Ironside Court is a quiet, coveted location in the heart of Kanata Lakes just seconds from the Kanata Beaver Pond. It truly does feel like a private oasis of a community within the neighbourhood itself. The houses are all Barry-Hobin designed and Tamarack built – they simply breathe quality and taste. Number 27, is a Model 8, the largest model designed for the street and the upgrades that the current owners insisted upon during building have made it stand out immensely…the curb appeal alone is stunning but what awaits you on the interior is absolutely beautiful.
The main floor greets you with a spacious foyer with French doors and a view inside of gleaming hardwood and crown moulding. The living room and dining room are open concept but have French doors between to create an intimate space for formal dinner parties. The gorgeous family room has custom-designed built-ins with LED pot lighting and a gas fireplace with a large mantle, accent lighting and slate surround. The main floor den adds even more living space to the main level and provides a private office area.
The kitchen is the STAR of this home. It was modified from the original plan and could not have been more well thought-out or forward thinking. Upon entry into the kitchen you will automatically take note of the floor to ceiling solid Birch cabinetry which is not only practical but aesthetically gorgeous! The ample counter space includes a custom, extended island. The kitchen’s granite was carefully chosen by the current owners; it is a rare granite called Labradorite from Norway and it is exclusively found on the coasts of Norway and Labrador…remnants from when the two land masses were one thousands of years ago. The wooden portion of the island that constitutes the kitchen’s eating area is a piece of history within this home. The wood is Old Growth Douglas Fir from Victoria and is likely thousands of years old from the area of Tofino, British Columbia. It has been reclaimed from buildings in Victoria that were built in the 1800s and are now being updated. When Old Growth wood is found here it is carefully reclaimed and recycled. The functionality of this kitchen is as good as its aesthetics. There are two sinks, one is used as a food prep sink and the other as a washing sink. There is a separate bank of cabinetry with a laminate countertop. This was done on purpose to be used when preparing yeast-based dough as granite is too cold. This is also in an ideal spot to be used for a buffet or bar area. This is truly a Chef’s kitchen with pot lighting, Sub Zero fridge and a gourmet Wolf gas stove with an indoor grill and professional grade hood fan! Head outside to the backyard deck to see a stocked herb garden….takes only steps to snip the herbs you need to prepare a feast!
The upper level is accessed up amazing Arts & Craft style hardwood stairs which bring you to a spacious landing with 5 bedrooms. The master has a coffered ceiling, large ensuite and walk-in closet. There are two bedrooms with a Jack & Jill bath and two others with a main bath to share. PLUS note the hard-to-find walk-in linen closet! There is plenty of space here for family members to have their own space plus ideal bedrooms for guests.
The yard surrounding 27 Ironside Court is truly a gardener’s garden. There are gorgeous perennial gardesn and mature trees and shrubs. The entertaining deck in the backyard has a built-in herb garden with lots of space for all you would need! Privacy is maintained by backing onto the yard of a neighbour rather than a back of a house with windows looking down on you. You are seconds from trails and parks as well as schools and only minutes from amenities but it still feels like a peaceful oasis.
This home is truly a dream come true. It would suit numerous needs for a variety of situations. Whether you are a large or small family, professionals who love to garden and cook, a couple that enjoys the outdoors, someone who appreciates quality and pride of ownership….this is the home for YOU!
