About our home

Our semi-detached house in the central neighbourhood of Old Ottawa South is charmingly modest but impeccably maintained. Highlights include a large, light-filled kitchen and a tree-shaded front porch. We're just half a block from boutiques, pubs and fine restaurants along Bank Street, and public transit that will take you quickly to Parliament Hill and the Byward Market (about 20 minutes by bus). We're a five-minute walk from the Rideau Canal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that become a huge outdoor skating rink each winter.
