This magnificent Victorian Estate represents a rare opportunity not only due to its quality and architectural integrity but also its location. This prestigious property is located only steps from the residences of the Prime Minister at 24 Sussex Drive, the Governor General and the French Ambassador. The residence occupies a fabulous 13,550 square foot corner lot that is fully fenced. The curb appeal of this beautiful residence is simply unsurpassed.

The Estate comprises a picture-perfect eight-bedroom, six-bathroom turn-of-the-century Victorian Residence complemented by a wonderful brick detached two-storey Coach House that could be re-developed to suit a new owner’s needs. As this gated Estate is located on the corner of Mackay Street and Charles Street, there is ample scope for a new owner to imprint his or her style. This property was owned by one family since the early 1900’s and is now being offered for sale by the second owner. The current owner has upgraded the infrastructure to develop a “Smart House” that includes a state-of-the-art security system, advanced audio-video system with built-in speakers, internet access in all rooms and whole-house surge protection while remaining respectful of the home's heritage. Upgrades extend to a water conditioning system, automated irrigation system, air purifier systems, central air conditioning, and more.

This property features an important entrance through a wrought iron gate that leads to an expansive verandah. The residence is entered through an imposing, beautifully carved wood door opening to the vestibule and spectacular grand foyer with adjacent banquette sitting area with a fireplace. The main floor features 10-foot ceilings, intricate plaster mouldings, and many other period architectural details. The foyer opens to a large living room with a wood-burning fireplace, to an adjacent family room featuring built-in oak bookcases with glass doors, and also accesses the side verandah overlooking the gardens. This double living room may be partitioned by closing the floor-to-ceiling Victorian solid-oak pocket doors. The dining room, with its original stained-glass windows, is suitable for formal entertaining and opens to the wrap around verandah and gardens. A bright butler’s pantry with well-organized and original wood built-ins adds to the richness and character of the home and facilitates formal dining. The kitchen has been transformed to 2009 standards with its 48-inch stainless steel gas range, double ovens, panelled refrigerator and fantastic centre island with hanging fixtures. The kitchen is bright and enjoys beautiful garden views. There are two kitchen entrances from the formal areas and two doors accessing the gardens, including a charming glass-enclosed side vestibule from the Coach House and south-east garden.

The second floor is reached by either the grand staircase or a back staircase and has eight-foot eight-inch ceilings. There is a rich, inviting den with a fireplace, four bedrooms including a second master bedroom-style suite and three full bathrooms some with unique original fixtures.

The master suite is currently located on the third floor. This third floor retreat has a turret sitting area, master bedroom, dressing room and spacious ensuite bathroom. There is also a study with access to the rooftop which could potentially include a deck, and an additional bedroom. The views of the Parliament Buildings from the third floor study are simply spectacular.

The basement has been upgraded and has a "tradesman's" bathroom. It has also been plumbed to facilitate the installation of a wine cellar, but is currently used primarily for storage.

The property is beautifully landscaped and features in part roses bushes, lilacs, lilies, hydrangeas, various flowering trees, ornamental grasses, and spiraea hedges. It has a flagstone path through the gardens that passes by a stunning, sculpted white Carrera marble fountain and leads to a large flagstone terrace off the kitchen.

This is a unique Canadian offering. It integrates sympathetically the old and the new into a harmonious and functional dreamproperty.
