Living in Ottawa

Last updated on May 11th, 2021 at 01:15 pm

Ottawa, as a capitol city, enjoys many perks for home owners that other cities just can’t compete. Ottawa offers world-class fine dining, arts and entertainment venues, the Ottawa Orchestra and the sophistication, stature and amenities of an international business centre and tourism and convention destination.

Urban Ottawa Real Estate

For those who enjoy an urban lifestyle, Ottawa homes range from quaint, turn-of-the-century stone houses to high-rise condominiums and from cozy heritage apartments to large country estates – all within a short distance to the heart of the city. If you’re considering living in a cosmopolitan city within walking distance to the heart of the city and its night life, the Ottawa area has a wonderful range of choices for urban living.

Ottawa Real Estate

One of Ottawa’s appeals is its marriage of urban sophistication with pure country charm. The Ottawa downtown real estate core is surrounded by cozy Ottawa neighbourhoods, and just beyond them lie fields and farmlands. It doesn’t take more than about 20 minutes in any direction to reach the country from the city, and there are many small villages and rural communities within easy commute to Ottawa. In fact, over 90% of the Ottawa region’s area is rural, providing a host of choices when you are looking for a rural Ottawa real estate lifestyle.
