O’Reilly Residence: A stately home along the St. Lawrence River

Located in the Township of South Glengarry on the St. Lawrence River, this arts-and-crafts-style home draws on the rich history of the river it sits on. 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.

At just over 4,700 square feet, this home boasts five bedrooms (one of which is part of the in-law suite above the garage), four bathrooms and a three-car garage. A covered porch at the front and two covered porches at the rear ensure there’s no shortage of outdoor sanctuaries in this stately home. 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. This is all tied together with white trim, fascia, soffit, window frames and columns, in keeping with the styling this home is inspired by. Simple low arches in window transoms and dormers provide a softening to the gable-peaked roof lines.
