Pull into a semi-circular driveway and walk a silvery stone pathway to a stately front door, well-positioned beneath a Venetian balcony, and framed in windows.

Before entering, make sure to stroll impressive lawns to landscaped beds bursting with perennial plants and flowers such as leafy hostas, lush ferns and blossoming hydrangea. Marvel at cedar hedges, mature trees and look skyward toward the top of a giant maple, rumoured to be one of Rockcliffe's very first residents.

Hang your coat and bag and step into a breathtaking, high-ceilinged foyer. A desirable centre-hall floorplan makes for exceptional flow and pleasing sightlines in every single direction. Gleaming original hardwood and fresh white walls provide the perfect backdrop to carefully restored accents and mouldings of priceless original craftsmanship.

Beautiful natural light streams through an abundance of large windows, also at work daily to present a stunning rotation of Canada's world-renowned seasonal views. Notable architectural elements appear in visually delightful arched doorways, thoughtful angles and overall airy appeal.

Chic design patterns of black and white repeat in ornamental wrought iron work and classic black and white checkerboard floors, bringing continuity, cohesion and fabulous style. High-end fixtures and hardware add twinkle and flair, highlighting the importance of precise attention to every detail.

To the left, a stately bright living room extends outwards, in warmer months, to a desirable screened in sunroom. As leaves turn colours and snow begins to fall, feel the warm embrace of a space wanting for cozy candlelit nights, toasty beverages and a crackling blaze in the home's original wood-burning fireplace. Further clean heat is generated from soothing and well-maintained authentic radiators.

Plan and host both casual parties and elegant black-tie affairs in a house pleased to make every event most appreciated and memorable. Just across the foyer, a traditional dining room promises to accommodate a most splendid table, while still maintaining the intimate feel needed for celebration, storytelling and conversation.

Through a swinging door, a recently renovated kitchen blends European influence and modern convenience with unfettered respect for the best of the past. Smooth slabs of grey and white Italian marble outfit the counters and island top of this chef-style space, effortlessly matching with custom cabinetry and sleek stainless-steel appliances. A built-in breakfast nook is ideal for serving up a quick breakfast, after school snacks or keeping an eye on homework and projects. While waiting for dinner to be prepared, consider sneaking out the side door for a peaceful drink on an unexpected terrace, built for just one or two.

Curl up in an adjacent family room with a cup of tea, favourite book or to enjoy a movie or show. Double glass doors along the back wall lead to a spacious span of backyard decks, eagerly anticipating the next playdate, sophisticated garden party or raucous neighbourhood barbeque.

Stairs from the kitchen conveniently lead to a garage, second driveway and then down to a fully finished basement. Exercise or be entertained in an open recreation room, while laundry cycles through just around the corner. Space for guests and a powder room sometimes make all the difference. 

Be guided upstairs each night to a lofty landing, by the twinkle of a majestic chandelier. A master waits with ensuite bathroom and secluded personal library. Three additional bedrooms boast a wealth of space and sizeable closets, arguably well ahead of their time, and ideal for the creation of a dreamy home office. Upgrades to another full second floor bathroom include polished on-trend tile and an artistic vessel sink. 

Enjoy strolling, jogging or biking quiet streets and paths in a safe, established neighbourhood, full of natural beauty and spectacular taste. Walk minutes to Ottawa's finest public and private schools, meeting up with new and cherished friends all along the way. Shop and dine at the stores, cafes and delicious restaurants of Beechwood Village, knowing that most amenities are close at hand. Make an appointment today.
