A completely modernized and huge flat-style apartment in a “century” structure in Ottawa’s central Lowertown East neighborhood. The apartment is part of a purpose-built duplex constructed in 1892 in a residential enclave bordered by the bank of the Rideau River (at Wurtemburg St.), St. Patrick St. and Cobourg St. The area is increasingly referred to as Macdonald Gardens because it encompasses the historic Macdonald Gardens Park.

Transit is also available: major transit routes serving Ottawa and with connections to Gatineau are located on the next corner at Cobourg St. The property has excellent access to the Macdonald-Cartier Intraprovincial Bridge to Gatineau, Highways 5 North and 50 East.

Neighborhood amenities (within 15 minute walk) include 2 indoor pools (one is a 2 minute walk), a public, outdoor NHL-sized skating rink, the Rideau River path system for running/walking, two major grocery stores, specialty shops and restaurants in the Byward Market and New Edinburgh, an independent movie theatre, and more.

This three-bedroom (floor plan available on request) flat is exceptionally clean and comfortable. There are new mattresses, linens and dishes, high-quality modern and vintage Scandinavian furnishings, and a fantastic 50' plasma flat-screen. The apartment has its own furnace, central air conditioning and on-demand hot water service.

Private, keyless entry with large walk-in closet

About Allison

I live in the downstairs apartment with my family and I work for the Parliament of Canada. Originally from Vancouver,British Columbia, we moved to Ottawa 13 years ago and love it.

I like to get places on foot and this location is perfect. The downtown CBD is 30 mins of walking. Governor General's and Rideau Falls are 30 mins in the other direction. Byward Market is 15 and New Edinburgh village is 15 the other way.

Je parle français. Yo hablo espagnol.

Allison purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Allison chose Lindenlea - New Edinburgh

We love the neighbourhood. Is is a quiet downtown suburb: close to everything with a mix of families and young professionals. We moved to this property in order to have some 'fun' gutting and renovating an old building.

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment is beautifully laid out with large dining and living rooms as well as three bedrooms nicely spaced out in separate corners of the apartment. The large, private, covered, balcony is a gorgeous place to sit and have a coffee or glass of wine in any weather. There are windows on every side of the house so the light is always streaming in somewhere.

Allison went above and beyond! This house is gorgeous and so comfortable. The bedrooms are separated for extra privacy, the location is central, the house is spotless and beautifully decorated. Allison has thought of everything you might need to make you feel at home. It was such a relaxing stay, I would recommend this property to everyone!

Owner's Response: Thanks Michael! Please come again! I need to correct you on something for anyone reading these reviews though - at 1,400 sqft this apartment is hardly "little" :)

Great family place in Ottawa

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! The location was central and convenient. There was lots of space for 5 of us and it was very clean. We had all the amenities we needed. Allison was a lovely hostess! We appreciated having food basics available and a binder with neighbourhood information. Thanks again for everything!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Allison’s house was great. Clean and spacious and well maintained. Kitchen was stocked with all the essentials for a good breakfast and then some! Also, the bathrobes were a nice touch!

Extremely well prepared for families. My little ones loved the toy kitchen and puzzles! It was also handy to have access to a stroller!

A home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using this type of service. The apartment was wonderful. The extra's (food items) that Allison provided were a very pleasant surprise. Allison provided extra information regarding Ottawa, things to do, directions and where to find things we were looking for. Allison was a wonderful ambassador. I would definitely recommend her apartment to others. Thank you!
