Passionate contemporary design, a large lot and urban family spaces sets this exceptionally built home apart from many of its Lindenlea neighbours. The timeless contemporary aesthetic designed with flow and purpose delivers bright living spaces, all beautifully planned and flawlessly executed. The result? Classic family living with artful architectural touches that captivate - daily life is easy to manage yet always a joy.
Blink and you might miss it - subtle elegance is the name of the game here. Purposefully built so as not to detract from its surroundings, home's understated contemporary exterior greets with a soft, welcoming touch. Surrounded by greenery, a walkway leads to corner windows and an asymmetric facade that fuses provocative design with unfussy "real life" practicalities.
Inside, the reception zone feels bright, organic. Slate underfoot and a front hall closet is smartly placed a few steps beyond the entry - guests are given the opportunity to shed the elements. A nearby powder room features a clerestory window and minimalist finishes for a zen-like feel.
Exposed i-beams and structural posts collude with high ceilings for a timeless contemporary theme that echoes throughout the home. Full sized windows are placed to maximize spaciousness and light. Even on a grey day, lights are hardly ever required. Designed with knowledgeable and distinguished taste, the main floor layout achieves an easy balance between open flow and privacy.
Your attention is drawn into the open living and dining room. Start with the living room - bright, well-scaled and anchored by massive low-profile windows overlooking a picturesque streetscape. The warm quality and texture of natural birch flooring gives the whole space a harmonious, organic feel, tied together with a thoughtfully coordinated palette in the open and adjacent dining room. Notice the lighting - KRI lights hang discreetly to highlight favourite artwork, and a minimalistic fixture gives the impression that it's floating above your next swanky dinner party. Every detail was hand-chosen with exquisite taste. Big crowds are no match for this open living and dining space - the room is designed to accommodate formal dining on a large scale, yet easily embraces family meals and intimate gatherings.
The main hall flows easily into the kitchen, eat-in zone and family room, making social get togethers compatible with kids of all ages - keep an eye on them in the eat-in zone while you host in the dining room.
A u-shaped kitchen with countertop bar promises to be a social magnet and after school hang out. Tone and texture creates a beautiful workspace: warm mahogany cabinetry with barely there hardware, slate backsplash and Canadian-sourced quartz transform every culinary activity into an inspirational endeavour. The smart u-shape accommodates three comfortably - perfect for those big family get togethers. Folks keeping company in the adjacent family room will appreciate not seeing the mess of preparation that happens behind the bar top - they're too busy enjoying apps and cocktails! The bright eat-in area and living room are surrounded by windows. During summer months, enjoy your dinners al fresco or let the fun spill out onto the patio via the double doors. A locust tree yields that one of a kind dappled sunlight effect over the back yard for the perfect mix of sun and shade. Style is prominent in this summer oasis - high hedges offer privacy, landscaped greenery surrounds, and patio stone balances it all out for a very "zen-like" vibe.
The stairs to the second floor continue the visual pleasure of clean design, topped by a rooftop-shaped skylight responsible for filling the stairwell and hallway with light. Three bedrooms are generous, with high ceilings and ample closet space. The main bath includes rich slate floors, an oversized walk-in shower and natural-hued quartz vanity. Much like the rest of this home, it is bright, and retains the theme of "natural" design character. The large picture window in the master suite shows off nature's best - leafy green treetops for a "treehouse-like" effect. Enjoy an ensuite which was designed with efficient and pleasant mornings in mind. Clerestory window, double vanity and slate reappear, but it's the seamless integration with the large walk-in closet that will leave mornings feeling rejuvenated and efficient - ready to tackle the day.
The floorplan ends in the basement where garage access is found, along with an intelligently placed large closet - perfect for seasonal gear and family trappings. Make your way down the bright hall to an exception multi-purpose room. The advantages of being built on the grade start to really shine here. It's as bright as anywhere else in the house. Whether used as a home office, music room or rec area - this zone is sure to see plenty of use. You get a front row seat to the urban wildlife playing around in the backyard via the large window. Find laundry and a rough in for a powder room.
This level of timeless elegance and design intelligence yield benefits for those who experience them for years to come. Family-centric, a top notch location and impeccable contemporary design - what more could you ask for? Schools, local specialty shops and the social scene of Beechwood village are at your doorstep. Hop on transit or walk to the Byward Market, Parliament, the bike paths, trails and parks await your adventures and exploration. It's never been easier to seize and enjoy every moment of urban family living - make an appointment today!
