Accessed also via the kitchen, it is truly planned perfection.

Make your way into the kitchen via the dining room or main hall, but not before stopping into the den or home office.

Focus is immediately brought to the one of a kind marble backsplash. The swirling kaleidoscopic colour is offset beautifully by neutral cabinetry, a circular contemporary coffered ceiling and gleaming granite. Not just a visual stunner, this kitchen operates like a Michelin star chef: ceiling-reaching cabinetry, a corner window sink, plumbed-in Miele coffee maker, double wall ovens, and a generous island bring it all together. With a natural gas range, there is no culinary challenge this kitchen can't handle. Go ahead, be a show off - your family and friends will thank you. The adjacent living room proffers great flow for conversation and cozy nights in. Or, dazzle friends and family by day: custom full-width two storey windows show off a lush, private natural forest. This view, plus proximity to Kanata Lake is the reward for no back yard neighbour. A second fireplace is nestled amongst a tiered and columned series of architecturally designed built-ins and shelving - display special mementos, keep technology at bay.
