The region surrounding Ottawa contains many beautiful homes and offers a lifestyle second to none. Whether you are located in a small village, town or one of the larger centres, you are never far from the action, but always close to your own quiet oasis.
From a real estate perspective, the countryside offers you an opportunity to own your home at a lot less cost than for a similar size home in the city. Here you will find the large lots that you might remember for your parent’s home. Quiet wide streets where you can bike, jog or walk with your children are pretty much everywhere.
I think one of the biggest mistakes that people make is to look at a map and think that most of these towns are way out there IE too far to commute to the city. Few realize how quickly you can get into Ottawa. When we lived in the Greenboro/HuntClub area commuting by car into Ottawa during rush hour took as long as coming in from the village of Metcalfe which is only 20 minutes to the 417/174 split! The town of Russell is about 25 minutes away from the St Laurent Shopping Centre which easily matches the time most spend travelling within the city limits.
From our home office location in the town of Metcalfe, we can be in Carp, Kanata, most urban sections of Ottawa as well as Orleans in 30-35 minutes. We can also be in Kemptville, Winchester, Morrisburg in about the same amount of time.
Don’t let the maps deceive you- take a drive, come out and see for yourself what type of “Ottawa Country Homes” are waiting for you and your family to call your home.
