Award-winning contemporary design, calibrated perfectly for family living sets this LEED Platinum home apart from its neighbourhood peers. If the earth-saving credentials don't stir your soul, then the award-winning design will. A total of 5, including 3 GOHBA awards, supports stunning living spaces, intelligently planned and impeccably detailed. The result? Timeless modern living with a captivating edge that is packed with practical features ready to manage real life.

On approach, architect Rick Shean's use of natural elements and ingenious manipulation of natural light is front and centre. Designed to receive light at all hours of the day, this particular feature is a blessing during winter months. Reclaimed barn board adds texture, while the covered entrance and driveway offer a warm welcome.

Inside, the reception hall greets with great sightlines and a design theme centered around maximizing light and spaciousness. Italian imported lanterns steal the show - hand-picked by the architect for impactful and playful visual interest. Cool tones, heated concrete floors and clean lines blend the theme of every space, creating cohesiveness throughout. Open plan design and high ceilings on all levels create an effortless balance between flow and privacy. Take for example, the office immediately to your right - a rolling track mottled glass door and built-in shelves allow the space to flex between reading nook or productive home office. To add even more functionality, the nearby three piece bathroom with walk-in shower, shallow sink with integrated drain and floating Duravit toilet are sure to impress guests or potential clients.

Follow the main hall to a well-scaled open living area - it's bright, thoughtfully coordinated, and hosts a harmonious and natural feel, thanks to floor to ceiling windows framing an outdoor courtyard. Interiors are remarkably freeing - stock moldings and trim are banished, shelving and doors are integrated for maximum use of space. Control 4 handles security, and speakers are integrated throughout and outside - 21st century conveniences abound.

In the kitchen, designers have played off the concrete floor texture with sleek wood cabinetry, quartz countertops and chrome accents. The result is a striking workspace - the extra long island that centers the room is detailed with a stainless tub sink - post-dinner cleanup has nothing on you. Wolf and Miele appliances collude for the perfect team of sous-chefs, transforming every meal into a culinary delight. Practical touches like drawer storage and flip lift cabinets banish kitchen clutter. You'll love the practicality of a large laundry room only steps away.

Beyond, the open living and dining area is surrounded by light and nature - savor the courtyard that adds architectural interest both inside and out. Natural gas barbecue hook up, interlock patio and abundant privacy lay plans for a perfect alfresco venue. Back inside, flexible, unencumbered space lets your decor dreams soar - built-in shelving keeps technology and paraphernalia at bay so you can put this open zone to work in an infinite number of ways. Informal hangout? Elegant dining table for 12? Art wall? The opportunity to curate so personally has never been so effortless. Know that there's a rough in for a natural gas fireplace if that suits your aesthetic.

Outdoor leisure doesn't stop at the courtyard. A back door brings you to an urban oasis, made private by trees and leafy greenery, promising a cool respite on hot summer days. Open risers, glass railings and open to above volume lead upstairs, where sleeping quarters are smartly arranged to offer optimal privacy and uninterrupted relaxation. At the landing, an open nook looks down to the den or office below - two stories of windows illuminate for an exceptional place to handle domestic duties, homework, or play.

Three bedrooms are meant to offer the pleasure of convenience, efficiency, and style, and they deliver in spades. On-point ensuites in cool tones and sleek contemporary finishes are generous in size, while built-ins and vertical windows round out enviable spaces. A terrace at the end of the hall precedes the master - treetop views surround, a new morning coffee ritual follows.

Inside the master, a generous footprint and zen-like calm reigns. Choose to lower the blinds if you need to, but the verdant foliage around offers natural discretion. Access to the terrace yields sumptuous morning rituals. Savor the spa-like ensuite full of jovial details like a colour coded vanity with modular divider, floating Duravit toilet and extra long walk-in shower with oversized rain shower head.

The floorplan ends in the basement, despite the decidedly un-basement like qualities: find big, bright windows, pot lights and high ceilings amplifying light and volume. A three piece bathroom with cool mosaic tilework pairs beautifully with a large bedroom, sweeping homework station and plenty of built-ins. Storage, organization, efficiency - this home has it all.

Where else can you find such an economic and eco friendly home in the heart of the city as stylish as this stunner? Satisfying every need of the modern family, take advantage of a home that is poised for entertaining, family time, and everything in between. Minutes from Beechwood Village amenities, schools, and the endless opportunities for adventure by way of nearby parks and bike paths, this is a no-brainer for urbanites seeking a calming refuge in the nation's capital. Don't wait - see this exceptional home today!
