Our house is situated in a quiet neighborhood within 10 minute walking distance of the Ottawa River and bike paths. We are also within walking distance (10 min.) of a shopping mall (with large grocery store), public library and convenience stores. We are 20 minutes walk from Westboro, a trendy area of Ottawa with lots of shops and restaurants. Our house is a 12 minute drive or 30 minute bike ride to downtown with all the major attractions.
