Through the door and one immediately detects hints of Pacific design influences. Notice the slate floor and a custom built ceiling-high closet with cubbies and drawers to maintain clutter free living. Continue up to the open concept public space and the first thing you notice is the light coming in through numerous oversized windows and the breeziness of the space. Welcoming you in, the home speaks of long evenings with friends or a place where family gathers.
An oversized marble island defines the kitchen, which has been custom designed around top end stainless steel appliances. Spacious with unique design features, the lines are clean and simple and set the tone for the rest of the house. Adjacently located is an out of sight pantry and powder room. The living and dining area has also been reshaped over time, and the underlying motif is sleek modern – the subdued wall colour contrasts with the birch floors, the gas insert fireplace is framed in a dark swath of wood – a décor theme that is echoed throughout . Several doors lead to the landscaped yard and to the immense deck and in-ground pool. Trees surrounding the property provide an incredible sense of privacy. With such fantastic outdoor living space, you may never leave your home again.

The very new bathroom is stunning with tiled floor, beautifully appointed fixtures and an immense glass shower stall. The master bedroom has an en-suite, completing the space in a functional yet elegant manner. In the basement, there is a cozy renovated home entertainment room with windows, a home office and a laundry room. Continue out to the attached garage, which includes an addition allowing for a large workshop area and important storage space.
The overall grandeur and symmetry perpetuated in the home is subtle yet noteworthy. All of the upgrades are a testament to the high quality of the workmanship and materials used and the intelligent incorporation of the existing structure and landscape. Parks, great schools and the Ottawa River and its magnificent trails are all minutes away. Remain centrally located while living in bliss and beauty in this spectacular bungalow.
