There are elements that define a home – on Summit Avenue, mid-century undertones and the era's incredible aesthetic endures, but a recent large-scale renovation has left the space professionally designed, contracted and curated. A wealth of knowledge is evident, but it's the balanced confidence and stylish subtlety of the home that truly sets it apart. Enter a home brought forward into the 21st century with a modern, thoughtfully on-point design.

On a deep lot, find the bungalow's roof pitch and humble impression the embodiment of mid-century residential style. On approach, the front yard's towering Japanese maple tree is the stuff of legend – one of very few in the city, its exquisite texture, form and colouring draw a crowd during its striking fall display.

Inside under high cathedral ceilings, a clever entryway closet hides essentials, then opens further into the double garage. Opposite, a long open horizontal wall section allows natural light and augments visual interest. Soaring heights extend the entryway vertically to timber beams above – an homage to the home's origins, the rich wood tones have been stylishly preserved throughout the main floor living area.

A wide hall lends room to welcome a crowd and provides a jumping off point for the home's décor. To the left, the dining room extends an intimate elegance to mealtime; to the right, find the open living room and kitchen.

In the living room, the visual weight of ceiling beams is easily matched by the robust stone fireplace – the unrefined, natural hearth surrounds the wood-burning fireplace. Rich grey-washed built-in bookshelves leave the room speaking of comfort, informality, and intentional style. Wide windows to the street keep the room naturally lit; built-ins house the entertainment centre, bar fridge, and storage space for all the family's trappings.

Nearby, the kitchen is at once decidedly 'now' and truly at home in a mid-century home – tone-perfect lower cabinetry paired with frosted glass uppers, white quartz countertops and the subtle sheen of glass backsplash are so complimentary. The gas range, wall ovens, superb lighting and exceptional drawer storage produce an admirable assistant to the family chef. Island seating yields invaluable homework, entertaining, or informal dining space. The yard, accessible via kitchen or dining room for the perfect outdoor dining solution, reveals a neighbourhood advantage – large, private lots lie under mature trees. The result is a soaring deciduous scene, interlocking patio, and private yard space to play, dine or relax.

Down the hall, note solid wood doors and sleek, streamlined millwork here and throughout – no corners were cut in the quest for clean lines and high-quality finishes. Find two well-sized bedrooms sharing the main bathroom, where a deep soaker tub and sleek vanity drawers yield appealing space. The master bedroom's great proportions lead through to the ensuite, where a wall-defining mirror leaves the oversized glass shower, his and hers vanity sinks and adjacent storage superbly bright.

Below, the basement's vast space surprises – a wood-burning fireplace delineates a seating area; beyond, a large open family room or rec room remains flexible for family needs. Brand new stylish laminate flooring makes for a bright and clean space. Seemingly endless storage, including a cold room or potential wine cellar, complements the laundry room, full bathroom, fourth bedroom and adjacent office.

The neighbourhood is an outdoorsman's paradise – with a multitude of parks and forest minutes away on foot and a cycle to Brewer Park or Dow's Lake a very manageable possibility, home couldn't be better situated to experience the city. Work at CHEO or the Ottawa Hospital makes for a wonderful commute; good specialty schools and community programs make the area a family haven. Stunning mid-century modern living space in a well-established central neighbourhood – seize the opportunity!
