THEY DON'T CALL THIS MAPLE GROVE FOR NOTHING...
... the large lots packed with mature century old trees gives this street a feeling of tranquility and privacy that you would normally only feel in a country setting. Each season brings its own pleasures, whether its the vibrant colours of the autumn Maples, a walk amongst those same trees weighted down by fresh powder snow, or relaxing and entertaining your friends in the wonderful 27´x 17' Gazebo surrounded by the flowers and landscaped gardens during the summer months.
The remote feel you get when living on this street often gives you a sense of stress release as you arrive home… and yet, here in the Aylmer sector of Gatineau, you have all the conveniences of a modern city.
The shopping & the business centre only is only 2km away. Even closer, is access to the National Capital Region's almost 1000km of multi-use pathways shared by cyclists, skaters, runners and walkers alike. We even have 5 golf courses, the Aylmer Marina and a beach all within 4km.
The Champlain Bridge is only 5 minutes away, offering all that the beautiful City of Ottawa has to offer.
It is a two storey Tudor-styled house, custom built in 1987. It has 4 large bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a finished basement and a 26´x24´ double car garage with a 12´ ceiling - the double width driveway can park up to 6 cars.
It's an open concept home with the family room, kitchen, breakfast area, dining room, living room, powder room and laundry nook all on the ground floor. This floor features solid oak floors, trim and baseboards.
The family room and living room (now a home-office) share a 2-sided wood burning fire place.
The kitchen is equipped with Miele appliances including a convection oven/microwave, steam oven, warming drawer, induction cook top and a Frigidaire fridge and dishwasher.
The laundry nook contains a Maytag top-load washer and GE front-load dryer.
The four bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms are on the 2nd floor. The entire 2nd floor was renovated in 2017 with birch hardwood floors throughout. The same year, both the main and ensuite bathrooms were completely gutted and renovated with features that include a heated ceramic floor, porcelain or ceramic walls, a quartz counters top, stone sinks, LED lighting, all new fixtures and a glass shower enclosure.
The property is 150´x150´ (22,500 sq ft) with an 80 foot multi-level and multi-textured (red cedar and stone) deck and patios. On the deck sits the 27´x17´ screened-in cedar gazebo which is currently furnished with a sitting area, dining area and outdoor cooking/BBQ area. The lower patio sports a 20´x12´ pergola.
All outside furniture and accessories can be negotiated with the sale.
To store garden tools and accessories, there is a new (2019) 10´x12´ vinyl garden shed, a 4´x3´x5´ cushion storage container and over $5,000 in landscaping tools that can also be negotiated with the sale. These include a John Deer ride-on lawnmower with a trailer, a 10.5hp 29" snowblower, a Husqvarna gas leaf blower, an electric power washer and a variety of other assorted garden tools.
The roof was redone in 2016. In 2015 a new 4 ton Bryant combination heat pump & central air conditioner was installed along with a new forced air electric furnace and expanded duct work. A new Culligan water softener was installed in 2017, and a new cold water tank in 2019.
These are just some of the improvements and features of this wonderful home... it truly is a home that must be seen... and at this price point a rare opportunity to obtain both value and a wonderful lifestyle.
The asking price is $850,000, terms are flexible. Property and school taxes total $5,300/yr. The utilities are $2,900/yr.
An Opportunity For You
So why are we leaving after 32 years? My wife and I have been empty nesters for awhile, and so we have been downsizing over the past couple of years. We bought a condominium so that we can travel more (COVID permitting), and so... its time to sell our little piece of paradise.
This presents an opportunity for interested buyers... because we are selling privately, you can deal with us directly, or if you wish to bring your own "Buying Agent" to act as an intermediary, we are comfortable with that as well.
In addition, this relaxed transition has given us lots of time to move... therefore we’re flexible when it comes to closing dates.

Mark and Christiane will be happy to answer all your questions or arrange a "COVID Style Viewing".
