You’ll feel a sense of relaxation as soon as you step into this home – with soaring nearly 14′ ceilings and expansive windows offering views straight out to your private terrace. As spring approaches that view becomes filled in with greenery in the background offering great privacy while still allowing all the light in. The massive windows flood the home with natural light all day long. Both the condo and terrace are west facing!
While Charlesfort Developments completed an award-winning conversion of the building from the former Borden primary school in 2004, recent renovations to this home have resulted in a beautiful new kitchen and bath as well as smart storage spaces in both bedroom and bath!
The tall bright space features hardwood floors throughout. the kitchen is finished with granite counters including a massive breakfast bar, lit backsplash and lit upper cupboards. Smart storage in the kitchen with lots of pot drawers with a laundry room and extra storage space directly off the kitchen. The elegant bath features beautiful tiling with a luxurious walk-in shower! Extra built-in storage cabinetry was installed in the bathroom.
The spacious primary bedroom easily accommodates a king bed and views directly onto the private terrace. Custom cabinets were installed to facilitate smart storage in the bedroom as well.
Custom roller blinds are included on all windows, should you wish to filter out the light.
The outdoor terrace is extra large, providing over 364 square feet of outdoor enjoyment, with tons of space for the couch set, dining set and more. Lazy afternoon on a hammock anyone? You can also BBQ on the terrace so it’s very much like living in a private bungalow, yet while still enjoying all the comfort, convenience and low maintenance that’s only available in an a condo.
The terrace is fenced on both sides and walled at the back with both stone and gardens. The foreground of the garden gives you space to tinker with greenery and flowers if you wish, however there are also shrubs and trees beyond maintained by the condo which give you great privacy from the road as the spring leaves fill in.
Situated on the ground floor of what was once a historic schoolhouse – (The Bordon School) , this quality conversion project by Charlesfort Developments offers the super wide hallways and high ceilings and all the touches of another era with all the comforts and conveniences of this one. One of the nicest positions in the building, you’re located away from the traffic on the quiet side of the building offering a wonderful neighbourhood feel.

While you do have a parking spot included, you may find you rarely need the car, as the location doesn’t get much better for convenience. Just a couple of blocks walk brings you to Dow’s Lake – part of the famous Rideau Canal, bring a sandwich and park yourself in an Adirondack chair and people watch on the canal as well as walk, run, rollerblade, canoe, skate…. You’re also just a short walk between several of Ottawa’s most popular Hot spots including Little Italy, Chinatown, The Glebe, Lansdowne, an easy walk to downtown or to Carleton University or the Arboretum. It’s a quick walk to amenities in most every direction! And the list of those amenities are constantly improving as the intensification of Ottawa progresses forward.
