HIGHLIGHTS

DISCOVER THIS PROPERTY

A Mid-Century Modern masterpiece and one of Ottawa’s truly iconic homes. For decades, this sprawling Alta-Vista property doubled as a place where leading members of this prestigious community would gather. Through an extensive and meticulous renovation, this expansive bungalow has been restored to past glory and modernized to meet the desires of today’s families.

Upon entering, one is immediately struck by the sheer brightness and scale of the space which artfully juxtaposes an invigorating natural energy with quiet comfort, created by the triple glazed, noise-cancelling windows that wrap the home. The grand living room with 10-foot ceilings and spectacular sunset views flows into a formal dining room and magnificent chef’s kitchen to create a flawless backdrop to your next get-together. Tucked behind the kitchen, a peaceful sunroom provides direct access to the beautifully landscaped and fully hedged backyard.

Finally, a separate side entrance provides direct access to an equally impressive lower level which currently features a state-of-the-art infrared sauna, media-room, gym, spare bedroom, and full bathroom along with ample storage. An ideal basement for quality family time or, for the entrepreneur, the perfect space to operate a home business, private professional practice, or rental suite, just to name a few. This home epitomizes style and grace, a true must-see.
