Enter the private courtyard of Laurentian House and feel the European vibe – you've passed into an enclave, set back from the street, spotted with natural growth. It's the privacy, the perfect proportions...you're hooked. »cont'd
A garage and covered surface parking stand to the side as a restrained premium that brings year-round benefit. Inside through a generous entryway, the living room is the first space to catch the eye – sky-high ceilings and bulkhead pot lighting extend the room upward. A gas fireplace warms a winter chill; for warmer seasons, find access to deck one of three. Here's your first glimpse of fabulous features – sleek California shutters on every key window in the space and pot lights on dimmers throughout – it's the smart, modern details that indicate designers have thought of everything.
Smart architecture has left living spaces tied together, ushering natural light from one to the next. See how dinner parties will flow – entertaining feels natural in a space like this. Guests can move freely between outdoor areas, passing through the kitchen, living, and dining rooms, never missing a beat.
A kitchen peninsula highlights granite beauty at its best, leaving countertops to steal the show. The award for clever function goes to top-notch stainless appliances, pantry space, and plenty of cabinet storage. The off-kitchen terrace becomes the go-to destination for grilling and al fresco dining; with foliage in full bloom, a desciduous backdrop lends privacy and beauty.
Guests will beg for an invite back with accommodations like these; residents will stay forever – in the second bedroom, a full wall of windows overlooking the courtyard and twelve feet of closet space combine refinement and utility. In the bathroom, serene finishes and the blessings of a skylight have a five-star feel.
Close the door to the master suite and breathe a sigh of relief...'ahhh.' Those few zen-like moments at the end of a hectic day feel exponentially longer in an oasis like this. Step down into the bedroom and sitting room like you're sinking into a cozy hideaway; turn on the gas fireplace, look out at Rideau Hall, and it's a done deal. The bedroom has never felt so inviting. Down the suite hall, soak the day away in an inset jacuzzi; claim space with dual sinks and a further twelve feet of closets. Interior closet built-ins and fittings mean every last bauble and splurge will find its perfectly appointed home.
A final ascent to the apex of smart urban living – the loft. In a nod to the old New Edinburgh, the rooftop terrace ensures utter privacy, and lends the perfect spot for a nightcap on a summer eve.
All the nuts and bolts of a modern home's function hide discreetly behind louvered doors in a basemet family room; there's no wasted space here. Curling up with popcorn and a movie sounds tempting...
Nestled in a walker's paradise, Rideau Hall is in your front yard, and the pedestrian entrance is steps away. Sunrise to sunset, the paths are yours for skiing, jogging, or exploration. If village life tickles your fancy, Beechwood will surely suffice; an easy daily commute leaves plenty of time for all of Ottawa's 'must-dos'. Find privacy, urban living and refined esthetic in one beautiful package!
