Find 461 Cloverdale, a study in scale and elegance, at an optimal Rockcliffe vantage. In front; Mackay Lake, behind; the Rockcliffe Rockeries. Custom built and designed to follow the principles of Feng Shui, home celebrates natural light, its abundant natural surroundings, and peaceful symmetry. Start with the nod to Georgian design, evident by the perfectly symmetrical facade, sash windows, and quoin brick detail. Perennials welcome in a verdant island in front of the entrance - perfect for offering privacy and additional parking space for guests. Never worry about an over-filled guest list here.

Inside, find a generous 7,000 sq ft layout – your family has ample room to grow and thrive here. Find a traditional centre hall layout with a twist - a picture window lies straight ahead and the staircase entrance is offset to the side for positive energy, effortless flow. Natural light and exceptional proportions are everything - find a home that is profoundly conscious of their benefits. Finishes have been carefully chosen for a flawless effect; oak with exotic wood inlay at your feet was finished on-site, soaring ceilings boast custom plaster mouldings and medallions. Conveniently integrated into the background is a Bose sound system on the main level, pot lights that take over when the sun sets, and custom silhouette blinds and California shutters.

Find formal entertaining spaces at the front of home, ingenious for easily separating family goings on from adult time. To the right, the formal living room maintains an inviting feel despite large windows all around and classical mouldings on the ceiling. Across the hall, the formal dining room echoes the living room's elegant reception-like vibe. The message? Cohesion, thoughtfully planned rooms that maintain visual flow and a connection to the verdant outdoor surroundings. A french door to the kitchen and family room lends variability - accommodate intimate family dinners and large-scale dining all under one roof.

Know the kitchen was custom designed for substantial entertaining - doesn't everyone always end up gathered around the granite-topped centre island, munching on canapes while dinner gets whipped up effortlessly? Here, it happens with space and comfort in spades. A Dacor gas range and warming drawer, SubZero fridge plus Miele wall oven and dishwasher are names that make any chef's heart sing. With the sink overlooking the family room and patio doors to the back yard, keep an eye on post-school hangouts, homework, or play time while prepping or washing up. Throw open the french doors during summer months and let the fresh air in. Entertain and dine alfresco on the interlock patio, and enjoy the heated salt-water pool. Professionally landscaped to enhance and maintain a natural setting, tiered rocks and luscious perennials like iris, honeysuckle and hydrangea grace every outdoor adventure. It couldn't be more picture perfect. Completing a leisurely tableau is the integrated irrigation system - all life's necessities, handled.

Back inside and across the hall, a main floor guest or in-law suite is practical and comfortable. With a walk-in closet and three piece ensuite, all needs are satisfied. Nearby yet out of the way, a well turned out powder room and front hall closet space keep pragmatic needs met.

Wide oak stairs lead to the second level, where a Juliet balcony overlooks the open to above front entrance - light pours in, and there's a perfect zone for reading, playtime or homework. Four bedrooms including the master offer generous proportions and treetop views. One bedroom has a cheater door to the main bath, where a double vanity offers space for everyone, and another bedroom boasts a three piece ensuite. Autonomous spaces are poised for growing family needs. In the master, a sweeping footprint yields flexible furniture placement, while two walk-in closets leave it clutter free. A body-jet and fully sealed shower offer a daily indulgence, or spoil yourself with the water therapy tub. A double vanity with additional space for a makeup counter right by the window show deliberate and smart planning.

The basement's garage access, built-in shelves, laundry, and abundant storage are just a jumping off point. The true benefit comes in the additional bedroom and recreation room, all beautifully lit by large windows. The three piece bathroom serves this level with chic granite touches.

Rockcliffe's best offerings lie at your doorstep - the Rockeries, Mackay Lake, the pond, endless bike paths and green space. Enjoy mother nature's best all year round - ski, bike, walk - you're in the middle of it all. Proximity to the city's best schools, Beechwood Village, the Byward Market and Parliament via the Parkway make every commute a pleasant one. Be a part of this beautiful community and make an appointment today!
