Simply Incredible in Rockcliffe Park
This spectacular property is situated in a very prestigious location in the Old Village of Rockcliffe Park. The property offers magnificent views of the Gatineau Hills, renowned in the City for their beauty and majesty.
The grounds are elegantly landscaped with gardens surrounding the circular driveway that leads to the front entrance. This is particularly suited to the Canadian climate where ease of access to the property is imperative for receiving guests. A wide staircase and covered portico augment the sophistication and convenience of the entry. Architectural detailing, custom finishings and dramatic spaces abound on the interior which has been designed for entertaining on a grand scale.
The main foyer is spectacular with a soaring 20-foot ceiling, marble tile floor and circular staircase. Beautiful crystal chandeliers adorn both the main foyer and ancillary foyer off which a walk-in cloakroom and guest powder room is located. With three reception rooms - in addition to the grand foyer - one has the ability to host an intimate gathering or a large formal event. The main reception room features an 11-foot coffered ceiling, large windows and two doors that lead to the East garden for summer entertaining. The custom fireplace has been carved to compliment the rich detailing that is found in the moldings surrounding the doorways. The second reception room acts as a study or boardroom, while the third features exquisite custom cabinetry that extends to the cathedral ceiling, a marble fireplace and custom draperies on the windows.
With a beautiful carved fireplace and streetscape views, the dining room is warm and inviting to the most discerning of guests. The spacious kitchen features professional appliances and has an excellent layout for a house of this scale. Custom cabinetry with granite counter tops and a large centre island combine with a Hartland stainless fridge/ freezer, double-oven gas range and an electric oven to allow entertaining with ease. The main floor laundry is easily transformed into a staff bedroom and is conveniently located adjacent to the side entrance and double car garage.
The second floor hosts the private living space of the home. The primary suite offers a sophisticated double door entrance to a foyer leading to the gorgeous primary bedroom. It has a beautiful coffered ceiling, gleaming quarter-sawn oak floors and features a spacious walk-in closet with custom built-in cabinetry. The elegant ensuite bathroom features two vanities, a circular soaking tub, glass shower and private water closet creating a luxurious environment. Each of the additional five bedrooms on the second floor offer spacious and bright rooms with ensuite bathrooms that offer contemporary design.
The basement comprises a family room with a fireplace and a bedroom with three-piece bathroom. There are two entrances to the basement; a formal family staircase that leads off the foyer and a secondary staircase that leads from the laundry room/bedroom and garage entry. This house is indicative of the fine workmanship and detailing that is incorporated into the finest Rockcliffe Park homes, yet is unique in its prestigious location and specific design for entertaining on a grand scale.
