How to Find the Home That Feels Right for You


When searching for a new home, it’s important to consider a checklist of practicalities like the floorplan that works best for you, the amenities you need, the location that’s most convenient, and so on. But another critical aspect of house-hunting that’s harder to incorporate into your checklist is that your new home should feel like a home to you.


One of the best methods to find the home that feels like one is to compare a variety of options. And if you happen to be shopping around in Ottawa, the good news is you have plenty to choose from!


Check out a breakdown of three incredible Ottawa-area communities, each offering something a little different, to see which one feels the most like home to you.


Connect with Life at Wateridge Village and 360 Condos

One of the best features of the Wateridge Village community and 360 Condos is its super convenient location. If you’re looking for a home that’s close to the vibrancy and culture of Ottawa’s downtown core, but far enough out you can enjoy a calmer pace, this makes a great choice. The mix of Townhomes and Mid-Rise Suites also provides you with options in terms of the style that suits you best.


Aside from its prime location, Wateridge Village also comes with easy access to nature and all the urban amenities you want. Imagine this: heading downtown for a dose of Friday nightlife; indulging in Saturday afternoon retail therapy at the St. Laurent Shopping Centre; and going for a walk or cycle along the nearby Ottawa River on Sunday.


Do those weekend plans lift your spirits?


Live Beautifully Tucked-Away in Jardin Crossing

If a slower pace is more to your liking, Jardin Crossing in Orléans is for you. With a charming collection of stylish Townhomes, Jardin Crossing offers both convenience and community in an established neighbourhood of Orléans.


What’s great about Jardin Crossing is you can enjoy a quieter suburban lifestyle, while never being far from everything you need. Public transit and highways are close by, making it a cinch to get to Orléans for errands, great shopping, or grabbing a bite with friends. At the same time, it’s easy to get to Ottawa to attend a festival or commute to work. Plus, the nearby Millennium Sports Park and Mer Bleue Bog Conservation Area mean opportunities for recreation and nature escapes are part of your everyday.

Come On Home to Richmond Meadows

Southwest of Ottawa in Richmond is the ever-charming community of Richmond Meadows, nestled along the beautiful Jock River, offering gorgeous Townhomes and Detached Homes. If you’re envisioning a life characterized by the community values and charm of a small town, then welcome home!


The Richmond Meadows lifestyle is closely connected to nature, recreation, and convenient amenities provided by the village of Richmond. This is the place to sit back, relax and take in a breath of the wonderfully fresh air, while enjoying the endless character of community events and the familiar faces of neighbours. Meanwhile, Ottawa is never too far away for those times when you need to get into the city for special events or a little dose of urban life.
