Rideau Hall, the home of the Governor General is across the street— while international embassies surround. Scenic pathways lead to local cafés, restaurants, and boutiques. With proximity to top notch schools, Global Affairs, and the city's business hub, your daily commute is enhanced by tree-lined streets, rivers, and nearby ponds. Outdoor enthusiasts applaud proximity to parks, bike trails, and nearby hikes while a short drive takes you to Gatineau Park — the ultimate playground for nature lovers.

Originally built by the award-winning Michael Valiquette for his own family, a special kind of love has gone into the crafting of this home. Natural stones lead you through a red-brick covered entryway. Within, the marble-clad foyer includes a spacious closet and powder room. An open kitchen, living, and dining room form a most-perfect circle around the staircase, inviting guests to mingle with ease.

Cook from a generous eat-in kitchen with a black granite island double sink, sleek appliances, floor to ceiling cupboards and under-cabinet lighting. A nearby laundry room with additional shelving solves practical needs. An etheric filtered light emanates from the dining room: a closer look reveals one of three half-moon stained glass windows found throughout the home — all saved from the old Laurier Theatre in Hull, demolished in 1963. Spacious windows and patio doors line the East side of the home, letting in tonnes of natural light along with views of the private courtyard. Outside, colourful perennials and verdant shrubs meet climbing vines forming an oasis for casual entertaining. In colder months, reap dividends from a bright sunroom with elegant crown molding that delivers vitamin D all year round. A sizable living room with a fireplace and built-in shelves makes a comfortable place to gather with family and friends or relax with a book.

The remaining two stained glass windows sit atop an art deco staircase. Soaring vaulted ceilings define luxury on the second level. Retreat to a spacious primary suite with a juliette balcony, walk-in closet and en-suite crafted of marble. Two additional bedrooms with spacious closets are illuminated by natural light — ideal for kids or guests. Work or read in a nearby private office with a view of the courtyard. A skylight brightens a spacious primary four-piece bathroom and a nearby linen closet. Indoor parking in a garage with a woodworking bench is ideal for projects of any size. A nearby storage shed makes it easy to access extra chairs or seasonal items. Guests can park in a double driveway at the entrance — a rare but welcome convenience for Mackay Street.

Live in a home built for those with an appreciation for art, design, history, and who love a good story to tell guests. Growing families thrive here while guests have an unforgettable experience. This unique opportunity to make new memories among a stunning landscape in one of the city's most beautiful neighbourhoods awaits. Morning strolls along the Rideau Hall gardens, weekends spent cycling to the Byward Market or visiting the National Gallery. Walk to prestigious schools and parks. Cycle along the river to the city's business hub, downtown galleries and boutiques. Hiking, kayaking, boating, and skiing are a short drive away. It's a must-see, book a viewing today!
