This 1919 home bears the hallmarks of its surroundings; a sprawling lawn heralds a full brick exterior, while a side laneway cedes attention to the picturesque vine covered facade, double pane leaded windows and central pathway. With a three-level addition plus updates throughout - including two heating and cooling systems for optimal environmental control - the work is out of the way. It's time to reap the rewards of a beautifully planned and maintained home.

Enter into an inviting foyer kitted in slate and equipped with a walk-in coat room - a welcome feature throughout all four seasons. Original design elements offer an impeccable greeting - oak hardwood floors, plaster cove mouldings, high baseboards and detailed millwork develop true continuity throughout. Updates in all the right places blend seamlessly into the rich fabric of this home. Ingenious elements to note? Strategically placed lighting highlights works of art, and entertaining-ready spaces designed to host every Rockcliffe scenario with panache.

Sunlight from an alcove of windows draws all eyes to the formal living room. Surrounded in marble, the wood burning fireplace sparks conversation and offers an elegant focal point. Original leaded glass windows provide a peek into the family room - what a great way to keep an eye on young ones while the adults enjoy a distinguished evening. A Rockliffe hallmark lies nearby; the creamy-hued screened-in porch offers a tranquil respite from the bustle of main floor activities. Across the main hall, a dignified office or sitting room yields productive days and reflective evenings.

Down the main hall, a well turned out powder room sits near a pantry - space is enhanced with style and function. Nearby, a side door and access to additional storage and the mechanical room in the basement leave weekday comings and goings organized and out of sight. A hinged floor conveniently extends the footprint of the side entrance, managing seasonal paraphernalia and pets with ease. The kitchen's expanded galley layout pairs effortlessly with top of the line tools; Miele and Wolf are names every chef loves to hear. Finished in warm neutrals with granite and natural stone, the built-in dinette makes early mornings and post-school snack time a breeze. Designed by the late award-winning, Friedman Weinhardt, this kitchen stands the test of time and handles every family scenario. Make your way through the butler's pantry, expertly hidden by a pocket door when you want to keep the mess of prep work out of sight. On the other side? Find a social hub of delightfully elegant proportions and grace. Accented by an original wood-burning fireplace - guests are surrounded by charm and effortless flair. All you have to do is play the gracious host. Marvel at how both distinguished multi-course dinners and lively cocktail parties are suitable here. Adjacent, the family room addition fits seamlessly with home's original character - high baseboards, oak floors and windows all around offer an idyllic setting for casual gatherings. During summer months, a sweeping outdoor oasis competes for your attention. Savour the benefits of a large lot and flawless sun orientation. Equal proportions of patio and green space satisfy your ever-active clan; an in-ground pool, space for chic alfresco dinners, and good old fashioned outdoor fun. What an unbeatable summer retreat. Back inside, the second basement is bright and spacious - perfect for slumber parties and indoor leisure.

Upstairs, four bedrooms (two with ensuites), and a stylish main bath will surprise and delight with characteristics rarely found in a home of this vintage - ample natural light, closet space, and generous footprints benefit all occupants. The guest suite offers up a high end bed and breakfast vibe; a private terrace overlooking the pool and sleek ensuite are sure to please. Choose your guests wisely! They may never leave. Another rare finding? Second floor laundry.

Embrace the master suite's spacious layout: a dedicated sitting area, walk- in closet and open en-suite featuring a walk-in shower with rain shower head sets an alluring tone for "me time". Making a case for indulgence is the pool-view terrace - completely private and sun-filled, you can enjoy your afternoon aperitivo as early as Spring thanks to its southwest location.

This home's rare vantage in a compelling neighbourhood is exceptional, with easy access to transit and Beechwood Village, the Rockeries, and the Ottawa River. Hop on your bike or explore the endless nature paths on foot. Proximity to the city's best schools, Parliament, and the city's cultural centre guarantees a speedy and scenic commute for all. This is a place where luxurious, one of a kind living for the 21st century family comes second nature. Live it today!
