SOLD 259 Clemow Avenue

The Glebe | Ottawa


Charming Clemow Ave.

Occupying a sought-after position, this handsome early 1900's Tudor Revival home is only a few minutes walk from parkland and all of the Glebe's amenities. 


This 7-bedroom home is located on a picturesque block in the Glebe neighborhood, known for its beautiful homes. The street is lined with double boulevards and sidewalks, and the houses are set back from the road, creating an attractive and spacious setting.

The house itself retains its original and spacious layout, showcasing its historical charm. Wooden floors, original wood trim, and leaded glass windows add to the character of the home. The property boasts a large garden surrounding the house, featuring perennial flower beds and landscaping. In addition, there is a saltwater pool in the backyard and a spacious side lot. Rare for mature neighborhoods, the property also offers a private laneway with a double car garage and carport.

Upon entering the house, you'll be greeted by a reception hallway and foyer that exude heritage. To the right, there is a den or office with original wood leaded glass bookcases. To the right of the main hallway, French doors lead to a formal-sized living room, which connects to the dining room. The living room features a large bay window that brings in natural light and offers views of the front garden and the sidewalk boulevard. A gas fireplace adds warmth to the space, and paned glass windows create a bright and welcoming atmosphere.

The dining room is elegantly appointed with leaded glass door display cabinets and tall wood wainscoting. A butler's door provides access to the kitchen, while a large window overlooks the rear garden.

The bright and spacious kitchen is located at the back of the house. It features an oversized picture window with views of the side yard, and a large eating island, perfect for casual family meals. Adjacent to the kitchen is a windowed screened summer porch or garden room with a decorative fireplace, offering a charming space to enjoy the garden and pool area.

An exquisite original wood staircase with six large leaded glass windows leads to the second floor. Here, you'll find four bedrooms and a full bathroom, as well as the principal bedroom with a 3-piece ensuite bathroom. All bedrooms on this level have original maple floorboards, high ceilings, and good closet space. The principal bedroom also boasts a wood-burning fireplace, although it is presently not in use.

The third floor is accessed via another set of stairs and features three more spacious bedrooms. These rooms have softwood floors and dormered alcoves, with high ceilings maintained throughout. There is a 4-piece bathroom on this floor, which, while older, provides ample space. This floor can be used to create a complete principal suite or can be left for the kids to personalize.

The outdoor space of the property is a highlight, with the house set back from the street, offering a sense of privacy. A large front garden can be enjoyed from the "sitting" porch, which showcases the heritage design of the home and provides an ideal spot for outdoor drinks or relaxation. The garden and yard receive sun from the east, south, and west, allowing for a variety of plants to flourish. The pool, located at the rear of the house, offers a secluded environment for summer enjoyment, whether from around the pool or from the large screened sunporch off the kitchen.
