O’Reilly Residence: A stately home along the St. Lawrence River
Arts-and-crafts-style home on the St. Lawrence River draws inspiration from its rich history. It is located in the Township of South Glengarry and sits on the waterfront, offering stunning views and a connection to the area’s heritage. Additionally, with elevations at varying angles, the views of the water can be appreciated regardless of the time of day or the room you’re in.
This home boasts just over 4,700 square feet of living space. It includes five bedrooms (one of which is part of the in-law suite above the garage), and four bathrooms. Additionally, arts-and-crafts-style home contains a three-car garage. Furthermore, this home has covered porches at the front and rear, providing ample outdoor sanctuaries. With private sitting areas as well as more exposed ones, the beautiful views can be enjoyed both inside and out.
A tasteful combination of aged stone, cedar shake, and horizontal wood siding make up the exterior cladding. The combination of aged stone, cedar shake, and horizontal wood siding are all tied together with white trim, fascia, soffit, window frames, and columns, which creates a cohesive design. This design is also in keeping with the styling that has inspired this home’s overall aesthetic.
Simple low arches in window transoms and dormers provide a softening to the gable-peaked roof lines.
