This is another in the short series we are doing on some of the rural communities surrounding Ottawa. Great places to live and check out with active markets and plenty of real estate for sale.
This town of approximately 2500 (2011 census) is ideally located and has easy access to Greely, Metcalfe, Manotick and Kemptville. Essentially it is another bedroom community for Ottawa as well it serving the local rural area. There are several different access points if you commute into the city including River Rd (with access via Roger Steven’s to the 416), Stagecoach Rd and Manotick Station Rd.
This a very friendly community and an active one with a community centre, recreation complex and several parks that include Hockey, T-ball, Basketball, softball. At the end of the town’s main road where it meets River Rd there is W.A. Taylor Park. This park has a boat launch to the Rideau River and a delightful picnic area. The town has a post office, a local convenience store plus a large Foodland grocery store. The Red Dot café, a well-known restaurant and one of our favourite places to dine, is located in the same complex as Foodland. Major shopping complexes are located just a short drive away in Kemptville or Barrhaven. We have always enjoyed the drive from Osgoode along the Rideau River to Kemptville. It is a very scenic and relaxing route to drive.
There is a real mix of housing from roughly the early 1900’a right up to modern newly built homes. There are older stone and brick homes, lots of bungalows and two story homes as well. In general, prices range from the mid $250,000s up into the $700,000s. There are lots of tree lined, family friendly streets with homes sitting on nice large lots. In other words, there is something for everyone’s tastes and budget.
