Blueprint's latest infill development

255 Garneau Street in Ottawa

Spacious 4-bed, 5-bath, 2,400 sf semi-detached home. Flooded with natural light.

This distinctive house consists of three levels above grade plus a fully finished basement.  All three levels above grade include 9’ ceilings.  There are three full bathrooms with two en-suites and two powder rooms.  Two of the 4 full size bedrooms have walk-in closets.  

The foyer's sunken floor and 10’ ceilings are eye-catching and the open concept makes the first floor bright and airy. The kitchen is at the heart of this space, with its large island and four-stool breakfast bar. And, a large adjacent dining room incorporates a charming built-in gas fireplace and mantle.

The middle floor offers two bedrooms, a full bathroom, a spacious laundry room with built-in cabinetry and a quartz countertop, and a family room.  The family room opens to a private backyard balcony surrounded by mature trees.

On the upper floor, the master bedroom features a spacious spa-inspired ensuite, a large walk-in closet brimming with natural light, and a large south-facing walkout rooftop patio that provides great views of the City. Also located on the upper floor, a fourth bedroom contains an ensuite bathroom.

The backyard includes an interlocking stone patio that extends from the back door, creating a perfect spot for the BBQ.  The yard is fully enclosed with new fencing and finished with landscaping and sod so you can begin enjoying it right away.

All appliances are premium grade, including a double-door fridge with a two-drawer freezer, a gas range, a stainless steel hood fan, a huge stainless steel apron sink, stainless steel dishwasher, and full size washer and dryer.

A hi-efficiency furnace, air conditioner, Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV), garage door opener, eavestroughing and downspouts are all included. Other quality finishing touches you'll find are: over 80 pot lights, upgraded trim, matching high-end quartz countertops, and large mirrors.

Bathroom and laundry room walls are insulated to reduce sound transmission.  All floors are framed with engineered floor joists to provide stiff and quiet floors, far exceeding minimum code requirements.  The party wall between units also exceeds code requirements for sound transmission.

Two parking spaces included per unit (driveway & garage).  Exceptional value.  No condo or maintenance fees!
