Park in the wide driveway of an enviable three car garage and take in a stunning exterior of beautiful stone and complimentary neutral tones. Tall windows, smooth curves, regal peaks, and a front-facing second floor balcony, illustrate careful architectural planning and a passion for design. Landscaped beds, blooming flowers, greenspace and mature trees add further texture and vibrancy to an already ideal canvas.

Open a glass front door, surrounded by windows, to enter a grand two-story foyer of tile, double coat closet, high ceilings, valuable fixtures and bright natural light. Notice the timeless appeal of a traditional floorplan, elevated further by an open and airy flow. Rich hardwood, casement windows and serene tones of almond, white, cream, and biscotti make for a move-in ready home, ready to showcase and enhance personal choices in both furniture and décor.

To the right, a handsome home office, with wainscoting and coffered ceilings, is perfectly positioned for onsite meetings or quiet contemplation.

Across the hall, a cherished living room presents its own oversized front window, coffered ceilings, crown mouldings and ample square footage for holiday celebrations and regular family gatherings.

Towards the back of the house, a well-defined kitchen, dining area and family room, with gas fireplace, enjoys connection, function and tranquil backyard views. An exquisite glass door, trimmed in black iron, opens to a dreamy enclosed oasis featuring landscaped beds, a seasonal rotation of plants and flowers, lawns, covered patio, hot-tub, water features, heater, and gourmet barbeque.

Prepare and cook daily meals in a custom kitchen of glass and wood front cabinetry, artistic backsplash, walk-in pantry, coffee-coloured granite countertops, island, pendant lamps, bay window, high-end stainless-steel appliances and double sink. Custom built-ins, such as a granite-topped table and workstation, assist with the multi-tasking requirements of both morning and late afternoon. A nearby powder room and interior garage door promise to keep everyone and everything clean, dry, and on-track.

Ascend a flight of hardwood stairs, with premium iron balusters, to a sun-filled landing, outdoor balcony access, and scenic views of the Rideau River. A youthful wing appreciates two large bedrooms, walk-in closets, and shared connection to a full bathroom with both tub and shower. Arguments will have no room thanks to two individual sink stations, extra cabinetry, and the privacy afforded by smart pocket doors.

Down an adjacent hall waits a restful guest room, or second home office, with its own full ensuite bathroom, including tub. A well-organized and desirable upstairs laundry room, including checkered tile, full-size refrigerator and microwave, offers late night room service to residents and guests of every age.

Steps further reveal a sequestered and luxurious primary suite boasting sitting area, walk-in closet and wonderful windows. Rejuvenate and restore in a spa-style ensuite including soothing tile, corner jacuzzi-style tub, and glass shower stall with shampoo nook. Privacy is respected with a thoughtful enclosed water closet, featuring both toilet and bidet.

When it is time to play, watch movies, or host a group of friends, a wonderful finished lower level, with two staircases, storage and full bathroom, is built to impress. A second gas fireplace takes centre stage in a relaxing entertainment room including its own stylish kitchen and bar. A roomy bedroom, with mirrored closets, will happily transform into a yoga studio or home gym. Consider whether this independently functioning floor might be an ideal suite for either a live-in nanny, adult student, or aging relatives.

Get excited for a new chapter in a forever home with room to grow up and return with more. Meet friendly neighbours and pets on the way to local elementary and high schools. Visit nearby parks, Prince of Wales Falls and Mooney's Bay Beach. Indulge at local coffee shops, restaurants and the stores and shops of Merivale Road. A central location ensures a short and scenic commute to downtown Ottawa and the MacDonald-Cartier Airport.
