And talk about a washroom fit for a king…

3. Your dream patio
We’ve got another riverfront property, this one on the Ottawa River just on the Quebec side. When you drive up to it, it doesn’t look like much, but holy moly from the river side of the house, it can’t be beat.
Geothermal climate control, 22-foot ceileings, boat access and a massive patio make this a must-see home.

All of this could be yours, for the small cost of $1.9 million.

The beautiful home is certain worth a visit. But it’s the backyard that makes it so appealing.
