On the shores of the majestic Lake Ouareau, in a panorama shared between mountains and rivers, in Saint-Donatque is the exceptional property that we take you to visit.
This typically Lanaudière natural environment hosts this impressive riverside residence. Protected by Lucie Laurin and Stéphanie Dionne of Keller Williams Connexion, this imposing house with a very contemporary character is made up of 15 rooms distributed over three levels. Built in 2015 and then completely renovated in 2022 and 2023, it now has a warm, contemporary style worthy of a seaside country house.
A magnificent turnkey property that embodies the desire you have desired for so long: a life by the water and a feeling of connection with nature! As an added bonus, you’ll enjoy all of this in a home that combines luxury and total comfort!
The interior of this residence is described as “a harmonious blend of classic elegance and modern charm.” You can already see it very well when you enter the entrance hall, whose herringbone ceramic floor adds an element of sumptuousness to this first space.
Then, we discovered the open area in all its splendor. Its abundant windows are undoubtedly the first thing that catches your attention when you set foot there.
Some joinery harmonizes with the wooden floor, in particular the steps of the impressive staircase with central stringers, as well as the beams that cross the ceiling.
And good news for those who are cold: the floor is heated throughout the ground floor.
Located in front of a large window that gives access to the terrace, the dining room takes on a particular character with its magnificent, solemn-looking buffet. Whether you use it as a bar or to display your special tableware, this color-matched piece of furniture perfectly adorns this section, suitable for both family gatherings and hearty meals with friends.
Along with it, the kitchen is undoubtedly the most captivating room in the house!
Equipped with a multitude of white cabinets highlighted by a backsplash that echoes the natural color of the floor, this kitchen is built around a stunning center island. Topped with a generous granite countertop, the island is topped with three bright light fixtures that match the cabinet pulls. With extra storage on one side and a lunch counter on the other, it will also give you a space to cook in a pleasant environment.
Backed by a second door leading to a covered section of the rear terrace, the living room has a wood-burning fireplace embedded in a stone mantel. It is flanked on both sides by a storage space where you can distribute your entertainment devices, classify your vinyl and store your logs.
We conclude the visit to this level with a notable bath. When a simple bathroom looks this good, you know you’re looking at a high-quality, skillfully renovated property.
The staircase leading to the upper floor first reveals an open section that will allow you to sit in the front row to admire the panorama surrounding Lake Ouareau. Bring binoculars to admire the natural beauty of the surroundings: at this altitude, the spectacle is doubly impressive!
Inspiring and relaxing, this boudoir is an oasis of relaxation that will become your favorite little retreat, no matter the time of year.
Three bedrooms are grouped on this level. Spacious, these discreetly elegant rooms have a similar configuration and identical aesthetics. The wall adorned with vertical panels brings a distinctive element to the decoration of these three rooms, inviting you to a sweet dream.
Last stop up: the bathroom!
Freestanding bathtub with freestanding faucets is the very definition of relaxation! You will immediately want to prepare yourself a bubble bath and rest in it for a long time!
This room with large tile floors is also equipped with a separate shower at the other end, as well as a double vanity to match the display case next to the tub.
The garden level is suitable for fun activities with its large open plan space that can accommodate a family room on one side and a games room on the other. This section with exterior access through a large window offers you a whole range of possibilities: cozy lounge, children’s play area, billiards or training room… There is no shortage of options!
The garden level also houses a fourth bedroom with rustic-inspired décor, a bathroom with separate shower decorated with colorful ceramics, plus a separate laundry room.
Situated on a large lot of approximately 90,000 square feet, the residence is accompanied by a single-width detached garage, and rows of trees on either side ensure privacy for the occupants.
While the lower terrace houses a spa, the upper one offers a phenomenal view of the calm waters of the lake and the mountains. It is ideal for dining outdoors and watching memorable sunsets.
In the backyard, you can gather around a roaring wood fire at the end of the day, and you’ll only have to take a few steps to access the sandy shore that borders Lake Ouareau, a body of water ideal for swimming and fishing.
The green terrain, with a gentle slope towards the shore, is conducive to various outdoor activities, while the navigable lake will delight boating enthusiasts.
This haven of peace is located less than 15 minutes from the services of Saint-Donat and in an area full of outdoor activities, 90 minutes from Montreal, as well as 1 hour from Mont-Tremblant and Joliette.
We are asking $2,675,000 for this rare Saint-Donat gem.
