With the private banks of the Pond to one side and the prestige of an unparalleled community to the other, the tranquil enclave of Bittern/Whitemarl affords an undeniably singular existence in Rockcliffe Park. While maintenance-free manicured grounds are dressed to impress on approach, sophisticated finishes, classic esthetic, and elegant touches await inside.
The vestibule's glossy black granite welcomes with panache; french doors open into the foyer where dark hardwood underfoot and a smart design leaves ceilings high, doorways wide, and baseboards oversized for visual substance. A turn reveals the living room, the wood-burning fireplace maintaining a focal point, its crisp white surround and classic millwork lends a bright, contemporary vibe. Find a first introduction to trademark tray ceilings – added height, architectural interest, and undeniable sophistication the fabulous results. With the condo's sightline set high, corner windows look out to the private grounds of Bittern/Whitemarl. The fully screened corner sunroom is amply set to accommodate cocktails with guests or a hint of solitude with a good book – a flawless manner to relish three seasons in the capital.
The family room lies adjacent with full windows paned for a transom effect. Natural light flows, as does a crowd, flowing through a French door into the kitchen seamlessly. In the kitchen, finishes catch the eye from start to finish – granite countertops and corresponding floor tile boast rich colouring and grain; mirrored backsplash extends space with visual interest. Dark cherry-hued cabinetry houses a true cook's collection. Open space allows room for chef and guests to flow through the space – when entertaining invariably finds guests in the kitchen, know they won't be underfoot and in the way. Find the eat-in kitchen footprint generous enough for a large table, with nearby window maximizing sunlight.
Through to the dining room, where understated elegance and oversized dining space are the themes of the day. The dining table will rule the room, but it's pot lighting showcasing artwork – not exclusive to this room – tray ceiling elevating chandelier to epic proportions, and open views of the entryway vestibule that makes dining truly exceptional.
Down the hallway, find living quarters contained – know you'll sacrifice nothing in the quest for single-floor living in distinction. Hallway laundry lies near the main bathroom in clever placement, the second bedroom beyond. Look through California-style shutters to terrace plantings and flagstone beyond; a ground level orientation grants shaded privacy and an organic quality to the view. The master suite's windowed wall consciously allows the same vantage – awake to a truly lovely scene. Double doors open into the dressing room, where fully mirrored closets and vanity sconces team up to create a dressing room ambience. An on-trend sink lies in a gleaming hardwood vanity, reading more as furniture than plumbing. The result is an intimate, soft vibe pairing impeccably with the luxurious ensuite bathroom that lies through glass pocket doors. Trend-savvy grey tile provides a warm welcome, but the walk-in shower remains the show-stealer with an invisible drain providing visual continuity. A rainshower head and barn-style glass enclosure signify everything 21st century-cool in bathroom design.
Basement function couldn't be more on point – a third bedroom doubles as serviceable storage space, a dumbwaiter transports provisions from car to kitchen in seconds, and a tandem two-car garage and third driveway parking space allows room for both residents and guests. With landscaping, snow removal and water bills extraneous, find time for more gratifying pursuits. Walk the winding wooded streets and know the Rockcliffe Park existence is one of influential neighbours, unmatched community, and incomparable pride of place. Make it home today!
