Charming sunlit townhouse in Byward market area

Charming flat roof house from the turn of the last century. Two original row houses (including one that served as a corner store) were tastefully joined and converted into a modern condo in the 1970's. Three good sized bedrooms with double closets and 2 full bathrooms. A study/office as well. Washer, dryer and storage space in unfinished basement.

Corner property that is flooded with light. Old wooden floors in open concept living-dining area, and Portuguese ceramic floors in kitchen and bathrooms. New wooden floor upstairs in bedrooms and office. Mezzanine creates amazing open space in living area with 20 foot high ceiling with exposed chimney pipe. Great space for hosting.

There is a small courtyard outside the kitchen (with sliding glass doors) with room for a small table and chairs and a BBQ. I move some plants there for the spring/summer/fall. Good for keeping bikes too.

The unfinished basement houses the washer and dryer, iron and ironing board and has lots of space for storage (including bikes in the winter).

Furniture is a combination of mostly wooden furniture from our most recent time in Nepal and India with some solid Canadian pieces. Some art work from around the world and few lovely plants. All complemented by some IKEA-type beds and such.

Location is fantastic - walking distance from shops and restaurants in the Byward market. University of Ottawa campus is a 20 minute walk away, as are Parliament, the National Arts Centre and the National Gallery. Bus stop at the corner across the street. And the property has an outdoor parking spot on the premises.
