Property for Sale

First, the property – you'd have trouble finding another one like it in Ottawa. Period. It starts in the front with impeccably maintained gardens, large trees that provide shade and privacy and interlock brick landscaping with subtle touches of style that allude to the level of detail you'll find inside. Step around to the back and you'll be taken aback by what awaits you there. A large interlock patio looks out over a two-tiered, professionally designed backyard oasis, with a backdrop of mature oaks and cedars. It is highlighted at the back by a towering Catalpa tree that sprouts tropical, orchid-like white flowers in the late spring and early summer. The lawn ends with Graham Creek which flows lazily through the back of the property before heading into nearby Andrew Haydon Park and ultimately the Ottawa River. There are no rear neighbours here. A programmable irrigation system ensures all the lush greenery and growth stay in pristine condition.

The home is equally impressive and as feature-rich as the manicured grounds that surround it. Through the front doors, the airy, high-ceilinged entry hall provides sightlines into most of the rooms on the main level, the lush greenspace behind as well as the hallway upstairs, making all visitors feel immediately welcomed into the home. To the right, is a sunken library room with floor-to-ceiling book cases and a perfect reading nook with ample privacy and natural light. Also on the main level, facing the backyard, a great room in every sense of the word: built-in entertainment system with custom cherrywood cabinetry, sub-floor radiant heating, granite-encased gas fireplace and multiple skylights at the back of the room where the ceiling arches upwards. Beautiful French doors welcome even more light into the room and allow access to the back patio. A generously sized dining room with immaculate oak hardwood floors sits beside the great room and next to it, the kitchen. As the most frequented space in the home, you want a kitchen to be functional, comfortable, stylish and serene. Custom cherrywood cabinets, smooth Corian neutral-toned countertops and sinks, spacious pantry and island, stainless steel appliances and hood fan ensure all those boxes are ticked. But this kitchen is special. Beyond the operational area where food is prepped and dishes cleaned, the eating space extends from the main structure of the home into the garden. Skylights and 180 degrees of windows give the impression of eating al fresco. Here, the intersection with nature is complete, and you realize that all along the design of this home has been aiming to bring you closer to the plantings and trees that surround it. Radiant sub-floor heating ensures this space stays toasty in the winter.

Upstairs, hardwood floors run through the three generous-sized bedrooms. You'll note a strip of tiling marks the entrance to each room – a prime example of the subtle stylistic elements that are found throughout this home. In the two upstairs bathrooms, this same tiling pattern serves as the backsplash in the showers which also feature rainfall shower heads. Granite countertops and heated floors are found in both bathrooms, while the full bathroom features a Neptune air tub for spa-like massage treatment and the master ensuite features added body jets in the shower and heated towel racks. In addition to the well-appointed ensuite, the Master bedroom also has a spacious walk-in closet with built-in shelving and storage vestibules.

Downstairs, plush Berber carpet over a wooden subfloor underlies a beautifully finished basement. A comfortable den with built-in surround sound and TV space, as well as a gas fireplace, provide everything needed for relaxation and a theatre-like movie experience. There is also ample space in the basement for an exercise room, rec room, or playroom – the possibilities are endless. A twelve-foot long, walk-in cedar closet will keep your clothes fresh and fragrant and while this would usually be the highlight feature for a basement, in this home there is something that tops it. A painted mural of an idyllic French street scene opens into a custom designed wine cellar with passive cooling, built-in cedar racking for 1,400 bottles, shelves and a tasting table. There's even a tiled, makeshift 'terrace' outside the cellar where your guests can sit back and sip on the wines they enjoyed most from their tasting. You would be hard-pressed to find a better conversation piece and starting point (or finishing line!) for a dinner party.

Finally, location. This home is in the quiet and tucked away Stonehedge Park neighbourhood of Nepean. This enclave of executive homes is just across the street from Andrew Haydon Park and the Nepean Sailing Club - both on the shores of the Ottawa River. It's a fifteen-minute drive to downtown Ottawa and an even closer commute to the new DND headquarters on Carling, the Queensway Carleton Hospital and Bayshore Shopping Centre. Highway access is quick and painless to both the 417 and 416. Aspen Grove is also a cul-de-sac, meaning no through traffic and maximum privacy.

A home that takes this much description to do it justice won't last long, so don't delay booking your visit!
