Property for Sale

The vantage is incredible; on a sweeping corner lot, centuries old trees stand sentinel on either side of the entrance pathway, offering privacy, verdant views from within, and lush curb appeal. A side laneway with separate garage leaves plenty of opportunity to admire the classic Edwardian facade. The symmetry is beautiful: leaded windows on either side of a covered portico are distinguished and sophisticated. A solid wood door with leaded glass sidelights and transom are framed by square columns. Look up, and find a rare bay window on the second level topped by a large gambrel dormer that showcases a sweet demi-lune window. It's all wrapped in timeless red brick for an appealing sense of dependability and tradition.

Within, find a time-honoured layout with elegant spaces and incredible original details. Keep the best and update as you desire. Stunning historic details you'll fall in love with: soaring ceilings, original cove mouldings and plaster ceilings, and original millwork in all the right places. Windows are large, bright, and offer sightlines to the privacy-promising greenery that surrounds. Leaded sidelights and transoms mark an amiable vestibule - take note, they are a lovely recurring theme throughout. To the left, a formal living room is centered by a wood-burning fireplace; ditch the TV and take advantage of the sweeping wall space and equilateral footprint to hang art and enjoy memorable conversations. Across the main hall, an unbeatable duo for entertaining; a spacious dining room sits adjacent to a sitting room and is divided by pocket doors. Originally a parlour, this bright and cheerful sitting room is the perfect spot for the kids to hang out while the adults enjoy an elegant evening. Perfectly proportioned for large social gatherings, an extended bay window in the dining room yields a picturesque backdrop to every meal. Guests are inevitably impressed.

Access the kitchen via the main hall or dining room. Running along the back of home, take advantage of those high ceilings for storage, knowing that the lot offers an abundant amount of space and opportunity for expansion.

Original banisters and newel posts introduce the second level. As you reach the top of the stairs, calming balance and symmetry is reintroduced. Front and centre, a sun room with leaded sidelights and a transom is home to a street-facing balcony. Whether it serves as a music room or home office, this sunlit refuge is special. Along with the mainbathroom, three bedrooms on this level feature large windows, high ceilings, generous footprints and closet space. In the master, a cheater door leads to the main bathtub and sink. A fourth room serves best as a home office or personal library. With such a large footprint, the possibilities for customization and reconfiguration are endless.

Original hardwood at your feet leads to the third floor. Get ready to yield this incredibly functional level to the kids in your clan. An open space centers three bedrooms, each offering up charming loft ceilings and treetop views. Additional storage along with a large walk in closet for seasonal paraphernalia is abundant on this level. A divided bathroom can easily be converted into one sweeping space.

In the basement, find plenty of additional storage space as well as laundry. A handy access to outside means seasonal gear doesn't have to be taken in and out through the house.

Outside, home is bordered by private hedges and plenty of green space. What a great opportunity to build your own alfresco oasis.

The best way to celebrate family life is here; this entirely convivial home is at the centre of an active community and favorably located - bike or walk to work and school, take family trips to Gatineau Park, the many galleries and museums, or simply head over to Beechwood village for some local flavours. It's the perfect refuge for family life to evolve - peaceful, engaging, historic - see it today.
