This spectacular stone home offers elegant and sophisticated living in a fabulous location steps from The Rideau Canal. Having been gutted to the studs with a sympathetic eye in 2019, the home enjoys spectacular character details and upscale finishes.

The gated front courtyard is lined with picturesque hydrangeas. There is a fabulous covered pergola and a double garage. The home has lots of curb appeal and has high-end Pella windows and doors throughout.

The front door opens to the dramatic main floor living space. The foyer and main hallway enjoy beautiful radiant-heated marble floors with inlaid details. The foyer features soaring ceilings, exposed brick and a sweeping staircase with custom wrought iron railing. A custom stained-glass window and skylight enhance the drama of this space.

The open concept living / dining room enjoys sophisticated herringbone oak flooring with a handrubbed oil finish. The living room has a gas fireplace with a granite surround and accesses the pergola, which is ideal for dining outdoors. The luxurious kitchen has top-of-the-line appliances by Sub-Zero, Wolf and Miele. With heated floors and a gorgeous stained-glass window over the kitchen sink, this room is fantastic.
