400 Acacia Avenue is one of the most prestigious addresses in the Old Village of Rockcliffe Park.This legendary estate is now available for sale. Designed by A.J. Hazelgrove for Mrs. Walter Bronson, the property served as the United States ministerial residence for 58 years before being transformed by its current owners through an extensive and sympathetic renovation. Now up to state-of-the-art standards, it represents an opportunity to acquire a turnkey landmark property in a superb location, with its 32,068 square feet bounded by Acacia Avenue and Buena Vista and Crescent roads. The residence, well set back from the street, introduces itself to arriving guests by a sweeping circular driveway and covered portico. A dry-laid stone wall encompasses the property and its beautifully landscaped grounds.

This three-storey residence is at once stately and imposing, as is attested by the fact that is served as home to Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward in the film Mr. and Mrs. Bridges. The exceptional curb appeal of this unique property makes it one of the most distinctive residences in Rockcliffe Park.

The main-floor principal rooms are on a scale suited to formal entertaining. The ample entry leads to a very large lobby that, when combined with the spacious living room and library, allows for entertaining on a grand scale. For formal dining, the large dining room has a privately located butler's pantry and access to the open concept kitchen and family room with access to a gorgeous south-facing terrace and screened-in porch beyond. The mudroom is bright and welcoming with bench seating. A library is located on the main floor and there is a lovely study on the second floor. A back staircase originating from the family room provides additional access to the second floor.

An imposing staircase leads from the foyer to the generously-sized second-floor landing. The second floor features a large, private master bedroom suite with a spacious ensuite bathroom and wonderful walk-in closet. There are four additional bedrooms and two additional bathrooms on the second floor. One bathroom is an ensuite and one is a larger family bathroom offering a separate shower and soaking tub and heated floor.

The third level is reached via a lovely staircase off the second floor laundry room and is home to a fantastic bedroom suite with its own walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom. There is also a privately located office/study on the third floor, making this the perfect teen or guest suite.

The basement is also accessed by two staircases. From the family room, a staircase leads to a mirrored fitness room with a three-piece bathroom and a sauna, and this area opens to the back gardens. The main staircase off the foyer leads to the large recreation room. The basement has been transformed into an immaculate, inviting living area, and there is extensive storage space and a mechanical room.

The attached garage is spacious and has a back door to the garden. There is a potting shed and numerous sun-filled outdoor areas around the property, which enjoys sunlight throughout the day.
