Fantastic Old Village Bungalow
This is a rare, superb stone bungalow located on a quiet street in the heart of the old Village of Rockcliffe Park. Spacious, bright and with curb appeal, it would be a wonderful home for the family that prefers to live on a single level but appreciates the privacy of a partial second floor. The home has been maintained meticulously and is in move-in condition. It is located near Mackay Lake with its nature preserve, the Rockcliffe Park Lawn Tennis Club, and a short walk from the community centre and local schools.
The layout is superb, with large, bright principal rooms with lovely architectural details. The foyer has an elegant marble floor, a large skylight that fills it with light, and a well-sized cloak closet. The foyer opens via French doors to the spectacular living room that is illuminated by large Palladian-style windows and has hardwood floors and a gas fireplace with black marble surround. The dining room is scaled for formal entertaining and has a lovely parquet floor and southern exposure. The kitchen is spacious and functional, featuring extensive light cabinetry, ceramic floor, Corion counters and a centre island. There is lots of storage space, stainless steel appliances, and a fabulous butler’s pantry complete with a wine refrigerator. A breakfast room opens to the pantry and has views of the back garden.
A large, south-facing, elegantly carpeted family room with a fireplace is located off the kitchen, and a lovely office/library with built-in cabinetry, bookshelves, carpeting and a fireplace is privately located off the foyer. There is also a fantastic sun room with beveled glass French doors leading via an awning-sheltered deck to the back gardens. The master bedroom suite is spacious and bright and features a dressing room with a beautiful vanity and make-up bar, walk-in closet, and ensuite bathroom with a soaking tub and separate shower. A second bedroom with ensuite bathroom is also located on the main level.
This bungalow benefits from a half second storey that houses a bright third bedroom with sitting room and four-piece bathroom. This could readily be converted to two bedrooms if desired.
The basement is finished with a large recreation room complete with fireplace, a nanny suite and an additional four-piece bathroom. The large double garage opens conveniently to the mudroom laundry.
