Property for Sale

From it's parkside vantage, a contemporary exterior greets. A stucco and natural stone facade punctuated by huge picture windows seems appropriate when taking in the surrounding peaceful street, picturesque park. Can this really be only a 10 minute walk from the downtown core? Meticulous landscaping marks your entrance, square patio stones mimicking the crisp sidelight and transom framing the door.

This one and a half year old contemporary home is better than new. With $200,000 in luxurious must-have amenities and upgrades well above builder standards, the hidden value in this home is unparallelled and rises above its peers with ease.

An extra wide entrance featuring oversize ceramic tile and ample natural light makes a proclamation: life here is easy, casually elegant, and very zen. Underscored by above and beyond upgrades like upgraded extra wide white oak hardwood throughout and on staircases, a recipe for effortless living materializes. The minor details have major impact: upgraded light fixtures throughout, Hunter Douglas Luminette motorized window coverings, and professional landscaping with built-in irrigation system make every day an exercise in luxury. In the wide hallway, find an on-point three piece powder room with wall-mounted brass faucet and walk-in shower. Next comes a large front hall closet, and finally, beyond frosted french doors, a sweeping room that can take the role of entertainment room, home office, or guest bedroom. No matter its use, occupants will love patio door access to the back yard. It's truly an oasis - shaded by an age-old tree, landscaped to perfection, find yourself entertaining alfresco on the regular during summer months.

Back inside, take the open riser staircase up to the level that makes living here oh so scrumptious. Filled with natural light, let your eye travel from one chic marvel to the next. Here's where home's optimal orientation shines: your days are synced with the sun. Start your day with an espresso in the East-facing kitchen, and finish it with a sunset view on the living room balcony.

Now for the details: soaring ceilings, repeated white oak underfoot, plentiful pot lights, clerestory and vertical windows showing off nature's best yet maintaining privacy, and glass walls to frame the staircase and maintain stunning sightlines throughout.

A custom designed kitchen clearly has impeccable taste and formidable entertaining in mind. With over $80,000 in upgrades alone, it's hard to imagine a superior kitchen scenario than this. An oversize quartz-topped island seats 10 - don't they always say everyone ends up in the kitchen anyway? On one side of the island, a beverage centre; with built-in storage featuring pull-out pantries, a camouflaged freezer, wine coolers, and trough sink - fill it with ice, pop in the Moet and let your guests help themselves. All built-in cabinetry here is the handiwork of renowned Deslaurier Custom Cabinets. A smart touch? Storage all through the island which means all of your culinary tools are within reach. The best part is that across the island, you can prep and cook undisturbed yet still be part of the conversation. Bosch induction cooktop and appliances, Fisher & Paykel double drawer dishwasher and a combo convection and microwave oven offer easy entertaining - whether you're 2 or 20. It's all grounded by built-in speakers and a back patio which overlooks the backyard - the natural gas hookup for a barbecue makes so much sense.

Move the party to the living room, where a plush banquette and eat-in dining zone offer up intimate conversations or family game-time. Low built-ins along one wall hide wires or tech, while simultaneously offering a casual seat for guests. The linear fireplace and recessed tv niche offer flexible lounging or entertaining options. Marvel at how a cozy night in or boisterous evening happen in the same space. Automated blinds control the sun, but you'll want to leave them open while you sit on the river-facing balcony, glass of pinot in hand.

Upstairs, the main bath exudes an organic calm - wood vanity and oversized tile do the trick for morning delights. Nearby find laundry tucked away. The second bedroom offers generous square footage and closet space - your guests may never want to leave.

A pure adult retreat, where all comforts are met and exceeded is found in the master bedroom. An incredibly silent Monte Carlo fan circulates air, a large walk-in closet keeps the space clutter free, and the ensuite feels like a spa. The walk-in shower with linear drain, rainfall head and body jets starts every morning right, while the double vanity leaves room for multiple routines. Make the standalone tub your regular weekend highlight. Gold hardware throughout keeps the whole space exceptionally current.

The floorplan ends in the basement, where you'll find plenty of storage and a home gym that feels like a boutique personal training zone. Glass doors lead you in, where your next wow-factor is the thought of ending your days with a relaxing session in the modern Finnish sauna.

In a close to everything neighbourhood where amenities are minutes away, the Rideau Sports Centre and bike paths and parks at your doorstep; find an incomparable place to call home. The 20 minute walk or 10 minute bike ride downtown via the Adàwe Crossing footbridge is a tempting commute. Don't wait - make the most of contemporary urban living and enjoy all the nation's capital has to offer - make an appointment and visit today.
