Architect’s Dream with Pool & Soaring Ceilings
This 4-bedroom home has everything – a pool, outdoor kitchen, private in-law suite, high ceilings and great light conditions! Custom-designed by renowned architect David Mailing, the home contains many of his trademark, sophisticated design elements, including the use of stone and stucco and timeless interiors. Soaring ceilings, spacious room sizes and a fantastic layout make this home as functional as it is beautiful. The property is well-positioned on a beautiful 9,350-square-fot lot (+/-), allowing for the best light conditions. It is situated in sought-after Moffat Farm, a quiet community with just over 200 homes, parkland and close to schools, including Carleton University.
The home enjoys fabulous curb appeal, including a gorgeous approach via a meandering walkway. The dramatic front door has beautiful sidelights and transom windows, ensuring an elegant entrance. The foyer features a large coat closet and tiled floors. The jaw-dropping, double-height great room enjoys southern exposure and a feature wall with a wood-burning fireplace. The stunning stone fireplace surround extends the full height of the room, enhancing the warmth and beauty of the room. The fireplace’s curved hearth is stylishly juxtaposed with the room’s hardwood flooring. The curve seamlessly transitions from the same tile found in the foyer into the rich oak hardwood found throughout the main and second floors. The hearth tiles continue through the breakfast room and kitchen. Elegant built-in shelving provides for both storage and display space. The breakfast room has access to the covered back terrace and the pool beyond. The granite kitchen enjoys stainless steel appliances, an induction cooktop, a built-in desk area and a large centre island with counter seating. The large walk-in pantry has fantastic storage space.
The main floor layout has a fabulous flow, and the dining room is easily reachable from the kitchen, making serving a breeze. A picturesque banquette in the window looks onto the streetscape. Also on the main floor is a great mudrooom and a powder room with granite counters and a feature stone wall, redolent of the great room’s feature wall.
The second floor landing has artistic birdseye views over the foyer and great room. The primary suite offers fabulous private space. With two spacious walk-in closets and a generous-sized bedroom with high windows that facilitate privacy, this suite is wonderful. The large ensuite bathroom enjoys a soaking tub, two sinks, a water closet with toilet and shower and honed granite counters.
There are two additional, well-sized bedrooms on the second floor, as well as a laundry room and full family bathroom with two sinks and granite counters.
The basement enjoys high ceilings and lots of natural light. There is a large recreation room with a wood-burning fireplace and built-in bookshelves.
