Because it has a lot to offer! Learn more about this area and why more people than ever are choosing to call this charming countryside neighbourhood home.

A Wide Variety of Homes to Choose From

If there’s one thing you’ll love about Stittsville, it’s the selection of stunning houses. The architectural beauty and impressive interiors have attracted a number of homeowners to the community in recent years. Whether you’re a young professional, growing family, or an active retiree, Stittsville has a home that’s right for you. Featuring condos, contemporary towns, bungalows, and forever homes, there are plenty of designs to choose from. With all the options available, you’ll never have to leave the community if you outgrow your home or need to downsize. It’s also one of the few areas that has a healthy mix of older homes and new builds. 

Attractive Prices

The prices in Stittsville are also very attractive compared to other communities surrounding Ottawa. Here, you can still find homes starting in the $300,000 to $400,000 range that offer high-quality designs and are fully equipped with all the latest modern finishings. That’s tough to beat, considering a majority of the homes in central Ottawa that are of similar size range between $500,000 to upwards of $1,000,000. 

A Friendly, Safe Community with a Village Vibe

Another reason why Ottawa residents choose to live in Stittsville is that it’s more than just a neighbourhood – it’s a close-knit community! It may have undergone a surge of recent development, but Stittsville has still managed to retain a wholesome, charming rural atmosphere. Considered as one of the best places to raise a family, this vibrant area has a small-town feel that is both safe and welcoming. You’ll instantly love the Stittsville community as soon as you arrive; it’s the perfect blend of safety and comfort in Ottawa! Not only that, but Stittsville is a live and work community. Here you can find plenty of jobs and in surrounding areas as well. And, unlike some parts of Ottawa, there are a number of English language jobs available if you’re not fluent in French.

Exceptional Schools and a Great Location

Stittsville is home to some exceptional elementary and secondary schools that are funded by government and private institutions. This ensures that your children will get to experience a top-rated education that will prepare them with care for their individual futures. Also here in Stittsville, you’ll find charming restaurants, cozy cafés, attractions like the Amberwood Golf & Country Club and Valleyview Family farm, and recreational centres like Goulbourn Recreational Complex. You’ll be within reach of several local grocery stores and shopping malls for convenience. In addition, you’ll love how close the Alexandra Grove Park and Trans Canada Trail are to the community, providing a scenic playground for the entire family.

All the Amenities You Need

It’s not easy finding a beautiful, suburban community that has all the amenities you need. But Stittsville has managed to offer the best of both worlds. With several shops, restaurants, and services spread across the community – and more within reach in Kanata and downtown Ottawa – you never have to go far to find what you need.
