Wouldn’t you love to have your own private oasis with a beautiful patio and heated inground saltwater pool to relax and unwind after a long week in the office once the summer heat hits? Sure, it might feel like summer is a long way away after the record snowfalls and negative temperatures of the last few weeks – but with this incredible 5 bedroom modern bungalow in family friendly Alta Vista, your personal oasis won’t just be a dream – this summer, it will be your reality!
Built in 1959, this 5-bedroom bungalow has been updated to include a more modern layout, and design. Large windows allow plenty of sunlight to flood through the main level, and a woodstove adds ambiance and keeps you warm through the bitter cold of winter.
The Main Level features hardwood throughout the living room, dining room and bedrooms and tile in the foyer, kitchen and bathrooms. From the foyer and dining room there are two steps down into the sunken living room, accented by stylish railings. The focal point in the bright living room is the modern hearth surrounding the woodstove. A mix of dark brick and wood create a striking balance, and well placed cut outs offer a very stylized design – this will be a conversation starter for sure!
Stepping up into the dining room, another set of corner windows allow tons of natural light through into the redesigned galley kitchen. The Dining Room leads into the kitchen with a breakfast bar – perfect for casual breakfasts, or lunches catching up with a friend. The kitchen features granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, pot lights, copper backsplash with under cabinet lighting, a large over sink window that overlooks the backyard, and quick access into the back yard through the back entrance.
From the kitchen you can pass through the main bathroom, into one of the bedrooms using the attached cheater door. Additionally, you can return to the main hallway and make your way into the Master bedroom, powder room, and 3 additional main floor bedrooms as well.
Stringing along the decor theme from the living room is a beautiful rail overlooking the stairs leading to the basement, from the hallway off the kitchen.
The Basement offers an additional bedroom, a luxurious second full bathroom, and a large rec room with gas fireplace that can be utilized in any number of ways. Set up some cozy chairs and cushions near the fireplace for a relaxing knitting, or reading nook, while the kids playroom takes up the rest of the space. Or, perhaps you turn it into a tv room, and home office, or even an in-law suite for when friends and family come to visit.
This backyard really is your personal oasis. Find yourself a cozy conversation set with a love seat and a few armchairs, a propane fire pit, and some decorative lighting and you will never want the summer to end! With mature trees and hedges there is no shortage of privacy, and the interlock patio that extends from the house around the pool is accented by wildflowers, and stone gardens.
You’re going to find it tough to leave this incredible home, but when you do – you won’t have to go far! It’s a short walk to the General Campus of The Ottawa Hospital and CHEO, and a short drive to the Riverside Campus. For shopping, it’s a quick 7 minute drive to the Ottawa Trainyards with a Nordstrom Rack, Farm Boy, Urban Barn and Figaro Coffee House.
Staying fit is a breeze with the Rideau River Eastern Pathway within jogging, or cycling distance, and your choice of Movati, Goodlife, and the Ottawa Athletic Club all within a 10 minute drive. Keeping the kids active is just as easy with any number of parks to choose from – al within walking distance! Grasshopper Hill Park is a hit with human and fur kids alike, with an off-leash dog zone, and separate childrens playground.
For those days that you need to head downtown, or to the west end of the city it’s easy to hop onthe 416 at Riverside to go east or west, or head downtown via Smyth Road and be in the Byward Market within 20 minutes. On the bus it will take you about 30 minutes to get downtown.
