This gorgeous family home offers a unique proposition: a character home with new systems; spacious room sizes; lots of light and manicured gardens. Situated in the Old Village of Rockcliffe Park, this handsome home is well set back from the street via a circular driveway. The front hedge gives way to a pedestrian gate that leads to the flagstone walkway. Set on a treed and meticulously landscaped 16,436 (+/-) square foot lot, this significant, completely renovated home is stunning.
The fabulous main floor layout offers 9-foot ceilings, hardwood floors and plenty of light via the new windows, installed in 2022. Beautiful French doors with custom beveled glass lead into the foyer from the vestibule. The foyer is flanked by the living and dining rooms. The living room has an oversized gas fireplace and spectacular deep bay window. The spacious dining room enjoys French door access to a front terrace, as well as a decorative fireplace. The fabulous all-white kitchen has beautiful cabinetry, a feature window with a banquette seat and a breakfast room that offers direct access to the backyard. The kitchen is open to the family room, which also accesses the back terrace. Full of light, these rooms are as functional as they are beautiful. Also on the main floor is a gorgeous powder room with a pedestal sink, and a generous-sized mudroom off the side entrance. The mudroom offers a direct staircase to a private second floor bedroom suite, allowing for multi-generational living and family privacy.
The second floor offers four spacious bedrooms. The primary bedroom is huge and has a sensational ensuite bathroom with a soaking tub, two sinks, granite counters and a large glass shower and glass door access to a private water closet. The second bedroom also offers its own suite, with a lovely ensuite bathroom and treed views. This is the bedroom that has its own direct access to the mudroom via its own private staircase. It can also be accessed via the second floor.
There are two additional well-sized bedrooms on the second floor, as well as a third elegant full bathroom. Also on this level, the conveniently-located laundry room has plenty of natural light.
The entire third floor is occupied by a spacious and wonderful second family room. With two deep reading banquettes set into pretty dormer windows, this room is a dream.
The basement was renovated in 2020 and features a fitness room, large storage space and a great full bathroom. The basement also accesses the garage. This home is rare in that looks onto parkland at the front of house and enjoys late day western sunlight that filters into the living, dining and family rooms in the afternoon. It is set back nicely from the Parkway by a bike trail, National Capital Commission (NCC) parkland and a roadway. One can bike right out the driveway and be on the Rideau River Pathway within seconds - allowing for easy travel to downtown Ottawa and beyond, as well as the east end!
The home is as exquisite outside as it is inside. Beautiful terracing across two levels is bordered by a sophisticated stone wall. There is lots of greenspace as well. This extraordinary offering is a rare Rockcliffe Park dream.
