It takes more than success to say "yes" to excess. Calling this deliciously indulgent 24th floor Byward Market penthouse 'home' will undoubtably require a significant measure of confident self-assurance. Got it? Why be shy about achieving life at the top?
This opulent condo home, high in the totally private skies of the Byward Market delivers the best of both public and private worlds. Inside, a sumptuous Roman Villa for two comes wrapped in vast gravity-defying panoramic views. In the blink of an eye the elevator whisks you to walk-everywhere access to Ottawa's entertainment and cultural hub.
Stepping into this worlds-apart home you enter a reception area unlike any other in the city. Beneath your feet patterned stone mosaic apparently lifted from a classical-era villa (in fact it's replica, custom crafted in Turkey). There is discrete reception closet by the door and larger coat receiving area tucked round the corner – perfect for entertaining.
A total redesign of the original floor plan eliminated out-of-date rooms to create a large sitting lounge – great for receiving guests and everyday kicking back. Hardwood floors, cast stone pillars, built in mahogany shelves and a re-fabricated antique ethanol hearth, recall exotic vacation destinations. A nearby bathroom blends timeless Carrera marble floors with the distinction of a Mediterranean inspired marble mosaic. Swarovski crystal faucet handles and chandelier add elegance. Notice the antique leaded glass transom window.
Eventually you may get used to the awesome, ever changing views defining your living room experience here. Guests won't. Expect them to be even more view-fixated in summer when your wide outdoor deck is irresistible.
Changes to the floor plan added space to an already impressive living room. Result? A grand piano sits unobtrusively in an alcove, ready for an impromptu concert. In this home, anything can happen. At the other end of the living room is a sumptuous Egyptian Marble decorative hearth hand-crafted in Italy. Filled with candles it's beyond romantic.
The dining room is large and celebratory, with dazzling Swarovski crystal chandelier modeled on an original from Buckingham Palace. But what ever you serve guests here, the take-away will always be the stunning views.
A Tuscan villa inspired this stunning kitchen to take the quest for great food and social pleasure to the next levle. It's an irresistibly indulgent antiquity-to-present day perspective on country kitchen. Design elements thrill: the fitted Amish-crafted stone wall at the kitchen's entry seems centuries old. It's warm rich colours complement tumbled travertine marble floors, and gleaming 'Tiramiso' granite counters, with tumbled marble and mosaic backsplash.
Meticulously crafted Provencal-style cabinetry in French Vanilla contrasts with the dark wood of the centre island. Entertaining? The island seats four; a nearby counter peninsula bar seats three more. Voila: party central. Clever details max out utility here. There are drawers in the kick-plates; pull-out spice pantries on either side of the industrial Viking range. A one-of-a-kind carved marble country sink from Italy harmonizes with the Imperial Roman style of the bold mosaic backing the range. Even appliances impress: there's an unobtrusive 'drawer' style microwave; two drawer Fischer Paykel dishwasher and sleek euro-fridge. An adjoining butler pantry has rich wood cabinetry a granite prep counter, plus three compartment wine and beverage cooler and tin-tile ceiling. Wow.
The master suite's philosophy? Spare no luxury. Bed and bedside tables feel safe and cozy, tucked in a slightly alcoved space. There's ample room for a couch close to the ethanol hearth with cast marble mantle. There's a sitting area with stellar corner window views.
It takes time to explore the walk in dressing room. It's that big. Wardrobe-minding shelves, drawers and closets keep you impeccable. Savor the envy-inspiring master bath, where antiquity meets today. The walk in shower has a classic mosaic; the extra long modern therapy bath soothes with jet pulses and shifting lights.
Just in case, your walk-to-everything lifestyle comes equipped with two underground parking spaces. An indoor swimming pool and fitness facility keep you fit. Security services are attentive.
Those who have what it takes to live beyond the merely luxurious will recognize 'home' in this richly outfitted super condo. If that's you, plan your appointment very soon. There will never be another space like it.
