This is a special property in a special location. Sited on Embassy Row amongst other prominent residences including those of the Ambassadors of Austria, Korea, Libya, Spain, Tunisia and Turkey, this wonderful property could not be more advantageously situated. It is an imposing two-storey residence that tempers timeless Arts and Crafts styling with a sense of the whimsical. Designed by Ottawa architect Greg Manley, this home was created to combine comfortable family living with the option of elegant entertaining on a grand scale.

French Construction using the finest materials, this fabulous home showcases many architectural details including beautiful cove moldings and baseboards Rocky Mountain hardware, California shutters, beautiful hinges and finials, five-inch walnut flooring, heated slate floors, and high-quality fixtures. The cabinetry was custom-built by A. Gruber Custom furniture. It is also a state-of-the-art electronic smart house with the electrons being orchestrated from a single location controlling lights, alarm, music, and surveillance.

One is drawn in initially to this inviting home by its outstanding curb appeal, circular driveway and angled garage. The main entrance is by double, custom-built mahogany, glass and wrought iron doors with Rocky Mountain hardware and finials. The foyer has a heated slate floor. Off the front entry is the dramatic, octagonal turret study with its soaring ceiling, beautiful views and built-in drawers, cupboards and shelves. The sunken floor, giving a sense of intimacy, counterbalances the grand scale of the living room. A beautiful granite fireplace is shared by the living room and dining room, both of which have cozy heated slate floors. The dining room is of a scale suited to formal entertaining, and for indoor-outdoor flow accesses the gardens through French doors.

The kitchen is superlative large, bright beautiful and highly functional for both day-to-day living and entertaining.
