SOLD | 1690 Alta Vista Drive | Contemporary Bungalow in Riverview Park

Don’t Miss this Unique Home!

1690 Alta Vista is SOLD!


With a manicured lawn and landscaped gardens, this Elegant Bungalow sits unassumingly on its corner lot along Alta Vista – but you won’t want to miss out on what’s inside!

Built in the 1950’s, the first thing that you will notice about this house (besides the beautiful landscaping) are all of the windows that run along the front. The exterior of the house is a beautiful mix of stucco and stone, and the interlock front walkway steps up to a lovely covered entryway landing. You’ll be well protected from rainy days when you’re trying to get your keys out to unlock the door!

The Main level has a pleasantly unique layout with tile in the entry and hardwood flooring throughout. Stepping through the front door finds you in the large open concept Sitting Room, Dining Room and Chef’s Kitchen. The Dining Room is tucked into an alcove that is surrounded by large windows that create a bright and inviting space. It is separated from the Sitting Room by fluted pillars  and a ceiling embellishment that makes you feel as though you are tucked away in a new room.

A very unique gas fireplace centres the open space – visible from any angle of the large room, and yet tucked unobtrusively into the cabinetry and surrounded by granite that matches the countertops.

The Chef’s Kitchen has a generous amount of cupboard space, and a large centre island with stunning hanging pendant lights – perfect for casual dinners with the family. A large Bay Window over the sink floods the room with natural light, while providing you with a window ledge perfect for growing fresh herbs to include in your meals! The kitchen is completed by a built in double oven, and a cooktop range, as well as a large Business Centre, for those work-from-home days.

The Living Room has the feel of a Solarium with large floor to ceiling windows along the exterior wall, and open to the front entry. Spacious enough to include a large sectional couch, this room is perfect for family movie nights – just lower the room darkening blinds and you’ll feel like you’re out at the movies!

The second door from the Living Room leads into a Den that is currently being used as an additional bedroom, but would work just as well as a mudroom, play room, home office, or home gym. There is an additional exterior door from this room that leads into the driveway.

The generous Master Bedroom has a door to the backyard, and a beautiful ensuite, as well as His and Hers closets and a built in combination dresser and entertainment centre. A good sized additional bedroom, and the Main bathroom complete the main level.

There is an additional bedroom and bathroom in the Basement, as well as a large rec room and a wet bar. The door at the top of the stairs gives access to the side yard with a covered deck. There is a small deck, a hot tub, and a shed in the fully fenced backyard.

It’s just a 20 minute drive to downtown, or 7 minutes to Lansdowne Park. This home is walking distance to the Riverside and General Campus’ of the Ottawa Hospital, and to CHEO. You can also walk to the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation – Maplesoft Centre, or the Canadian Blood Services building.

For all your shopping needs it’s a quick 5 minute drive (or 20 minute walk) to the Ottawa Trainyards where you will find everything from a Movati Fitness Centre, all of your outdoor adventure needs at SAIL, groceries at Farm Boy, or Walmart and a variety of clothing and specialty stores.
