Keeping pace with its natural surroundings, home is set on a coveted corner lot, far back from the road. Surrounded by centuries-old trees; a verdant garden punctuated by a vintage lamp post is a warm welcome for guests.

Within, double side lights and a wide foyer yield a gracious and bright entrance. A double closet and subway tile at your feet leave the elements handled and greetings free of awkward maneuvering. Mid-century hallmarks influence design; a split-level layout offers the coolest mix of family-ready spaces lit from all angles via large picture windows. Crown moulding throughout, potlights, and updates make this home 21st century ready.

Immediately to your right, the living room offers up limitless possibilities for entertaining large gatherings or hosting a cozy night in. In the dining room, a contemporary chandelier set in an original plaster medallion is a nod to having the best of both worlds; beautifully social spaces with updates in all the right places. With dinner parties bookended by sightlines to both the verdant front and back gardens, every hosting scenario sings with elegance.

Access the kitchen via the main hall or dining room and find a family must-have. Nestled into a bay window is a seated bench and eat-in zone. Perpetually sunny, your first morning moments are cheerful, while end of day homework supervision is picturesque. Chefs rejoice! Ingenious organization has been built into every inch of this kitchen. Pull-out pantries behind every cupboard, organizers in every drawer you open. There's a place for everything and everything in its place. Stainless steel appliances and ample counter space round out this incredibly functional zone. Nearby, a built-in credenza yields an ideal spot to keep recipes and daily schedules organized, as well as leave special family memories on display.

Take the back door to the outside and marvel at the natural beauty that is your private outdoor oasis. Framed by centuries-old trees, interlock leads to a sprawling patio area with tiered amphitheatre steps for dramatic effect. Entertaining alfresco has never felt this special. Enjoy a dip in the heated saltwater pool, read a book by the calming pond - there's one in the front garden too - or play sports with the kids on the lush grass. Flagstone links social zones, including a screened in gazebo for insect-free evenings. There's room for chic soirees under the stars as well as endless opportunity for outdoor play with kids and pets. This is how summers should be. Adding to the effortless management of seasonal fun - two cabanas store seasonal and pool gear nearby.

Back inside, take the stairs to the second level where three bedrooms yield generous proportions, plenty of natural light and built-in organized closets for all occupants. In the master, a wall to wall unit with built-in organizers and TV mount keep the space zen and clutter free. Elevating your adult refuge are tranquil views over the backyard - treetops swaying in the breeze, local wildlife, the sun sparkling off the pond and pool - is there anything better? Serving this level is a large main bath; kitted in marble, the heated floors and oversized glass shower are crowd pleasers. Indulge in the corner soaker tub on weekends - the private vantage means you get to enjoy the view while you soak. Plenty of storage and space is found here - a winning combination.

Huge windows and a walk-out feature contradict traditional basement expectations. Here, natural light reigns and effortless leisure and recreation follow. A natural stone bar hosts a wine cooler and snack fridge - keep treats close at hand for movie night. A gas fireplace with marble surround adds ambiance. Inverted tiered ceilings in circular motifs echo the semi-circular amphitheatre steps that sit just outside and lead into the backyard. Effortless transitions between outdoors and in make living here easy. Behind a half wall lies an area perfect for a home studio or office, while a three piece bathroom is finished with solid wood and granite accents. Nearby, a large laundry room with heated floors, all manner of organizers including a hanging rod makes the chore a pleasant task, while two car garage access doubles the utility of this space during winter months.

An alluring neighbourhood for growing families that is rich in social values and a one-of-a-kind vantage in the nation's capital. Transit is nearby, your downtown commute is speedy, and excellent schools are minutes away.
