185 Mackay Street
New Edinburgh

The New Edinburgh way of life: scenic walks or bike rides to work, leisurely strolls to Union Street Cafe, family time discovering the history and beauty of the Governor General's residence and surrounding pathways and parks, and the convenience of amenity-rich Beechwood Village just steps away. Is there anything better?

An incomparable home finds itself on Mackay Street, sitting across from the lush lawns of the Governor General's residence and with a provenance dating back to 1909. With a curbside appeal so picturesque, it's hard to deny its exceptional allure - soothing neutral brick welcomes and building-spanning porches on two levels promise good things to come.

Inside, home's heritage has been preserved with meticulously good taste and a refined eye for functional living. Striking an impeccable balance of history and 21st century needs, find transoms above french doors and sweeping windows for optimal light flow. Hardwood floors, and soaring ceilings framed by elegant moulding and millwork are spotted throughout. A large entrance foyer allows space and storage for guests to get acquainted. Move into the formal living room which is sure to charm all occupants - the backdrop of the Governor General's residence never gets old. The adjacent dining room offers an exceptional locale for formal entertaining - serve up epic dishes beneath a hand-made glass chandelier, twin buffets waiting to serve. The best part? If you fall in love with the furniture and decor, it can stay - move-in ready is brought to a whole new level.

Access the kitchen via the stairway landing - handy powder room nearby - and find a bright, uber functional culinary zone. Jennair wall ovens, granite counters and oodles of cabinetry round out this space. The countertop bar offers a gathering spot for breakfast on the go and a seamless link to the office space or family room beyond. Conveniently, a side door with mudroom handles comings and goings.

Whether the bright, spacious zone at the back of home acts as a home office, private library, den, or playroom, it is sure to see plenty of use. Step outside into a garden oasis - can you believe you're still in the city? A large patio meets lush green space and ultimate privacy. Natural gas barbecue hookup guarantees epic summer entertaining, while a built-in irrigation system banishes maintenance worries. The two car garage accessed on Avon Lane is well kitted out and convenient.

Upstairs, four bedrooms are spacious, bright and offer plenty of closet space. One boasts a large porch and wall to wall closets, and another a built-in sink. The skylight on the landing is a reminder of home's optimal orientation; sun all day and a perfectly framed moon at night. A well appointed three piece main bathroom serves with panache.

In the master bedroom, tree-top views from windows all around offer a totally adult retreat. Watch the fireworks without getting out of bed! The best part? Wardrobe woes are banished - there's a walk-in closet and a wide open dressing room or sitting area to make your own. The ensuite competes for your attention: kitted out in calming neutrals, a large walk-in shower with rainshower head and therapeutic body jets is complemented by a double granite-topped vanity and wall sconces to set a zen-like mood.

In the basement, a fantastically dry and cozy area welcomes - there's a three piece bath and space for nanny or in-law suite. Smart design keeps it bright. Find also additional storage for seasonal or active gear.

A home that offers comfortable family conveniences while simultaneously being ever-ready for refined entertaining - the combination is as enchanting as it sounds. The magic of New Edinburgh and the history of the nation's capital is all around. See it today!
