With a dramatic landscape of low hills and ravines, Rothwell Heights is one of Ottawa’s most prestigious neighbourhoods and as such was named one of the best in 2013. With large lots, mature trees, no sidewalks lining the winding roads and limited street lighting, the community embraces its woodland feel while being just minutes away from all the amenities of city living.
The Rothwell Heights community has considerable elevation on the banks of the Ottawa River, providing million-dollar views across to the Gatineau Hills. A unique factor to this community is that at its inception, hundreds of two-storey and split-level homes were custom-built yet maintained integrity to their time-period in the architectural elements. The home and lot sizes are very amenable to growing families and those who enjoy some nature mixed in with their urban living.

- Easy access to the Queensway is ideal for commuters.

- An active property owner’s association diligently works to maintain and improve the community.If idyllic living in an urban enclave is what you seek, you will find that and more in Rothwell Heights. Contact The Gunn Team to learn more about community offerings and to view available listings.
