Property for Sale

An elegant stone walkway to the front entrance connects with a large driveway and garage, allowing parking for four vehicles. Within, the marble vestibule gives way to solid oak hardwood floors. A convenient front hall closet with built-ins helps to organize the space, while a French door keeps out the cold. Beyond, enjoy the classic layout, where formal spaces are separated from functional, family-centric zones. You'll marvel at how public and private spaces flow together harmoniously, yet offer seclusion.

Just inside is a formal living room featuring a gas fireplace with marble surround and built-in shelves for showcasing your treasures. Sweeping windows on one wall let in light while the front garden screens the view from the outside world, creating a perfect space for entertaining. Adjacent, the dining room continues the formal theme; dinner parties flow seamlessly between the two rooms. Beyond, the main hall opens up to the hub of the home: a large, quiet family room with enough space to also set up a home office or library. Access to the deck and backyard from this room adds convenience and extends its functionality even more.

Continue through the hall to the combination kitchen and breakfast room, which both feature heated, easy-care wood laminate floors. They're bright, cheerful, functional spaces. Crisp white cabinetry sits atop granite counters – there's plenty of work space and cupboards, yet enough room for multiple cooks. Butcher block is a smart, aesthetically pleasing addition above the breakfast peninsula and as a sideboard in the breakfast room. Storage abounds via built-ins in the sunny breakfast room, which includes a bar fridge and additional seating. This is a perfect spot to sip your morning coffee while you plan your day or entertain the neighbour who has dropped by for a chat. A sliding door from this area leads to the incredibly private deck and lush backyard. It truly feels like you've been transported to the country! Smart plantings yield visual pleasure throughout the seasons, while a pergola and sprawling deck set the scene for alfresco dining. Back inside and off the kitchen, a secondary entrance, mudroom with updated powder room, and access to the garage create a trio of convenience.

Upstairs, three bedrooms offer generous proportions, stunning natural light and leafy, green views. In the first two, find charming loft ceilings, ample closet space and beautiful vistas over lilac trees and lush surroundings. You might even catch a glimpse of a cardinal or robin right at your window! Both bedrooms are served by the updated main bathroom, kitted out in serene tones. A concrete-topped vanity with trough-style double sinks is contemporary-chic, while crisp white tile and a rain shower head in the combination shower/deep tub offers both efficient and indulgent bathing. A convenient second-floor laundry rounds out this space, while built-in hampers and storage keep clutter in check.

In the master suite, a sweeping footprint encourages flexible furniture placement. A shallow cathedral ceiling over tall windows provides architectural interest, but it's the opportunity to create a true adult refuge that will steal your heart. With room for a reading zone, sitting area or home office, the possibilities are unlimited. A wall of floor-to-ceiling closets keeps the room neat, while a full ensuite with granite accents completes your sanctuary.

Taking up the entire footprint of the house, the finished basement offers plenty of options. There's room for sleepovers, recreation, hobbies and movie nights, while a separate room with a built-in desk and bookshelves acts as a secondary home office, library, music room or fourth bedroom. A full bath on this level is a great feature that autonomous kids will love. Large window wells and an extra-large window yield ample natural light; additional storage and utilities round out this floor.

Located in an incredible community, this home offers every convenience. And with transit so close, say goodbye to shuttling kids around town, and never wait for the street or sidewalk to be ploughed in the winter. It's a quick commute via car, bike or public transit to the daily conveniences like grocery, pharmacy, local cafes and restaurants that are minutes away in Beechwood Village or the Byward Market.

An idyllic life awaits – don't wait, make an appointment today!
