Sandy Hill Ottawa Real Estate

With a population of just over 12,000, Sandy Hill is a cozy residential area with plenty of parks, a canal area and a quaint downtown with plentiful shopping. Sandy Hill is situated east of downtown Ottawa, and is considered a bedroom community for the thousands of workers who make their living in the more urban city of Ottawa. An attractive canal, the Rideau Canal, also known as the Rideau Waterway, runs along the western edge of Sandy Hill. The canal is edged with sidewalks and there are several walking bridges for people who want to cross. The Byward Market area of Sandy Hill is a popular meeting place for residents who want to partake of the many restaurants, shops and galleries that make up this public market. Weekends at Byward Market are bustling and happy affairs, with street musicians helping to make this a lively entertainment spot. 

The proximity to the University of Ottawa makes Sandy Hill a frequent destination for students who want to get away from university life. The influx of dollars spent by students helps boutique shops and local business owners to thrive, despite the small population. Restaurants are one major draw, with casual but fun dining in places like the Sandy Hill Lounge and Grill offering everything from sandwiches to pizza to grilled seafood. 

Sandy Hill is overall a quiet neighborhood. Older buildings have been transformed into loft-style apartment buildings and condominiums with prices ranging in the neighborhood of the low 200s for purchases and rental units going for between $1,500 and $1,800. Prices have remained steady, but a subtle increase recently suggests that the economy in and around Sandy Hill is healthy.
