What do you get when you pair a well-loved bungalow in an established neighbourhood with a designer and renovator that have vision?

An exquisitely updated home perfect for anyone seeking the benefits of urban living while getting amenities usually found in the suburbs. This thoroughly renovated 1960s home has been elevated to modern standards and tastes and checks all the boxes for a family’s needs, featuring five bedrooms, three full bathrooms, an oversized lot and 2,100 square feet of finished space.

The Property:
Set on a corner pie-shaped lot measuring almost 119 by 100 feet (irregular), this home boasts a generous yard on a quiet street that many urban homes can only dream of. The property includes several mature trees that received professional maintenance in 2021. Private, serene and landscaped, this yard offers a welcome outdoor space.

The Location:
It’s like country in the city. This home sits in a well-established residential neighbourhood peppered with parks, all within easy walking distance. It’s close to the Experimental Farm, Hog’s Back and Mooney’s Bay, the Civic campus of The Ottawa Hospital, schools and the shopping, services and amenities of Baseline and Merivale roads. It’s like a new home in a mature neighbourhood. What could be better than that?
