This jaw-dropping 29,643 square foot property enjoys mature trees and backs onto conservation land, enjoying complete rear privacy. The backyard has beautiful mature trees, and enjoys southern and western exposure. The trees and setting make the property spectacular, making you feel as if you were in a canyon home in California.

The home itself is an inviting, updated mid-century modern split-level, that was designed by famed architects, Assaly and Johannsen as one of their signature “trend homes.” The house has been upgraded over the years by the current owners. Surrounded by mature trees that lend natural privacy, this property offers an unparalleled sense of seclusion and tranquility that can be enjoyed from inside the screened-in porch, on the outdoor patio and even looking out from each window.

The setting is truly phenomenal and offers a rare tranquility and sensational quality of life. The house boasts distinctive mid-century architectural elements, including clean lines, organic materials and a respect for the outdoor setting evident in its design; large windows take advantage of the views and natural light.

The expansive windows on the main floor frame panoramic views of the lot. The lot itself is simply spectacular. Late afternoon sunlight filters into the main living and dining rooms. A brick fireplace serves as the focal point of the great room, offering a cozy retreat on chilly evenings. The granite kitchen has a breakfast room and beautiful tree views of the front garden. There is also a wonderful screened-in porch. This is the ultimate room for summer living.

A few steps above and below the main floor are two separate levels, each with two bedrooms and a full bathroom. Each room offers tranquil views of the lush surroundings, creating a serene sanctuary for relaxation and rejuvenation. The basement features a recreation room, laundry room and plenty of storage space.

Outside, the expansive backyard beckons with its verdant foliage and secluded ambiance. A sprawling terrace, shaded by towering trees, invites you to unwind. The neighbourhood is in a phenomenal location, only 15 minutes’ drive from downtown Ottawa and 3 minutes from Blair Road Boat Launch, making an early morning or after work kayak ride a possibility. Nearby are world-class bike paths and trails, with Rothwell Heights a stop along the Ottawa River Pathway network.

With its breathtaking forested views, secluded setting, and inviting character, this updated split-level home is a private retreat in the heart of nature.
