At the corner of Putman and Springfield, a row of townhomes are a radiant portrayal of 21st century modern architecture. The creative minds behind Modbox are responsible for the Springfield Towns, and the corner unit shines amongst its peers. Curbside, the appeal runs high - the exterior elements of stucco, brick, and cedar pay homage to the surrounding neighbourhood without detracting from the visually extraordinary contemporary silhouette. A covered porch and leafy green trees offer the right amount of privacy for comings and goings through the frosted glass front door. This welcome is polished, welcoming, and totally impressive. »cont'd
More often than not however, it's what we can't see that counts. From efficient electrical, to environmentally optimal heating and cooling methods; there's an extensive list of sustainable features which give this dwelling it's LEED Gold certified status. A top-to bottom assessment gives home a five star rating, but the real critics - your kids, friends, the in-laws - they'll love it even more. Inside and throughout, it's the eco-friendly future meeting highly liveable spaces at every turn. First steps inside are flooded with light and an appreciative eye observes sleek built-in storage - keep your seasonal paraphernalia and end-of-day knicknacks coolly out of sight yet so reachable. Garage access here makes sense, and so does its radiant heat flooring - found both here and throughout home - along with a super quiet commercial grade door. Single strand bamboo flooring with a high-traffic finish leads up the stairs and continues throughout - another detail proving this house was meant for real life. The second level living area manages to feel at once modern and yet entirely inviting. An open plan reigns, high ceilings are repeated for continuity, and a sunken living room defines this social space making it feel exclusive, just right. Tradition-defying windows and a glass wall are used to marvelous visual effect; your guests will be impressed. Letterbox windows let in light but retain privacy; adding a touch of drama to the open dining area and adjacent kitchen. The flow is perfect for a bustling family or boisterous evening hosting friends. Have them pull up a seat at the hard working Corian waterfall counter while they wait for the main meal. Custom designed cabinets and designer tile backsplash heighten the cool factor of this polished urban kitchen, while high end appliances like a Bosch dishwasher and Liebherr refrigerator handle meal prep like a pro.
Upstairs, find impeccable, ingenious design waiting. The main bathroom serves both bedrooms with aplomb and sensationally smart features - a cheater door to the master bedroom gives an ensuite vibe, and a pocket door sealing off the water closet and individual sink serve the pragmatic needs of guests. An uber functional double vanity and glass shower feel so on-point and fresh; what a way to wake up. Know that the designer porcelain tile isn't just a beautiful finish here, it warms your toes - even in the shower - during winter months. Both bedrooms maximize space and light to stunning effect. The second bedroom plays host to corner windows, while the master boasts a built-in closet that is open yet hidden away from sight - wardrobe woes are banished by design. If there is anything home lacks, it's noise. Marvel at the peace and quiet - a critical factor taken into consideration by Modbox. Despite their appearance, each townhome unit is separated by 1.5" of airspace, making each a stand-alone home, attached only via the outdoor cladding. The secret's out, the mystery solved, and home is even more attractive as an urban retreat.
On the top floor, a highly useful wet bar plays the perfect partner to a chic rooftop patio. It's the epitome of urban living. With Parliament in the distance, create your own outdoor oasis with treetop views. Equipped with a gas BBQ hookup, rough-in for a hot tub - entertain, start a green roof or garden; the options are endless and always stylish.
An open and uninterrupted basement is an extension of the light and bright living spaces above. Polished concrete floors and 8.5' ceilings make it an attractive venue for a modern family's needs. A rec room or third bedroom to accommodate a nanny or older teen work well thanks to the practical Murphy bed. Laundry is handled effortlessly with an LG steam washer and dryer. Nearby is a well turned-out three piece bath - it's just as stellar as the one upstairs with modern finishings adorning each detail.
Find an efficient home with style in spades. The Ottawa River and surrounding bike paths nearby await adventure, while Ottawa's social, political, and business centres are a quick jaunt away. Steps from the best schools in the city and the village vibe of Beechwood, it's an idyllic existence claimed by the luckiest residents. Make this lifestyle yours.
