Superb Rockcliffe Park Location
This property enjoys a prime location in the Old Village of Rockcliffe Park. The wonderful, 29,069 square foot lot is well treed, has 170 feet of frontage, and benefits from extensive adjacent parkland with treed vistas over the Rockeries to the Ottawa River. It is within walking distance of Elmwood School, Ashbury College and Rockcliffe Park Public School as well as the Rockcliffe Lawn Tennis Club, the Community Centre and McKay Lake.
This is the first time the Southam Family home has come to market, creating a great opportunity to own an important piece of Rockcliffe Park history. The contemporary design of the home is evident upon stepping through the entry, where one is immediately drawn to the soaring cedar ceilings and dramatic red brick wall that provides continuity for the three levels. The main floor comprises a dining room and kitchen, both of which have access to the south- facing side garden and patio to facilitate indoor-outdoor living and entertaining.
The mid level accommodates a large family room with balconies on two sides from which to enjoy the amazing views. A wood-burning fireplace with a floating marble hearth is incorporated into the interior brick wall, and there is a convenient butler’s pantry off the family room. The master bedroom suite, complete with a walk-in closet and large ensuite bathroom, is located adjacent to the family room. It has a romantic, wood-burning fireplace in its brick wall to carry out the theme and also has a balcony overlooking the side gardens. The second floor mezzanine level has two bedrooms with balconies and a four-piece bathroom with a skylight that bathes the room in natural light.
The lower level has a large family room with a fireplace, built-in cabinetry and a sliding door to the south-facing garden. There are two additional bedrooms on this level, one of which opens to the garden, as well as a party kitchen and a bathroom. The basement has ample storage space and a laundry.
This home represents a unique opportunity to imprint one’s style in an unsurpassed location whose site orientation and views are arguably unrivaled in the Village of Rockcliffe Park.
