Rare opportunity to acquire this renovated architectural jewel created in the 1920s on almost one acre from superior materials and meticulous construction in one of the most prestigious addresses in the area. 

This absolute gem is a combination of charming red brick, stucco with a recently new blue tile gabled roof and sits on a stone foundation.  Affectionately named Blue Gables, this 5,000 sq. foot beauty has had extensive renovations throughout while maintaining its original charm. The three fireplaces, high ceilings, large bright rooms for entertaining, glorious custom mahogany library and year-round sunroom with slate floors make this home delightful to live, work and entertain in all year round. This is the ideal Ottawa/Gatineau location surrounded by mature trees, parks, and five golf courses!

A three-story residence plus 1,100 sq. foot private apartment, Blue Gables is at once stately yet intimate and served as a summer home for members of the Dutch Royal Family during the Second World War.  

The property is secluded from the street with mature landscaped grounds and introduces itself to arriving guests by a gated circular drive. The combination of main-floor living areas is suited to formal entertaining with a principal entryway leading to an ample foyer and powder room, spacious living and dining rooms, a library, and sunroom. For formal occasions,  the dining room has easy access to the open concept kitchen with a generous counter space, a gas stove, and fireplace. 

The main floor staircase leads from the foyer to an inviting second-floor landing with large windows overlooking the Royal Ottawa Golf Course. The second floor features a master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and a walk-in closet. There are three additional bedrooms and one bathroom with a jacuzzi soaking tub.  

The third level stairwell leads to two more bedrooms with a walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom and could be a privately located office/study or a perfect space for teens. 

The basement serves primarily as an extensive storage space, a professional wine cooler 500 bottles, a mechanical room with a double sink, a separate utility room with a new furnace which is natural gas and water heater. An entry door from the basement leads to a two car garage.

A private backyard features old English perennial gardens, a mature canopy of conifers, deciduous trees, outdoor patio dining area and firepit, which truly gives this house a delightful country setting minutes from the hub of downtown Ottawa, Ville de Gatineau, and the natural splendor of the Gatineau Park.
