7348 Blue Water Cres, Greely (Waters Edge community)

This stunning, 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom (2 are ensuites!) home is located in the Water’s Edge community neighbourhood in Greely.  See below for details on the home, community and neighbourhood.

Built on a 1/2 acre lot, this brick and stone home is both comfortable and impressive.


Main Floor

The large foyer welcomes you home with the a sun filled den on the right (crown molding and glass french doors) and a formal dining room, featuring a tray ceiling on the left. Practical tile flooring leads from the front door into the chef’s kitchen – check out the glass breakfast bar, high-end stainless appliances, granite counters, and oodles of cabinet space.  A spacious eat-in area separates the kitchen from the huge family room, which features a travertine stone faced fireplace and a handy wet bar (also with granite counters) tucked in the corner.

Massive, east facing windows along the back wall of the home flood the home with morning sun and overlook the custom stone patio, fire pit, hot tub and view of farmers fields.  Let’s not forget the man floor powder room!  You’ll never need to manually water your lawn again with the automatic irrigation system in place.

A convenient main floor laundry and mud room off the kitchen provide access to the 3+ oversized garage.  The garages have three auto opening doors, and can park five cars or cars and garden / snow removal / recreational items.  Built in storage as well.  A door in the garage leads to a stairway to the lower level of the home.

Second Floor

The sweeping hardwood stairway leads to the second floor that is open to the foyer.  A full sized main bath and three spacious secondary bedrooms, all with hardwood floors, provide comfortable space for family or visitors.  The primary suite is a relaxing adult space with a walk-in closet and 5 piece ensuite – soaker tub, oversized glass shower and double sinks.  There is also a lovely spot to relax or read off this bedroom that overlooks the foyer – like an indoor balcony with large window.

Lower Level

The fully finished lower level features generous sized windows for that important natural light in the spacious family room with the 2nd fireplace & built in shelves.  The 5th bedroom has a large closet and a three piece ensuite.  Perfect as a teenage retreat or guest suite.

A mirror lined room with ceiling fan is currently used as a perfect sized home gym – able to fit fitness equipment and still have room for that all important yoga mat and stretching area.  Storage areas, utility room and the stairs to the garage level round out this space.

The Sellers have said that the amenities and sense of community in the neighbourhood are what they will miss the most about living in Water’s Edge.

Water’s Edge Community

Water’s Edge is a Sunset Lake Development  and is one of a select few developments in Ottawa’s south end, developed with nature and enjoyment in mind.  These executive homes have access to an active waterfront park with 2 acre lake, where the residents can enjoy the beach, with beach volleyball facilities and shaded seating, as well as a dock, paddle boating, canoeing, kayaking, and skating in the winter.  All homes have waterfront access, use of amenities and trails, and tennis through the Water’s Edge Community Association ($220 per year), which also organizes  a number of fun events throughout the year so you can get to know your neighbours and foster a strong sense of community.

With the fun of cottage living, the charm of a rural village, and the convenience of the city on your doorstep, life has never been so good.

Buffering the neighbourhood from Bank St is a newer commercial strip, anchored with a Foodland grocery store, then two parks: Village Green Skateboard Park and the Greely Village Park (tennis courts, playground, basketball courts, trails etc).
