A distinguished home, a storied neighbourhood with roots in Canada's richest heritage; there is nothing comparable to the allure of Rockcliffe Park
On approach, open gables and a stucco finish encourage simple elegance - your welcome is comfortable, inviting, and refined. The Greek revival portico adds the right touch of character to this interwar dwelling, providing a hint of contrast to the mature trees that surround and protection from the elements.
Note the peaked solid wood door and ceramic underfoot upon entry. Elegant. Functional. The palette beyond is neutral and refined. Spaces are contained, yielding a functional and family-friendly layout that shifts easily from the elegant necessities of Rockcliffe life to the daily bustle of a dynamic family. A powder room and front hall closet manage pragmatic needs, and a commanding main hallway sets the stage.
Off the main hall, the kitchen opens up to a bright, light-filled eat-in area surrounded by windows overlooking the garden. High hedges, age-old trees and tiered landscaping yield an outdoor zone that feels spacious, yet private. Rock gardens add to the vista. There is ample space for playing, entertaining or simply relaxing with additional room for outdoor gear in the nearby shed.
The dining room with its bay window overlooking the back garden is scaled for memorable entertaining. Seat up to 10 comfortably, grateful that meal prep evidence is out of sight - or know that opening up the dining zone and kitchen is an option for those who want to personalize the space.
Note the span of the bona fide family room - exceptional in an interwar home, find kids honing their talent or doing homework, illuminated by floor to ceiling arched windows - whatever the need, this bright and expansive space lies at the ready. Another exceptional gem offered? A dedicated billiards room. Fully equipped with storage-banquettes, a bar top and coffered ceilings for a cozy ambiance, this is the stuff family souvenirs are made of. Guests embrace the opportunity of a laid-back pastime in this aptly decorated zone. Sweeping arched windows repeat for a lovely garden view - even game-spectators will never get bored.
French doors join the living room, allowing conversation and guests to flow easily and freely throughout the space. This is truly an epic arrangement for hosting. The equilateral layout of the living room with windows flanking either side of the marble clad fireplace spark conversation and the perfect balance between chic and inviting. Pot lights take over when the sun sets - adjust for whatever effect suits your desired mood.
A distinguished office is found on the stairway landing - still kitted with stunning original millwork, this is clearly a place for productivity. Working from home has never been so attractive or easy.
Upstairs, the master bedroom's expansive windows permit an enviable cross breeze but it's the picturesque bay window that steals the heart - the quiet tree-lined streets are the hallmark of this urban village, and they're yours to greet every morning. The spacious ensuite, equipped with walk in shower and jetted tub, is primed for customization - there's room for a walk-in closet of incredible proportions.
Three more bedrooms make up the balance of this floor, each offering a generous footprint, treetop views and character-filled loft ceilings. The main bathroom which serves these rooms is spacious and grants the opportunity for a weekend soak in the Jacuzzi or more efficient ablutions in the walk-in shower. With a footprint this good, know that customizing this space will be a breeze and banish any morning sibling battles.
The stairs to the third floor introduce a highly flexible loft space: guest bedroom, yoga or art studio, playroom for little ones, the options are endless. Make it yours. The circular window overlooking Rockcliffe's rooftops is a welcome surprise, while three skylights help to make this a bright and cheery room.
A dry basement is where this floorplan ends, with a cozy rec room, laundry and garage access within reach for daily use.
A scenic walk away from the city's best schools, a bike ride or short commute to downtown - find a neighbourly community that offers all the perks of family home living. Beloved hotspots like the Pond, the Rockeries and the Governor General's grounds, and Gatineau Park, beckon family weekend adventures. Your search ends here, book an appointment today!
