Visitors will delight in being greeted by a tall three-story exterior of off-white stucco, stone retaining walls, elevated curves, whimsical blue swath, and wealth of windows, trimmed in red and blue. A NCC walking path, surrounded by NCC grounds of landscaping, flowering shrubs and coniferous mature trees provides an ideal foreground to unobstructed canal views beyond. Professionally studied by its resident architect and owner for eight years, prior to renovations, plans were specifically intended to maximize natural light and priceless north, south and east seasonal scenes of both water and ice. The bold decision to expand the home by building vertically served to enhance the property's stately presence, visual sightlines, add space and create an incredible cloud tower, which simply must be seen. Light is further encouraged to shine through a two-story open well flowing between the home's kitchen and second floor office. A covered front porch leads into a foyer and main floor of light hardwood and walls of white. Repeating details such as mahogany mouldings, window frames, baseboards, and staircase elements add a cohesive look and feel. Historical touches such as leaded diamond patterned window grills and stained glass bring additional texture and subtle pops of beauty.
Invite guests for drinks by the fire while watching iceskaters whiz past a lengthy living room window. Across the hall, a sizable dining room waits for casual family dinners, meaningful celebrations or the quiet rustle of a morning paper. Be transported to a European bakery by stepping into a cheerful cook's kitchen featuring checked bistro floor tile in royal blue and white, white cabinetry, blue pearl granite countertops, pleasing appliances, open wire shelving and breakfast nook.
A grand staircase leads to a second floor presenting three bedrooms, or workspaces, and full bathroom with shower and pedestal sink. Be introduced to the many benefits of the Cloud Tower renovation by entering a dazzling front facing primary with large closets and sleeping space. A distinctive seating area boasts a dreamy 10.5-foot ceiling, corner windows, cross ventilation and all the sunlight needed to melt cares away. Climb further to discover the Cloud Tower's bespoke sculpted third-floor cathedral ceilings, walls of windows and endless possibilities. Levelled floors skillfully delineate this modern, open concept space into visually appealing zones. Pause to consider whether to create a tree-top gym, entertainment centre, guest space, hobby hub or invigorating office. Spacious closets and a full bathroom insist that choosing will not be necessary.
Further space is showcased by a tiled lower level with opportunity for a nanny suite, home office, recreation room, storage, guest or family space. A third four-piece bathroom brings a shower and tub with jets. Laundry becomes a breeze in a well-organized laundry room including sink, folding tables, drying tacks and cabinetry. A separate side-door entrance is lockable from the rest of the house. Pack up for travel with ease thanks to low maintenance gardens. Entertain on a red cedar deck, located on the south side of the house and park in two spots, one surface and one garage. Dare to imagine every attainable benefit of living in one of only 51 single family homes along the UNESCO World Heritage Rideau Canal, in the heart of the Ottawa's vibrant Glebe neighbourhood. Lace up and walk or run, from the front door, along kilometers of NCC maintained paths. Skate to the office on the world's longest skating rink, making sure to stop for a Beaver Tail and coffee. Walk to Parliament Hill, the Rideau Centre and commute to downtown Ottawa in minutes. Shop, exercise and see a movie at Lansdowne Park. Stroll Bank Street to find restaurants, cafes, boutiques, and amenities. Enjoy access to excellent nearby elementary and secondary schools, such as First Avenue Public School, Glebe Collegiate Institute and Lisgar Collegiate Institute. Close to CHEO and TOH Riverside, General and Civic Campuses. Make an appointment to visit today.
