Longfields, Ottawa, K2J 5H5
Welcome to 253 Deerfox Drive in Barrhaven, Ottawa. This three bedroom, four bathroom Basswood model by Tartan has been updated from top to bottom by original owners. Attention to detail is evident in the tasteful upgrades on all three finished levels.
The front yard offers both beauty and low maintenance: landscaped river rock and perennial plants extend from the street to your poured concrete steps and porch. Garden boxes with perennials line the path to the backyard gate.
The custom front door features unique wrought iron decoration on both the door and transom window. This elegant piece sets the tone for your generous foyer, which is appointed with ceramic tile and a wide hall closet. From the foyer you’ll have access to the single-car garage and the powder room with updated vanity and light fixture. All the doors in this home have updated matte black hardware, and the main level is freshly painted (2022). You’ll also find crown molding throughout the first and second levels, and decorative medallions around most light fixtures.
Hardwood flooring extends throughout the main level. A tasteful archway leads to your formal dining room with space to seat eight. Enjoy a comfortable evening in the living room around the gas fireplace with a custom mantle.
The kitchen, with arch entry-way, is updated and features stainless steel appliances, a marble backsplash with decorative medallions, neutral cabinetry and new door hardware. Featuring high-end granite countertops and a coated double sink, this kitchen offers both elegance and functionality. It flows naturally into the spacious morning room with a cathedral ceiling, updated light fixture and custom decorative window.
The morning room enjoys walk-out access to the floating two-tier cedar deck. The deck features space for a barbeque and a built-in table with bench seating for eight. Step from the deck to the patio with interlock paving. Fencing on all sides and privacy screens keep this oasis feeling tranquil and intimate. Perennial gardens and river rock landscaping complete the backyard, which is shaded by a red jade flowering crabapple tree.
The staircase to your second floor has been updated with new carpeting, railings, and decorative metal spindles. Hardwood flooring and crown molding continue on the second floor. Two south-facing bedrooms offer closets with natural wood doors and updated hardware. They share access to the full bathroom with tub/shower. For your convenience, this home offers second-floor laundry facilities.
The primary bedroom enjoys north-facing views and a spacious footprint. The walk-in closet is outfitted with custom, boutique-style shelving, drawers, and built-in organizers. In your ensuite bathroom you’ll find a jacuzzi tub, an updated vanity, a separate standing shower, and large medicine cabinet for storage.
The finished lower level is appointed with durable laminate and a cushioned subfloor for comfort. Two large windows let plenty of light into this space, which is ideal for a recreation room, home office, or hobby space. You’ll find a full bathroom with heated floors, a standing shower and extra linen storage. Also a spacious walk-in closet for seasonal storage and a large unfinished storeroom with built-in shelving.
