Property for Sale

Backing onto privately owned forested land, 9 Oriole offers a stand out vantage amongst its peers. A quiet street with little traffic yields kid-friendly outdoor adventures, while the nearby Ottawa River, parks and bike paths make pet-ownership and weekend leisure a true joy. On approach, cascading steps create a visual break to the walled garden and culminate in a warm solid wood door. Classic bungalow style holds sway: a hipped roofline and brick facade pay homage to the mid century heritage of this home. Appreciate that a perfect foundation has been laid for you to take this dwelling to the next level and make it your own. Over the threshold, a discreet entrance and main hall layout yield an effortless and intelligent layout: sleeping quarters to the left, social and shared living spaces to the right. Explore the heart of home first - hardwood at your feet is inviting. A functional wood-burning fireplace holds court in the bright living room, while the adjacent dining room is easily accessible via the kitchen and main hall. Easy flow, plenty of entertaining potential: the possibilities are endless. Continue through to a family focal point: a sweeping sunroom with generous proportions promises fond memories. A bank of windows extends around two corners and puts on a show: you get a front row seat to the dynamic natural tableau of Ottawa's ever changing seasons. You may even catch a glimpse of the local wildlife! Extend the space during summer months through patio doors that lead to a recently updated outdoor patio - interlock stone and a raised wall add an air of refinement to every alfresco gathering. Back inside, a 2023 must have: a beautiful dedicated home office with clerestory windows sits off the family room - secluded enough for a productive work day, but still part of the action. A four piece main bath and kitchen round out sociable spaces. The kitchen is perfectly poised for expansion - a window overlooking the backyard means you can keep an eye on post-school play while prepping dinner. Down the other side of the main hall, three bedrooms offer plenty of room and storage for occupants - not to mention tranquil forested or street-side views. A second four piece bath accommodates pragmatic household needs. With such flexible spaces and impeccable maintenance, marvel how family-friendly practicalities and entertaining-ready proportions collide seamlessly. The lower level boasts an ample footprint worth exploring and developing into your wildest design dreams. On your way down, note the side door landing which makes comings and goings to the backyard a breeze. Waking up early to let the dog out just got easier. High ceilings and an open plan to your left leave plenty of opportunity to get creative ideas flowing. Home gym? Artists studio? Currently, find laundry, a work room complete with workbench, garage access, and plenty of storage. Beyond, a rec room, games room and bedroom share a glimpse of convivial spaces that could be: a home theater, room for an autonomous child attending university, leisure spaces - make it your own.
