An exceptional vantage only steps from light rail and transit, your commute in any direction is scenic, pleasant, and efficient. Five star amenities including 24/7 security, sweeping outdoor terrace, a saltwater pool and premium fitness centre satiate the active minded but your surroundings compete for your attention: national museums, the hottest restaurants, natural attractions like the Gatineau Hills and idyllic bike paths - you're at the centre of it all.

What's incredible about this home is that its appeal starts well before you step over the threshold. Complete automation and a Nest temperature control system allow you to set the temperature, lighting, and start playing your favourite tunes all from your smartphone as you enter the building's lobby. Those in the know appreciate the power of a perfect environment awaiting their arrival.

Within, views on the twenty sixth floor are as epic as you would expect. Peel your eyes away from the incredible panorama of the city skyline, the spires of Parliament Hill, the architectural glass roof of the iconic National Art Gallery, the Ottawa River and Gatineau hills, and take in the details. A clear intention was set to upgrade and elevate every inch of this suite. Additional pot lights on dimmers throughout keep it bright post-sundown, built-in shelving in all closets yield clutter-free zones, TV screens are wall-mounted and angled just-so, blinds are automated, and it's all enveloped in a contemporary palette of cool neutrals.

Oversized tile and a large front hall closet handle the elements, laundry lies discreetly nearby. Beyond a well turned out three piece main bathroom, an open floor plan bursting with light and exquisite vistas opens up before you. A high-gloss kitchen combines contemporary design and smart function. Stainless Bosch appliances collude with a built-in wine fridge to make entertaining and culinary adventures a breeze. Granite and glass round out the aesthetic appeal while oodles of counter space and cabinetry promise workspace and storage is never at a premium. The countertop and eat-in nook yield an elegant venue for informal meals and pre-dinner cocktails.

The curved glass silhouette and industrial columns in the open living and dining room invite flexible furniture placement and an unparallelled backdrop to any occasion. Whether a casual evening in or a special gathering for a large crowd, marvel at how this multi-use space handles both with panache.

Smart separation of sleeping quarters leaves the second bedroom full of light, with floor to ceiling Northern views. Choose to make this an inspiring home office or airy guest suite - the outcome of both decisions is the same; a private and tranquil refuge for occupants.

Across the living space and near the kitchen, the master suite claims its position as your urban retreat. Tray ceilings and a floor to ceiling window add architectural interest and a sense of volume. The walk-in closet with built-ins ensures a zen-like presence at all times, and the ensuite elevates every morning and night routine. An undermount sink set in a wide granite vanity, chrome accents and a soaker tub and shower are kitted out in a mix of glossy white and charcoal grey. The effect is calming - you're ready to start the day.

Find a 21st century ready condo poised and ready to exceed the expectations of the modern urbanite. Such of-the-moment luxury just steps from the Byward Market, Beechwood Village and Parliament is a rare find. High end upgrades throughout offer daily efficiency while a totally functional layout offers a comfortable sense of familiarity.
