Just minutes from the quaint village of Russell (and 30 minutes to Ottawa), this rare property offers beauty, tranquility and nature all rolled into one. Settled in the middle of more than 25 acres, your nearest neighbours are wildlife! The beautiful log home is set well back from the road. To get to it, you must travel up the driveway which is 1/3 of a kilometer long and lined with white pine, mature ash and old apple trees.These eight acres of trees are part of a Managed Forest Property program, which gives the home owners a massive reduction on their property taxes. Zoned A2 (Agricultural 2), this property has an abundance of possible uses.
Lovely 2+1 bedroom, 2 bathroom, log home. Originally built with reclaimed logs, they were re-chinked from 2008-2010. All the windows were replaced from 2006-2009. The amount of sunlight that pours into this home is amazing. The kitchen counters and backsplash were replaced a few years ago. The kitchen cupboards themselves were professionally refinished in 2015. They are stunning! The bathroom on the second floor was renovated and freshly painted 2014-2015. And the master bedroom has also been freshly painted in 2015. A high efficiency geothermal water funace is very efficient cost wise. Pride of ownership abounds in this home. It is just lovely.
The lower level is fabulous. It has a play room, laundry room, forth bedroom, a full bathroom just waiting for fixtures and a massive art/storage area. Second floor has 3 good sized bedrooms, a full gorgeous bathroom and massive ensuite with a soaker tub as well as shower.
The outside of the home has been meticulously maintained and updated. The double car garage has a 220 outlet for heavy machinery. The owners have had professional outdoor lighting (most of it copper) installed in the gardens, decks and trees. It is a 12 volt system with a timer that costs perhaps pennies a day. The yard itself is fully fenced, hedged and landscaped. Loads of room for outdoor entertaining here!
Best of all, this home is walking distance to everything in the village – shopping (hardware, drug, groceries, novelty shops), recreation (arena, curling club, ball diamonds, outdoor pool), restaurants, library, dining, churches, nature paths/conservation areas and all schools (elementary/high and both Catholic/public).
