Warm and Welcoming

In Ottawa's sought-after Golden Triangle area. With approx. 2898 sq. ft across 3 floors with south facing light gracing many of the rooms. The house marries some modern touches with the traditional features.

Good bones and lots of updating has been done though the years- Make this one yours and put your style and taste to work.  


The front terrace is characterised by a typically Victorian façade of columns, cornice work and decorative motifs. Handsome soldiering in the brickwork around the second-floor windows speak to the original quality of the home. The architectural wrought iron adds to the allure of the exterior.

 Main Floor:

Open the door to a wonderful entrance hall and foyer that invites you into the main floor rooms. The rooms are accented with a fireplace, high ceilings and full-height windows framed by original trim. Wood floors and high baseboards all add to the feeling of grandness.

The entrance Foyer and main living room have an exquisite original staircase as a backdrop. room. French doors open to the formal sized dining room.

At the rear is the kitchen that was completely redone. Custom built wood "furniture" style cabinetry offering an abundance of storage space while the Prep Island carries through the design all accented by gleaming marble countertops. A large eating bay with built in banquet seating (storage underneath) is nestled in a large bay window that overlooks the garden and custom playhouse. This is a kitchen for entertaining and family enjoyment. Design and workmanship were carefully considered by the owners to create a sense of richness and warmth. The saying "hard to get people out of the kitchen" rings true in this space.

There is a convenient main floor powder room and a rear porch ideal for sports equipment and garden supplies.

Second Floor

The second floor provides a large landing that houses a walk-in closet. Turned open hallway accesses the two sun filled bedrooms.

A recently redone bathroom lies at the rear of the hallway with marble tile flooring - a large vanity with double sinks and a large tub/shower.

The rear bedroom that is presently used as the master opens to a large sunny room that is ideal as an office or as a sitting room/den.

Third Floor:

Accented with high ceilings and new hardwood flooring. Large windows frame the far-reaching views across the treetops and rooftops. The main room is oversized while the rear office space has been assembled with a work / office area as well as space for sitting. Door to the flat roof is ideal for that terrace in the future.

Yard and Driveway: The yard is an excellent size for a urban home and provides space for entertaining /gardening or just letting the kids enjoy a custom treehouse/playhouse. Private Driveway.

The Hood:

Lots of choice for the foodie from classic Farm Boy to the farmer’s market. Easy access to other communities that include Byward Market and the Glebe as well as Arts and galleries all nearby.

Walk score 98.

If you are looking for a great food - walk down to Elgin  St and enjoy the such resturants as  WHALESBONE or fine dining at  BECKTA and the  RIVIERA.  To get the great new experience head south on Elgin to  GITANES ( best burgers in town and they deliver!!!) or Datsun , El Camino ,  and the list goes on. One of our fav's is  PURE KITCHEN - great staff and wonderful food and juice's. Don't forget coffees and a scone or light lunch at the  SCONE WITCH .  or breakfast at Elgin St dinner or the Manz Pub. Churches ,arts and culture at the NAC, art galleries, flowers shops, clothing boutiques, a perfect book store HTTP://PERFECTBOOKS.CA/ , pharmacy, cafes and coffee shops line the newly redone Elgin St. S0 much to enjoy it is hard to know where to begin.

For those that use public transportation to and from work,  OC TRANSPO is close at hand or over the walking bridge to the LRT that will bring you right to the Train Station.  Great bike lanes but of course so close you can walk everywhere and enjoy biking on the Canal after work.
