Property descriptionUncompromising design, unparalleled sense of style. This home is unlike any other property ever to have come to the market in Ottawa. Its iconic vantage point over The Rideau Canal and Dow's Lake, incredible use of space and design and unique interpretation of the outdoors make it a true masterpiece property.
The home was built excellently to commercial construction standards. The exterior wood cladding has been designed with a highly resistant PVDF counter layer to make it maintenance free. It is punctuated by sleek panels of durable glassfibre-reinforced concrete. The home is not just well-built, but also Smart, featuring a Creston home automation system that controls the lighting, Sonos music system, window treatments, cameras and climate. An elevator provides access to all floors, from the garage to the rooftop terrace.
The property has a secure gated pedestrian entrance that opens into the interior courtyard with sand-blasted stone and glass railings. Enter through the dramatic, oversized pivotal glass front door into a large foyer. The radiant-heated floors throughout are composed of concrete that has been polished to perfection and all the interior doors have unobtrusive hinge systems. The absence of mouldings throughout the home creates a contemporary, clean finish.
The main floor is open concept with a fabulous layout for entertaining and living. The living room features a wood-burning Rumford fireplace with a raised slate hearth and beautiful walnut ceiling panels with recessed lighting that are echoed throughout. The double-height dining area features dramatic black-framed windows and a NanaWall that opens completely to the terrace. This allows the entire wall to seem to disappear, blurring the lines between interior and exterior living spaces. The terrace is bordered by a glass railing that allows for optimal enjoyment of the view. The kitchen is ultra high-end, featuring matte black FENIX counters, a Gaggenau induction cooktop, a matte black refrigerator, black Miele cappuccino/espresso machine (specially ordered from the U.S.), a drinks refrigerator and a wood-fired pizza oven, among other incredible details. The kitchen drawers have a seamless finish, opening electronically. With handle-free cabinetry and a muted black-and wood colour scheme, the kitchen's sight-lines are breathtaking. The fabulous walnut-paneled media room features warm elements contrasted by a sophisticated exposed concrete wall with a gas fireplace. The main floor also has a fitness room with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking The Rideau Canal. There is also a walk-in closet and a powder room on this floor.
The second floor primary suite is a superb retreat with stunning views. The spacious bedroom has its gas fireplace and private balcony looking directly over the Canal. A huge walk-in closet features amazing custom built-ins and the exquisite ensuite bathroom boasts two sinks, a large glass shower and a water closet as well as ample built-ins for storing linens. The juxtaposition between the white marble walls and the dark polished concrete floors in this bathroom is almost poetic. A window has been elegantly positioned to allow for light and treetop views while retaining complete privacy.
The second floor is home to two additional spacious bedrooms and another full bathroom, as well as the laundry room.
The third floor is taken up by the exquisite rooftop terrace, which has unbelievable panoramic views of The Canal, Dow's Lake and The Arboretum beyond. The terrace is bordered by a glass railing surrounded on its outer boundary by pebbles. This provides privacy, as the terrace does not extend to the very edges of the roof. The glass railing allows for safety and unobstructed views. The rooftop has an outdoor kitchen with a fantastic Le Panyol, copper-clad pizza oven and a barbecue. It also has deck areas and low-maintenance artificial grass areas, perfect for lounging and outdoor dining.
The lower level is the perfect place to store your toys. Featuring a spacious mudroom with tons of storage, two storage rooms, a mechanical room and an oversized and gorgeous garage with a concrete floor and glass-paned garage door. The garage accommodates four cars and has a workshop area.
This exquisite contemporary masterpiece has been curated to allow for luxe and convenient living. Live in one of Canada's most iconic addresses, with unrivalled views of The Rideau Canal!
