As it should be, every arrival grants a sense of warmth. Your welcome is guided by a verdant lawn and concluded with a picturesque portico - complete with a swinging porch bench. It comes in handy for weekends watching the kids play outside or taking in summer thunderstorms.

Over the threshold, an open layout with smart finishes make a great pair. Custom designed by the original owner - an architect - this dwelling has only changed hands a few times. A ceramic tiled vestibule coupled with ample storage leaves Ottawa's four seasons at bay. To the right, a brick half wall grounds and delineates an open living and dining area. On one side; a fireplace sets the scene for convivial gatherings. Furniture placement comes easy and entertaining is a breeze in this equilateral space. Hardwood underfoot adds warmth.

On the other side, the heart of home beckons. This zone is wise in the use of flow, balance and light. With its granite topped centre island, abundant cabinetry, prep-sink area and drawer storage, this stunning open kitchen and dinette surprises with a sense of ease. Bright windows above a large double sink leave post school fun well supervised. Entertain distinguished guests, manage family routines - what makes this home extra special is the seamless blend of formal to informal spaces - that half-wall comes in handy when you want to leave the prep work out of sight while entertaining. Details appeal too: shaker cabinetry with brushed steel hardware, light-reflecting pendants, and JennAir fridge are a winning combo. Surrounded on three sides by a naturally lush back yard, the dinette means that even informal meals are special. Sightlines and access to a peaceful outdoor oasis reap dividends. A blooming crab apple tree and mature cedar hedges yield alfresco play and dining - summer is as it should be.

The balance of this level underscores this home's origins as a bungalow. The benefits are many. In the full bath with large walk-in shower; updated ceramic and a handy niche keeps morning ablutions stylish and efficient. Nearby, two rooms are scaled for comfort - one boasts a bay window overlooking the back yard - the perfect playroom, nanny or in-law suite perhaps? While the second makes a solid case for working from home. Secluded from the bustle of primary social zones, but easily accessible when your clan needs you.

Four rooms on the second level offer continuity in the best way: well-proportioned spaces that maximize contentment, and oodles of storage satisfy all occupants. In two bedrooms, wall to wall built-ins leave every inch clutter-free and easy to maintain. A glass-walled room offers up tree-top views and birdsong in the morning hours: secondary home office? Artist studio? Inspiration strikes easily here. The main bath is spacious - porcelain underfoot is a luxurious touch. Serenity and thoughtful planning rules in the primary suite. With its exceptional built-in storage and walk-in closet, even the most passionate fashionista can easily maintain a zen-like refuge. An on-point ensuite guarantees pleasant mornings - even in the winter! Clad with stone accents and equipped with a double vanity, walk-in shower with rain shower head, morning and evening routines are grounded in calm.

On your way to the lower level, a side door landing yields private access for undisturbed comings and goings. A freshly renovated recreation and leisure zone is cool and functional; exposed brick and an electric fireplace keep it cozy. Winter evenings are handled. A laundry alcove makes sense. The balance of this level is yours to customize. Seemingly endless space includes an egress window should another bedroom feel necessary, plus ample storage space for outdoor gear is ready and waiting.

It's here: that elusive combination of understated elegance and highly liveable spaces in a home that exceeds every expectation. Enjoy the unequalled lifestyle that comes with an address like this: a scenic daily commute, a distinguished sense of community, minutes to excellent schools, and a nearby hotspot in Westboro and Wellington West. Bikepaths, cross-country skiing - close to home adventures have never been so accessible. Like a perfect fit that was made for you; this home will be hard to get out of your head once you feel its magic. Make an appointment and see it today!
