Pause to envision mornings sitting to sip coffee and evenings chatting with friends stopping by. Through a front door, with transom window, waits a sunny tiled foyer and double coat closet. High ceilings and an open main floor beyond showcase a rare historic home, perfectly designed to meet the desires of spacious modern living. Hardwood floors accent a sensical pleasing flow and a generous number of windows welcome bright natural light to circulate freely throughout. Curl up, visit and read in an inspirational formal living room area, resting quietly off to the side. A stately original fireplace asks only for crackling fires in winter and bouquets of local flowers in spring. A nearby dining alcove has its own window and lots of room to gather for casual brunch or meaningful holidays. White crown mouldings and pristine trim pop against the warm neutral palette of a timeless traditional living space, looking forward to the arrival of celebratory crowds. Step onto stylish square tile to discover a gourmet kitchen, ready for work and fun. Roll out homemade pizza on a giant granite island, with seating and double sinks. Stainless 1 steel appliances are happy to cook and clean up while custom underlit cabinetry and lengthy sparkling countertops are ready to make tidying and storage easy and efficient. Warmer months extend the home's kitchen out through glass doors, to newly built and fenced-in back decks. Barbeque in a designated nook before joining conversation around the corner, in a private outdoor dining room reminiscent of a favourite Montreal restaurant. To catch the summer sunset, load up a big tray with treats and end the evening on a fabulous fourth-floor deck. Beautiful city views decorate a second outdoor dining space or perhaps future cushy lounge. Flowers or pots of vegetables will happily grow in either of these low-maintenance spaces. Sleep comes quickly when there is space for everyone to stretch out and dream. Original stairs, with a stylish runner, lead to a powder room and smartly placed laundry room. Down the hall, occupants of a secluded primary suite will surely relish in having an entire second floor to enjoy in peace. Pass a designer walk-in closet, of shelves, drawers, and multiple hanging rods, to a tranquil spa-style ensuite bathroom. Sink into deep jacuzzi soaker tub or prepare for the day ahead in a chic walk-in shower with rainforest system, tiled bench, and double vessel sinks. Guests, children, and teenagers will delight in having their very own floor above with a recently upgraded full bathroom built for sharing. Gleaming tile, bathtub including rainforest shower, organized cabinetry, double sinks, and lots of extra footage promise to make life's daily bustle, a bit more collegial. Two spacious bedrooms bring serene places to study, nap and gather with all the unique angles and details best provided by experienced older homes. A finished basement, easily accessed and monitored from the kitchen, makes for an ideal office, homework area, playroom, family room, or gym space. Storage closets for big and small items keep seasonal items dry and the main floor free of clutter. Leave the car behind and enjoy every treasure that urban living has to offer. Walk to excellent schools and the Canadian Museum of Nature. Carry skates only one block to jump on the Rideau Canal, or run, walk, and bike its scenic paths. Stroll minutes to local coffee shops, Loblaws, LCBO, and the delights of Landsdowne Park. Choose from the many delicious restaurants of nearby Elgin Street or the plentiful shops of Bank Street. Commuting is a breeze with easy access to the 417. Make an appointment to meet your dream home today! Offers to be presented at 3 pm Saturday, May 1, 2021.
