Ottawa area home for sale with land
Lanark County is wonderfully positioned within easy striking distance of the nation’s capital, making it possible to have a country retreat with a reasonable commute (45 minutes to Kanata; 1 hour to downtown Ottawa).
The Lanark Highlands are beautiful and the immediate area offers villages (Hopetown and Lanark) with a variety of amenities, including local schools, library, restaurants, and a variety of professional offices.
The larger towns of Almonte, Carleton Place and Perth are a short distance away and offer additional amenities such as excellent hospital facilities, a greater range of shops and restaurants, live music and theatre, professional offices and other services, community centres and churches, classes and day camps for children, and a wider range of schools.
Almonte, just 20 minutes away, is home to an amazing range of festivals and special events throughout the year, including Almonte CeltFest and PuppetsUp! International Puppet Festival. Perth is equally strong on the festival front and the whole region is rich in cultural activities.
Downhill skiing and other snow sports are offered at Calabogie (30 minutes) and Pakenham (30 minutes), and three golf courses can be found within a 15-minute drive of the property. The area is full of lakes and trails, along with opportunities for fishing, boating, hiking, cycling, snowmobiling and, of course, hunting.
