In a vigorously cherished enclave wrought with wooded streets and private panoramas, it's as if nature takes its cue from Rockcliffe Park's truly 'green' vibe. Notable residents from all walks of life would agree – on a quiet street in 'the Village', serenity is sacred and distinction is valued above all. On approach, find Georgian inspiration in the hipped roof and pillars marking entry to the home - a stroke of traditional formality. Corner block detailing adds interest to the stucco façade, elevating the home's approach to appropriately lofty standards. »cont'd
The wide entryway and vestibule French doors usher guests into well-thought entertaining and family living space. A fresh take on the centre hall plan leaves the functional stairway tucked away nearby, allowing flowing living space to remain front and centre and leading guests straight into the heart of the home.
In the kitchen, walls of trend-worthy white cabinetry play off the dark gleam of sweeping granite countertops and the visual pop of mosaic backsplash; nearby, while the GE Profile appliances and Faber range hood don't make the meal, they certainly lend a hand. An intelligent redesign leaves the primary sink looking toward the front window and vistas beyond, with a second sink positioned to the side. The kitchen's eat-in area has windows to thank for a solarium-inspired milieu – natural light makes for good mornings. Off the kitchen, a side hallway allows access to garage, rear deck, and nearby powder room. With the function of a mudroom, find garage access essential, the kitchen-to-deck transition appreciated, and kids and pets contained. Outside, an immense deck serves alfresco diners, while beyond sits the privacy residents expect from environs of this stature.
Nearby, dining room wainscoting and art-flattering pot lighting lend an air of formal elegance, while the room's openness maintains a relaxed, contemporary vibe. Step down into the sunken living room for the intimate warmth of the wood-burning fireplace, or fabulous year-round entertaining space. Find the stage set if rear patio door access is on your to-do list – an addition or throughway is a straightforward possibility. The den or office sits in proximity to the front door, advantageous for business or family needs.
Upstairs, note clever design has yielded truly family-conscious double linen closets, and bathroom placement ensures nearby residents and guests remain undisturbed. No bedroom dwellers are disadvantaged – large room sizes and considerable closets leave family and friends sleeping peacefully. The long master suite ensures a wall of mullioned windows sit front and centre, the scene outdoors private and verdant. With an equally indulgent closet wall opposite and a well-appointed master ensuite bathroom, find the space the exquisite answer to all life's calls for tranquility and order.
In the basement, ceilings go above and beyond 8 feet – putting finishing touches on the space becomes a no-brainer. With rough-ins for a bathroom, jacuzzi, kitchen or wet bar and pot lighting at the ready, an impeccably finished living space is within reach. The nearby oversized laundry room and workshop play perfect complement.
Find seasonal bliss out the front door – year-round offerings on the Ottawa River and Rockcliffe parkway leave the family strapping on the skis in winter, and walking to the Musical Ride or the neighbourhood pond in summer. With bus service nearby and downtown minutes away, the nation's capital is on demand. Make your mark on Ottawa's most prominent neighbourhood – be a part of it today!
