Built in the late 1980’s, and surrounded by matures trees; this 3-storey home at the top of the hill in Picadilly-Mayfair can almost make you feel like you’re in a treehouse overlooking the city below, with partial views of the Gatineau Hills. Soaring cathedral ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, decks and balconies, not to mention a Third Floor Primary Retreat with a rooftop terrace, combine with the contemporary layout, and custom millwork for a truly unique home.
Mature trees, and beautiful stone walls catch your eye as you approach this home. The interlock of the driveway leads up the steps to a front stone patio before you climb the five stairs up to the front porch. Enjoy an afternoon coffee catching up with a friend on this porch or patio; while the trees offer you some privacy from the street.
As you step through the front door, you will find yourself in a vestibule with a large entry closet, that can be closed off from the main house with a French door. On your left, in the main hallway, is the staircase leading up to the second level, and heading to the right leads you into the living room. Natural light streams through the beautiful 12’ high feature window, accenting the soaring cathedral ceilings, wood burning fireplace and custom millwork. This room sits open to the formal dining room with a glass block feature wall, and a sliding French door leading into the kitchen. Alternatively, the kitchen can be accessed from the main hallway.
The kitchen is spacious, featuring quatrz countertops, modern white shaker style cabinets, and high end Stainless Steel appliances. Alongside the breakfast bar is the south facing window-filled family room, and patio doors leading out to the fully fenced backyard.
Up the stairs to the second level; the first thing that you will notice off of the main hallway is the Juliette balcony overlooking the main floor living room, and those 12’ windows filling the space with natural light. On either side of the hallway are two generous bedrooms – one with a private south facing balcony, and a third room that can be used as a den, bright and airy playroom, or an additional bedroom. This room features cathedral ceilings, a wood burning fireplace, and a walk-in closet with plumbing and electrical rough ins for a laundry room. The full main bathroom is accessed from the hallway to the den.
The third floor of this home is the primary bedroom retreat. Bookshelves wrap around the stairs leading up, and you enter into the dressing area of the suite with the en suite bathroom to your right. The en suite features Corian countertops, double sinks, a curbless shower with rainfall shower head, and a soaker tub. The bedroom area of the suite is filled with windows, and sloped ceilings; making it feel like a private loft in the trees. A study area, or small den leads to the door leading out to your private rooftop terrace. Picture yourself taking a moment at the beginning, or the end of each day to just sit and watch the city from your perch in the trees.
Inside access to the garage is in the partially finished basement, where there is currently a laundry room, workshop and plenty of storage. The workshop area can easily be transformed into your home office, study, or fitness room; and there is a door leading into the basement on the east side yard of the home for easy access to storage.
The backyard is fully fenced, filled with trees, and perfect for entertaining friends and family. There’s lots of room for the kids to run and play while the adults enjoy a game of Bocce, or Ring Toss, or just sit and catch up.
Walk the kids to school at Elmdale Public School, Fisher Park Middle School, and to play at Fisher Park Playground, Hampton Park, or Iona Park. For a fun day out, head over to Dow’s Lake for a day paddling on the water, or to the Experimental Farm to see the animals at the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum.
