New House in Ottawa South

Ossington Avenue
Ottawa, ON

A compact new 1800 s.f. 4-bedroom house is rebuilt on a small city lot after a fire. A big L shaped front porch is necessary for the annual neighgourhood porch parties. Tall & abundant "cranberry" double hung windows, "brick-red" siding and craftsman style detailing punch up the traditional look, which complements the historic streetscape. Stained pine window frames, maple floors, & cherry kitchen cabinets warm up the open concept spaces. Interior windows and interior French doors create simultaneous privacy and openness. Window seats add multi-functionality to rooms and cathedral ceilings create the impression of larger spaces in this "not-so-big" house.
