Landscaped perennial beds, intending a garden for every season, create eager anticipation for the next bounty of colourful and fragrant blooms. Drive into a semi-circular driveway, with comfortable parking for four vehicles, or park in a convenient second driveway. Marvel at a stately exterior of brick, sandstone stucco, wood trim and meaningful details. Notice how contemporary windows have been carefully designed to respect the home's original look and feel. Ascend curving stone steps to enter through a regal front door. An airy tiled foyer introduces natural light, gleaming hardwood, tile, high ceilings, arched doorways, complimentary neutral tones and ample supply of windows. Regular upgrades and meticulous maintenance have made for a move-in ready house, eagerly anticipating preferred furnishings, choice of décor, and personal touches. A wonderful flow and spacious layout understand the requirements of modern living and support wishes for parties to remember. The warm presence of welcoming and positive energy has been enjoyed and cherished by generations of both residents and guests. To the left, a traditional dining room is perfectly suited to large celebrations, quiet toasts and Sunday brunch. Serve dessert across the hallway in a elegant living room lit by daily sunlight and the evening glow of a central gas fireplace. Around the corner, discover a convenient full bathroom and handsome library or home office. Steps further reveal the delightful surprise of a large all-season sunroom, with glass patio doors out to the side garden. Gaze through the three-panelled windows, above the oversized sink of a smart European-style kitchen, into a quiet backyard of flowers, seasonal plants and flagstone. Fresh flooring, granite countertops, creamy custom cabinetry, with attractive hardware, and freestanding breakfast bar create a serene space for cooking, baking and sharing tea. Pristine white appliances are secure blending in while a sleek wine fridge waits to offer an expanded list of beverages. Fill a tray to nibble or dine on a large deck and lower patios, just through the back door to gracious gardens with an attractive pond feature. Take elegant turning stairs, past windows, to a large second level of four bedrooms, a full bathroom plus a den. Thoughtful planning illustrates endless possibilities for configurations and usage throughout the years. An elegant primary bedroom is a sanctuary with closet space for two, a cozy gas fireplace and plenty of room for a seating area for lounging. Soak all cares away in the freestanding tub of a full bathroom with shower and white subway tile. A lucky teenager, overnight guests, or live-in nanny will adore the seclusion of a third-floor suite featuring skylights, a built-in day bed, and third full bathroom. Further ease, efficiency and joy is added by a rare second staircase, leading all the way from the back hallway up to the third level. Bring your visions to life in a bright finished lower level with windows and recessed lighting. Set up a recreation and entertainment space suited to every age or organize the ultimate playroom for rainy or winter days. A separate room easily becomes an ideal home gym or yoga studio. Laundry, a cold room, tool shop and plenty of storage closets and cupboards complete this fun and functional lower level. Enjoy a quality of life without parallel within a block of some of Ottawa's finest private and public schools and the local library. Stroll past gorgeous surrounding properties to discover parks, for both people and pets, paved paths and cross-country trails or to the neighbourhood tennis, sailing or fitness clubs. Wave hello to friendly faces on the way to the local tennis club or one of several proximate fitness studios. Tour past famed 24 Sussex Drive, for a straight trip downtown and to the Byward Market.
