This is a truly gorgeous bungalow on a fantastic waterfront lot. If you are looking for a spacious, bright river front home, you have come to the right place. Please read on for details. This summer take advantage of excellent fishing, terrific canoeing and kayaking or swim to the off-shore island.
From the road, the lot looks like an average-sized lot. However a riding lawn mower is a pre-requisite to maintain this manicured 1.4 acre parcel of land with beautiful trees and lovely gardens. At the end of a long paved driveway is your 1900 sq ft all-brick centre-plan open concept bungalow. There is a gentle slope to the walk-out shoreline with a sandy riverbed. This summer tie your boat at your 66 ft dock when you are not cruising through the nearby 1000 Islands!
When you enter the front door you will be most impressed by the newly refinished
hardwood floors throughout the main level. The front foyer has a spacious coat closet. As you walk past the foyer you can turn left into the spacious dining room with cathedral ceilings. The dining room has a huge window looking over your partially treed lot. The nearby tall evergreen trees make you think you were dining at the edge of a the forest.
The large eat-in kitchen is centered between the formal dining room on the north side of the home and huge living room on the south side of the home. This room was completely re-designed and renovated in 2007 by Heritage Kitchens of Brockville. Details include a ceramic tile backsplash, Postform countertops and 1.5 sinks made by Kohler. The kitchen sink now faces south and overlooks the waterfront through the living room patio doors. The central location of the kitchen makes you think you are at the helm of a large ship :-)
The living room features a wood burning fireplace with custom brick work by locally renowned brick mason Jr. Kirkwood. The south wall is comprised of 13 feet of patio doors opening onto the 38 ft x 12 ft deck overlooking the peaceful bay. This room also has majestic cathedral ceilings.
The east wing of the stately residence is home to the spacious 2nd and 3rd bedrooms and main bathroom. The bedrooms feature overhead ceiling fans, double closets and two windows in each room to help take advantage of the river views! The main bathroom has been nicely updated with a one piece fiberglas tub and duo flush toilet. The modern melamine vanity with maintenance free one-piece top is just beautiful! Come for a look, you will be impressed.
The west wing of your new house features an oversized master bedroom with two large closets with mirrored doors. Patio doors lead to your large deck that extends along the complete south wall of your new home overlooking the St. Lawrence. Off the master is 3-piece bathroom with a large 36 inch corner shower which adjoins the main floor laundry.
The lower level has a large family room, the only room with carpet. The 200 amp electrical service is in the cupboard on the west wall. Adjoining the family room is a huge games room, with plenty of space to entertain or add a ping pong table and pool table. Just add your choice of flooring and the room is complete. A fourth bedroom could be easily constructed in the southeast corner of the games room. There is plenty of storage in 2 huge storage rooms and in the utility room. These rooms are discreetly hidden by modern doors.
The utility room is home to the Armstrong forced air furnace that was updated in 1999. There is a pressure tank, half horse pump and Myers water softener.

ABOUT THE IMMEDIATE AREA, THE COMMUNITY AND THE LOCAL TOWN
Johnstown was first surveyed in 1789 near the present day Odgensburg - Prescott bridge. The town plan was laid out with a plot of 1 square mile (2.6 km2). The lots were colonized by settlers from Ireland, Scotland and many loyalists including Sir John Johnson
A sawmill and gristmill were later constructed. In 1793, Johnstown was made the administrative seat of the Eastern District, which prompted the construction of a courthouse. The district's government alternated meeting locations between Johnstown and Cornwall. The old stone home on the south west corner of Elizabeth Street and County Road #2 used to be an old stage coach home at the height of the local community.
John Graves Simcoe, the first Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada, resided in Johnstown between 1792 and 1796. In 1808, the courts were moved to Elizabethtown, presently known as Brockville.
Across from your new bungalow is Spencer Island, known to the locals as Cow Island, reportedly owned by the native-American who reside in Cornwall. For many decades the Adams family, not to be confused with the more notorious television Addams clan, used to swim their cows from their property a few doors east to this very same island each spring. The cows would graze on the island until the autumn and then return home when the leaves on the trees started to turn a fiery orange/red. The natural beauty of this off-shore island is untouched. The fact it is uninhabited makes for a very dark sky at night since there is no light pollution emanating from its shorelines. Needless to say, the stars shine brightly above!
To the south west of this island, you can see the old Galop Canal. Just beyond the Canal is the main shipping channel for the big ships that traverse the St. Lawrence River to all ports of call to the east and west. From the end of the dock you can vaguely see one of the support towers for the beautiful Prescott-Ogdensburg bridge. Once you are out in the bay you can see the bridge in full view. An evening cruise to watch the sunset with the bridge in the background is always a hit with both out-of-town guests and locals alike.
Most of the other waterfront neighbors have 1 or 2 acre properties. Everyone keeps to themselves, but at the same time all the neighbors are very friendly. Most will go out of their way to help if you need it. On the north side of County Road #2 are similar sized homes and lots and many multi-acreage farm properties. To the east are approximately a dozen waterfront properties and then you have the big bay, a protected wildlife area, home to dozens of species of birds and an abundance of fish-bass-perch-carp-walleye and more! Bring your fishing rod!
Overflow guests expected for a long weekend get together? Conveniently located close-by to the west is Grenville Park, one of the best-run recreational parks in eastern Ontario. The park is under the stewardship of the Cooper family who run a very tight ship. The majority of the guests at the park, as many as 80% are seasonal clients who arrive in April and leave after Thanksgiving. For many this is their second home. The are quiet as mice and help maintain the park to its very high standards of cleanliness. Week-end and overnight camping is permitted at the far west end of the campground.
Two kilometres east of your new bungalow is the Prescott/Ogdensburg International Bridge to the U.S.A. This provides easy access to U.S. Highway 37 that leads to big box shopping in Syracuse and Watertown New York. Immediately across the bridge is the Port of Ogdensburg. The town offers it share of fine eateries as well inexpensive gasoline, a huge grocery store called Price Chopper that offers tremendous weekly specials as well as other fine outlets such as Walmart and Lowes. Many of us Canadians purchase tires for our vehicles in Ogdensburg and take our pets to the vetinarian clinics. The prices are often less than half for these same services in Canada thanks to Dalton & Co from the big city.
Immediately before the bridge is the Johnstown subdivision comprising of principally of 3 streets that run from County Road #2 north to approximately one half kilometre before Highway #401 as well as various cross streets. The subdivision was built in the 1960s and 1970s on farmer's fields, evidence of which is apparent as you drive up Sophia street. The local farmer still takes the hay off the 2 acre parcel just opposite the public school. Presently new homes are now being built in the north end of the subdivision with an average price of approximately $300,000. The subdivision's community centre is home to our Northern Exposure Marketing Team/Keller Williams annual food bank fundraiser. Mark this good cause on the calendar for Saturday, March 16th 2013. We usually feature a live band and collect non-perishable items for the food bank. This year we will be incorporating a late afternoon bbq into the plans for the event. Ooops, we forgot to mention, the community centre is also home to a baseball diamond and a fantastic outdoor pool that is open from June until Labour Day. However with great swimming in the river, you may never need to use the pool!
Just past the Prescott/Ogdensburg International Bridge to the U.S.A are a number of thriving environmentally friendly businesses: The McEwen gas station and convenience store, the Bridgewater Inn, the Bridgeview Restaurant, GreenField Ethanol, St. Lawrence Printing, Pirelli, Prescott Machine and Welding, and of course the big player, the Port of Prescott.
If going over the bridge is not your cup of tea, the Town of Prescott is approximately 12 km from your new home. Downtown Prescott is home to one of the finest local Marinas, 3 major banks-Royal-TD-BMO, Subway sandwich shop, both new pubs, O'Heapy's and the Red George as well 2 most excellent Chinese restaurants, Dino's Pizza on Edward Street, Bobby's Restaurant, Papa Larrys, excellent coffee shops and more! And of course at the north end of the small town is Tim Hortons, McDonalds's, Burger King, a Canadian Tire Superstore and a football field sized O'Reilly's Your Independent Grocer run by community leader Chris O'Reilly. Prescott and area are famous for many touris attractions such as Fort Wellington that recently had a new tourist centre built on site. The water is crystal clear and is popular for scuba divers. A huge shipwreck is located just west of Prescott. The Shakespeare Festival that starts in July and runs through the better part of August is very popular for both us locals and tourists alike. If you like to go for long walks, Prescott's waterfront park is gorgeous. Don't forget to check out the Farmer’s Market and the public beach and pool.
And if you need to get to the big city, Kanata is approximately 40 minutes from your front door via the 4-lane 416 Highway that starts only 3 km from the home at the interchange with Highway 401. Consequently downtown Ottawa is only 55 minutes north via the same route. Brockville, the City of the 1000 Islands, is 17 minutes to the east via Highway 401.
17 minutes to the west is the City of the 1000 Islands, better known as Brockville followed by Ganonoque and Kingston. We are 3.5 hours to Toronto. Going south we are located 2.5 hours from Syracuse and 2 hours to Montreal to the east.
