1479 Squire Drive


Welcome to 1479 Squire Drive in the heart of Rideau Forest, Manotick. Surrounded by trees and undisturbed acreage, this custom-built home by Terra Nova is designed for growth and gathering. Entertain with ease inside and out, and watch your family grow in its many communal spaces.

Enter into your dramatic two-storey foyer. Marble tile underfoot sets a tone of elegance and quality that continues throughout the home. Enjoy the convenience of abundant yet discreet closet space.

Through French doors, your formal living and dining rooms await. Hardwood floors, crown molding, and decorative columns gleam under natural light from the rooms’ high windows. Host your guests with elegance and ease in these spacious rooms.

Your kitchen, informal dining, and family rooms are designed for open concept living. The gourmet kitchen is up to any task. Its granite countertops and stainless steel appliances stand ready to prepare a feast. The large island is designed with a sunken ceramic cooktop. Steps away, the built-in oven and microwave blend seamlessly into the custom cabinetry. Seat up to four people at the kitchen bar, or catch up on work at the built-in home office workstation.

Ceramic slab tile extends to your family dining area, which overlooks the rear deck and wooded backyard. Step out onto your cedar deck above the paved patio. The built-in gas barbeque and pergola enhance this outdoor space in summer months.

Inside, the sunken family room with gas fireplace forms a cosy retreat year-round. Built-in shelves display your family’s mementos. High windows welcome the light into this space.

On the main level you’ll also find the first of the home’s six bedrooms. A gas fireplace, surrounded by marble tile, sets a romantic tone for this large and well-lit bedroom. Built-in bookshelves extend available storage space, and the room offers access to an adjoining four-piece bath.

Beyond the kitchen, this home’s potential for providing comfort is truly realized. The capacious laundry room functions as a carrefour du maison, with access to the second front door, oversized three car garage, additional closet space, powder room, and backyard with clothesline. Here you’ll also find one of the home’s best custom features: a cedar sauna big enough for four.

The loft above the garage is the ideal private retreat. Constructed and styled with the same care as the rest of this stunning property, here you’ll find hardwood floors, lots of natural light, and even a private music studio wired for recording equipment.    

Upstairs, berber carpet softens the acoustics of the home’s four high-ceilinged bedrooms. The expansive Master Suite offers space for life’s creature comforts. Relax in your sitting area, or unwind from the stresses of the day in the ensuite’s deep soaker tub. The marble tiled bathroom is an oasis of tranquility. Prepare for the day ahead at the long double vanity, set amidst a plethora of built-in storage solutions.

Three more second-floor bedrooms offer plenty of space for your children to thrive and play. The shared bathroom is built for ease of use, with an extensive double vanity and lots of cabinet space.

The basement, accessible by three points, is the perfect place for fun and games. Here you’ll find a large recreation room with space for a billiard table and additional family room. The basement also boasts a full bathroom, an additional bedroom, and a den for hobbies or storage. Purpose-built storage areas include a cedar closet and utility room with space for all your seasonal goods. Lastly, the basement workshop, with space for all your tools and projects, is accessible from the garage.

This home is climate controlled with a geothermal heating and cooling system, both efficient and economical. The hot water tank is newly installed, and the water treatment system comes with new filtration.
