A standout home for your standout lifestyle.
An extraordinary piece of contemporary architecture located in Old Ottawa East
174 McGillivray is a 3-storey, 3 bed 4 bath, semi-detached, energy efficient home that understands there is more to life than what you see on the outside. That’s why this extraordinary piece of contemporary architecture, located in Old Ottawa East—just a block away from the Rideau canal and the Flora Footbridge—is not only eye-catching, it’s meticulously designed to be a reliable homebase for any lifestyle.
Each of its three stories has its own story to tell of seamlessly fulfilling its role in everyday life. Yet, when it comes to upholding the home’s exceptional reputation for award-winning, high-end design and premium features, they are synonymous. Every square foot delivers quality, with opulent light fixtures, soaring 9-foot ceilings, a gorgeous selection of porcelain tiles exclusively from Eurotile, quartz for all countertops, and other upgraded finishes from the reputable Astro Design Centre.
The story begins in the foyer—its prologue—where a reclaimed wood accent wall and a ceiling open to the living space above, decorated by a brilliant chandelier and glass railings, create the setting of an upscale atmosphere. The first floor carries with it a range of capabilities in its realm. It’s composed of a truly versatile room that can take any form—say, an office, or an extra bedroom—accompanied by French doors leading out to the fenced yard, a full bathroom, and a spacious laundry room with the ability to romanticize a chore.
The main floor is the epitome of open concept done right. The lavish kitchen, stylish dining room, and comfy living room connected to a sizable balcony, come together with enough space for each room to embody its own character. Having an island in the kitchen is one thing, but in this GOHBA award-winning kitchen designed by Laurysen Kitchens, is an additional custom island that moonlights as the best spot in the house for brunch in the morning, or a drink in the evening.
On the third floor, two elegant and oversized bedrooms teamed up with two exquisite bathrooms to make up the perfect spots to start and end the day. Generous in space and in windows, the huge primary bedroom includes a custom built-in wall closet equipped with lights, drawers, and soft close doors—simplifying routine without disturbing the peace. The ensuite bathroom with dual quartz vanities and dual shower heads adds the cherry on top of a personal oasis.
Atop the last set of stairs is the huge rooftop terrace, a private outdoor getaway with endless possibilities. Relax and kick up your feet or host a BBQ, either way there will be a gorgeous backdrop offering a fresh perspective of the coveted neighbourhood. After all, point of view is a crucial element in tying together a beautifully-crafted story.
