Arriving, you're greeted by a polished reception foyer planned to assure graceful entrances. It's part of what makes this condo home's floor plan particularly successful. Your first impressions: quality, space and light. Gleaming black marble flooring lends a note of formality. Parallel mirrored walls and reception closet create a spacious feel and foreshadow the feast of light ahead.
Off the foyer a formal hallway leads past the guest bedroom/den – another thoughtful design touch. Locating the guest room far from the master suite, frees guests to come and go as they please. A floor to ceiling south facing guest room window aims straight down Colonel By Drive delivering astounding views.
Across the hall a well-located main bath with shower, accommodates guests with style, while also serving as a powder room. Appealing ceramic finishes and granite counters transmit a sense of quality. The linen closet is conveniently close to a fully equipped laundry room.
High ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows on two sides plus open loft style create an impressive sense of scale in the main living and dining space. Disregard the stunning views for a moment to focus on the highlights of this beautifully proportioned space and its adjoining open kitchen. Planning is impressive.
The kitchen welcomes chefs with top quality cabinetry, full pantry, plus an island style food prep and serving bar, fitted with extra storage cabinetry. Stainless appliances and granite counter tops complete the look. The floor-to-ceiling kitchen window is a rarity, even among the homes of 700 Sussex. The expansive serving counter keeps things sociable whether you're putting the finishing touches on an intimate diner or treating your entire team to the best views in town.
Day or night, the living dining room space is simply one of the great places to be in Ottawa. Mid-dark composite hardwood flooring keeps the mood warm. A classic corner hearth anchors the space.
Sit for a moment and drink in the compelling panorama of these floor–to-ceiling corner windows. South, the magnificent Beaux Arts columns of the former Union Station stand guard for tradition. Beyond, views of Colonel By drive, the Rideau Canal famed for boats and ice-skaters, and the gleaming dome of the new conference centre. In the distance the 1879 vintage brick arches of Cartier Square Drill Hall help frame the view.
To the East the rich symbolism of Confederation Square with its sculpted memorial is set against brilliantly preserved historic facades; including the Art Deco-inspired Central Post Office, and the Queen Anne Revival façade of 1890's Chambers Building. With no residential buildings nearby these vistas feel remarkably private.
The spacious master suite provides the perfect point of contrast– a sumptuous restful retreat. The suite is equipped with walk-in closet, and lush ensuite with black marble and ceramic finishing, plus twin vanities relaxing bath and walk in shower. The mastersuite's windows offer an intimate perspective of the regal Chateau Laurier Hotel, plus views of Confederation Square and Majors Hill Park.
