When on a quest to find the perfect new home for yourself, you should never underestimate the importance of a fine panorama. Having a nice view to look at when enjoying your morning coffee in your kitchen or having a scenic place to sit when relaxing after a hard day at work can really add positive vibes to your life. Luckily for anybody wanting to live in the nation’s capital, the Ottawa real estate market is ready to provide, offering not only condo units in tall buildings with city skyline views, but also charming homes looking over beautiful gardens.
Here are three examples of properties in Bytown with different yet desirable views:
#1 545 St Laurent Boulevard, Ottawa, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, $340,000
First up we have a budget-friendly apartment in the sought-after Le Parc development complex, part of the Viscount Alexander Park real estate market. The area is popular thanks to its proximity to not only many necessary amenities, but also to Montfort Hospital and some nice parks.
The condo unit boasts a highly advantageous location, right at the very top of the building. You can enjoy the surroundings directly from a living area featuring floor-to-ceilings windows or from the bedroom. But the best place from which to admire the panoramic views of the Ottawa skyline, including Parliament Hill and Gatineau Hills, is the generous balcony.
#2 3385 Scanlon Drive, Ottawa, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, $375,000
Next up we have a gorgeous 3-bedroom house, situated in a highly sought-after neighbourhood in the southern periphery of the city. Being a good example of Osgoode real estate, this property boasts a quiet location and at the same time is near to parks, playgrounds, the highway and Rideau River.
Both sides of the home offer pleasant views. Looking outside towards the expansive driveway, one can see a well-kept front lawn, leading up to a tree-lined street. But the real gem can be found in the back yard. It is here that you’ll find an oversized lot, dotted with mature trees and shrubs and a generous wooden deck complete with the perfect outdoor dining area.
#3 46 Amberly Place, Ottawa, 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, $950,000
We conclude our list with the most extravagant home on our list, with a price that is more than the previous two listings combined. It is situated in a peaceful cul-de-sac in the Rothwell Heights neighbourhood of the Beacon Hill real estate market, offering easy access to parks, schools, the riverbank, shops, restaurants and public transport.
The property looks over an well-maintained front lawn with a variety of colourful plants, some of them climbing over attractive arches. And then there is the oversized back yard with its lush greenery. There are not only well-groomed lawns, but also flower beds, some very attractive areas of coloured paving, and mature trees which offer plenty of shade and give an almost park-like ambiance. With all the space and natural attractions here you could surely host the garden party of your dreams.
Looking at some of these photos one might like to imagine how enjoyable it would be to see these views on a regular basis. Now we would love to hear from you!
