Property for Sale

Those who understand Ottawa know 700 Sussex as a uniquely effective place to call home. Poised on the beating pulse of power, this extraordinary development counts Parliament and the legendary Chateau Laurier as neighbours. Key downtown offices are a short walk away. And whether it's time to entertain associates or simply unwind, the extraordinary restaurants, cafés and clubs of the Byward Market are doorstep close.

This great urban space takes full advantage of its setting on the beautifully landscaped eighth floor garden level of 700 Sussex. The front door faces the light and lush greens of a garden oasis in the sky – a delightful park-like space that transforms every home-coming and departure. And all summer long it's your exotic backyard deck, offering sunny lounge chair reading, contemplative breathing space and sociable meeting place, too.

Step inside this home and you're met with space, light and endlessly intriguing market views, made intimate by stunning floor to ceiling windows. The reception foyer is elegant and spacious, as you'd expect. Gleaming black granite floors add a note of formality. Twin double reception closets manage seasonal outerwear effortlessly.

Inevitably, guests are drawn toward the living room by the panoramic views, from fully opening French Windows, all fitted with Silhouette blinds. In the foreground, the Byward Market's amazing George Street, with its flower vendors, fruit stalls and streams of shoppers, restaurant goers, unrepentant gourmands, and celebrants. In the distance, the spires and iconic landmarks of old Ottawa punctuate a panorama ringed round by the deep blues of the distant Gatineau Hills.

Once your eyes adjust to the views you can notice the essence of the interior space here: it simply feels … right. Colours, features and room shapes come together to create a place that leaves no doubt it's a true home, designed to put comfort first.

The natural birch flooring used throughout is light and congruent. The living room is well-scaled and effectively anchored by a substantial hearth finished in simple white molding and black granite. The ample dining area is defined with just a touch of formality, its city views softened by the adjacent greenhouse-style sunroom.

The sunroom itself is a totally useable addition to this space throughout the year, thanks in no small part to its custom built-in ceiling fan – one of three in this energy wise home.

Notice also the well-planned alcove office and nearby main bath/powder room. A full guest bedroom/den is a refuge for reading, work or media watching. You'll like the hinged plantation shutters, designed to complement the fully opening French windows here.

At the heart of this home is a delightful, tradition-inspired custom kitchen, built to entertain in style and to welcome culinary initiative (you are located next door to Canada's best known farmer's market, after all). Everything about this kitchen pleases. Proportions are considered. Recessed halogen and under-cabinet lighting is warm and inviting. Classic cream-coloured, Smallbone-style cabinetry adds contrasting notes of texture and interest to complement the sleek contemporary design. Showy touches like a plate rail, detailed frieze, and glass cabinets are unabashedly elegant. On the practical side, abundant storage plus a pantry banish clutter. The piece de resistance here: an utterly social bar island, perfect for casual meals and easy-going entertaining. You'll love it.

At the end of the main hall discover a master suite with a view, plus the privacy and comfort every adult refuge requires. There's a walk-in closet here ready for your custom fitting designs. The ensuite features a custom granite twin sink counter, elite oval tub and walk-in shower with custom shelf features. It's everything you need.

Amenities at 700 Sussex are designed to support success at every level. Of course there's a full laundry and in-unit storage. Great fitness facilities are always standing by. Whenever necessary, the complete concierge and business support assets of 700 Sussex are at your disposal, including equipped business conference rooms.

The rare combination of a deeply comfortable garden level home, a truly effective business-minded address and a world of entertainment and relaxation – this can be yours. But only if you act decisively: plan your viewing appointment without delay.
