New Edinburgh

19th century meets light-loving neo-modernism in this one of a kind historic home. The address boasts a own special piece of history - as one of the five original cottages of labourers who built MacKay estate - now the Governor General's residence, home radiates with character and influence.

Within, extraordinary harmony is achieved between old and new, blending traditional materials with contemporary - plexiglass, slate, maple hardwood - what a wow factor! To the right, home's original footprint is a comforting living room and den area; a narrow slate wall and Franklin stove collude for the ultimate leisure zone.

Across the hall lies the bright dining room - powder room conveniently tucked away nearby. The bamboo accent wall makes a great conversation starter, and plentiful space yields elegant, easy to handle dinner parties.

A glass block wall grants oodles of natural light yielding a kitchen sure to be appreciated by all - granite topped counters produce great working space and masses of cabinetry hide the tools of the trade. A great island and eat-in area produce daily options for your morning routine, while Miele appliances round out this space. Nearby, find a super functional laundry room with extra storage. Access to the back garden leads to an Ipe clad deck. It teams perfectly with granite stone, newly landscaped flowerbeds, and a lovely pergola - what a spot for alfresco entertaining. It's hard to believe this country-like setting is only two kilometers from Parliament. Back inside, an open staircase leads to the second floor - don't forget to look up at the open ceiling and skylight. In the master suite, continuity is found in the bamboo accent wall and light-granting windows. A large footprint and two spacious walk-in closets offer the opportunity to create a truly adult refuge. The European-inspired ensuite combines utility and sophistication; slate, multi-sized tile, and luxe finishings are used to fabulous effect.

Floating cabinets, marble countertop and therapeutic tub by BainUltra are major crowd pleasers in the main bath. Take the steel walkway to access the remaining two bedrooms. As part of the original structure, they offer great closet space and neat loft ceilings. The third floor grants a home office or play area. Built-ins keep life organized, bright windows let in amazing light - the perfect space to get creative in.

Ending in the basement, a world of productivity awaits. Built-in desks, space for a rec room, plus a workshop with access to the back garden complete a hyper-utilitarian lower level.

Family-friendly and chic design in a neighbourhood known for great sense of community, historic pride, and covetable laneway living - a great opportunity awaits. Some of the city's best schools are minutes away, nearby Rockcliffe Park and local amenities in Beechwood Village will soon become frequent weekend hangouts. A quick commute to the city centre via transit, car or on foot are always scenic - don't wait, see it today!
