Property for Sale

Find independent businesses and city-favourite restaurants like Red Door Provisions and Sconewitch walking close, while nearby transit and pathways make daily life tasks a pleasant endeavour. The arts and cultural attractions like the Governor General's residence, Byward Market, National Art Gallery and National Arts Centre are poised for discovery and are mere minutes away. The commute downtown is short and sweet either on foot, by car, bus or bike.

No wonder it's a coveted locale. And the best part? This home is set on a large private lot - a rare find for such a central location. Set far back from the street and bordered by a picket fence; privacy, discretion, and a lush garden welcome.

Built by the same carpenter commissioned to assist the Honourable Thomas Mackay, this home offers a coup de coeur for anyone who appreciates a storied past and love of history.

Over the threshold, a ceramic-clad vestibule offers immediate respite from Ottawa's elements. Warm wood tones lead you inside the main hall with its centre staircase layout. It's no surprise that the construction of this home is solid and has retained its heritage charm, yielding the perfect jumping off point to update for modern family life.

To your left, a formal living room offers a sense of refinement to family gatherings. Period detailing around the commanding fireplace, hardwood underfoot and a bright window overlooking the picturesque streetscape are an alluring combination. Cross the hall and pass a convenient powder room to find a dining room steeped in history. An homage to the original owner's trade, this formal entertaining zone is fully clad in stained wood paneling. The chevron pattern and ceiling details give pause to any dinner party.

Beyond, a spacious and bright kitchen offers oodles of storage, working space and a pretty bay window. Make your way to the back of the house to find an informal family room or playroom. With its easy vantage from the kitchen, this is a great after work/school zone where you can keep an eye on your clan while dinner prep is underway. Find laundry tucked away in this multifunctional area.

Patio doors lead to a covered terrace and a sweeping, private backyard. The unique size of this lot shows off its benefits. Backyards and garages like this are a scarcity in the city. Not only does the original barn at the end of the yard offer two indoor parking spots with laneway access, the second storey can easily be converted into a studio space, workshop, or cool home office.

As easy as it is to leave the city for weekend easy getaways or jaunts to the nearby Gatineau Hills (only a 15 minute drive away!), the sprawling backyard and surrounding parks make a compelling case for spending leisure time right at home. Nature lovers and the active-minded will love the easy access and proximity to bike paths and trails all around the Rideau and Ottawa Rivers. Cross-country ski, snowshoe and skate in the winter, and canoe, bike and run in the summers. Ottawa is an active community and this address is at the heart of it all.

Back inside, take the stairs to the second level, noting the stained glass window on the landing. Upstairs, two bedrooms offer large footprints and big, bright windows. The main three-piece bathroom serves well and offers a fine canvas for customizing to suit your needs. In the master suite, generous proportions allow a tranquil refuge to take shape. Enjoy the sense of space - an adjoining dressing room feels luxe and the three piece ensuite is oriented towards sunshine-filled wake-up calls.

Access the third floor loft space with the accompanying ladder - it's worth the trip up. Plenty of light, a carpeted oasis fit for a fourth bedroom or creative space. Those with renovation motivation will make this a worthy project.

A dry basement is a testament to the impeccable craftsmanship and maintenance that has gone into this home over the years. There is ample storage, a cold room and a workspace.

Where else can you be so much part of the city's history while living in such close proximity to the buzz of downtown, along with the best parks and schools? Situated on a rare spacious lot and graciously laid out to accommodate the needs of a dynamic family, don't wait - make an appointment today!
