Classic Georgian in Rockcliffe Park
Spectacular grounds in the heart of the Old Village steps from the Rockeries! This sublime Georgian family home is set on a lush and private 16,447 square foot corner lot and was designed by Earle Ingram. Surrounded by elegant ambassadorial residences with large lots, this home has beautiful private gardens! The property has a frontage of 114 feet and a depth of 146 feet. The magnificently landscaped, fenced grounds enjoy perennial gardens, mature trees and a pond.
The lot is extremely private due to the configuration of the neighboring properties - it is adjacent to the neighbours’ lands, not their homes. This is a unique advantage. The home also enjoys southern and western exposure and is filled with light!
The property has a grand circular driveway, a double attached garage, a lovely screened-in porch and French doors opening to the gardens from the living, dining and family rooms. There is also a private balcony off the primary bedroom. Beautiful architectural features are found throughout, including quarter sawn oak hardwood floors and an antique marble fireplace in the living room. The living room is warm and inviting and enjoys southern and western exposure.
The dining room is spacious and great for entertaining! The Michael Cordon designed kitchen features custom cabinetry, black granite counters and a breakfast room with bay window views of the garden. The laundry room and mudroom are located conveniently off the kitchen. A private study overlooks the front streetscape.
There are four bedrooms on the second floor, including the primary suite with a huge balcony overlooking the backyard and an ensuite bathroom with a soaking tub and shower. Another of the bedrooms has its own ensuite bathroom and there is a third renovated family bathroom on the second floor.
The basement features a third fireplace, media room, wine cellar and workshop, as well as a fifth bedroom with an new ensuite bathroom (2019) and a cedar walk-in closet.
Surrounded by significant Rockcliffe Park properties and large ambassadorial residences, this property is elegant and beautiful. It offers three distinct outdoor living areas: a tranquil screened-in porch, a large balcony off the master suite and a spacious patio accessible via the dining room, family room and kitchen. This is not only one of Rockcliffe Park’s most admired homes, it is one of Ottawa’s true Dream Properties®.
