One Zero Two Greenfield Avenue

Urban living at its best.

Expertly designed, beautifully built and less than 10 years old: Welcome to Canal East in Old Ottawa East.This 10-unit townhome development was designed by Ottawa’s renowned Hobin Architecture and built in 2014 by multi-award-winning eQ Homes just a block away from the historic Rideau Canal.Tucked in the northern triangle of Old Ottawa East that’s bordered by Echo and Colonel By drives, this is a location that’s close to everything — downtown, University of Ottawa, the Rideau River, Hurdman Station, the General hospital campus, Lansdowne Park and so much more!

The neighbourhood registers an impressive 99 out of 100 bike score, but if a car is in your plans there is a private garage with inside entry access and a carport for covered outdoor parking as well.

The home itself is designed for urban living, with a contemporary exterior — featuring two balconies! —and an efficient open-concept interior. The ground floor opens into a bright roomy foyer with handy powder room. Upstairs is all about elevated main-floor living on the second floor, which boasts floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall windows for maximum natural light and an open-concept and spacious layout.

Walls are a fresh, crisp white, while hardwood flooring and stairs add warmth. There are also clever details such as the floating built-in cupboards and picture ledge in the dining/kitchen area, light wood contemporary kitchen cabinets that are right on trend, balcony access from the kitchen for a back-deck feel and a handy island breakfast bar.

Two secondary bedrooms, a full bathroom and the laundry room are found on the third floor, with the primary suite on its own on the fourth floor for maximum privacy. The top-floor suite includes access to the canal-facing balcony to the west, while the balcony off the kitchen faces east, letting you follow the sun around the house.

If no-maintenance, convenient urban living with plenty of elbow room is what you seek, this home is for you.
