Rothwell Heights with Provenance
This commanding Bauhaus-style residence is situated on a rare Rothwell Heights cul-de-sac that enjoys privacy and unique, foliage rich views. This home enjoys a wonderful history and architect Richard Limmert received accolades for its inventive and bold design. Originally designated Leduc House for its first owner, the home boasts unique sight lines to treed vistas.
Enter the front door of this dramatically designed home to a modern foyer. Unique design features include a long, bright hallway with soaring ceilings, abundant windows and marble flooring. This hallway leads to the slate-floored kitchen and both spaces overlook the gorgeous back patio and garden. A family room adjacent to the kitchen offers convenient living. On this level are also a living room with a loft and a powder room. The next level has three bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom. There is also a private teenage/nanny suite.
A 1989 Ottawa Citizen article by Rhys Phillips labels the home’s innovative interior and exterior “design without fear.” This certainly describes the bold angles and light-filled spaces in this memorable residence. This home is truly unlike any other found in the area and it has earned its place in Ottawa’s architectural and creative histories.
