Our character home backs onto the Rideau River bicycle pathway--forested with a river:)
From the pathway, you can walk to Global Affairs in 15 min or walk to downtown in 30 min. Public transport is located within 2-5 minutes walking distance from our house. In the spring/summer you can bike everywhere.
There is a 24 hour gym (Anytime Fitness) and a Starbucks 2 blocks from our home and many other amenities along Beechwood including a Metro grocery store (5 minute walk).
