottawa !

Additional Details

Discover the many pleasures our river had to offer: swimming, diving, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding, water skiing, natural ice skating, and innumerable hours sitting on the dock enjoying the warm summer evenings, listening to the wind in the tall pine trees, observing moonrises and counting shooting stars during the August Perseids.
Around the house several mature oak trees shelter the vast green lawn that saw numerous flower beds appear over the years, where the sweet nectar of multicolored daylilies attract hummingbirds and butterflies, and where hostas and other sugar-laden perennials invite the occasional courageous deer. The vegetable garden is often so bountiful that even hungry mouths are unable to munch all its delicious harvests. Meanwhile, the amazing raspberry grove offers exquisitely sweet flavours up until the first autumn frosts.
As our boys grew, soccer and volleyball nets as well as a huge trampoline appeared on the lawn, bringing together their many friends, their laughter and distant screams of fun ebbing and flowing along with the seasons.
The Voie Verte is a new and magnificent community trail, and as it makes its way at the back end of the yard it is a gathering place for neighbours, ideal for dog walks, bicycle rides or cross country skiing. Poets who venture out on the trail at times dare to say they still hear the echo of the old steam train that made its way up to Wakefield in days gone by.
A magnificent sundeck hugs the east and south sides of the house and has been the host of countless conversations under the warm rays of the sun. At one end of it a screened porch is a shelter for meals during poor weather conditions or when mosquitoes view themselves as vampires. The breathtaking views of the river and of the mountains on its opposite side are likely to hypnotise all those who gaze at them too long, especially when the time comes to enjoy the spectacular sunset lit autumnal colours.
We have babied our beloved house, pampering it only with good treatments. We are now ready to pass it along and share this jewel with whomever will know to appreciate it. Our neighbours, who are as discreet as they are generous, were quick to welcome us and will respond in kind for the next occupants. Who will be lucky enough to savour pure happiness?
