Front lawns, driveway, and landscaping ground a warm exterior coat of buttery yellow wood siding, elegant shutters, and white-trimmed peaked windows. Respected for its custom-built heritage, lovingly maintained, and renovated for modern life this happy property offers everything needed for a meaningful new chapter.

Welcome visitors into an elegant, tiled foyer, and shuttle backpacks, muddy puppies and sports equipment through a large mudroom complete with shelving and laundry machines. Another enviable side entrance, and tiled nook, is perfect for carrying groceries straight to the kitchen and storing supplies plus larger items when entertaining.

This home introduces beautiful hardwood, numerous bright windows, natural daylight, recessed lighting, space-defining fixtures, built-in sound, wealth of upgrades and neutral paint palette.

Create a spacious living room around a stately working gas fireplace, with marvelous white framing and mantle, brass insert and mirror. French doors opening to the backyard extend the space further, inviting light, fresh air and mingling of guests.

Prepare for joyful hours spent in a sunny eat-in kitchen full of style and designed for function. Rich cherrywood cabinetry, including drawers, shelving, glass-front doors, and high-end hardware compliment a white tiled backsplash, lighter wood floors and curved expanse of ecru countertops. A double sink and coffee nook add to a long list of efficiencies offered by this cheerful, bustling hub.

Gaze out an oversize window as it both draws in the best light of the day and frames seasonal Canadian views of flowers, fall leaves, fresh snow, and the beginnings of spring. Double French doors lead out to a large west facing cedar deck overlooking a fully fenced-in sprawling backyard of landscaped gardens, mature trees, green space, flagstone patio, sprinkler system and sightlines straight to the grounds of Rideau Hall.

An adjacent study, with a feature bay window, is the ideal spot for supervised homework, toddlers at play or taking meetings from home.

Down a short hallway, a separate and central dining room with two doors, suggests nights of elegant dining or Sunday casual brunch. Crown molding and an architecturally pleasing arched alcove is well suited to an exquisite bar, sparking glass collection or visual feast of treasures.

Freshen up using the chic vessel sink of a secluded powder room, tucked just around the corner.

Enjoy second floor access to four bedrooms, with a choice of two staircases. A delightful and unexpected kitchen flight leads to the private wing of a nanny suite, teenage oasis, or guest area complete with two bedrooms, presenting organized closet space and shelving, full bathroom, cedar lined closet and private hallway. Turn the corner to find an enviable laundry chute.

Climb a main flight of stairs, dressed in handsome white and deep wood tones, past formal wall paneling, to a spacious second floor landing, or library, and charming front-facing bedroom. A family-friendly layout ensures that everyone feels close with plenty of personal space to work, rest and restore in comfort.

To the right, a large primary bedroom showcases angled ceilings, hardwood floors and stylish paneled closets. An ensuite bathroom, smartly separated by an enclosed shaving or cosmetic sink, includes a glass shower stall and dreamy soaking tub, located, thanks to California-style skylights, quite literally under the stars.

Stretch out in a bright, finished basement, featuring recreation or entertainment room, and set up a workout space to exercise at home. A workshop, utility room, with laundry sink, and storage space make organization, seasonal rotations of décor and home management so much easier.

Park in a beloved detached single car garage and set a monitored security system before walking to the dog park. Greet new friends on the way to some of Ottawa's best public and private schools. Run, bike, or stroll paved paths along the Ottawa River. Playgrounds, community centres, tennis clubs, rinks and a local library minimize the rush of family outings. Drive minutes to downtown Ottawa or the Byward Market. Explore the shops, restaurants, cafes, and many amenities of Beechwood Village. Make an appointment to visit today.
