At the building's approach, stone columns and ironwork ground the building; above, brownstone balances with a hint of tradition. The entrance to MacKay House is recessed from the street, resulting in an intimate and exclusive first impression. In-unit, a formal entry hall leads guests along hardwood and under pot lighting; a wall recess leaves space for a console table and art to set the home's tone. Be taken by the hall's distinctive floating wall – the result lends architectural flair while remaining functional for furniture placement.
Within, a feat of design leaves natural light to three sides; high ceilings take full advantage. Open living and dining rooms lie beyond, spacious enough for guests to move easily between dinner and conversation zones. Natural light comes from the terrace doors and windows beyond – an advantage presents itself. Ground-level terrace views to the church and Governor General's estate blur the distinction between terrace and the charismatic neighbourhood beyond.
Back inside, sleek, clean finishes mark entry to everyone's favourite room in the house – the kitchen's pot lighting illuminates a spanning wall of white cabinetry and pantry storage, perfectly up-to-date and style-conscious with a subway backsplash, sink in granite on the island, high-end stainless appliances and dishwasher drawers. The kitchen culminates in highly effective, modern space that serves the cook in style.
Beyond, double doors lead to the den – whether it serves best as home office, library or third bedroom, a spacious footprint and room for a queen or Murphy bed leaves options open. Sleeping quarters aptly separate living zone from entertaining; bedrooms maintain a discreet distance to minimize noise and maximize privacy. In the hall, the main bathroom's granite, undermount sink and oversized mirror reflect light around the space for a warm, pleasing result. The second bedroom sits nearby. In the master suite, architectural detailing captivates the eye – the room's three distinct features are marked with recessed walls. Terrace access, ensuite bathroom and walk-in closet, and the bed's focal wall leave strong impressions for dramatic visual interest. In the ensuite, his and hers sinks in granite countertops and well-thought storage below leave plenty of space for two. A wide wall of mirror yields a naturally-lit, relaxing space where side windows over the soaker tub and rain shower optimize light – reap the rewards. Doors to the terrace give the room a certain flair; access to the quiet terrace feels fitting. For entertaining and the vibrant neighbourhood atmosphere, main terrace sights to Dufferin Street feel on point. For a low-key evening or morning cup of coffee, the lovely plantings and quiet serenity of the more private terrace fit the bill to perfection.
On-site locker and underground parking leave storage for car and gear at the ready, and the whole city is ready and waiting. Whether it's leisure offerings throughout vibrant New Edinburgh, a walk to Beechwood Village's fab dining, shopping, and services, or a commute to downtown, so many of Ottawa's hallmarks are walking-close.
