Patrice and Elmer,
Once again Flora and I want to sincerely thank you for not only your professionalism in all aspects of the sale of John's property but also for all the extras: patience in hearing us out, confidence and steadfastness in your analysis and advice, responsiveness to all our concerns. I could go on.
As a lawyer who does 100 real estate deals a year and has been doing so for over 35 years, I've experienced a realtor or two in my day. You are the very best.
Old Ottawa East
Do you skate? Jog? Cycle? Does the perfect walk take you over a footbridge to Glebe shopping and the Farmer's Market? On one of the prettiest blocks in celebrated Old Ottawa East, this fairytale Tudor-influenced bungalow is a skip away from the historic Rideau Canal and its life-rich amenities. Built in the early 40's, the architecture echoes the in-demand fashion of the time with its warm brick, stucco and timber accents, rounded portico, and distinctive chimney. Inside, beautiful leaded and stained glass windows, period trimwork, and lovely hardwoods delight. A convenient side door entry leads directly to a "bungalow-sized" lower level. Seasonally capturing southeast and northwest light, back and front respectively, the residence has exploited opportunities for perennial plantings on 4 sides. The secluded garden and screened sitting area add timeless pleasure, a sun room beckons.....life is beautiful here.
Some residences have the capacity to irrevocably impress. This is one of those. On much sought-after Erinwoods Circle, loved for its architectural streetscape, this Touchstone model backs on to 75-acre Capital Memorial Gardens edging the Stonebridge Trail & the River. Barry Hobin Architect and Uniform Developments collaborated to create this Craftsman-inspired bungalow with an expansive second storey "loft" housing a big romantic bedroom, a glorious space-for-it-all work area & the 3rd bath. The dramatic main floor surpasses stunning with its vaulted and coiffured ceilings, lavishly sized open-plan rooms, and yards of windows. Here, 2 more large bedrooms, 2 full baths & a discrete front office make the tally! A huge lower level w/uncommonly large windows showcases a direct staircase to the garage. Site-finished hardwood & custom trimwork grace both levels. Divine? Yes. Destiny...Stonebridge!
Dramatic architectural revision and fabulous light set apart this one-of-a-kind residence with 36 foot heated kidney-shaped pool in Queensway Terrace. Ceilings soar, porthole, roundhead and skylite windows punctuate, entertainment options excel. A stunning main floor Greatroom, as well as a lower level media room augment the formal principal rooms. The demands of remote-working are met with a Home Office plus a Den, west sun & east sun exposed, respectively. The 2016 upper bath (freestandng tub, glass shower, heated fl) is a spa-lover's retreat. In the second bath (2015), a walk-in shower delights. And, at the hub of the design, the modern custom Kitchen showcases extensive built-ins, including retractable downdraft ventilation. Mature hedges shelter the yard, an interlock patio edges the pool. Perennial gardens dominate in front, irrigated by inground sprinklers.
HISTORIC OLD BYTOWN
Copying the gabled dormer rooflines, window, and porch styles of the nineteenth century, Majestic Key Construction sought to not only blend this modern condominium seamlessly into historic Lowertown, but to provide owners with the warmth & charm of the period on the interior (wainscoting, marble, beautiful trimwork). The original owner chose this model with great care, selecting the top floor, coveted west/north exposure (July 1st fireworks!), and a design that lends itself perfectly to entertaining. 2 skylights add ambiance, a fireplace focuses the space, a newly-decked balcony sits in the treetops, and a common area garden & patio add enjoyment. With walk, transit & bike scores ranging from 87 to 97, this sector of "Old Bytown' is a dream to explore. 2 rivers and the Canal flank the neighbourhood on 3 sides. Great restaurants, quaint shops & produce markets meet up with the National Gallery, the Mint, the Rideau Centre, the Chateau Laurier.
