On approach, take note of fine contemporary elements put to impeccable use - a neutral palette of dune and chocolate tones in natural stone are the jumping off point to a zen vibe. Ridged glass and sidelights on a well proportioned custom door light up every entrance.

Enter a broad tiled reception area, made even more impressive by the open to above entryway. With plenty of room to get acquainted, guests appreciate the custom armoire to tuck away their belongings. Understated yet impactful design details don't go unnoticed - tall baseboards, oak flooring, pot lights and integrated speakers throughout coordinate a theme of modern ease. From this vantage you'll appreciate the open layout underlined by a rectangular design theme that echoes thoughtfully throughout home.

High ceilinged main floor zones achieve an easy balance between flow and function. Epic window placement draws your attention into the open formal living and dining room. Designed to maximize natural light, the result is a well scaled, bright, space anchored by a marble-surround fireplace and crystal chandelier - entertaining is taken to a new level of elegance. You're unencumbered as you move through the wide main hallway. The reception powder room is elegantly contemporary: natural light and marble vessel sink creates the look. Find a mudroom kitted for family convenience; built-ins and a smart sink and counter combo handle post-gardening cleanup, gear, and all manner of family paraphernalia.

A trio for family comfort and convenience is laid out before a light-filled bank of windows: a kitchen, dinette, and family room produce this great family hub. Start with the ultra sophisticated kitchen that promises to be a magnet for culinary inspiration. Rich cabinetry plays off marble backsplash and granite counters - a textured and expansive offering for workspace and storage. The family chef will appreciate separate units for fridge and freezer - fresher food is the result. Viking range, Miele appliances including a plumbed-in coffee maker; only the best finds itself in this kitchen. A built-in workspace and sweeping island round out the space. Ingenious design finds a butlers pantry behind frosted glass doors that leads to the dining room - discreet, smart - prep work is nearby but out of sight when company comes.

A bright eat-in area allows for free flowing conversation - keep an eye on the kids during homework time while dinner is on the way. Cozy evenings follow in the family room where a linear fireplace lends comfort. Technology-hiding built-ins keep the space neat. Back yard access welcomes a space that is landscaped to perfection. A sociable summer space with natural gas barbecue hook up - it's private and perfect for long summer nights.

Stairs open to above and below are meant to offer clean design and they succeed in style with stainless square spindles and square oak banister. On the way up, light sensors on alternating steps illuminate the way during evening hours. A spacious upstairs landing and hall design yield a sense of openness. The pocket reading nook overlooks the entrance and enjoys natural light while offering a peaceful, cloistered reading space. Second floor laundry is a favourite feature. Arrive at the master suite through double doors - linear coffered ceilings are a great architectural touch while the treetops of McKellar park make a lovely vista outside expansive windows. Artful composition enriches this adult retreat, with his and hers walk-ins and a spa-style ensuite that exceeds all expectations. A glass walk-in rain shower with body jets is just the beginning. His and hers granite vanity with mirror-mounted sconces and a makeup counter, a water closet with Toto toilet, radiant heat flooring and a jacuzzi soaker tub grant daily indulgence. The balance of this floor is three bedrooms which are generous in size and natural light. Each has its own walk-in closet and three piece ensuite finished in quartz and clean, contemporary tilework.

Step lights guide your way to the finished basement - completed in the same tasteful hand as the rest of home. A sprawling greatroom lies before you - radiant heat floors keep the vibe cozy and high ceilings keep it bright. The kitchenette will come in handy - store drinks and snacks in the fridge for the best movie nights. You'll soon see why. A soundproofed home theatre is elegantly kitted out with dimmer wall sconces, plush carpeting and two rows of leather recliner seating, all controlled by your phone via Control 4, of course. A fifth bedroom or office sees infinite use, the three piece bathroom in calming tones waits nearby. A clerestory window allows light to flow into the home gym - rubber flooring and individual thermostat keeps it cool and ready for your morning routine.

Family sized homes with this level of design intelligence and craftsmanship are hard to find in an urban locale. Westboro village, the Dovercourt Community Centre, and two new light rail stations are walking close. Some of the city's best schools are nearby: the newly built elementary Broadview school, and both Nepean and Notre Dame High Schools are minutes away. Enjoy the Sir John A MacDonald waterfront parkway all year long, whether cross-country skiing or cycling with your clan. Easy highway access yields a quick commute to both downtown and the West end of the city. If contemporary urban style is part of your home life, book an appointment today.
