This contemporary home raises the bar in Colonel By Drive

In 858 Colonel By Drive, a home embodies contemporary style. The Old Ottawa South single-family home with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms is for sale by Charles Sezlik from Royal Lepage Team Realty. The house is in one of Ottawa’s most popular lanes and has a front row seat to the city’s social and cultural highlights. It is minutes from Lansdowne, the Glebe and downtown.

The property is unique in the neighbourhood. The geometric architecture is emphasized by the brick, metal, wood and glass materials. The presence of natural light in every room is evident from the start. From the outside, the balconies, garage and rooftop terrace can be seen, giving you a hint of the amazing features you will see inside.


The interior stands in contrast with the exterior. Its design is cleaner than the outside, but the texture of the wood remains in the flooring. The white coloured walls and natural light help whatever you want to put in your living room stand out. And if you want to see some nature, the large window provides the perfect view.


The room is open concept with the dining and living room sharing the natural light and flowing layout. No doubt the unique golden lamp ceiling will catch everyone's eyes. 


The primary example of contemporary design in this home is the kitchen. The luxury is visible the moment you step in. The kitchen features high-quality finishes in marble and hardwood with stainless steel appliances. With three golden lamps, the kitchen island is bursting with light.


The master bathroom is functional with a tub, a shower and two sinks. A spacious bathroom like this one has everything you will need.


The backyard is will leave you speechless. It keeps the strong design elements but switches the hardwood floor for a more metallic look and even includes hints of red brick. The space offers the perfect entertainment setup and most importantly, it is private. With a Jacuzzi, a deck, a fireplace, and plenty of space guests will sure enjoy stepping into the home.


This contemporary residence is on the market. Save the listing with your Homicity dashboard or contact by Charles Sezlik (613-744-6697) from Royal Lepage Team Realty if you can’t wait to see it.
