Exquisite Blend of Design & Style!!

A home to be seen, built in the mid to late 1800s, the house has been restored using an exceptionally high standard of finishes throughout. Incredible detailing. A blend of modern and heritage artfully refined make this home a showplace as well as comfortable. Traditional grand rooms that in some cases have been opened creating a nice flow of sun filled spaces that reflect a truly modern approach to today's living. The main internal space is over 3568 sq. feet spanning three storeys plus a large  lower basement level  (1000 square feet) which has high ceilings and is partly finished.

This exceptionally elegant home is located in Ottawa in the heart of the Centertown area within minutes to several shopping and restaurant districts.  Excellent access to the expansive walking cycling  routes throughout Ottawa,  the LRT. The highly regarded international music festivals are held across the street in the beautiful church owned by the University Music and Arts department.

Subject to a complete renovation and restoration, the interior is finished to exacting standards, using high-quality materials with attention to impressive detailing and sophisticated design.

Calling attention to the impressive proportions, a wood staircase forms an architectural thread turning gently to connect each floor. The main entrance foyer has a marble floor and impressive entrance doors as well as an exquisite matching chandelier and wall sconce.

The Living room offers  refined space replete with original features such as high ceilings with detailed trim work and an ornate iron fireplace.  Modern Restoration Hardware lighting brings a sense of drama to the room.

Further down the hall past the powder room is the large open concept kitchen and dining room,  arguably the most impressive space in the house. The space has been thoughtfully designed, transitioning with ease from daily use to entertaining. The gourmet kitchen has floor to ceiling cabinetry and a 10 foot long Island that provides exceptional space for all to enjoy and gather. Accented with Carrara marble yet designed with a calming colour palette that makes the rooms warm and inviting.

Continuing the cabinetry into the dining room there is a full wall of cabinets and book cases (one cleverly hides the butlers stairs). The private courtyard like terrace and deck is positioned right off the dining room, perfect space for morning coffee or summer dining.

The second floor is given over mostly to the sun filled principal bedroom suite with bespoke walk through dressing room and the exquisite, in both quality and design, en-suite bathroom.

The rest of the second floor has a family room with vaulted ceiling and is accessed by the butlers stairs as well as the main staircase. The 2nd bedroom on this floor is generous enough to provide a reading or additional use area. The main bathroom is stylish, sophisticated, and modern.

The third level has 2 generously proportioned bedrooms that could easily accommodate home offices or yoga studio. Lovely natural light and pretty window seating in the alcoves, between the two rooms runs the secret passage! The bathroom is right out of Paris designer magazine- with the use of the floor to ceiling tile, and the metal and marble vanity speak to a luxurious but stylish lifestyle.

Tasteful, elegant and comfortable. So many features – it is a home that truly must be seen!
