Warm & inviting, newly renovated Art-Deco style, 3-storey/3 bedroom single-family detached home, located in Ottawa's vibrant, hip Hintonburg neighbourhood. Betwixt the Experimental Farm and Wellington St. & 3km from downtown Ottawa & Parliament Buildings.
Family-friendly Fairmont House is the perfect space to accommodate three generations on their family vacation to Ottawa, the nation's capital. Three bedrooms, two with Queen-sized beds, one with a double bed and two full bathrooms....What better way for Mom & Dad, the two kids and grandparents to enjoy their own private house (with lots of parking), minutes from parks, the Experimental Farm (with arboretum and the Agriculture Museum), Dow's Lake, bike paths and the coolest neighbourhood in Canada?
Come celebrate Canada's 150th birthday! (Our Sesquicentennial)
All the basics, great amenities, and only 2km from the Museum of Nature, the Museum of History (formerly Museum of Civilization), with its Kids' Museum, the War Museum and 3km from the Parliament buildings, National Arts Centre, National Gallery of Canada and the famous Bytowne Market.
Come to Canada Day celebrations in July (with free bus service) or the Jazz Festival, Folk Festival, Chamber Music Festival or BluesFest in summer; enjoy the Tulip Festival at Dow's Lake in the spring, and/or Winterlude celebrations on the World Heritage Site's longest ice skating rink, Ottawa's 8km Rideau Canal (only a 15 minute walk from Fairmont).
After a full day of museum touring and a short ride to the Gatineau hills to see the most beautiful display of autumn colours in the world while on a family hike in Gatineau Park, Grand-Maman & Grand-Papa can cook up a batch of homemade cookies for the kids in the well-equipped kitchen, then watch a movie with them downstairs. In the meantime, Mom & Dad can take some private time to walk down to the best pubs and restaurants in Ottawa, two blocks away on Wellington Street West or two blocks down to Preston & Somerset Streets (for authentic Chinese, Vietnamese, Italian, nouvelle cuisine, fusion, vegan or the best organic burger in Canada!) or further up into Westboro for a romantic meal and some live music. Talk, walk & window-shop at artisinal, unique boutiques in one of Ottawa's trendiest neighbourhoods, Hintonburg.
Hintonburg is actually Ottawa's new "Theatre District" with The Gladstone, Orpheus and the Great Canadian Theatre Company, all within 10 minutes walk.
Fairmont House is close to everything: Great bus and light-rail service, jogging and bike paths, etc. We're also in the theatre district and only a 15 minute cab-ride from the airport, and a three minute drive to the nearest Queensway highway ramp. And with free parking beside the house, a small backyard and cedar deck with BBQ we are only a short walk to three child-friendly parks (one with a kiddie's wading pool in the summer months, another with a small rink in winter).
Your family will love seeing Ottawa while staying at the family-friendly Fairmont House!+ More
