Lower Town Real Estate

Lower Town is on the south side of Ottawa, just east of the downtown core. It's in the Rideau-Vanier Ward and is the oldest area of the city. Rideau Canal borders it to the west, with the Ottawa River to the north. ByWard Market is in the southwestern part of the area, with the north and east sections being mostly residential. There are nearly 13,000 residents who call Lower Town home. There is rapid development taking place there, with new residential and commercial projects under construction and a large revitalization effort that's making the area a very desirable place to be.

Around $325,000 will get you a home in Lower Town, or you can spend up to $550,000. Within that budget range, there are some great options no matter what kind of style you're looking for. Because the area is close to downtown, most of the residential options are condos or townhouses, but there are also multi-family dwellings that are smaller and close to single family home living. As soon as you've found the right place for your new home, you can explore everything that Lower Town will offer you.

There's a branch of the public library there, a large grocery store, and plenty of smaller shops and restaurants to enjoy. Don't forget the museums and parks. Having green space around is an excellent way to relax and unwind after a stressful day, or just head out to a place where you can have some playtime with your children or a pet. The proximity to so much to do is one of the reasons that people really love the Lower Town area. Even though it's close to all the amenities, you still avoid the hustle and bustle that you'd get right in downtown. That can be a nice balance that will make you feel right at home.
