Old Ottawa East
Standout style in a rejuvenating neighbourhood, this home holds a humble-yet-commanding presence compared to others on its street.
Through contrasting elements, we juxtapose the “old versus new” ambiance of the area.
Externally, we offset the front elevation monolithic brick volume with a protruding fibre cement block. The flat roof permitted generous ceiling heights without the added heaviness.
A step inside and you’re immediately bathed in daylight. The main floor’s contemporary open concept introduces the kitchen, living, and dining room.
Instantly, the kitchen’s island becomes the main attraction of the interior space. It’s challenged only by the intimate dining room overlooking the backyard. The unobstructed view from its large corner windows makes it feel like a perpetual picnic in the park.
A stunning open riser staircase leads to the second floor. Upstairs, this modest-sized home provides four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a laundry room, and an office. The master bedroom boasts a walk-through closet which traverses to the ensuite. There, a luxurious custom shower invokes a trendy spa experience.
