Impressions commence from the street, where an interlock driveway and landscaped front garden meet the modern neutrals of a concrete brick facade complete with decorative cornices. Guests are left with an undeniable sense of home's reliability and warmth.

Enter into a large and bright vestibule - cramped comings and goings are banished. Ceramic at your feet and a large closet keep the elements at bay. Beyond, with a dramatic marble-clad and perfectly symmetrical circular staircase, home's exceptional scale becomes more evident. Find smart living spaces in an open layout, each centered around the focal point of the staircase. It's all framed in rich Jatoba hardwood and oversized mouldings.

To the right, the curved ceiling detail outlines a formal dining area, shaped to encourage chic dinner parties of any size. Nearby, a single french door leads to a den, study, or home office. The bright natural light and seclusion is perfect for productivity - not to mention a secondary door off the vestibule to welcome clients without disturbing the rest of the household.

Continue into the great room, where a jaw-dropping 18 foot coffered ceiling soars above a bright and distinguished space. South-facing windows are topped with soft arches, repeating home's circular motif and offering architectural interest to an already exceptional locale. The equilateral footprint and wood-burning fireplace encourages conversation groupings, and furniture placement comes naturally. Details like the Jerusalem marble surround and wrought iron grille on the fireplace lend undeniable panache to every gathering.

Adjacent, the open kitchen beckons - neutral hues coupled with granite countertops round out a flawless philosophy; abundant storage and workspace with peerless perks like a walk-in pantry with pull-out shelving, soft-close drawers and a wine cooler in the large island. Exquisite meals and informal hangouts follow with the help of a lovely eat-in zone surrounded by outdoor greenery. Access the outdoor patio during summer months and enjoy dinner or entertaining alfresco - beautifully manicured gardens complement lush surroundings to set a beautiful outdoor scene. A relaxing bonus lingers nearby. An indoor jacuzzi tub awaits post-dinner leisure time - a door leading to the outside and views of the natural foliage gives time here a distinct Nordik Spa vibe.

Nearby, find laundry with plenty of storage, access to the double car garage with additional storage space, and a freshly renovated powder room. The slate vanity and textured ceramic tile make a case for great design in every corner of this home.

On your way upstairs, note the Tuscan-imported crystal chandelier hanging above - an impeccable addition of style. 9 foot ceilings and a sweeping open landing yield a sense of volume - look onto the great room or out into the ravine vista. Enjoy the endless opportunities of a loft space that is bright and inviting - kids play area, homework space or library nook, or converted into a fourth bedroom - there is nothing it can't handle. Across the hall, a stone-clad balcony yields the perfect quiet spot for "me-time" - immerse yourself in the serenity of your natural surroundings. The master is as bright as they come, offering a generous footprint, spacious walk-in closet with built-ins and beautifully renovated ensuite. On-point ceramic with marble motif graces the oversized shower with rain-shower head, a floating toilet leaves maintenance a breeze and the large double vanity leaves room for mom, dad, and maybe a cute intruder or two.

A well-turned out main bath features a soaker tub and serves the two remaining bedrooms on this floor. Both boast beautiful natural light, walk-in closets, and one has a private balcony.

In the basement, family recreation dreams abound - winter woes are banished. 8 foot ceilings and mirror the sense of space in the rest of home. Mood-setting sconces set the tone in the large home theatre, a retractable screen easily hidden from view when necessary. Beside, a sweeping games room offers space for a pool table or flexible use for all. Natural stone and wood announce a distinguished wine cellar for approximately 600 bottles - what a way to entertain. Down the hall, a freshly renovated three piece bath serves a fourth bedroom with walk-in closet - ideal for a live-in nanny or in-law suite. Find additional storage including a cedar closet and plentiful under-garage storage to complete the incredible utility of this fully finished basement.

In a neighbourhood where nature is well-loved and tranquility is a daily benefit, nearby amenities offer convenient solutions to life's everyday necessities. Grocery, pharmacy, and a number of schools are within biking or walking distance. Adventures on the nearby Ottawa River bike paths await for year round activities - bike, walk, snowshoe or cross country ski - prioritizing family time has never been so easy or beautiful. Don't wait, make an appointment and see this dream home today!
