With the sights and sounds of the Mattawa River just a stone’s throw away, 750 Bissett Street is described in its listing as a “northern dream” – and it’s a true nature lover’s dream, too.
And beyond its scenic surroundings, the home itself is brimming with nods to the outdoors.
Just one step inside reveals a bright and spacious interior.
Distinctly Canadian natural wood details -- including walls crafted from hardwood logs salvaged from the Ottawa River, honey-coloured repurposed pine floors, and a sculpted custom-built staircase -- lend an unmistakable feeling of warmth.
The entryway opens up into an open-concept kitchen, dining, and living area. The kitchen, an entertainer’s dream, boasts stainless steel appliances, and green-tinted millwork. A commercial-grade stove with a flattop and two burners make for a chef-like cooking experience. For nights that call for homemade fries or Saturday-morning doughnut cravings, the deep fryer – which fits two baskets – will surely be a hit. All the while, an eat-in floorplan invites everyone to gather around and commune in this central hub.
The entire level is doused in sunlight, but no space is quite as sun-soaked as the living area. With high ceilings and ample room for furniture, this is the perfect space for cozying up as a family or for entertaining friends.
At the top of the stairs, you’re greeted by a charming reading nook. Steps away from this cozy corner you’ll find the master bedroom, which includes a three-piece ensuite -- including a built-in soaker tub -- and views of the Mattawa River.
For more livable space, you can venture down to the lowermost level, which includes two additional bedrooms, a four-piece bath, a recreation room, an office space, and a utility room with storage closets.
Also on the property is a custom-built garage addition.

Given the property’s riverside location, future residents will be able to enjoy the amenities of the pier, where a floating dock can be attached. Weather permitting, the river also offers opportunities for boating, fishing, and – in the winter – ice fishing. A true four-season estate, the address is also in close proximity to trails and ski slopes, including Antoine Mountain Ski Hill, home to Ontario’s longest (2.5km) run.
As an added bonus, this property allows the unique opportunity to tap into the exciting world of floatplanes, which take off and land from a water's-edge deck just across the road.
