With the Rideau River, Strathcona Park, and the University of Ottawa nearby, outdoor adventures and cultural experiences are never far away.

Once you have savored the rich historic allure of your surroundings, step through the classic landscaping of the private front yard into a world of timeless elegance. From the moment you enter the foyer, prepare to be captivated by the seemingly boundless expanse of space that belies the understated exterior. Meticulously renovated to perfection, the interior boasts opulent hardwood floors that span the entirety of the home, setting the stage for an atmosphere of refined luxury.

The heart of the residence lies in its expansive gourmet kitchen, a culinary masterpiece designed to delight even the most discerning of chefs. Boasting dual sinks and an abundance of custom, backlit wood cabinetry, the kitchen offers unparalleled functionality and style. Sun-drenched windows bathe the space in natural light, creating a captivating ambiance reminiscent of a high-end culinary magazine spread. Equipped with a gas range with hood, this culinary haven seamlessly transitions to the outdoors, where a fully finished backyard oasis awaits. Complete with built-in shelves, a cozy seating area, and hidden storage solutions for everyday essentials, the kitchen is a dream come true for those who appreciate both form and function.

Adjacent to the kitchen, the open-concept living and dining area beckons with its airy, expansive layout and endless entertainment possibilities. Whether envisioning an elegant grand piano poised upon a raised platform or a cozy sectional nestled for family game nights, the space is infinitely customizable to suit any occasion or mood. The main level of the home further impresses with a sunlit family room overlooking serene views of the meticulously landscaped backyard. Two great sized bedrooms or office space and a charming European-inspired bathroom, adorned with checkered tiles and an elegant console sink, exudes old-world charm. Situated on the main level, these comforting amenities also allow for practical accessibility, perfect for visiting relatives. Ascend the grand staircase to discover the enchanting second level, with its high luxury feel. The expansive primary bedroom, complete with a walk-in custom closet system, boasts a lavish ensuite bathroom that rivals the finest five-star resorts. Featuring a sumptuous jacuzzi soaker bath, glass-walled rainfall shower, and double sinks, this opulent oasis is designed for indulgence and relaxation. As you explore further, you

catch a glimmer of light enticing you towards the back of the room, where a hidden solarium awaits, neatly tucked away with its 'treehouse escape' vibe, offering a secluded sanctuary where one can bask in the warmth of the sun and savor panoramic views of the private upper deck.

In addition to the primary bedroom, the upper level of the home offers three generously proportioned bedrooms, each adorned with ample closet space and sun-drenched windows that frame picturesque views of the sprawling backyard oasis. Mirroring the main level, a linen closet and full bathroom complete the upper-level accommodations, ensuring both comfort and convenience for residents and guests alike.

Stepping outside from either the upper level or through the kitchen, the meticulously landscaped backyard beckons with its enchanting blend of lush greenery, pretty evergreens, elegant stone accents, and tranquil courtyard ambiance. A spacious deck, replete with built-in seating and bordered by boulders, provides the perfect setting for alfresco dining or soirées under the stars.

Meanwhile, a separate entrance leads to a private backyard for the lower level of the home, a self-contained second unit dwelling. The uniqueness of exposed brick, deep pantry storage, and an original 1940s bathroom showcase the rich history and character to be found. Featuring two expansive bedrooms, a generous kitchen, and a versatile recreation area, this lower level offers endless possibilities: an in-law suite, multi- generational home, or recreation space – your options are limitless.

In every exquisite detail, from the soaring ceilings and sunlit interiors to the meticulously landscaped grounds and thoughtfully designed living spaces, 40 Marlborough is the epitome of charm, character, and stately living, right in the heart of the city.
