***Perfect for a travelling family or a small group of professionals wanting to be in downtown Ottawa - EXCELLENT ACCESS TO GATINEAU***
**Stocked with a variety of fresh breakfast foods**

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.

473 Clarence is an extremely walkable location: Parliament Hill, the Central Business District, the University of Ottawa, the historic Byward Market, the National Gallery, DFAIT, DND HQ, Rideau Falls, Rideau Hall and other destinations can easily be reached in less than 30 minutes on foot in any weather.
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.

Some important features of this unique property include:

Private, keyless entry with large walk-in closet
Off-street parking for one vehicle available

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: 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 10 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.

Why the Owner Chose Lower Town, Ottawa, ON, Canada:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
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.
