Spectacular Water Views in Rockcliffe Park
This is a rare opportunity to own a 7-bedroom Rockcliffe Park residence with water views. Built by its current owner, this home is coming to market for the first time after having served as an ambassadorial residence. This grand 2-storey residence offers 7 bedrooms, 9-foot ceilings and hardwood floors throughout with spectacular water views of "The Pond" in Rockcliffe Park. It is located only minutes from Canada’s parliament and top-ranking private schools.
The beautiful front door and dramatic main foyer set an elegant tone. The 18-foot high entry hall is welcoming and grand and overlooks a front garden sitting area with access from the living room. Step down to the gorgeous living room with its 19-foot high ceiling, southern exposure and fireplace. This room is filled with sunlight and well situated for entertaining.
French doors lead to the spacious dining room that offers majestic water views. Even the placement of the kitchen sink was designed to capture beautiful views of "The Pond." The kitchen is bright, yielding to western exposure, and originally opened to the breakfast room and adjacent family room beyond. At one point, a wall was installed between the breakfast room and the kitchen. This could easily be removed to make a significant open-concept kitchen and family room.
Step down to the family room and enjoy 10-ft ceilings, a fireplace, hardwood floors and access to the raised terrace and gardens beyond.
The master suite has superb water views, a fireplace, large ensuite bathroom and walk-in closet. There are three additional spacious bedroom and three bathrooms on the second floor plus two additional bedrooms with west-facing windows, a full bathroom and kitchenette in the basement. The basement also boasts a wine cellar that may be closed off by lock and key, recreation room with window and access to the spacious triple garage with attached workshop.
With high ceilings abound and rare water views, this residence offers sophisticated living. Enjoy late day western exposure and sunsets over "The Pond."
