Right off of Colonel By Drive, and up a slight slope, rests a private tranquil community of luxury low rise condominiums, offering all the amenities the heart could want. Residents greet each other on flourishing grounds of circular driveways, walkways and centrally located facilities. With unobstructed views of Ottawa's seasonally spectacular Rideau Canal, this subdued location showcases the best of the Capital with easy access to all that is required and desired.

Pull into a covered visitor's parking space to be greeted and assisted by friendly onsite staff. Take a few steps to the stately front door of a pleasing earth tone building and wait to be buzzed in. A sophisticated foyer and polished common areas invite fond memories of New York's most famous and historic hotels.

Before entering Unit 103, make sure to pause and enjoy the quiet. Turn back to notice that this distinguished ground floor condominium shares its lofty exterior hallway, with only two other residences.

Just through a heavy wood door, an entrance of black marble and crisp white closet wait to take coats, bags and umbrellas. Look around to feel deep waves of appreciation for a time when elegance, high style and excellent quality were mandatory expressions of a life well-lived. Marvel that each room, along the right side of this exceptional unit, has been treated to incredible bay windows framing open views of greenspace and the Rideau Canal.

A classic foyer of gleaming hardwood smartly divides living spaces from more personal quarters, providing a wonderful place to gather and be greeted. Creamy linen wallpaper adds splendour and texture to a circular open flow. To the right an impressive office and library offers beautiful custom built-in cabinetry, natural light and stunning views. With more than enough extra space, consider creating a cozy nook on one end for reading and naps.

Grand bay windows line the back wall of a formal living room large enough to accommodate splendid furnishings and the most expansive of area rugs. Opposing built-in cupboards disappear when closed or illuminate when opened to display china or a well-appointed bar of crystal and spirits.

The glass sliding door of an adjacent open dining room, makes the daily meals and celebrations of warmer months, even more fresh and enjoyable. Hosting responsibilities are made neat and handsfree thanks to an attached single swinging door. On the other side waits a newly renovated kitchen, reminiscent of a fine French bistro. Black and white checkerboard tile flooring is accented by clean new white under- lit cabinetry, including a pantry. Modern stainless-steel appliances include oven, microwave, fridge and desirable double-drawer dishwasher. A thoughtful and complimentary backsplash of slightly raised subway tile adds an elevated touch. Relish cups of coffee or the joys of light gardening on a secluded wrap-around patio, located just outside the kitchen door.

When rest is calling, a master suite steeped in Upper East Side glamour and dressed in deep emerald asks if you would like anything retrieved from a wall of ornate closets. A full ensuite bathroom presents double sinks, stall shower and therapeutic Jacuzzi-style tub with jets. A separate water closet houses both toilet and bidet. A well-matched guest suite or family room enjoys abundant built-in cabinetry and the same soft wool camel carpeting of the study and master. Guests will enjoy the treat of their own full bathroom with soaking tub, double sinks and fabulous mirrors.

Maintaining an active lifestyle is simplified by a wealth of onsite activities and facilities. Meet with new and familiar friends at an indoor swimming pool, whirlpool, sauna and gym. Challenge yourself and others on the tennis court, squash court and driving range.

Seconds from the treasured cycling and walking paths, and winter skating opportunities, of the Rideau Canal. Drive minutes to downtown, the Rideau Centre and Byward Market. Shop, dine and see movies at nearby Landsdowne Park or stroll the vibrant streets of Glebe neighbourhood. Comes with two parking spots and storage. Make an appointment to see today!
