Property for Sale

As if to keep pace with its natural surroundings, home is set far back from the road, surrounded by old-growth trees and a verdant front garden. A long, interlock driveway yields an elegant welcome for guests and banishes parking woes. Take in all that this post-war dwelling has to offer; cedar and stone facade are a great pairing for the hipped roofline and pergola-topped entrance. It's the small details that set home apart from its peers; a large solid front door with extra-wide side light promise great things within.

Over the threshold, a wide foyer with slate floors graciously continues nature's influence on design. Immediately to the right, a cozy living room beckons solitude and serenity. Wainscotting, a wood burning fireplace and large window are a trio fit for peaceful evenings and game nights. Two car garage access and an uber practical mudroom lie close. Back in the main entrance, the eye is greeted with a great sense of dramatic space - a few steps forward offer a glimpse of the vaulted cedar ceiling that commands the great room and leaves the second level hallway open for a striking visual effect - take entertaining to the next level here. This space can handle cocktail parties, swanky soirees and good old fashioned family time. A stone accent wall hosts a gas fireplace and adds a great sense of intimacy for quieter evenings. Large patio doors and windows overlooking a lush back yard offer a beautiful back drop all year round - watch the seasons change from the comfort of your own luxurious space. Your dinner party venue is a no-brainer, an open dining room repeats cedar ceilings and sets a refined tone for guests. Natural light floods in effortlessly via the adjacent sunroom - terracotta floors, huge windows and access to the back yard make this a highly used space all year round. Beyond a large archway, the eat-in kitchen area conjures images of idyllic morning routines; every day starts with a picture-window view onto the peaceful garden, along with a hefty dose of sunshine. Beyond a granite-topped peninsula, a spacious kitchen grants avid chefs the opportunity to create, concoct and experiment to their hearts content. A large clan is happily satisfied - endless pantry and equipment storage keeps tools organized and out of sight. Two large windows light up the space and pot lights take over once the sun sets. Stainless appliances, wine cooler, and a JennAir cooktop handle heavy hosting duties effortlessly.

Access the front hall via the kitchen - it's a nifty layout that keeps a great interior flow and out of earshot spaces that are appropriately positioned. Nearby a three piece powder room and side door are uber functional, but the open den is a unique winner - with natural light pouring in from the bay window, find an ideal locale for a music room, den, or study. Nearby find first floor laundry.

Upstairs, cedar millwork continues for great visual continuity. Five equally bright and spacious bedrooms eliminate sibling rivalry - everyone gets the "biggest" room. Know that one of the bedrooms has plumbing roughed in to convert into an oversized bathroom if needed, and each have multifunctional properties - you'll find that a nursery or productive office works just as well in these locales. A well appointed main bathroom serves - pedestal sink, soaker tub and walk-in shower manage the busy morning rush.

The master suite is conveniently located at the end of the hall for optimal privacy. A great rectilinear footprint tempts all types of decor dreams; a picturesque street view coming in through the large window. Light and serenity endure here - shed the day's worries in the jacuzzi soaker tub or oversized walk-in shower in the ensuite. A double vanity with his and hers sinks is a reminder that space is never sacrificed for style. Built-ins keep the walk-in closet tidy and organized.

In the basement, a rec room and oodles of storage make a great pair. Cedar closet ready to handle seasonal wardrobe changes.

Although home is optimally placed for picturesque bike rides along the Ottawa River or adventures in nearby parks, you'll find it hard to leave your backyard refuge. No wonder there are so many access points to outside - let the birdsong and rustling of the leaves in the trees serenade you. A cedar deck contours the entire back of the house, setting the stage for outdoor entertaining, morning coffee and memorable summertime souvenirs. A salt water pool complements the abundant green space, granting all kinds of summer fun, and bordering greenery and lush forest behind grant privacy in spades. Keep outdoor gear or water toys in the carport to one side, or indulge in the hot tub all year round. Feel your worries melt away.

The growing families that surround, great schools and nearby amenities are perks to an already top notch home. Make lasting memories, watch your clan grow in this friendly, distinguished neighbourhood - there's nothing else like it. Make an appointment today!
