88 Defence Street
Emerald Meadows/ Trailwest, Ottawa, K2V 0N3
Welcome to 88 Defence Street in Stittsville, Ottawa. This new Oliver model by EQ Homes (2021) offers four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and over 2800 square feet of living space for your family to enjoy.
Step into the two-storey foyer, designed for both elegance and function. The front door features wrought iron decoration, and two adjacent windows are outfitted with custom California shades. A wide closet provides for your storage needs, and classic checkerboard tile extends underfoot. You’ll find the same flooring in the conveniently located powder room, complete with pedestal sink. The foyer also offers access to the mudroom complete with inside access to the two-car garage, custom cabinetry, and a butler’s pantry with additional sink and granite countertop. The insulated garage offers a comfortable workspace for hobbies.
Oak hardwood flooring extends throughout the main level. Gather around the gas fireplace in your spacious living room, set beneath a vaulted ceiling. Directional pot lights and a modern light fixture provide targeted illumination, and you’ll have plenty of natural light through the large windows. The main-level windows are equipped with mechanical blinds, which are adjustable by remote control and operate on a timer for optimal privacy. The dining room, which is spacious enough to seat eight, also offers pot lights and overlooks the backyard.
The modern kitchen is every home chef’s dream. Have a casual bite at the island with a quartz countertop and seating for four. For a touch of contemporary elegance, the stained maple cabinets of the island contrast beautifully with the neutral-toned main cabinets. Matte black hardware on your doors and pots & pans drawers beautifully complements the suite of stainless steel appliances. The custom Monogram fridge/freezer offers lots of storage space for a busy family, and is equipped with a waterline and icemaker. You’ll have a built-in quick-oven for fast reheating, a gas stove, farmhouse sink, and a whole wall of pantry cupboards. Last but not least: a butler’s pantry with sink, pantry, and drawers extends your prep space and offers even more storage solutions for your family.
This home also offers the convenience of a main-level office, which is large enough to accommodate two desks. A glass-panel door keeps noise and disturbances out for an optimal work environment.
Hardwood continues up the staircase, which is flanked by a decorative feature wall. A transom window at the top of the two-storey foyer allows natural light to flow onto the second-floor landing.
The primary bedroom enjoys exquisite privacy as well as a spacious footprint. Large enough for a king-sized bed and sitting area, you’ll have all the space you need to make this the retreat of your dreams. A sloped ceiling expands the scope of this grand space. You’ll find a large walk-in closet, and an elegant ensuite bathroom. The vanity is appointed with a quartz countertop and undermount sinks, with plenty of space to prepare for the day ahead. Enjoy the spacious shower with large format tiling, a built-in bench, and handy storage inset. Or best of all, unwind from a long day in the modern garden tub.
The tasteful design of the ensuite is echoed in the full bathroom, which is similarly appointed with quartz countertops and classic subway tiling in the tub/shower. This bathroom serves two of the secondary bedrooms, which are appointed with neutral berber carpeting. One even boasts a deep walk-in closet. The final bedroom offers an extra-special feature: an additional ensuite with a walk-in shower and quartz vanity; perfect for a guest room or nanny suite.
Outside, the backyard has been hardscaped to maximize the pleasures of an Ottawa summer. The fully fenced yard backs onto a public park, and you’ll have a gate for direct access. The interlock patio provides space to gather outdoors, set around the built-in firepit. You’ll also find perennial gardens, built-in irrigation lines, and piers for a future garden shed.
