There are great addresses and there is "the address" - the inescapably perfect location to catch the pulse of Ottawa power while savouring the nearby pleasures of the Byword Market the National Capital's cultural heritage. This lovely 700 Sussex two bedroom is a tranquil island in the heart of the city, custom designed to offer deep privacy and all the features of a true urban home.
From the vantage of a gracious reception area you're struck by the warmth and quality of light. The sense of welcome is enhanced by changes to the standard plan aimed at keeping the space open, discretely relocating the reception closet behind beveled mirror doors.
A custom extended kitchen succeeds as the social heart of this home. Halogen lighting plays off upgraded black granite counters and a gleaming bar counter. Tumbled travertine backsplash tiles complement premium stainless appliances and mahogany shaker-style cabinets, with features including a well-placed wine rack. The mood is vibrant, made for entertaining and gourmet encounters with market-fresh fare.
By enlarging the kitchen, the design refined the proportions of the living room, defining a remarkably comfortable space that's more than a match for any social requirement. A substantial hearth helps set the mood. Rich honey oak engineered flooring adds warmth. Floor to ceiling European windows open to an intimate view of the famed Byward Market's George Street. Wall to Wall luminette curtains come with a power glide control. A premium Pioneer Elite plasma 43 inch screen -included -- delivers maximum media impact with a very discrete profile.
An ingenious alteration of the floor plan created a true formal dining area separate from the living room - a substantial improvement on the standard lay out. This crucial change adds flexibility to entertaining, and maximizes the utility of the home's public areas.
Past the dining area, a wide hallway leads to the home's very private bedrooms. Condo-smart design eliminated extraneous doorways in the standard plan, creating a clean simple flow.
Tasteful Carrera marble sets the tone of a guest bathroom with glass walk in shower and marble vanity. The guest bedroom is impressively accommodating too, with high ceilings, and European-style hinged window with a great view the city's famous market. Solid doors throughout add to the noticeable quiet.
Wake up to see the rose vendors on George Street: there's an indisputable touch of drama in the design of the astutely planned master suite. Floor to ceiling European style hinged windows open to take in the market view. The walk-in closet and companion linen closet are concealed by a sliding pocket door. The master ensuite pampers with Carrera marble flooring, marble vanity, walk in shower plus soaker tub with marble surround, mirrored wall and classic 'Greek key' pattern ceramic detailing.
When its time to relax the fifth floor location offers distinct advantages. Fitness facilities are on the same floor, a short walk away, along with hot tub, sauna, billiard room and library. In summer the 'garden floor' sheltered rooftop offers a barbeque with the city's best views.
