A charming tree-lined entrance greets you as you enter the Johnson Riverlee Estate from County Road #2. The Adams family owned the residence for over 100 years. The majestic five-bedroom stone home was built in the early 1800s. It is situated on three acres of land and has a beautiful panoramic waterfront view. From the home you can observe the big ships just south of the off-shore island and from the shoreline you have a terrific view of the Ogdensburg/Prescott International bridge to the west.
The stately residence has a lovely eat-in kitchen, formal dining room, huge living room and two updated full bathrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs. The home has new wiring and plumbing and is in good condition. Your guests will be impressed with the calibre of the accommodation.
Hardwood/softwood floors are throughout most of the home, except of course the bathrooms and kitchen! Like the four-bedroom home, a washing machine and dryer is also available on site. Two canoe, a paddeboat and kayak are included in the rental fee. A second kayak and access to the double garage is available upon request.
Many updates have been done to the building over the years including recently re-pointing all the exterior stone work-it looks brand new as well as a newer downstairs bathroom and laundry, expertly refinished floors in the living and dining room, new 200 amp breaker service, new wiring, new plumbing, and a new furnace. In the spring of 2006 we restored the upstairs of the home: We added new interior walls, vapour barrier, drywall and new bedroom closets and restored the pine floors. In 2008 we renovated the kitchen and the kitchen cupboards. We also added central air conditioning to keep you cool for those hot days of summer.
Pretty gardens and mature trees punctuate the landscape. Over the last many months we have planted a dozen evergreen trees as well as oak, maple, birch and ash trees. All this investment has brought the property back up to the five-star accommodation it was many years ago and be yours to enjoy summer after spring, winter after autumn. We are positive you will like the home so much that you will want to come back, year after year!
Along the shoreline we installed a covered canopy to protect you from the sun, allowing you to closely supervise the children as they play along the shoreline or paddle along in the paddleboat in the shallow bay. Take advantage of a canoe or kayak ride to the off-shore islands. Most are uninhabited and home to many small animals and deer. You will feel like you are a pioneer back in the 1700s! FYI: Years ago, the Adams family used to bring their cows to the closest large island each spring by swimming them across the shallow channel behind a small power boat. Therefore the nickname of the main island, Cow Island!
The Riverlee Estate is located in a picturesque shallow bay, with very little boat traffic as the bay ends several hundred yards past the home. The shipping channel is two miles/three kilometres away from both homes, so there is no chance of someone being swamped in a canoe by the waves of a 1000 foot freighter. Bring your fishing rod, the fishing ranges from good to great!
