The penthouse in 12 Stirling Avenue celebrates luxury in its design and interior decoration. Built in 2016, this condo of 2258 sq ft boasts two bedrooms and two bathrooms with plenty of room for any family to enjoy the interior space enclosed within Yard & Station, a four-storey schoolhouse in Hintonburg designed by award-winning architect Barry Hobin.
The schoolhouse, originally built in the 1930s, was purchased and renovated in 2013 to create upscale loft apartments. Despite the modernization of the interior and exterior spaces, the aesthetic of the 1930s was preserved to maintain the heritage of the building and the iconic symmetrical facade that decorates the urban neighbourhood.
The condo building has a garage entrance, which previously served as the school’s main entrance. The garage offers direct access to the units using stairwells and semi-private elevators. For those with visitors, additional parking space is provided at the ground level.
One unique characteristic of this condo building is the lack of corridors. Thanks to its innovative floor layout, the lofts extent from front to back and no corridors are necessary. The ingenious design allows each loft to be filled with light radiating from the tall windows on both sides. The residents of these spacious units also have access to one common terrace plus three private terraces.
The penthouse currently on sale, unit #303, was designed as a “blank canvas.” It is considered a custom home, and it was designed for the lifestyle of the first owner. However, the condo’s functional design is a fit for anyone that decides to purchase the unit.
The condo building has rightfully earned distinctions and has been awarded by the Ontario Home Builders’ Association and the Greater Ottawa Home Builders’ Association. Once you take a look at it, you know it deserved more than a round of applause.
Hobin’s goal is to create extraordinary homes through good architecture and buildings that become part of the city’s landscape. Yard & Station maintains the historical context of one of the city's most desired neighbourhoods. Its historic charm is still ingrained in the renovated schoolhouse.
The residents of Hintonburg enjoy a great community of growing families, young professionals and artists. With its unique boutiques, cafes, famous breweries and community festivals, the neighbourhood is a celebration of artistic spirit and has earned its distinction as an up-and-coming neighbourhood in Ottawa.
The inside is a breathtaking example of loft luxury. An elevator opens directly into the unit from the garage, revealing a living area that boasts high ceilings, large windows, and thanks to open concept layout, exquisitely designed kitchen area is also visible. The bedrooms are tucked away in the West wing of the condo including the master bedroom has a walk-in closet and lavish ensuite bathroom.
For those who like entertaining, the condo has a sculptural staircase that leads to the sky room with a wet bar and a fireplace, while the room also opens to a 1060 sq ft rooftop terrace. It is an extravagant outdoor living space that has a hot tub and captivating views of the downtown area, Parliament Hill and the Gatineau Hills.
